Storyline

The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Movie is basically a collection of Warner Bros. short cartoon features, "starring" the likes of Daffy Duck, Porky Pig and Wile.E.Coyote. These animations are interspersed by Bugs Bunny reminiscing on past events and providing links between the individual animations which are otherwise unconnected. The Road Runner feature at the end consists of sketches from various RR separates (well it does in the 78-minute version anyway). Written by John Gibson

Bugs Bunny, Road Runner and all the other great Looney Tunes characters
22 April 2012 | by Petey-10See all my reviews

This movie, hosted by Bugs Bunny, contains of classic Warner Bros. cartoon shorts.The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Movie (1979) is directed by Chuck Jones and Phil Monroe.The voice artists of this movie are Mel Blanc, Arthur Q. Bryan and Nicolai Shutorov.I just saw this on a DVD and had the most fun watching it.The movie is full of funny, zany stuff.Like the whole "Kill the Wabbit" routine in "What's Opera, Doc?" Or Bugs the conductor making the opera singer go very high.Or Daffy being shot by Elmer various times in "Rabbit Fire".And the skunk Pepe Le Pew falling for the cat with a skunk painting in "For Scent-imental Reasons".The Road Runner flick is a lot of fun.It's a riot when Wile E. Coyote eats the earthquake pills.Then we have "Robin Hood Daffy" and lots of others.Certainly not a dull moment in The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Movie.
