  • A decent series premiere

    7.5
    When Bugs and Daffy need some money, they decide to go on a gameshow called Besties, where all the questions are about your best friend. When they get on the show, they are facing The Goofy Gophers who seem to know everything about eachother, and Daffy knows nothing about Bugs, which causes them to lose the game, when the question was "What is Bugs Bunny's catchphrase?". Bugs realizes that Daffy isn't his bestfriend anymore, and with advice from Speedy, Daffy takes Bugs on acruise to make up for the game show incident, but gets a little too friendly.



    Merrie Melodie: Elmer Fudd sings a ballad about how much he loves grilled cheese sandwiches.



    This was an okay series premiere. It wasn't that funny, but i thought it was nice to see The old Looney Tunes charcaters again.

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Elmer: I work so very hard all day long
      I start to dream of you before I get home
      Grilled cheese
      I hope you're ready 'cause we got a date
      I just can't wait to get home and put you on my plate
      Grilled cheese
      Sandwich
      The butter will start melting when I light the flame
      'Cause the butter and the cheese are gonna play a little game
      It's called melting
      On the bread
      Don't need a burger, don't need no shake
      I'll laugh in your face if you offer me cake
      Don't waste my time with your brussel sprouts
      If you make me a steak, I'll just throw it out
      I want a grilled cheese (Grilled cheese)
      Not a BLT (Grilled cheese)
      Are you following me? (Grilled cheese)
      I love you more than any other
      I think I'm gonna make another
      Grilled
      Grilled
      Grilled
      Grilled cheese
      If you please

    • Daffy: (amazed after listening to Bugs' Superman story) You're from the Planet Krypton?!
      Bugs: (angrily) No, you maroon! That's the story of Superman!
      Daffy: (confused) Who is Superman?
      Bugs: I can't believe I hitched my wagon to you.
      Daffy: You have a wagon?
      Bugs: Daffy, concentrate! (Daffy focuses on something else) ON ME!!
      Daffy: Oh, sorry, Superman.
      Bugs: (sighs and talks to himself) This is gonna be a lo-o-o-ng night.

    • Daffy: (finds Speedy sitting on his hand-held vacuum cleaner and then shrieks in terro) AAAHH!!!
      Bugs: Hey, Speedy.
      Speedy: Hola, Bugs.
      Daffy: (to Bugs) You said you took care of the rat problem!
      Speedy: (to Daffy) Im' not a rat! I'm a mouse!
      (Speedy zooms out of Bugs' house)

    • Daffy: (to Bugs) What's up, doc? (Bugs gets a little annoyed by what Daffy said) Oh, is that just your thing? I don't want to step on any toes.

    • Bugs: You don't know anything about me! I bet if you look "self-absorbed" up in the dictionary, you'd find your picture.
      Daffy: My picture's in the dictionary? Is it a good one? What am I wearing? Does my beak look big?

    • Bugs: Your birthday is April 17th. Your favorite color is dusty rose, and you go to bed every night at 10:00 except on New Year's Eve when you go to bed at 8:30, because and I quote, "New Year's is a holiday invent by the media."

  • NOTES (4)

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • At the start of the series opening credits in each episode, the classic WB shield logo zooms forward as it does in the classic Looney Tunes cartoons, except it overshoots its mark so it appears to be crashing into the screen before settling back into its usual place. This was taken from the 1954 Looney Tunes short Lumber Jack Rabbit, which was filmed in 3-D (and the only classic Looney Tunes short produced this way) and thus featured the crashing shield logo as a gimmick for the cartoon being in 3-D.

    • Daffy believes that Bugs' last name is Bada-Blingya, which is a parody of the phrase, "Bada-Bing."

    • When Bugs exaggerated about coming from the planet Kryton, he was making a reference to DC Comics superhero, Superman.
