Space Jam is a 1996 American family live-action/animated featuring Looney Tunes characters. The film was produced by Ivan Reitman, and directed by Joe Pytka, with Tony Cervone and Bruce W. Smith directing the animation.

A fictional account of Michael Jordan's first retirement from the NBA, the film was released theatrically by Warner Bros. under the Family Entertainment brand label on November 15, 1996. It plays out as an alternate story of Jordan's initial return to basketball, this time with him being inspired by Bugs Bunny and friends. Despite mixed reviews from critics, Space Jam was a box office success, opening at #1 in the US, and grossing over $230 million worldwide.


Barkley: It was this girl, 5'-nothin'. Blocked my shot!
Psychiatrist: When did you first start having this dream?
Barkley: It wasn't a dream! It really happened!

Psychiatrist: Are there any other areas besides basketball where you find yourself unable to perform?
Ewing: No!
Psychiatrist: I'm just asking.

Bill: [pops up near the end of the game] Hey! Perhaps I could be of some assistance.
Michael: That's our 5th guy. Thanks, Bill. Now you get to live up your dream.
Bill: All right.
Michael: All right. We need to score two points.
Bill: Here's how I see it. Duck!
Daffy: Yes!
Bill: You kick it into the girl bunny, down to the post. [to Lola] You dish it back out to the guy bunny.
Lola: Got it.
Bill: Swing it around to Mike over here. You go to the hole and dominate!
Michael: Bill! We're on defense!
Bugs and Daffy: Oh, yeah.
Bill: Whoa-ho-ho! I don't play defense.
Michael: Typical.
Bill: All right. You're gonna have to listen to Mike on this, guys. Listen up.
Michael: Okay. Somebody steal the ball, get it to me, and I'll score before the time runs out.
Bill: Don't lose that confidence! Okay! [stacks hands with the team] Paws and wings in here. All right!

[Stan has finished digging up the golf hole that Michael got sucked down, and still no sign of him]
Stan: This is it! THIS IS IT! I don't know where you are, Michael! But wherever you are, you obviously enjoy bein' there more than spendin' time with me!
Daffy: You'd better hope this Jordan character still knows how to play hoops.
Bugs: You and me both, brother.
Daffy: Listen. How's this for a new team name? The Ducks!
Bugs: Please! What kinda Mickey Mouse organization would name their team "The Ducks"?
Daffy: So sue me! It's just a suggestion.

Muggsy Bogues: What are you saying? That I'm tryna disobey my mama?
Psychiatrist: I didn't say that. You did, Muggsy.
Muggsy: But I love my mama.

Bill: [after Michael is reluctant to let him join the NBA] It's 'cause I'm white, isn't it?
Michael: No. Larry's white. So what?
Bill: Larry's not white. Larry's clear.

[as Michael's golf ball rolls toward the hole in an unusual way]
Bill: It is alive!

[Michael tries to walk on the Looney Tunes' gym floor, but his cleats get stuck, and he falls down]
Michael: Anyone lend me a pair of sneakers?
Bugs: Uh, sneakers?
[he and the other Tunes look down at their feet; no one is wearing sneakers]
Foghorn: Uh...
Tweety: Sorry.
Michael: Someone's gonna have to go to my house and pick up my basketball gear.
Daffy: To your house? In 3-D Land?
Michael: Yeah. Whatever you do, don't forget my North Carolina shorts.
Daffy: Your shorts? From college?
Michael: I wore them under my Chicago Bulls uniform every game.
Looney Tunes: [grossed out] Eww!
Michael: Hey! I washed 'em after every game!
[the Looney Tunes laugh sarcastically]
Sylvester: Sure!
Michael: I did!
Daffy: Gross.

Johnson: I've been MRI'd, EKG'd, X-rayed, laser beamed,...
Ewing: Still can't find anything wrong with us.
Muggsy: Hey, maybe there's nothin' wrong with us.
Johnson: That's right, Muggs. Maybe it's just in our heads.
Muggsy: We're fine. It's just some psychosomatic deal or somethin' to do with the moon or the alignment of the planet.

[Bugs and Daffy dig their way into the real world]
Daffy: The view back there stinks!
[they stop digging]
Daffy: Oh, what?
Bugs: We're right in front of Michael's house!
Daffy: I knew that!
Bugs: Shh! Okay. Let's go in this way.
Daffy: I say let's go in that way.
[They split up as they continue digging]
Bugs: He just never loins.

Taz: [after he finished cleaning the gym] Lemony fresh!

[Stan comes to warn Michael]
Stan: The Monstars stole the talent from the N.B.A. players!
[Michael and the Looney Tunes look shocked]
Michael: So that's what happened to those guys!
