  In 1996, Bugs Bunny and his Looney Tunes cast members starred in the blockbuster hit Space Jam alongside basketball legend Michael Jordan.  The movie was inspired by a series of 1992 and 1993 Nike ads selling "Hare Jordan" sneakers featuring Bugs Bunny and Michael Jordan.

Space Jam opens with a diabolical character from outer space deciding to capture the Looney Tunes and make them an attraction at his amusement park.  Of course, the fun and fancy-free Bugs Bunny and friends want nothing to do with the idea.  They challenge the villain and his minions to a basketball game, with their freedom at stake.

Meanwhile, retired basketball star Michael Jordan is playing golf with friends.  Suddenly, a hole opens up and he is lassoed into the cartoon world by Bugs Bunny.  The Looney Tunes ask Jordan to help them win their basketball game, and he reluctantly agrees after hearing trash talk from the opposing team.

Bugs and his friends, including a new love interest named Lola Bunny, play hard against their enemies from space.  Bugs shows off his abilities on the court, proving he can do more than just wear a costume and trick his opponent.  Over the years there have been rumors about a Space Jam sequel.  Imagine how great it would be to see everyone's favorite hare back in action!
