Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck in three new 3D Looney Tunes shorts
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The last time Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck graced the big screen, Brendan Fraser and Jenna Elfman pratfalled alongside the Looney Tunes legends for a 2003 comedy that didn’t really do the beloved characters justice.
Warner Bros. hopes to make amends.
Taking a page from Pixar’s playbook of producing masterful short films, WB revealed plans to create three 3-D animated shorts and play them before anticipated WB movies. EW.com has descriptions of the three films, which we are including below:
Daffy’s Rhapsody: In the first of the new shorts, a persistent Elmer Fudd chases Daffy Duck (Blanc) on stage during a musical performance. The short features Blanc performing the song “Daffy Duck’s Rhapsody.”
I Tawt I Taw a Puddy Tat: A classic game of cat and bird transpires in Granny’s apartment as Tweety Bird goes to great lengths to avoid the clutches of his arch-nemesis Sylvester the Cat. The short also features the hit song of the same name, which was performed by Blanc, and sold over three million copies worldwide.
Untitled Coyote & Road Runner: Wile E. Coyote’s epic quest to capture the Road Runner continues in this all-new short. Will the Coyote finally get his paws on his elusive prize?
WB says that “Daffy’s Rhapsody” will play before the family sequel “Happy Feet 2,” which will be in theaters on Nov. 18.
