VIDEO: Historians remember 'Space Jam' game in fake ESPN 30 for 30

Nearly two decades ago, Swackhammer sent his Nerdlucks into Looney Tune Land to capture Bugs Bunny, Elmer Fudd, and the rest of the cartoon characters in an effort to enslave them as attractions at his Moron Mountain. When negotiating for their freedom, the Looney Tunes agree to battle the tiny Nerdlucks in a game of basketball that will determine their fate.

Nearly two decades ago, Swackhammer sent his Nerdlucks into Looney Tune Land to capture Bugs Bunny, Elmer Fudd, and the rest of the cartoon characters in an effort to enslave them as attractions at his Moron Mountain. When negotiating for their freedom, the Looney Tunes agree to battle the tiny Nerdlucks in a game of basketball that will determine their fate.

When the Nerdlucks captured the powers of NBA stars like Patrick Ewing and Charles Barkley, though, the Monstars became a greater threat and the future looked bleak for Bugs and company.

Enter: Michael Jordan.

The characters enlisted the help of NBA superstar Michael Jordan and what followed was one of the greatest contests in the history of sports.

Now, nearly twenty years later, NBA analysts and basketball historians look back on the infamous "Space Jam game."

"They killed Foghorn Leghorn right in front of his teammates and they just kept going. They didn't even acknowledge it."

Doug Gottlieb of CBS Sports, Daffy Duck, and the fake author of Of Monstars and Men help to recount the tale of the Tune Squad's epic comeback.

"Remember, this is 1995. The day before, we didn't even know that aliens existed. Now, they're playing basketball with His Airness, himself."
