They're the clown princes of animation. They're the international ambassadors of cartoon comedy. They're the fabulously funny friends you grew up with! And now, 28 of the very best animated shorts starring the very wackiest Warner Bros. cartoon characters have been rounded up on DVD for the first time ever in The Looney Tunes Premiere Collection! Just barely contained in two special edition discs, each specially selected short has been brilliantly restored and re-mastered to its original anvil-dropping, laughter-inducing glory! Featuring some of the very earliest, ground-breaking on-screen appearances of many all-time Looney Tunes favorites, it's an unprecedented animation celebration for cartoon-lovers eager to re-live the heady, hilarious, golden age of Warner Bros. animation! Sparkling with one unforgettable, landmark cartoon classic after another, there's Bugs Bunny's monstrously merry encounter with the tennis-shoe clad creature of Hair-Raising Hare. Wile E. Coyote and Roadrunner racing to cartoon immortality in Fast and Furryous. Oscar-winning animated gems, scenery-chewing Tazmanian Devils and much more! Plus, a dazzling array of totally Looney DVD bonus features!]]>
Top Customer Reviews
"Elmer's Candid Camera" (1940)--Elmer Fudd's out to shoot a wabbit--this time, with a camera. Unluckily for him, his subject is Bugs Bunny.
"Bugs Bunny and the Three Bears" (1944)--Goldilocks is nowhere to be found, but the Three Bears think Bugs is just right--to eat. Bugs, however, has other plans for the hapless trio.
"Fast and Furry-ous" (1949)--Accelerati Incredibulis meets Carnivarious Vulgaris on a desert highway. Carnivarious Vulgaris attempts to capture Accelerati Incredibulis. Final Score: Accelerati 1, Carnivarious 0, despite the latter's use of several fine Acme products.
"Hair-Raising Hare" (1946)--Bugs finds that monsters really do live such in-teresting lives.
"The Awful Orphan" (1949)--In this precursor to Single White Female, a persistent mutt shows Porky why dogs are man's best friend. Problem is, Porky's a pig.
"Haredevil Hare" (1948)--Decades before Neil Armstrong went to the Moon, a brave rabbit made one giant hop for mankind. Unfortunately, Marvin the Martian was waiting for him, with an Aludium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator.
"For Scent-imental Reasons" (1949)--This Oscar-winning short has "ze locksmith of love," Pepe LePew, pursuing a reluctant pussycat. "Do not come wiz me to ze Casbah," Pepe tells her. "We shall make beautiful musicks togezzer right here!" Pussycat is unimpressed.
"Frigid Hare" (1949)--Bugs takes a wrong turn at Albuquerque and winds up at the South Pole, pursued by an Eskimo. (Since there are no Eskimos at the South Pole, Bugs really made a wrong turn.) Bugs whips out the lipstick, and transsexual antics ensue.
"The Hypo-Chondri-Cat" (1950)--Hubie and Bertie the mice force Claude the hypochondriac cat to confront his inner demons--and angels.Read more ›
I would suggest you buy the Golden Collection, but remember that if you do, that you do NOT need this collection.
The set is flawed not so much by what is included but by what it omits; There's none of Tex Avery's formative Warner cartoons and Bob Clampett's wacky style is represented only by a couple of shorts (and his most zany Porky in Wackyland is MIA). While the set (like The Golden Collection) is heavy on Chuck Jones that could actually be a good thing. Jones' shorts were far and away the best the unit produced (outside of Clampett's) and also the most innovative. That's not to dismiss Friz Freleng's classics or Robert McKimson's best cartoons; Jones was more consistent and also pushed the boundary much more as a director. Much of his best work was done with Maurice Nobel and Michael Maltese and there's a couple of representative samples here as well (most notably The Fast and The Furry-ous).Read more ›
As a result, WB has released this excellent compilation of cartoons...a scaled down release of the Golden Collection. I, for one, am thrilled at this option, as it gives me the funds to add other cartoons to my collection, in addition to the Looney Tunes.
The transfers are excellent, and about my only complaint is that the cartoon listing on the box does not match the order of the segments on the discs.
However, if you want a sampling of Looney Tunes in your collection, but are on a budget...this is a great way to go.
