Trivia

This is the only Looney Tunes compilation feature to not credit a director for the new bridging animation. Friz Freleng is usually listed as director in unofficial writings about the movie (in books, etc.), but in actuality he is only credited on-screen and in advertising materials as the film's producer.

boiling oil
8 July 2005 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

After the creative team that made the classic Looney Tunes cartoons stopped making original cartoons, they made compilations of varying quality (after they all died, the cartoons turned into total garbage). "Bugs Bunny's 3rd Movie: 1001 Rabbit Tales" has Bugs and Daffy as book salesmen who go their separate ways to try and sell books. Eventually, Bugs arrives in the Arabian desert, where Yosemite Sam is the sultan and has a spoiled brat son. So, Bugs agrees to read to the boy, under the threat of bathing in boiling oil if he fails.

I guess that overall, this compilation is pretty harmless. If nothing else, they still had Mel Blanc doing the voices. But are compilations really that necessary?
