Bugs Bunny 80th Anniversary Collection Blu-ray #HolidayGiftGuide

 Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this blog post. The opinions I share are my own.

Bugs Bunny, one of animation’s most recognizable characters, first hopped onto the screen in 1940 and he’s been a pop-culture icon ever since. More than eight generations have enjoyed the timeless antics of the carrot-munching wise guy who always outsmarts his rivals. Cartoons, movies, TV, comics, music, sports, and more – this wascally wabbit has done it all. Clever pranks and one-liners are here, along with interviews with today’s most renowned animators, historians, and superstars. Enjoy the full range of his silly and smart-alecky personality with 60 theatrical shorts restored and remastered to the original 4X3 aspect ratio on Blu-ray™ for the first time. It’s just what the doctor – er, doc – ordered.  

Bugs Bunny is one of the most beloved, iconic cartoon characters in pop culture history. He has delighted generations of fans for 80 years. We have put together a beautiful collection with a wide-ranging assortment of cartoons that celebrate Bugs Bunny’s incredible body of work,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Senior Vice President Originals, Animation, and Family Marketing. She added, “Fans of all ages will want to own this eye-catching collection, which commemorates Bugs Bunny’s landmark anniversary with some of his most popular cartoons presented in high definition and also contains some fun extras, like a full-size glitter Funko figure, exclusively available in this giftset. This is a release no collector will want to miss.


“What’s Up, Doc?” A classic from the bunny with most, Bugs Bunny! I remember watching him and all of his shenanigans he went through in each episode when I was a little girl. The Bugs Bunny Show was a classic that has been around my entire life. A bunny who has made a name for himself and who people still talk about today. I don't know too many cartoons that have fans from so many generations but believe me, Bugs does. I remember being so entertained each episode as Bugs overcame each obstacle that stood in his way, mainly his need for getting the best carrots in his belly, but I loved watching him in every episode.

We received Looney Tunes Bugs Bunny: 80th Anniversary Collection on blu-ray which also included a nice letter from Jerry Beck, an animation historian, and it also included a beautiful sparkling Bugs Bunny from Funko Pop! for us to have as we went back in time and watched a few of our favorite episodes from the show. The blu-ray includes 60 episodes including 60 digital episodes, along with New Documentary: Bugs Bunny’s 80th What’s Up Doc-umentary and 10 Looney Tunes Cartoons episodes. 

Awesome cartoons and memorable characters deserve to be celebrated as they were such a joy to watch when we were kids. The husband and I have watched Bugs Bunny with my older two kiddos, but never our youngest, so we loved that we had the chance to introduce her to one of our childhood favs and she definitely enjoyed watching the episodes with both mom and dad. For the hubby and I, it brought back so many childhood memories, and I'm so thankful to have this anniversary collection in our home library now so that I can go back in time whenever I feel like a dose of childhood. This would be such a great gift to give someone this holiday season who loves to feel nostalgic 

Bugs Bunny 80th Anniversary Collection is now available on digital download for both US and Canada on various digital retailers including iTunes, Google Play, Vudu, and others, and will be available on Blu-ray on December 1st, 2020.
