Sometimes, it seems like Warner Bros. went a little overboard with cartoon compilations in the '70s and '80s. If so, then at least there were a limited number. "Bugs Bunny's Wild World of Sports" is passable. It portrays an awards ceremony where one of the Looney Tunes will take home a prize for his athletic performances in cartoons, which they show throughout the movie; Daffy Duck morosely assumes that the judges have already chosen Bugs Bunny.
If this movie has any problem, it's that they cut the cartoons short; why'd they have to remove the hilarious ends of "High Diving Hare" and "My Bunny Lies Over the Sea"? But even so, the movie is a nice, silly way to pass time, even for a non-athletic person like me.
On another note, I notice that this came out in 1989, which was the year that Mel Blanc died (he was in fact the first famous person whose death I was aware of). I wish to assert that they shouldn't have produced anything after his death; his voices were really the heart and soul of the cartoons.
