not so good
11 November 2000 | by sloan123See all my reviews

I have been a long-time fan of Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies cartoons, so I found this a disopointment. They basically show parts of the carnival of the animals symphony, with some "Fantasia" rip-off visuals. Bugs and Daffy's nararation was the highlight, but even that wasn't funny. Don't get me wrong, I love classical music, but this just wasn't satisfactory.They didn't even get Mel Blanc to do the voices!
