The Great American Chase (1979)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Movie is basically a collection of Warner Bros. short cartoon features, "starring" the likes of Daffy Duck, Porky Pig and Wile.E.Coyote. These animations are interspersed by Bugs Bunny reminiscing on past events and providing links between the individual animations which are otherwise unconnected. The Road Runner feature at the end consists of sketches from various RR separates (well it does in the 78-minute version anyway).
It's classic encounters of the funniest kind!

- It's classic encounters of the funniest kind!
- Wile E. Coyote: Allow me to introduce myself. My name is "Wile E. Coyote"... Genius. I am not selling anything nor am I working my way through college, so let's get down to cases. You are a rabbit, and I am going to eat you for supper. Now, don't try to get away. I am more muscular, more cunning, faster, and larger than you are... and I'm a genius, while you could hardly pass the entrance examinations to kindergarten. So, I'll give you the customary two minutes to say your prayers. Bugs Bunny: I'm sorry, mac, but the lady of the house ain't home and besides we mailed you people a check last week! [Slam] Wile E. Coyote: Why do they always want to do it the hard way?
[Last line of the movie, after the the WB logo closes in] Bugs Bunny: Eat your heart out, Burt Reynolds.
Daffy Duck: All Right! Let's get this started! [a black screen with a "THE END" sign appears]
Daffy Duck: [demanding the unseen animator to show himself] All Right! I've had enough of this. This is the final, final Straw-WHO'S RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS! I DEMAND THAT YOU SHOW YOURSELF... [the animator draws a door in front of Daffy and shuts it, then he reveals himself as BUGS BUNNY!] Bugs Bunny: Heh!Heh! Ain't I a stinker?
Bugs Bunny: [Giovanni Jones has nailed him with his banjo for interupting his singing practice] Music-Hater.
- The scene in which Bugs discusses his "several fathers" was written by Chuck Jones as a way to debunk fellow animation director Robert Clampett's claims throughout the 1970s that he alone created Bugs. Clampett's name is notably missing from Bugs's list.
Bugs's house, which is cantilevered over a carrot-juice waterfall, is modeled on Frank Lloyd Wright's "Fallingwater" house in Bear Run, Pennsylvania.
