Looney Tunes: Back in Action

Synopsis: Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck are up to their feuding ways again. Tired of playing second fiddle to Bugs, Daffy has decided to leave the Studio for good. He is aided by Warner Bros.' humor impaired Vice President of Comedy, Kate Houghton, who releases him from his contract and instructs WB security guard/aspiring stunt man DJ Drake to capture and "escort" Daffy off the studio lot. Suddenly a sidekick without a hero, the duck decides to ally himself with DJ, whether he likes it or not. Consequently, Daffy is on the scene when DJ discovers that his famous movie star father was Damian Drake, known for playing suave international spies onscreen, is actually a suave international spy in real life--and has been kidnapped by the evil insane nerdy, prancing villain known as Mr. Chairman of the equally nefarious Acme Corporation. It seems that Damian knows the whereabouts of the mysterious magical and powerful Blue Monkey Diamond, and the Chairman will do anything to get his hands on it! With Daffy

Be very quiet. I'm hunting rabbits.

I am a duck bent on self-preservationum.

Say your prayers, rabbit.

It's rabbit season.

- Duck season.

- Rabbit season!

Duck season! Fire!

Hold everything.

"Daffy gets blasted."

Page 8:
"Daffy gets blasted again!"

What's the matter with you people?

We can't do this kind of stuff anymore.

Brothers Warner...

show biz legends like me

shouldn't have to play stooge...

to that long-eared,

carrot-chomping, overbite-challenged--

What's up, doc?

Bobby, how's the wife?

Great nose job, Chuck. Thanks, girls.

Good rug, Mel. Never would have guessed.

- Pardon me.

- The pleasure is mine.

Fellas, I think Daff's right.

Maybe I'll take a vacation.

Go visit my 542 nieces and nephews.

Mr. Duck, excuse me, I'm sorry.

I don't see how we can have

a Bugs Bunny movie without Bugs Bunny.

Oh, my heavens, no.

You couldn't have a movie

without Bugs Bunny.

If you don't mind me asking, whose

glorified personal assistant are you?

Kate Houghton, Vice President, Comedy.

Right.

Kate did Lethal Weapon Babies.

Finally, a Lethal Weapon

that I can take my grandchildren to.

Gentlemen, check your phones.

Our latest research shows

that Bugs Bunny is a core asset...

that appeals to male and female,

young and old throughout the universe...

while your fan base

is limited to angry fat guys in basements.

Yeah, but... Come on, fellas,

I'm thrice the entertainer the rabbit is!

Fine, it's hilarious...

but moviegoers these days

demand action heroes, like me!

Top that, rabbit.

So, it has come to this, has it?

I'm afraid

the Brothers Warner must choose...

between a handsome matinee idol...

or this miscreant perpetrator

of low burlesque.

Whichever one's not the duck.

That's the stuff from my office.

- You don't have an office.

- Not anymore.

Symbolically, this is bad.

Please, brother. Other brother?

Icy she-wolf? Help me, please.

I'm too moist and tender to retire.

- Let me escort you out.

- Wait!

I haven't tried toadying, kowtowing,

or butt-kissing yet.

I'm still begging here!

Freeze!

Can I try that again?

No, thank you. We'll call you.

Hey, D.J. How did your tryout go?

Well, let's see.

I can say I made an impression.

Your father can get you a job

anytime he wants to.

I know, but I don't want that.

I'd really rather earn it, sir.

- Mr. Warner mentioned you this morning.

- He did? What did he say?

He said don't forget the TurtleWax.

What about animation?

I could do cartoons.

Dead duck walking.

- Morning, Mr. Bunny.

- Very hot now.

And I do voices. Listen.

- Excuse me.

- "Fetch the stick, boy."

"What a maroon."

"You can't handle the truth."

Some grip, lady.

I need you to eject this duck.

- Lady, this is Daffy Duck.

- Exactly.

- Not anymore. We own the name.

- Yeah?

You can't stop me from calling myself...

- What do you know?

- You fired Daffy Duck?

No, I didn't. I did. They did.

You just were following orders.

You know what? You don't know me.

You're Kate Houghton,

you're the VP of Comedy. Go figure.

You drive a red 1988 Alfa Romeo.

Good engine. Little under-driven.

I know this

because you nearly ran me over last week.

Anyway, about that duck,

you want me to get rid of him still?

- Duck, yes. Eject the duck, please.

- I can't do that.

- Why not?

- He's gone.

What are you waiting for, backup?

Shabby job so far, constable.

Quick! After me!

Now you're gonna pay for that one.

Come here!

- Dress Inspector!

- Look out!

One side, Spartacuses.

- Come on.

- Daffy, stop!

Cut him off at the pass, boys.

All units in pursuit of little black duck.
