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

Before the end credits, Bugs Bunny chomps on a carrot and appears in the little hole and says, "Eh, dat's all, folks!" Then Porky Pig appears and says, "Hey! *I'm* supposed to sa-e-sa-sa-I'm s'posed-ta that's *my* line!" Bugs says, "Well, say it den!" Porky starts stuttering, "Eh, th-th-th, eh, th-th-th..." The hole closes on him like a door and Porky says, "Dirty guys!" See more »
You can't go wrong with Looney Tunes, right? Before 1960... A definite NO. Afterwards... The answer isn't so clear.
Here we have some anarchic, action-packed, classic 5 minute long cartoons from the Golden Age of the studio... All hacked up, and stuck into a peculiar three act storyline involving Yosemite Sam trying to avoid getting sent to Hell, Bugs Bunny as an FBI agent and an animation award ceremony.
So, basically it's a clip show, with some newly added material... The problem is, you can tell where the old stuff ends and the modern animation starts... Due to the blatant difference in style and voice-over. It's all very distracting, and only succeeds in taking your attention away from the film to trying to spot the discrepancy. It isn't difficult, put it that way.
It would help if the framing device for the old cartoons was better, as well... But, as common with a lot of the more recent Looney Tunes output, it simply lacks any kind of spark compared to the inspired chaos of the studio's heyday. In the end, you wish you were watching the classic shorts as a standalone product, instead of bothering with this diluted, overlong imitation.
To calculate it up... The original cartoons 8/10 Everything else 4/10 OVERALL 6/10 Great, now I can have me dinner...
