Summary: The Groovy Goolies are watching a TV interview with Daffy Duck about the King Arthur movie he is making. Suddenly, the interview is interrupted by The Phantom of the Flickers, who announces that he will sabotage the movie and prevent any further Daffy films from being made. So the Goolies rush off to Hollywood to help Daffy, Porky, Sylvester, Tweety and the others.
Daffy and his gang, unaware of The Phantom of the Flickers, mistake the Groovie Goolies for stuntmen, and, when The Phantom of the Flickers begins to do destroy the studios, Daffy suspects that the Groovie Goolies are the ones behind the mischief...
Note: - The Groovie Goolies were introduced on Sabrina And The Groovie Goolies (1970-71), and later ran in syndication (as Groovie Goolies And Friends; 1972-75), which hosted component segments such as My Favorite Martian or The New Adventures Of Gilligan. Their team-up with the Looney Tunes characters originally aired on Dec. 18, 1972, as part of the weekly series The ABC Saturday Superstar Movie, and combined characters from two different studios (Warner Bros. and Filmation).
- The movie is out among traders in black & white, but the German and the UK PAL video release are both in colour (with both PAL versions having the live action sequence near the end edited out). The live-action segment (where the Goolies became live-action characters when they entered the "Mad Mirror Land") was reedited and packaged with the syndicated show as a segment called The Haunted Heist.
- Bugs Bunny, the Road Runner and Speedy Gonzalez are absent from this project, and the Goolies do not sing in this outing.

Our Ranking

short review:

As a kid, I used to watch the "Looney Tunes" (together with my dad, and we both got our fun out of it), while the "Groovie Goolies" somehow passed me. After watching this little stinker, I have to say I didn't miss anything. Blending the two different cartoon ensembles seems like a nice idea at first sight, but the producers failed completely. Apart from the lousy animation, the film can't sustain the sense of humour the "Looney Tunes" usually delivered. Maybe your children may like the story (if they are really young), but as soon as you're able to think for yourself, you will probably be loathing it.
