The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Movie (originally titled The Great American Chase) is a 1979 Looney Tunes film with a compilation of classic Warner Bros. cartoon shorts and animated bridging sequences, hosted by Bugs Bunny. These cartoons, which also feature Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd, Porky Pig, Marvin the Martian, and Pepe le Pew, include (in order):
- Hare-Way to the Stars
- Duck Dodgers in the 24½th Century
- Robin Hood Daffy
- Duck Amuck
- Bully For Bugs
- Ali Baba Bunny
- Rabbit Fire
- For Scent-imental Reasons
- Long-Haired Hare
- What's Opera, Doc?
- Operation: Rabbit
The cartoons are followed by a 15-minute compilation featuring the Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote, culled from 10 cartoons.
The cartoons and bridging scenes were directed by Charles M. Jones, written by Michael Maltese, and backgrounds and animation contributed by Maurice Noble and Ben Washam.
A running gag is established at the film's beginning; Chuck Jones had put the "That's all, Folks!" card in the wrong place, which Bugs corrects as "That's NOT all, Folks!". This happens again at the end; "That's all, Folks!" was being written again, but Bugs stops it and makes it rewrite as "That's not quite all, Folks!", with "not quite" in red and underlined, before the credits roll. Right at the end, just before the Warner Communications Company logo, the same catchphrase appears but written as "That's really all, Folks!". On top of the logo is Bugs, and he says, "Eat your heart out, Burt Reynolds!"
