This is the second feature-length film containing classic Warner Brothers cartoons linked together by newly animated footage. It is divided into three parts, all of which are being shown in a theater as part of a film ceremony honoring the classic Looney Tunes characters. Part 1 involves Yosemite Sam's pact with the Devil to exchange his place in Hell with Bugs Bunny, provided that Sam can lure Bugs into sin and then kill him. Part 2 is a parody of TV crime-fighting dramas as Bugs is selected by law-enforcement to find and apprehend gangster Rocky, who has kidnaped Tweety Bird for a ransom. Part 3 is an Academy Awards-like contest in which various classic cartoon shorts are showcased. Written by

'Knighty Knight Bugs' was directed by Friz Freleng. He got an Oscar and I got a carrot.

Before the end credits, Bugs Bunny chomps on a carrot and appears in the little hole and says, "Eh, dat's all, folks!" Then Porky Pig appears and says, "Hey! *I'm* supposed to sa-e-sa-sa-I'm s'posed-ta that's *my* line!" Bugs says, "Well, say it den!" Porky starts stuttering, "Eh, th-th-th, eh, th-th-th..." The hole closes on him like a door and we hear Porky saying, "Dirty guys!" See more »

Classic Warner Bros. cartoons directed by Friz Freleng are mercilessly cut and spliced into a "movie" format and mixed with framing sequences animated in 1980-81. The latter-day sequences are a too-obvious distraction from the classics, and the classics deserve to be seen in their entirety. The final sequence ("the Oswald Awards") makes the most sense, but overall this was just a bad idea. If you can, watch the complete shorts instead.
