Space Jam (1996) After winning the third championship with the Chicago Bulls, Michael Jordan announces his retirement from basketball and declares his intention to play baseball. Meanwhile, deep in space, on another planet called Moron Mountain an outer space theme park, Mr. Swackhammer sends five tiny aliens known as the Nerdlucks to go to Looney Tune Land and capture all the Looney Tune characters and take them to Moron Mountain. But the Looney Tunes thinks of a plan to find a way to escape slavery on Moron Mountain. And Bugs Bunny decided to defend themselves by challenging the Nerdlucks to a basketball game. Then the Nerdlucks uses their strange powers to steal the talent of five NBA stars such as Charles Barkley, Patrick Ewing, Muggsy Bogues, Larry Johnson, and Shawn Bradley which they'll ultimately transform themselves into the tallest and muscular Monstars. It's up to Michael Jordan to help the Looney Tunes play a basketball game vs. the Monstars. But if the Monstars win, then Swackhammer gets the Looney Tunes, and along with Jordan to Moron Mountain!

Movie Quote(s):
  • Charles Barkley: It was this girl, five-feet-nuthin'. Blocked my shot! Psychiatrist: When did you first start having this dream? Charles Barkley: It wasn't a dream, it really happened!
  • Shawn Bradley: I've got other skills. I could go back and work on the farm. Or maybe... I could go back to the jungle and be a missionary again.
  • Tweety Bird: I tought I taw - I did! I did! I did tee Michael Jordan!
  • Daffy Duck: We've got to get a new agent. We're getting screwed!
  • Daffy Duck: Too bad you can't practice getting taller, boys.
Movie Trivia:
  • The scuffed basketball used in the film is a treasured souvenir owned by director Joe Pytka. When held by Michael Jordan it is real, but whenever it is in flight or controlled by the cartoon characters it is animated.
  • When flying towards "Moron Mountain", the monolith from 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) can be seen at the very right edge of the frame floating in space.
  • In order to fill up the audience from a limited selection of characters, one section was made from actual Looney Tunes. The rest were simply replicated over and over and then "seated" next to each other to create the illusion of a full audience.
  • The gym where the Looney Tunes practice is called "Leon Schlesinger Gym" after Leon Schlesinger, the man who produced the first Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies.
  • Noel Blanc (Mel Blanc's son) was originally booked to provide all of the regular Warner Brothers male cartoon characters' voices. But he and Warner Brothers couldn't agree on a contract, so the studio replaced Blanc with four other people to do the 12 male voices, instead of Blanc doing them all.
