Box Office Bunny, released in 1990, is a 4-minute Looney Tunes short starring Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and Elmer Fudd. It was shown in theaters with The NeverEnding Story II: The Next Chapter. This was Warner Brother's first Bugs Bunny theatrical release since 1964. It was issued to commemorate Bugs' 50th anniversary. Jeff Bergman voiced the rabbit, thus becoming the first person besides Mel Blanc, who had died the year before this cartoon was released, to have the honor of having the job. The action takes place in a massive movie theater built over Bugs' rabbit hole. Bugs decides to see what's inside. There he meets usher Elmer Fudd, and Daffy Duck as a freeloading movie goer, employing a library card to sneak in the back door. To many, the highlight is a techno parody with bubble gum and the parody of Friday the 13th (whose international distribution was handled by Warners). The ABC version of this cartoon cuts the "That's All Folks" ending where Daffy and Elmer run screaming through the title card (in connection to the end gag where the two are trapped in a slasher flick with a chainsaw-wielding maniac after them) and Bugs pops in to deliver the closing line.
