Jones fails to recapture the magic
26 September 2015 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

A 1980 TV special that featured three new Looney Tunes cartoons, all from the great Chuck Jones and featuring voice work from Mel Blanc. Unfortunately, there's nothing great about this. The first cartoon is Portrait of the Artist as a Young Bunny, which has Bugs Bunny dreaming of the adventures of kid versions of himself and Elmer Fudd. The second cartoon is Spaced Out Bunny, with Bugs being launched to Mars where Marvin the Martian and his pet Abominable Snowman await. The third is a Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote cartoon called Soup or Sonic. The third is the best of the bunch but all are lame attempts to recapture lost magic. These cartoons suffer from the same problems that plague most of the Looney Tunes shorts made after the classic era. Namely that the jokes aren't very fresh and the animation, music, and overall production is cheaper in quality. It's watchable and even gives a few laughs here and there. Just don't expect that, because Jones is involved, it will be as good as the old stuff.
