A laugh riot
5 May 2000 | by (Ardmore, PA) – See all my reviews

This was a very original short for the Looney Tunes gang. The actual short was shown in like the first minute. The rest of it shows out takes from the short and how much 'effort' went into filming 'The Bugs Bunny 51st and a Half Anniversary Spectacular'. It was a laugh riot.
