From the Manufacturer
Th-Th-Th-That’s All, Folks!
They’re the cartoons you grew up with and the ones your own kids will come to know and love. Welcome back to the wonderful, wacky world of Warner Bros. Looney Tunes, starring Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Road Runner and all their zany friends. Brought to life by the creative genius of Tex Avery, Chuck Jones and Friz Freleng, these classic cartoon characters are some of the best ever to grace the animated stage.
Looney Tunes was established in 1930.
Bugs Bunny has starred in 170 films and has even won an Oscar.
In 1997, Bugs Bunny became the first animated character to appear on a U.S. postage stamp.
Mel Blanc has done the voice work for about 90 percent of Looney Tunes characters.
Fritz Freleng directed more than 240 of the Looney Tunes cartoons, the most by far of any of the studio’s directors.
The cartoon 'What’s Opera, Doc' (starring Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd) was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry because of its cultural significance.
- The first six volumes of the Golden Age Collection
- Hundreds of original, unedited cartoons on 24 DVDs
- Tons of bonus features, including “lost” cartoons, commentaries and more
- Digitally re-mastered for superb sound and picture quality
- Beautiful boxed set is perfect for gift-giving or for your own DVD collection
Meet the Characters
Bugs Bunny (voiced by Mel Blanc)
The leader of the Looney Tunes gang, Bugs Bunny is one of the smartest, craftiest hares around. He always manages to get the best of his foes.
Daffy Duck (voiced by Mel Blanc)
Best friend and occasional rival of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck is a zany, clever schemer who always seems to be in trouble.
Porky Pig (voiced by Mel Blanc)
Best known for his stuttering voice, Porky is the gang’s shy and cowardly, yet wise and good-natured, sidekick.
Sylvester the Cat (voiced by Mel Blanc)
Sylvester lives with his owner, Granny, and her bird Tweety and dog Hector. Sylvester’s one goal in life is to make a meal out of Tweety.

There is easily enough good material to fill another 4-disc volume! I wish Warner Brothers went up to seven volumes instead of stopping at six. Seven volumes (of about 60 cartoons each) would have been the ideal number in order to include all the best.
The cartoons on this set all have superb picture quality, especially considering how old some of them are. (Compare some of the cartoons in this set with the same WB cartoons in cheap public domain collections and you'll see what I mean!)
In recent years WB cartoons have often been tampered with for TV broadcasts, for both "political correctness" (chopping out gags containing ethnic stereotypes) and "violence" (chopping out slapstick gags that involve explosions, gunshots, etc.) Every single cartoon in this collection is unedited and uncensored!
Also, I'm pleased to report that the cartoons that were originally made in black and white are presented on these discs in black and white; absolutely no colorized versions are included.
With so much going for this collection, I hate to nitpick, but if it were up to me I would have arranged some of these in a different order. There is a series of three closely related Bugs Bunny & Daffy Duck cartoons made in the early 1950's generally known as the "hunting trilogy", that involve Bugs and Daffy trying to outwit each other against Elmer Fudd.Read more ›
Update: March 27, 2012
It took me a long time to get through this set and after cataloguing and cross referencing every film heretofore collected, I have sadly come to the realization that this is NOT an omnibus. There are over 1000 Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies shorts that were made throughout the golden age. That means that this collection represents roughly ONE THIRD of all WB cartoons from the era. This set provides a little over HALF of the Bugs Bunny cartoons created, and he is the most well represented character here. We only get FIVE Foghorn Leghorn cartoons, and only THREE Pepe Lepews. That means that BOSKO the Talk-Ink Kid (anyone remember him?) is better represented here than Foghornn and Pepe.Read more ›
What you get here is a huge amount of cartoons with Bugs, Daffy, Porky, and Elmer, as well as a decent amount of Tweety and Sylvester, Road Runner, Speedy Gonzales, and Yosemite Sam. Foghorn Leghorn and Pepe Le Pew also appear, although they are underrepresented in this set.
There are also cartoons featuring more obscure characters such as Marvin the Martian, Tasmanian Devil, Hubie and Berty, Marc Antony and Pussyfoot, Chuck Jones' Three Bears, Witch Hazel, Michigan J. Frog, Owl Jolson, Buddy, Bosko, and many others, as well as some characters who were never named. Some of the cartoons here are old black and white cartoons from the early 1930s which I had never seen before.
On top of that, every one of the 24 discs here contains a massive amount of extras, including commentary tracks, documentaries, interviews, etc.
Overall, this is a wonderful collection!

Love the individual cartoons. Unfortunately, the set is currated about as horribly as possible. It does not recreate the feeling of watching Saturday Morning Cartoons. Read morePublished 18 days ago by S. Sommerdorf

I own the Golden Collection Volume 1, and that particular box says, "Languages: English & Francais", "Subtitles:English, Francais & Espanol", so it SEEMS that would mean you have the option of either an English or French vocal track, and selectable subtitles in either English,... Read More
