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.

Very Good
4 March 2019 | by afonsobritofalvesSee all my reviews

Although the idea of making films with Looney Tunes short films has already been used, this film is not behind the others, I think it's better, it has a great set of intelligent jokes, fun stories, interesting characters, among many other points positive experiences that will entertain children and adults. Highly recommend.
