Product Description

Looney Tunes: Golden Collection Volume 4 (DVD)

More Looney Tunes. Your wish is our command. Because in this 4-disc set are 60 more of the most looneytic Looney Tunes ever unleashed on rabbits, pigs, mice or cats. Indeed, some have never before been on home video! Disc 1 features the tall, gray and haresome one. Disc 2 is all pig. Disc 3 is all about Speedy. And Disc 4 is the cats meow. One thing: to watch these, you must be as tall as this sign. Wrong disclaimer. Read the one in the box below. Got the idea? Now have fun

]]>

Amazon.com

Like previous installments, the Looney Tunes Golden Collection, Volume 4 mixes favorites from the Warner Bros. archives with relatively obscure older works. Chuck Jones' "Mississippi Hare" and Friz Freleng's "Sahara Hare" and "Knighty-Knight Bugs" (which won an Oscar) offer hilarious performances by Bugs. Two of Jones' earliest films, "The Night Watchman" and "Conrad the Sailor" prefigure his use of subtle expressions in his later cartoons. The disc of shorts by Frank Tashlin includes "Plane Daffy": pigeon see-duck-tress Hatta Mari anticipates Jayne Mansfield in such later Tashlin live-action comedies as Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter?

Not all of these films have aged as gracefully. Younger viewers will probably not catch the references to Charlie McCarthy, Bill Robinson, and other old film and radio stars. The Speedy Gonzalez cartoons feature ethnic humor that seems embarrassing today; it's also crashingly unfunny. Each disc offers a disclaimer about stereotypes, noting, "they were wrong then and are wrong today."

The discs are loaded with extras that range from a partial set of storyboards for "Sahara Hare" to three of the "Private Snafu" shorts, which were made for the "Army-Navy Screen Magazine" during WW II. The oddest extra is the documentary Bugs Bunny Superstar, which infuriated many of the Warner Bros. artists when it was released in 1977. Much of its information should be taken with a grain of salt. (Unrated, suitable for ages 6 and older: cartoon violence, some ethnic stereotypes, mild risqué humor, alcohol & tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

I know, we all have our favorite cartoons. And it's easy to nit-pick on the selection of 'toons in each volume. But, with the release of Vol. 4, there are still OVER 700 LOONEY TUNES that Warner Bros. can choose from. I think it's imperative that we fans continue supporting each release, in order to continue the Golden Collection series.

Having said that, I would prefer that they stop giving each disc a single theme. I love these classic cartoons, but even I will have trouble sitting through 15 Speedy Gonzales cartoons in a row. Wouldn't it be more fun for viewers to mix it up a little? Or better yet, take a cue from the Columbia House Video Library, and give each famous cartoon director his own disc.

OK, so I'm guilty of nit-picking, too. Vol. 4 is another treasure trove for classic animation fans, with incredible bonus materials. So come one, Looney Tunes fans! Grab The Golden Collection Vol. 4 so we can assure that "That's NOT all, folks!"

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
bugs has always been my favorite so the two star rating is not a knock on him or most of the other looney toons characters. the two star rating is based soley on the content of volume four. disc one is all bugs, half of them very good the other half less then memorable. the yosemitie sam "whoa" theme was cute. (whoa mule, whoa camel, whoa dragon) disc two "dash of tashin" are straight up generic cartoons. nice, cutezy, squirrels singing, birds chirping, you will watch it once and that will be that. disc three is speedy gonzalez a character i never cared for and a disc that may not even be watched once. disc four is dedicated to cats. i have three cats so its not as though i dont appreciate them, (the animals not the toons) its just that basically you have another disc of mostly less then memorable generic cartoons. i hate to be the one that dissents from all the other glowing five star reviews but its not like these sets come out all that frequently and they dont come cheap and if i may, i never cared for these "theme things" i would greatly prefer chronologic order. colombia does this theme stuff with its three stooges shorts and it drives me nuts. each disc comes with a written disclaimer bemoaning the hurtful and wrong images blah, blah, blah. there are a boat load of special features that you watch once or maybe not at all. another reviewer noted some edits and i also noted one in rabbit hood i remember robin hood says something in the end of the cartoon that appears to be edited here. okay, so i read my own review and it sounds so down, but honestly i thought volume four would be much much better. there are dozens and dozens of great toons sitting in some vault somewhere till who knows when?

Of all the Looney Tunes Golden Collection releases, this is easily the least of the four. In order:

The Bugs Bunny disc is the best of the four, at least as far as laughs go. A few of my favorites are on this disc, but for the most part they're just alright. Friz Freleng has never been my favorite Looney tunes director (that honor goes to Bob Clampett) and there's a good amount of his cartoons on this disc, so I give this one lower marks than I normally would. That's not to say that his cartoons are bad - far from it - but the sum of the parts is almost always greater than the whole with his cartoons. Every director has his share of dogs, of course (like when Chuck Jones tried to duplicate the brilliant DUCK AMUCK with the same thing happening to Bugs Bunny at the hands of Elmer Fudd - I don't enjoy seeing someone get the better of Bugs), but Freleng's cartoons seem to have a higher hit-or-miss ratio than the others. The ones with Wile E. Coyote aren't favorites, either - Wile E. is at his best when he doesn't speak.

Disc Two is given completely over to the cartoons of Frank Tashlin, and while a lot of his later cartoons were genious, his early ones that featured Porky when he was the only star in the house are interesting (to me, anyway) more as curios than anything else. They don't really seem to go anywhere when compared to later output. I keep in mind that the studio was still finding its way when these were made, and that when viewed from an historical perspective, they're interesting, but to me that's all they are. PLANE DAFFY and THE STUPID CUPID are the best examples of Tashlin's work present.

Giving Disc Three completely over to Speedy Gonzales was not a good idea in my opinion.
