Thanksgiving is one of the busiest travel times of the year as families get together near and far. This year, even Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck are taking a road trip across the country for Looney Tunes Presents: Bugs & Daffy’s Thanksgiving Road Trip.
Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, this four-part comedy podcast series is available for listening now. When Bugs and Daffy are invited to the Warner Bros. lot for a big Thanksgiving feast, the ever-prideful Daffy declines, refusing to celebrate a holiday whose entire purpose is the idolization of a turkey. With a little convincing, Daffy decides to attend, but is determined to make ducks the official bird of Thanksgiving instead, hatching a plan to star in a big-budget holiday movie. The only problem is, Daffy isn’t famous enough to star in his own movie, so Bugs and Daffy must take a road trip to make a splash at football games, food events, and fashion shows across the country to make Daffy the official Thanksgiving duck.
In episode one, “Touchdown Duck,” Bugs and Daffy make their first stop at the Thanksgiving Bird Bowl, where Daffy attempts to become a football star, but he’ll have to take down the mighty Hometown Crushers first.
In episode two, “A Kooky Cook-Off,” Bugs and Daffy stop at the annual Turkey Fair, where Daffy enters a chili cook-off to raise his profile as a famous chef. Meanwhile, reigning chili cook-off champions, Maw and Paw, have their sights set on Bugs in order to complete their rabbit chili.
In episode three, “Runway Rabbit,” Bugs and Daffy land internships with famous magazine editor, Anya Sheep, as Daffy tries his best to get on the cover of a fashion magazine. Once they make it to the runway, Daffy must face off against beloved fashion model, Klaus.
In episode four, “Movie Mallard,” Daffy begins production on his Thanksgiving movie, letting the power of directing go to his head. Will his movie be enough to cement himself in everyone’s mind as the “Thanksgiving Duck?”
