As MJ was just getting rid of the rust, he also had a huge side project in the works. On November 10, 1996, MJ made history by teaming up with the Looney Tunes characters to defeat a bunch of space monsters in basketball.
Other NBA players to feature in the film included Larry Bird, Charles Barkley, Shawn Bradley, Patrick Ewing, Larry Johnson, and Muggsy Bogues. The film went on to gross $250.2 at the box office, making it the 15th highest-earning movie of 1996. It seemed that whatever business MJ was involved in, he would always succeed. Well, except for baseball, of course.
