Cartoon Production Information:


Includes: and bits from other cartoons.

Marvin the Martian's name apparently debuted here in a wraparound scene. It appeared (as simply "Marvin Martian") under a picture of him in a portrait gallery at Bugs's place.

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.

Commentary:


Most of the Warner Bros. compilation cartoon features are iffy at best, taking six-minute shorts and trying to pad them to a feature-length storyline. The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Movie, the first of these efforts, at least presents most of its cartoons in complete form. It also helps that it features the work of Charles M. "Chuck" Jones, perhaps the greatest of the Warner Bros. cartoon directors.

For anyone unlucky enough to be unfamiliar with his work, Chuck Jones created the characters Road Runner, Wile E. Coyote, and the amorous skunk Pepé Le Pew . He also took the characters of Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck to their zeniths in cartoons such as "What's Opera, Doc?" (1957, with Bugs and Elmer's chase taking place in a Wagnerian opera) and "Duck Amuck" (1953, with Daffy being tortured by an unseen animator). Both cartoons, and many other delightful gems, are featured here, and it's enough to make you a Jones convert on the spot.

The fast-forward button will be most handy at the movie's beginning, when Bugs gives us an unctuous lecture on the history of movie chases. The music of Dean Elliot, a Jones veteran, is most non-descript and particularly painful in this feature; after the glorious heights of Carl Stalling's music in the classic shorts, Elliott's work pales even more in comparison. But when the original cartoons begin, you know you're in the hands of a comedy master.

If you've ever wanted some of Warner Bros.' best cartoon work on a single tape, this is as good as it gets.
