There's one more bit of Looney Tunes
business to announce. This isn't a TV release, but we figured we'd sneak it in here anyways, since it's all related and releasing at the same time. November 14
will also see the DVD for "Bah, Humduck! A Looney Tunes Christmas
," a new take on an old classic:
In a hilarious take on the holiday classic, "A Christmas Carol," "A Looney Tunes Christmas" follows the exploits of Daffy Duck, the "Scrooge-like" proprietor of the "Lucky Duck" mega-mart. To take financial advantage of last minute shoppers, Daffy demands that his employees, including his long suffering manager, Porky Pig, work on Christmas Day instead of spending the holiday with their families. Its up to Bugs Bunny and the ghosts of Christmas past (Tweety and Granny), present (Yosemite Sam) and future (Taz) to make sure that Daffy realizes the error of his ways and saves Christmas for the Looney Tunes gang.
That single-disc release sells for $19.98.
We'll have more information as soon as we can get our hands on it. In the meantime, here are some very tiny peaks at the cover art for these:
