Lights, camera, Looney-ness! The Spotlight is on 2 Looney Tunes movies - now remastered so that every image shines and every fine Acme product goes swoosh like new. The chase is on in Disc 1's The Bugs Bunny/Road-Runner Movie as Elmer pursues the pesky wabbit, Daffy Duck tries to elude the animator's eraser and Wile E. Coyote tears after Road Runner and Bugs. By the way, how do you catch a Road Runner? You don't! Beep-Beep! More cartoon harelarity is what's up, doc, in Disc 2's Bugs Bunny's 3rd Movie: 1001 Rabbit Tales. Our long-eared hero becomes a spinner of fantastical stories while held captive in a desert sultan's palace. Yosemite Sam is the sawed-off sidewinder wielding the sultan's sword. Mad mallard Daffy joins the fun, coping (or not) with a meanie-genie. The rest, as they say, is...hysterical!]]>
Chuck Jones directed some of the funniest shorts in the history of filmmaking, and this 1979 feature-length compilation includes several of his best cartoons. Among the 11 shorts shown in their entirety are the classics "Robin Hood Daffy," "What's Opera, Doc?," "Bully for Bugs," and "Duck Amuck," which remain as hilarious as they were when first released 50 years ago. As with any collection, the viewer wonders why some films were omitted or cut ("Long Haired Hare" combs footage from several Road Runner shorts into a 20-minute montage weakening the pacing). These caveats aside, The Bugs Bunny Road Runner Movie provides a showcase not only for Jones's razor-sharp timing, but for the work of his exceptional crew, which included designer Maurice Noble, writer Mike Maltese, composers Carl Stalling and Milt Franklyn, and voice actor Mel Blanc. --Charles Solomon
1001 Rabbit Tales
If Bugs Bunny were to direct his signature inquiry--"What's up, doc?"--toward the modern-day Warner Bros. creative team, he wouldn't be far off. For 1001 Rabbit Tales, they've doctored up a batch of classic cartoons featuring the carrot muncher and his bumbling comrades and bundled them, near seamlessly, into a feature-length film. Here's the premise: Bugs and Daffy, both book salesmen, are competing to sell the most copies of a kids' book. Instead of burrowing a beeline to his sales territory (he should have made a left at Albuquerque), Bugs ends up in the castle of Yosemite Sam, here a harem-leading honcho. Sam's pain-in-the-spurs son, Prince Abalaba, needs somebody to read him stories; Bugs, who'd sooner take the job than suffer the alternative, that involving being boiled in oil, signs on. Each rabbit-read narrative replaces a sedate story with a Loony Tunes favorite: In "Jack and the Beanstalk," a canary-keeping giant bellows "Fee, fi, fo, fat, I tawt I taw a puddy tat"; the witch in "Hansel and Gretel" develops a hankering for rabbit stew; "Goldilocks" goes feline as Sylvester swaps his porridge for suffering succotash on behalf of his bratty son. In the end, the varmint finds a way to vamoose, but, being a generous sort of bunny, he doesn't keep the address from his commission-hungry coworker. From there, the feathers fly, as does the rest of this feature, which is undiluted fun for fans of these cartoons from way back as well as those just getting to know the loopy Looney Tunes gang.

On the other hand...Disc 2 is strung together with a very aggravating & annoying modern story, featuring Yosemite Sam & his loud-mouth, bratty nerd of a son. It's not amusing unless you're the type who's expecting anything to happen. In fact, this whole disc is spoiled because of the above mentioned character (Yosemite Sam's son). It's difficult to appreciate a cartoon when you have an ugly character with a really loud mouth & bad attitude. That's why I only rated the DVD 4 stars. Actually...I'd rate it about 3.8 stars...if possible. The hi-lights on Disc 2 are "Ducking out of the cold", "Hassan Chop", and "Singing Frog", which won an award at the cartoon festival, here in Montreal in the 90's.
If you are into a bunch of laughs and don't mind Yosemite Sam's annoying loudmouth son, this 2DVD set is for you...because it is truly a funny item...and at 171 minutes in length...it's definitely worth adding to your collection. Picture, Color & Sound Quality is remarkable and clear, making it a treat to watch over and over.Read more ›
The Looney Tunes Movie Collection, is a 2 Disc DVD collection, that contains 2 Warner Brothers cartoon movies from the past, that have been placed on DVD for the very first time. The collection is considered as a smarter motion to display and a great ordeal of improvement, especially with the lackluster Premire and Spotlight Collections. The first disc showcases the Bugs Bunny & Road Runner movie by the late legendary Chuck Jones, which includes so many snippet of some of his most dynamic cartoons from the legendary What's Opera Doc, Duck Amuck, the Oscar-winning Pepe Le Pew toon For Scent-imental Reasons, and a unique compilation of some of the greatest chases from Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner. The movie was incredibly funny, and has been remastered beautifully in a quaint display.
The second movie in this bunch is Bugs Bunny's 2rd Movie: 1001 Rabbit Tales, a story that Friz Freleng compiled. This is about Bugs & Daffy as book salesman, going head-to-head for the chance as a pro, where both of their jobs land them in hot water.Read more ›
Note the title of this set: "Looney Tunes Movie Collection." Sounds pretty comprehensive! Odd, then, that the second movie is omitted. What you get here are the first (1979) and third (1982) Bugs Bunny movies. What you WANT is the second (1981) movie, which has "Knighty Knight Bugs" on it. (Y'know the one: Yosemite Sam rides the dragon and gets flattened by the drawbridge. You can't get that cartoon on DVD.) Yes, what we want is "The Looney Looney Looney Bugs Bunny Movie." No such luck.
