Refreshing Repetition
Yes, the gags are somewhat repetitive: Wile E. Coyote plunges to the ground 15 times, is crushed with rocks 11 times and baits the roadrunner three times with "Free Bird Seed." In all, 10 Acme products appear in this movie, in which Bugs Bunny and other characters sport clever disguises no fewer than 12 times. There are five "wabbit season"/"duck season" face-offs. Daffy Duck gets shot 10 times.

But it never gets old. I have loved this movie since I was a little boy, and have viewed it, literally, hundreds of times. That's the genius of Chuck Jones (animator) and Mel Blanc (voices).

The many shorts featured in this compilation include Daffy's battle with an off-screen animator, Bugs fighting a bull and getting revenge on a grumpy opera singer, two intergalactic run-ins with Marvin the Martian, "What's Opera, Doc?" (which is, as Bugs describes it, "the entire 18 hours of Richard Wagner's 'Ring of Nibaloone--Nibalane--Nibalu--Nibalung' ... squashed ... down to seven minutes") and a 20-minute segment of classic roadrunner gags.
