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.

Bryan is Elmer Fudd.June Foray (who is 94 years old today!) is Granny and some others.Shepard Menken is Old Storyteller.Lennie Weinrib is Abadaba.Bill Roberts is Michigan J. Frog.I had most fun watching this.As did my 7-year old cousins.It's hilarious when Daffy pretends to be the stuffed duck.Or Sylvester trying to catch the gigantic Tweety in the beanstalk tale.Not to forget Sylvester as the Pied Piper and Speedy Gonzales doing his thing.These Looney Tunes tales are great fun- for both kids and adults.
