Trivia

This is the only Looney Tunes compilation feature to not credit a director for the new bridging animation. Friz Freleng is usually listed as director in unofficial writings about the movie (in books, etc.), but in actuality he is only credited on-screen and in advertising materials as the film's producer.

I'd have preferred a plain "best of" instead.
14 February 2015 | by jadompierreSee all my reviews

I've been watching Bugs Bunny and the rest of the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies bunch for as long as I can remember. I grew up in the 60's before so many of the cartoons were gutted due to concerns about violence, and before they were edited for time.

This vid, and the others in the series, makes use of all the old cartoons and splices them together in an effort to create some kind of common time line, and I supposed if you hadn't seen the originals it would be pretty slick, but for me it doesn't work very well. Hiccupy, if that's even remotely a word, is how I would describe it. Little modifications, some substantial cuts, and the overlying *effort* needed to fall into the new storyline takes away a lot of the magic for me.

But the cartoons are good, solid classics. Watch it for those.
