Looney Tunes gang does its own version of Wrath o’ Khan, with Bugs Bunny in the
captain’s seat when Fudd comes looking for revenge for his single episode in
season one. It’s a fun ride, akin to the Star
Trek parodies seen in Mad Magazine.
Sylvester looks appropriately nervous as red shirt, and there are other subtle
in-jokes to appeal to the casual Trekkie.
next is a Marvin the Martian solo outing, in which he attempts to train his
killer plant to attack those bothersome Earthlings. But the plant is far too
affectionate to make an effective weapon.
third feature is a VH1-style look at the careers of Sylvester and Tweetie,
chronicling their rise from struggling performers to striking comedy gold
together. But as with all “Behind the Music” episodes, it all comes crashing
down. It’s somewhat of a modern take on the “What’s Up, Doc?” cartoon, in which
Bugs Bunny recounts his own rise to stardom.
issue features cameos by virtually all the Looney Tunes characters, with a few
notable exceptions. I wouldn’t mind seeing them continue the Star Trek rip-offs
satires, with the Tasmanian Devil as a Klingon, and Gossamer the Monster as a
tribble. That would be innnnteresting.
