What’s Streaming?: The Bugs Bunny/RoadRunner Movie

In a debt of gratitude to an old editor and friend at an old outlet, it’s time to keep a tradition going.  In What’s Streaming? we will take a look at a variety of different offerings that the streaming services like Netflix, Shomi and others have to offer for our viewing entertainment.

First up and recently added to Netflix Canada is The Bugs Bunny and Road Runner Movie which is less of a movie and more of an excuse to recycle some classic clips but it doesn’t make it any less fun.

Basically a collection of Warner Bros. short cartoon features, “starring” the likes of Daffy Duck, Porky Pig and Wile.E.Coyote, as Bugs Bunny sits in his palatial mansion reminiscing on past events and providing links between the individual stories link by a loose theme of “The Great American Chase”.

While it isn’t exactly about anything specific, it basically kicks off a nice introduction to the world of Looney Tunes as Bugs talks about his different fathers who gave him a voice in comedy, like Chuck Jones, Mel Blanc and many others.

Bridged by Bugs introducing different segments, this movie is basically an excuse to get the Looney Tunes franchise into a sort of greatest hits type of package.  With the likes of Hare-Way To The Stars, Duck Dodgers in the 24th and 1/2 Century, Ali Baba Bunny, For Scent-imental Reasons, What’s Opera, Doc? along with many many others including a Wil-e Coyote and Road Runner medley showing their greatest hits.

Ultimately, it’s not something that I would deem as a necessary piece of animation history, it is always nice to kick back with some Looney Tunes and The Bugs Bunny and Road Runner Movie fills that need and then some.

The Bugs Bunny and Road Runner Movie is now streaming on Netflix Canada.
