Story Pirates’ Acclaimed “Bugs and Daffy’s Thanksgiving Road Trip” (featuring Bowen Yang) Rides Again for 2022. The 4-part original podcast series produced for Warner Bros. Animation
New York — The Story Pirates, the multiple award-winning comedy-improv group known for celebrating the wild imaginations of kids through their performances and top-rated podcast (Gimlet/Spotify), are once again sharing the four-part holiday podcast series they produced for Warner Bros. Animation. Based on two iconic Looney Tunes characters, “Bugs and Daffy’s Thanksgiving Road Trip” (with a cameo appearance by Story Pirates friend Bowen Yang) is available wherever podcasts are streamed.
The series was released right before Thanksgiving last year, and it was the first time Looney Tunes characters starred in a podcast. Parents everywhere found kids were captivated by the hilarious antics of Bugs and Daffy. As listener @Audrey noted: “If you need to distract your kids today so you can cook, allow me to suggest this Looney Tunes podcast. And it’s from Story Pirates, so you know it’s good!” Listener @shilhaursa tweeted: “This made my whole Thanksgiving weekend. I loved every second of it. You could clearly see the care put into it from writing, sound design and acting. It’s hard to pin down my favorite part, but I’d be lying if I said that the surprise Bowen Yang cameo didn’t make me so happy.”
This is Looney Tunes like you’ve never heard before, as the rascally rabbit and despicable duck embark on a rollicking road trip across the country. To stream “Bugs and Daffy’s Thanksgiving Road Trip”, visit: https://www.storypirates.com/looney-tunes.
When Bugs and Daffy are invited to the Warner Bros. backlot for a big Thanksgiving feast, Daffy refuses to go unless he gets to be the official bird of Thanksgiving. Daffy wants to become famous so that Warner Bros. will make a big-budget movie about him. So, Bugs and Daffy embark on a cross-country road trip, causing mayhem at football games, chili cook-offs and fashion shows. Will all of these high-profile appearances be enough to make Daffy the Thanksgiving Duck? The answer comes only by listening to “Bugs and Daffy’s Thanksgiving Road Trip.” As Daffy says in one episode, “Who authorized this?”
