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.

Ridiculous Recycling.
30 July 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Another one of the quick-fix movies by the Warner Bros. studio to make some fast money off the famed Looney Tunes characters. Old cartoons starring most all the major characters are held together by an unfunny new cartoon that has book salesman Bugs Bunny telling stories to Yosemite Sam's young brat of a son in a palace in the middle of the desert. Naturally there is also Daffy Duck trying to survive the harsh desert environment. It is tough to survive this harsh cut-and-paste mess. Watch the Cartoon Network instead. 2.5 out of 5 stars.
