This is the second feature-length film containing classic Warner Brothers cartoons linked together by newly animated footage. It is divided into three parts, all of which are being shown in a theater as part of a film ceremony honoring the classic Looney Tunes characters. Part 1 involves Yosemite Sam's pact with the Devil to exchange his place in Hell with Bugs Bunny, provided that Sam can lure Bugs into sin and then kill him. Part 2 is a parody of TV crime-fighting dramas as Bugs is selected by law-enforcement to find and apprehend gangster Rocky, who has kidnaped Tweety Bird for a ransom. Part 3 is an Academy Awards-like contest in which various classic cartoon shorts are showcased. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

In Act I, "Satan's Waitin'", Yosemite Sam is reading a newspaper on a billboard with the headline: "Local Widow Inherits $50 Million Dollars." However, the text of the article describes the making of the movie "RETREAT? HELL!" (1952). Here is what it says: Camp Pendleton October 12, 1951 "Yes, it was a bit tough." That was the general, if somewhat conservative, opinion of those who had a hand in the messy business of "snowing in" the little curved valley here at camp Pendleton for "RETREAT? HELL!" When the last tubful of the salt and lime mix had been sprayed onto the hillside. We could finally stand back and view the effect created by our many days of hard labor, and it's doubtful if there was one among us who regretted those seemingly endless days of hauling, mixing and spraying, and the resulting bloodshot eyes, aching backs and lime-filled pores. Thanks be for ol' "Doc" Stufflebeam and his little black bag during those [Text continues below screen]... ... was a little more than a narrow, bumpy trail. In a few days our "cat" drivers, Gil Richardson and Walt Tucker, had leveled off a five-acre area for our base camp and over 3 miles of wide, well-graded roads. From then on the water trucks manned by Ray Dunlap and Bill Miller and the dump trucks by Paul Edgerly and Bill Dawson made good use of them hauling salt, lime and gypsum to the "snowbirds." As work progressed, trucks of all sizes and descriptions arrived by twos and threes bringing the material for the little Korean hut and huge artificial rock to be built on the breakwater on the beach at Camp Del Mar across the highway. From as far away is San Francisco came salt, lime and "gyp." [Text continues below screen.] See more »

Yosemite Sam: Any one of you lily livered, bow legged varmints care to slap leather with me? In case any of ya get any idears, ya better know yer dealin' with. I'm the hootiness, tootiness, shootiness, bob tailed wildcat in the west.

Before the end credits, Bugs Bunny chomps on a carrot and appears in the little hole and says, "Eh, dat's all, folks!"
