The Flash is running through the desert when Road Runner and then Wile E. Coyote go speeding past. Coyote, with his rocket boots, goes flying off the edge of a cliff and falls to his cartoon death, holding a sign "You Could Save Me Y'Know" as he whizzes past a confused Flash.
The people behind this mess, Mr Mxy and the Do-Do are busy causing yet more trouble, this time for Green Lantern. GL comes into contact with Marvin the Martian and his dog K-9. Stopping suddenly, GL crashes into them. They quickly give him a box of Fleebs, and then disappear. GL opens the box, and is assaulted by loads of tribble like creatures.
Across the DCU, heroes are being harassed.
Back in Midtown, Plastic Man is busy looking for Pepe Le Pew, when he comes across Sylvester and Tweety. Then, Batman arrives. The pair quickly fight The Penguin - the real one.
Meanwhile, Mxy and Do-Do are arguing. Mxy wants to cross Elmer Fudd with Superman.
Fudd, meanwhile, is busy being tricked by Bugs Bunny yet again. Suddenly, Fudd is wearing Superman's costume, and Clark Kent has the uncontrollable urge to hunt rabbits. Overhearing a radio, Fudd heads for Metropolis where a huge flying spaceship has appeared over the city controlled by The Toyman. Fudd takes off, Clark jumps out of the store room window in a clown suit and no powers! Managing to quickly grab the window frame, Clark climbs back in. Down on the ground, people call "Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! No, it's... a Fudd?!"
Meanwhile, the Do-Do starts fiddling again, and this time it's Batman and Daffy Duck that feels odd.
Back in Metropolis, Fudd and Bugs land on the spaceship, just as it's about to fire on them...
Story - 4: Well what a turn around from last month, either I wasn't in the right frame of mind, or this was infinitely better. Oddly enough I prefered the bits without Superman. The Flash sequence at the beginning was great, especially the sign. One of the loveliest touches was Fudd's lock of hair when he was SuperFudd. If you want a laugh, and you like Looney Toons, buy this!
Art - 3: Same as last issue really. The Looney Toons themselves look great. Really well drawn and capturing the look wonderfully. The DCU characters are, sadly, not drawn very well at all. What's interesting is that the Looney Toons' colouring is all the same shade, they are flat. Never noticed before.
Cover Art - 3: Superman spoils this, he looks a right idiot. Fudd looks great in his Superman costume, with that classic bouncing-bullets-off-the-chest look.
