Why It Rocks[]

  1. It brought Bugs Bunny and the all-star Warner Bros. stars returned to the silver screen.
  2. Orson Welles said that very tiny animation department at the Warner Bros. studio lot, Termite Terrace, was one of the world's most legendary places in history. He also said that Bugs Bunny was one of the biggest names in comedy.
  3. It was the very FIRST Looney Tunes feature film.
  4. Half-documentary, half-compilation film, all-movie.
  5. While the film featured six Bugs Bunny cartoons, it showed three other Warner Bros. cartoons: one featured Daffy Duck and Porky Pig, one feature Sylvester and Tweety, and one marked the debut of the loud-mouthed rooster, Foghorn Leghorn, who stole the show and became one of the world's biggest cartoon stars.
  6. The song, "Termite Terrace Ra-Ra-Ra!" was very catchy.
