The Looney, Looney, Looney Bugs Bunny Movie (1981)

[Friz Freleng film; Mel Blanc, Stan Freberg]

This is the second feature-length film containing classic Warner Brothers cartoons linked together by newly animated footage. It is divided into three parts. Part 1 involves Yosemite Sam's pact with the Devil to exchange his place in Hell with Bugs Bunny, provided that Sam can lure Bugs into sin and then kill him. Part 2 is a parody of TV crime-fighting dramas, as Bugs is selected by law enforcement to find and apprehend gangster Rocky, who has kidnapped Tweety Bird for a ransom. Part 3 is an Academy Awards-like contest in which various classic cartoon shorts are showcased.

Near the end of the film, Bugs Bunny showers five balls, finishing by catching them all in his hat.
