fine Looney Tunes action
2 July 2015 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

This is 3 Christmas themed episodes. In the first one, Yosemite Sam is Ebenezer Scrooge and Porky Pig is Bob Cratchit. Scrooge not only fires Cratchit but he also evicts his family. Bugs Bunny decides to take matters into his own hands and scare the Christmas spirit into him. In the second one, Wile E. Coyote tricks Road Runner into a colder climate hoping to slow him down. In the third one, Tasmanian Devil escapes a transport plane over the North Pole. He takes on the guise of Santa Claus and comes to Bugs Bunny's home.

The Christmas Carol feels a little rushed. It's highly compressed but that's the nature of Looney Tunes episodes. The Road Runner is interesting because they get a different setting. The hijinx continue to be the same. The third one is most notable for the little used nephew of Bugs Bunny, Clyde Rabbit. These are all fine Looney episodes but limited as a Christmas special.
