This is a very good, concise collection of the best of the Bugs Bunny shorts. Unfortunately for those who have been collecting the Looney Tunes Golden Collection sets, there are a lot of repeats here. However, there are enough new items in this set that have never been released on DVD before, that it really is "essential" for fans.

Here's an updated list of the contents on each disc, along with the release year and director of each short:

Disc 1:
* Elmer's Candid Camera (1940, Jones)
* Excerpt from "My Dream is Yours" (1949)
* A Wild Hare (1940, Avery)
* How Bugs Bunny Won the West TV special (1978)
* The Old Grey Hare (1944, Clampett)
* Bugs Bunny Wild World of Sports TV special (1989)
* Baseball Bugs (1946, Freleng)
* Carrotblanca (1995, McCarthy)
* Hair Raising Hare (1946, Jones)
* Hare and Loathing in Las Vegas (2003 [unreleased], Kopp/Shin)
* Haredevil Hare (1948, Jones)

Disc 2:
* 8 Ball Bunny (1950, Jones)
* Rabbit of Seville (1950, Jones)
* Ain't I A Stinker (2010 mini-documentary)
* Rabbit Fire (1951, Jones)
* Invasion of the Bunny Snatchers (1992, Ford/Lennon)
* Show Biz Bugs (1957, Freleng)
* Bugs Bunny's Bustin' Out All Over (1980, Jones/Monroe)
* Knighty Knight Bugs (1958, Freleng)
* The Carnival of the Animals (1976, Jones/Klynn)
* What's Opera Doc? (1957, Jones)

All in all, a terrific anthology of Bugs Bunny's best. I just wish that Warner Bros. would either continue with the Looney Tunes Golden Collection sets or come up with another collectors' series that did not repeat so many of the same shorts.

Revised Note 8/25/2010: With the unfortunate cropping of the picture done by Warner Bros.

First the good news, Warner did not mask any cartoons to make them look widescreen. Those cartoons that were masked in the theaters are shown in their original full screen here, retaining all of the animation. (Most likely because they are just re-issues of the Golden Collection transfers.)
The only cartoon in question is HARE AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS, the main titles & end title are in widescreen, but the cartoon is full frame. The picture looks a little tight which makes me think this WAS a widescreen cartoon and "Center Cut" or cropped on the sides to make it full screen here.

For those with the Golden Collections (like me) Disc 2 will be the only disc of interest. It is too bad we have to re-buy all of the cartoons on disc 1 to get the new stuff on disc 2. Disc 2 seems like the "Bonus Material" that would have been in a Golden Collection if one were released this year. So add this to the Bugs, Daffy & Foghorn single discs released this year and you will get a 4-disc pseudo-golden collection.

The correct disc listing:

Disc 1: (all re-issues from the Golden Collections)
* Elmer's Candid Camera (1940, Jones)
* A Wild Hare (1940, Avery)
* The Old Grey Hare (1944, Clampett)
* Baseball Bugs (1946, Freleng)
* Hair Raising Hare (1946, Jones)
* Haredevil Hare (1948, Jones)
* 8 Ball Bunny (1950, Jones)
* Rabbit of Seville (1950, Jones)
* Rabbit Fire (1951, Jones)
* Show Biz Bugs (1957, Freleng)
* Knighty Knight Bugs (1958, Freleng)
* What's Opera Doc?

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful fact for LOONEY TOONS GOLDEN COLLECTION owners October 4, 2010
Quick note for those who own all the LOONEY TOONS GOLDEN COLLECTION: all of the cartoons on the ESSENTIAL BUGS BUNNY collection that were made before 1978 are also to be found in one of the 6 LOONEY TOONS GOLDEN COLLECTIONs.

I have all 6 of those, and so am much less interested in this collection. However, for those just starting out with getting Bugs on DVD, this disc has a nice selection.

2.0 out of 5 stars Oh so lame July 30, 2011
Verified Purchase
I love Bugs Bunny - don't get me wrong. I love it so much that I wanted to share some of the classic episodes with my two little kids (5 and 3). So I bought this. I am still looking for classic episodes to share with my kids. The first disk has a few decent to classic Bugs cartoons. The second is some 70s era rehash that clips together some classic scenes but doesn't provide whole cartoons. I'm not sure what dull normal thought this was the compilation to make. As mentioned, the first disk has a few good ones. The second is just a teasing waste of plastic.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Terrible Disapointment June 11, 2011
Verified Purchase
If you are looking for the classic cartoons you watched growing up, keep looking. Disk one has a few of them and disk two is a total waste of time. I'll watch a few of the cartoons again on disk one, disk two's "modern" bugs will never get played again.

3.0 out of 5 stars What's Bugs Doc? August 10, 2010
There is no question that there is so much joy around Bugs Bunny this year. It has been 70 years since he was introduced to the public as Looney Tunes and Warner Brothers most famous cartoon character. He has been named T.V. Guide's Greatest Cartoon Chartacter of all time back in 2002, and he is still looked upon as one of the greatest influential chartacters that many favorites like Spongebbo Squarepants and The Fairly Odd Parents always seem to take a strong page from. But with Warner Brothers ending their Looney Tunes: Golden Collection series a few years ago, their needs to be a improvement in the way we see not just Bugs be re-introduced, but the entire Looney Tunes gang be recognized with a new generation of cartoon lovers. A new collection of Looney Tunes from everyones' favorite Wabbit is finally coming to DVD, but is it worth the wait?

The Essential Bugs Bunny is a 2 disc DVD reflection of Bugs Bunny through some of his greatest tales. The cartoons have all been remastered nicely, and include a lot of fan favorites. While the DVD might be a great buy for new fans who've never seen Bugs Bunny in action. The collection includes some of Bugs Bunny's best cartoons and a few of the classic Looney Tunes specials of the 70's and 80's, but nothing new for hard core fans. Still there are a lot of great cartoons including the influential and iconic Chuck Jones masterpiece What's Opera Doc, to the Tex Avery classic where Bugs introduced his classic phrase What's Up Doc? in A Wild Hare, to favorites like 8 Ball Bunny, the Oscar-winning Knighty Knight Bugs, and the Wabbit and Duck Seaon war he and Daffy have been infused by start in Rabbit Fire.
