The Easter Bunny is sick and asks Granny to help him find a substitute so Easter is not ruined.
Bugs Bunny’s Easter Funnies is a collection of classic Looney Toons cartoons framed in a new (for 1977) story. The Easter Bunny calls Granny and tells her he is sick and cannot make his Easter deliveries that year. Granny suggests Bugs Bunny replace him and heads to the studio to ask him. Unfortunately, Bugs Bunny is a busy movie star. He is filming too many short films to take off to help. All the other classic Warner Bros characters use short films from their filmography to prove to Granny that they are the perfect Bunny for the job.
The meat of the DVD is the vintage shorts, most of which I had seen as a child. We get Foghorn Leghorn, Yosemite Sam, Elmer Fudd, Sylvester and Tweety Bird, Pepé Le Pew and Daffy Duck cartoons. The Daffy Duck cartoon is a classic “Robin Hood” sketch while the Foghorn Leghorn cartoon focuses on Egghead Jr. always making him a fool. The vintage cartoons are great and this is a nice little addition to your child’s video library, if for no other reason than to let him see what cartoons looked like when you were a kid.
I will always take a Looney Toons cartoon over most of what is passed off as kid’s cartoons today.
There are some interactive games. I could not figure out how to operate them. There is also an extra cartoon, His Hare-Raising Tale (1951). This is a great short cartoon where Bugs Bunny is filling his nephews head full of tall tales about his “hare-raising” past. Also includes is a Peanuts trailer.
