I great feature compilation of Chuck Jones' many masterpieces., 15 July 2004
Author: Akbar Shahzad (rapt0r_claw-1) from Karachi, Pakistan

This is the first of a five-film series of Looney Tunes compilation features, two starring Daffy Duck and three starring Bugs Bunny. Bugs is in his extravagant mansion, which he calls his "humble abode". Bugs talks about comedy and the first chase, eventually coming to himself and his cartoon associates. In this middle section, we see excerpts from legendary animator Chuck Jones' best cartoons (not all: there are too many). Then, the final part of the film is one monstrous 20-minute compilation of Road Runner footage, all fitting--not seamlessly, as the animation varies vastly over a dozen years--but acceptably as one big cartoon.

The new "Bugs At Home" sequences are interesting enough, directed by Phil Monroe. Admittedly, Friz Freleng's compilations, "Daffy Duck's Movie: Fantastic Island," "The Looney Looney Looney Bugs Bunny Movie" and "Bugs Bunny's 3rd Movie: 1001 Rabbit Tales" have better and more exciting storylines, rather than being a documentary. Some of the cartoons featured, although brutally edited to fit the running time, are still quite rare, and you won't see many of 'em anywhere else. Others, like "Duck Amuck" and "Duck Dodgers in the 24 1/2th Century" you can see any time. Always enjoyable whenever you need a good dose of classic Jones.
