A Looney Tunes Holiday Classic

I just picked up a copy of Bah, Humduck! A Looney Tunes Christmas today. I must admit it was very well done.
The story is well written, full of slapstick, and dare I say "heartfelt". The voice actors did a great job. The animation is a tad unspirational, but it is fluid and character driven.

Daffy Duck is the greedy, Scrooge-like owner of the Lucky Duck Megamart and expects his employees to work on Christmas Day. Expect too see a slew of your favorite Looney Tunes characters.

Porky is the assistant manager and only wishes to spend time with his daughter Priscilla. Daffy learns the true meaning of the holidays thanks to Bugs Bunny and the 3 ghosts of Christmas.

Starring the voices of Joe Alaskey, Bob Bergen, Billy West, June Foray, Maurice LaMarche, Jim Cummings and Tara Strong.
Casting & Voice Direction by Andrea Romano.
Music by Gordon Goodwin's Big Phat Band. A 16 piece jazz band.
Written by Ray DeLaurentis.
Directed by Charles Visser.
