Halloween is usually all for really scary stuff.
But when you’re Bugs Bunny or Daffy Duck, there has to be some hilarity in there too which is precisely what we look to be getting in a new half-hour special on HBO Max, Bugs Bunny’s Howl-O-Skreem Spooktacular.
The special will feature Daffy Duck and Porky Pig in a graveyard with some very much unwanted companions, a previously released Bugs Bunny short where he meets a Mummy (Gizmodo notes it “skews more horror than a run-of-the mill-Looney Tunes short”), a new Witch Hazel short which is the first time she’s made it into the Looney Tunes Cartoon revival and Sylvester, poor easily scared Sylvester, finding not much comfort at a motel which might have a monstrous resident.
It’s not the entire gang but that’s okay because Bugs Bunny’s Howl-O-Skreem Spooktacular looks it’ll feature some of the best who find out that Halloween is no laughing matter … or is it?
Bugs Bunny’s Howl-O-Skreem Spooktacular streams on HBO Max on 29 September.
How comedically creepy will it be? Check out this skeletal clip from the special to see just how badly and scarily things might go hilariously wrong …
