This old TV special is made up from 10 cartoons, using only about 3 minutes of that cartoon. It would have gotten 5 stars if the cartoons were complete.
For some unexplained reason the Easter Bunny calls Granny to tell her that he is sick & unable to distribute Easter Eggs. Granny thinks Bugs Bunny would be a good substitute, so she goes down to the Warner Brothers Studio where Bugs is filming 3 minute segments to complete his cartoons. Here she must sit through the various filmings & screenings of Looney Tunes Cartoon segments to try to talk to Bugs.
The new animation is pretty poor & Mel's vocal work is weak (well he is older). It is hard to realize that this poor material was produced & directed by veteran Looney Toonists FRIZ FRELENG & BOB McKIMSON.
Oh, and since this was for the kiddies, all gunshots by Elmer Fudd have been edited out of the TV Special. (NOT by Warner for the DVD.)
Cartoon clips used from:
1) Knighty Knight Bugs
2) Hillbilly Hare
3) Bully for Bugs
4) Tweety's Circus (Tweety & Sylvester)
5) Birds Anonymous (Tweety & Sylvester)
6) For Scent-Imental Reasons (Pepe Le Pew)
7) Rabbit Of Seville
8) Foghorn Leghorn cartoon
9) Robin Hood Daffy (Daffy & Porky) *almost complete, only the ending has been removed to segway back to the new animation.*
10) Sahara Hare
BONUS COMPLETE CARTOON:
HIS HARE RAISING TALE - basically a clip-show cartoon in which Bugs tells his nephew about his various adventures in 8 minutes, this means very short clips.
So unless you want to collect everything Looney Tunes, wait for this April's real Bugs Bunny & Daffy Duck cartoon collections to come out with complete cartoons.
Bugs Bunny: Hare Extraordinaire (Looney Tunes Super Stars)
Daffy Duck: Frustrated Fowl (Looney Tunes Super Stars)
On a positive note: June Foray gets screen credit for voicing Granny, something she was usually overlooked for in the voice credits (but we knew it was her).
