The Bugs Bunny/Road-Runner Movie
The Bugs Bunny/Road-Runner Movie (originally entitled "The Great American Chase") is a 1979 Looney Tunes film with a compilation of classic Warner Bros. cartoon shorts and animted wraparound, hosted by Bugs Bunny. These cartoons, which also feature Elmer J. Fudd, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Pepe Le Pew, Penelope Pussycat, and Marvin The Martian, include (in order):

- There They Go-Go-Go

- Stop, Look and Hasten
- Beep Prepared
- Fast and Furry-ous.
The cartoons and bridging scenes were directed by Chuck Jones and written by Michael Maltese, and animated by Maurice Noble and Ben Washam, both of whom also supplied the backgrounds. A running gag is established at the film's beginning; Chuck Jones had put the "That's all folks!" card in the wrong place, which Bugs corrects as "That's NOT all Folks!". This happens again at the end; That's all Folks! was being written again, but Bugs stops it and makes it rewrite as "That's not quite all Folks" before the credits roll. Right at the end, just before the Warner Communications Company logo, the same catchphrase appears but written as "That's really all Folks!". On top of the logo is Bugs, and he says, "Eat your heart out, Burt Reynolds!"
- On the original early 80's VHS of the film at the start of the end credits, the original working title of the film "The Great American Chase" is presented unlike its 1997 VHS re-release which uses instead the movie's final title.
The film got a perfect rating on Rotten Tomatoes, receiving 100% fresh.
