#76 -- Carrotblanca

Title - Carrotblanca
Director - Douglas McCarthy
Released - 1995

Reason for Placement --

Termite Terrace never shied away from putting references to famous movies and stars in their cartoons, but it was rare to do a full-blown parody of a film.  That all changed in 1995, when Warner Bros. released their homage to one of the greatest films of all time: Carrotblanca.

Bugs and Penelope Pussycat (in her only speaking role, voiced by Tress MacNeille) fill out the main characters as parodies of Rick and Ilsa, with Sylvester, Yosemite Sam, and Daffy taking care of the supporting cast (playing Laszlo, Major Strausser, and Sam, respectively).  A number of other Looney Tunes characters fill out the background, giving a real treat for die-hard fans.

While a great homage to such an amazing film (and my personal #1 pick for greatest movie ever), the best part of the toon is easily Tweety, who does a disturbingly perfect portrayal of Peter Lorre's role, Ugarte.  Wow, never thought of Tweety as such a creepy character before.
