The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Movie was originally titled The Great American Chase, but its name took its last form as such. The film is a 1979 Looney Tunes production. It is a compilation of classic Warner Bros. cartoon shorts and animated middle sequences that bridges the short stories. The bridging sequences show Bugs Bunny at his home. The film’s first half features Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd, Porky Pig, Marvin the Martian, and Pepé Le Pew.
Chuck Jones directed the short cartoons and bridging scenes. Michael Maltese wrote the film’s script. The backgrounds and animation were contributed by Maurice Noble and Ben Washam.
The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Movie was dedicated to Dorothy Jones, the wife of Chuck Jones, who died not long before the film was released.
