Bugs Bunny’s Looney Christmas Tales (1979)


It may just be the 80’s kid in me but watching “ Bugs Bunny Looney Christmas Tales” really takes me back to being a kid at Christmas. This holiday special was a staple on CBS during the month of December but sadly faded away during the mid 90’s and really has not been televised by any major networks.


Bugs Bunny Looney Christmas Tales has three Christmas cartoon and starts with a retelling of “ A Christmas Carol” with Yosemite Sam as Scrooge, Porky Pig as Bob Cratchit and Bugs Bunny representing all the ghosts.  This is a humorous telling of the classic Christmas tale with enough laughs to make it enjoyable for kids.


The second cartoon is a classic Road Runner & Coyote cartoon called “Freeze Frame”. This one is pretty much a standard Road Runner and Coyote skit but with a winter feel to it.  Wile E Coyote purchases a snow maker since Road Runners do not like the snow. It’s a good old fashion race in the snow.

The third and final cartoon is ” The Fright before Christmas” where Bugs Bunny is telling his nephew Clyde the story of ” The Night before Christmas” when the Tasmanian Devil makes a appearance but Bugs makes his nephew think Santa arrived and sends him off to bed but Bugs does all his classic Looney tune stunts to distract and frustrate the Tasmanian Devil in a humorous version of ” The Night before Christmas”

Bugs Bunny’s Looney Christmas has not yet made it to DVD status but for those of us that remember the VHS era, it is available on websites like and other video sites.  If you want a charming, fun holiday cartoon for the kids to enjoy and want to feel that special feeling of being a kid ready to watch a wonderful animated holiday special. I would encourage giving this holiday classic a try, you will be adding it to your yearly shows!!
