The Easter Bunny gets sick and cannot perform his Easter Sunday duties. Granny offers to find a replacement and turns to Bugs Bunny for the job. Unfortunately, Bugs is under a film contract and cannot help. Granny then agrees to interview several Looney Tunes characters for the position.
The film jumps back and forth between watching Bugs Bunny film, and Granny interviewing replacements for the Easter Bunny.
I was never that fond of Bugs Bunny or his Looney Tune side-kicks, but my husband has always had a soft spot for them. He can remember waking up early on a Saturday morning, grabbing a bowl of cereal, and laughing at every scene. So when I was offered the chance to review Bug Bunny’s Easter Funnies, I thought I’d give the Looney Tunes another shot.
As I sat, annoyed by the poor film quality—I really hate it when an old classic is re-released without being digitally re-mastered—and the obvious tears in the original film strip, my husband looked past them and laughed and laughed some more.
According to my husband, and several Looney Tune critics, this film is a compilation of several classics that have been weaved together to create a new storyline. When you think about it, it’s a unique way to bring life to old classics. My problem, however, is that the weaving seems to be all jumbled together—there’s no real storyline and therefore, in my opinion, no real Easter Special.
As for the bonus features, there isn’t much: an interactive game, and an eight minute cartoon short called, “His Hare Raising Tale”.
Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this DVD to review.
