My kids (and my husband and I) really enjoy watching these cartoons.

Getting this for our great grandson so he can experience something other than the cartoons available on TV now.

After viewing this DVD, I found the cartoons to be of excellent quality.

Don't you just hate it when the description of one of these classic cartoon sets doesn't include a description of the cartoons? In this case, they are really worth mentioning, as some, such as Disc Two's "Peace on Earth," aren't exactly kiddie fare, and many others are true animation classics (I've starred the ones I think best earn that honor). With that in mind, here's a description of each cartoon, written as I watch them:

DISC ONE

Each of these was honored by the Academy as the Best Cartoon of the Year:

1. THE MILKY WAY* (MGM, 1940)
Clear color, great clarity and a nice period song highlight this restored cute classic. When three little kittens lose their mittens, they're sent straight to bed -- where they dream that they sail a hot air balloon up into the Milky Way, a land overflowing with milk geysers and springs. The cartoon was the first Oscar winner that wasn't produced by Disney.

2. YANKEE DOODLE MOUSE* (MGM, 1943)
Typical Tom and Jerry antics doused in patriotic instrumentals such as "Anchors Aweigh" and "Over There." Dynamite, egg grenades and champagne-bottle corks are the weapons of choice. I'll admit I'm not the biggest Tom & Jerry fan, but my 13-year-old daughter loves this one.

3. MOUSE TROUBLE (MGM, 1944)
Tom's the one in trouble as he attempts to rid the house of Jerry, using the ideas in a book called "How to Catch a Mouse (A Random Mouse Book)."

4. QUIET PLEASE* (MGM, 1945)
Even I like this one. In fact, I LOVE this one! Though it's directed by Hanna and Barbera, Tex Avery's jaw-dropping influence is all through it. Funny gags, great character expressions! When a sleepy Spike threatens to kill Tom if the cat doesn't keep quiet ("If I hear one more sound I've gonna skin you alive, get it?

There's been a lot of vintage cartoon sets in the past year, but this one is one of the best for kids. Unlike the otherwise superb Chronological Donald Vol. 3 or Popeye the Sailor Vol. 1, this one features a wide variety of characters so it never starts to wear thin. And since it's only one disc, it doesn't require you to lay out big bucks in order to own some re-mastered classics. If you're a real animation buff, you may be happier with the expanded Warner Bros. Academy Awards Animation Collection - 15 Winners, 26 Nominees. It's this disc plus two more, with many other gems, all at a good price.

Here's a description of the cartoons on this DVD. I've starred my favorites:

1. THE MILKY WAY* (MGM, 1940)
Clear color, great clarity and a nice period song highlight this restored cute classic. When three little kittens lose their mittens, they're sent straight to bed -- where they dream that they sail a hot air balloon up into the Milky Way, a land overflowing with milk geysers and springs.

2. YANKEE DOODLE MOUSE* (MGM, 1943)

Looney Tunes DVD suggestions
WHV started a new DVD series in 2010 called "Looney Tunes Super Stars" which released a total of 99 newly remastered shorts to DVD, some of which you mentioned (though I'm not counting "revival/post-'69 shorts").

I just came up with another good idea as to how WHV could... Read More
