Bugs Bunny Road Runner Movie [VHS]
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 almost 50 years ago. As with any collection, the viewer wonders why some films were included and others omitted: Why Hare-way to the Stars and Operation: Rabbit, but not Rabbit of Seville or A Bear for Punishment? Nor is the material always shown to its best advantage: Long Haired Hare has, unfortunately, been cut, and combining footage from several Road Runner shorts into a 20-minute montage weakens the pacing Jones built into the individual films. 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. (Ages 4 and older) --Charles Solomon
