When Michael first arrives in Looney Tune town, and is talking with the characters, there is a store front sign on one of the background buildings that says "CJ's Toys", a nod to the famous Warner Brothers director/animator Chuck Jones, who created many of the classic Looney Tunes characters.

This movie was intended to be a kid's movie! And all of us MJ fans alike respect the movie simply because he was in it. The acting wasn't bad -- it was just on a children's level... of which it was intended! I really liked Space Jam when I was younger, I still like the movie from time to time, even. So saying it is like a Muppets movie is absurd! I do agree that Marvin the Martian should have been the villain, mainly because DeVito's character got on my nerves. I LOVE the fact that they brought a girl character... and presented her as the best ball player (aside from Jordan). During this time, we were all about political correction! I think this movie suits its own time and appeals to its intended audience.
