Competitiveness and teamwork in almost equal measure.

Positive Role Models & Representations

Although they are often hunting or competing with one another, the Loony Toons gang is collectively trying to help Granny find a replacement Easter Bunny.

Violence & Scariness

Characters are hit with shovels, mallets, drawbridges, you name it -- all in the name of slapstick. Shotguns shown but not shot, explosives explode. Nobody is killed.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that there is a lot of slapstick bopping-on-the-head in this bunny movie -- with shovels, mallets, drawbridges, you name it. Guns are fired and there are some explosions, but no one is hurt.

What's the story?

Granny gets a call from the Easter Bunny who is sick in bed and unable to deliver his Easter eggs. She decides to call upon the only other bunny she knows -- an Oscar-winning rabbit named Bugs (voice by Mel Blanc). But Bugs is busy at the studio working on his comedy skits. Granny stops to watch a few (classics like "Knighty Knight Bugs," and "Hillbilly Hare") and runs into some other characters like Daffy Duck and Sylvester the Cat, who are interested in showing her how their acting chops might net them the Easter Bunny role. Just when Bugs is allowed to leave the set and take over the Easter Bunny's duties, along hops a bunny who sounds a little daffy, and who might have a secret up his sleeve.

Is it any good?

Of course it's good! Three of the cartoons woven into the movie won Academy Awards back in the day. But there is really nothing new in this collection. The premise of looking for a substitute for the Easter Bunny is not too terribly original. But for those parents who want an excuse to see the fantastic Loony Tunes cartoons with their kids on Easter, here's a good opportunity to dive in.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about slapstick violence. When is it just plain funny? When is it too much

  • What is a trickster? How can tricksters like Bugs Bunny teach us to think outside of the box? Can you think of other trickster characters?
