Storyline

The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Movie is basically a collection of Warner Bros. short cartoon features, "starring" the likes of Daffy Duck, Porky Pig and Wile.E.Coyote. These animations are interspersed by Bugs Bunny reminiscing on past events and providing links between the individual animations which are otherwise unconnected. The Road Runner feature at the end consists of sketches from various RR separates (well it does in the 78-minute version anyway). Written by John Gibson

Trivia

The scene in which Bugs discusses his "several fathers" was written by Chuck Jones as a way to debunk fellow animation director Robert Clampett's claims throughout the 1970s that he alone created Bugs. Clampett's name is notably missing from Bugs's list. Also missing is Ben Hardaway, who created the earliest prototype of Bugs and was in fact the originator of the name "Bugs Bunny" (Bugs being Hardaway's own nickname), though in this case Jones later confirmed that the omission had simply been an oversight, and that he would have had no qualms about including Hardaway in the gallery.

Goofs

About 5 minutes into the movie as Bugs relates the beginning of man and he points out our fourth rate star, the Sun, you can see "Start 56+0 Filter 16 Yellow" written in the middle of the Sun. See more »

Not sure if I watched a cut version, but some of these cartoons are cut!
28 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

That being said, I have to say that some of my favorite Looney Tunes cartoons are in this first collection of shorts released in the span of the late 70's and 80's (another I watched maybe more than this one was Daffy Duck's Quackbusters). Here and there I wondered if a couple of the shorts were complete; they seemed to cut down the Rabbit Fire episode down by half, an a couple others didn't seem 100% either. Still, I would highly recommend it to those looking to get into the series (if by some chance not through another route like DVD). The cartoons Duck Amuck (as Daffy goes ape against the vindictive animator) and the one involving Bugs and the Opera singer top the list, while a few others are also quite appealing like Bugs against the Bull, Daffy as a would-be Robin Hood, and at least half of the Road-Runner shorts. That part of the film, which while given 2nd billing in the title (The Bugs Bunny and Road Runner Movie), only lasts a full 20 minutes or less. The enjoyment of those shorts will depend on if you like the Roadrunner shorts to start with, but there are some choice segments that even had me laughing. Not overall a great collection of shorts, but certain shorts are stand-out here.
