Bah, Humduck! A Looney Tunes ChristmasNo stranger to beating a dead horse, adaptation 17 is Bah Humduck! A Looney Tunes Christmas, a second adaptation featuring Looney Tunes characters made 27 years later.  This time, Yosemite Sam switches roles, taking the character of The Ghost of Christmas Present, with Daffy Duck taking his place as our Scrooge.  At 45 minutes, this version is long by Looney Tunes standards, and suffers greatly for it.  The quick sight gag and cartoon violence style of these cartoons work best in 3 to 5 minute chunks.  Any longer, as this version proves, and the cartoon just become a humdrum and jumbled mess.  The film just seems to exist for the sake of existing, and gives no reason to pick it over a number of other choices.  If you see this movie, do yourself a favor and avoid it.
