Product Description

Looney Tunes: Golden Collection Vol. 6 (DVD)

Amazon.com

Fifteen cartoons dating from World War II give Volume 6 of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection more focus than previous sets. Many of the 1940's cartoons remain very funny. Bugs Bunny dresses up as Brunnhilda and rides in to the strains of "Tannhauser" in "Herr Meets Hare" (1945), a gag Chuck Jones re-used to greater effect in "What's Opera, Doc" a dozen years later. In "Russian Rhapsody" (1940) some of the gremlins who sabotage Hitler's bomber are caricatures of the Warner Bros. artists. Chuck Jones appears as a chunky, pinkish-tan homunculus swinging a mallet; Friz Freleng is a little green man with a saw-like nose. Younger viewers may find the references to wartime shortages puzzling--or fail to recognize the caricatures of Hermann Goering, Hideki Tojo and Joseph Stalin. Some of the other cartoons can still bring down the house, including "Satan's Waitin'" (1954), in which Sylvester manages to lose all nine of his lives in pursuit of Tweety, and "Bear Feat" (1949), another exercise in futility for Jones' Three Bears. The early musicals featuring Bosko, Foxy (or Freddy Fox) and Buddy have not aged well. Created by Hugh Harman and Rudy Ising, these characters were modeled on Felix the Cat and Mickey Mouse, but lack charm and personality. Some more recent films reveal how social attitudes have changed. "Wild Wife," a spoof of a suburban housewife's tribulations, may have seemed hilarious in 1954; today, it's just a laundry list of sexist gags. Like the previous installments, Volume 6 comes loaded with extras. The rarest are five shorts Friz Freleng directed at MGM in 1938. Producer Fred Quimby lured Freleng away from Warner Bros.--only to insist he adapt the comic strip "The Captain and the Kids," Rudolph Dirks' version of "The Katzenjammer Kids." Freleng correctly predicted the films would flop as the characters were "the meanest little bastards in the world," and soon returned to Warners. (Unrated, suitable for ages 6 and older: cartoon violence, ethnic stereotypes, mild risqué humor, alcohol & tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, I can retire "The Wartime Cartoons." September 5, 2008
Verified Purchase
I can't believe another reviewer blasted this set for including a disc of the WWII cartoons. These are classic pieces of American and film history.

Finally, all the cartoons from the fabulous Bugs & Daffy: Wartime Cartoons VHS are now on DVD. Of course, I may still keep that VHS for Leonard Maltin's narration, but here's the breakdown of that tape vs. the Golden Collection discs.

Herr Meets Hare: GC #6
Super Rabbit: GC #3
Draftee Daffy: GC #3
Plane Daffy: GC #4
Daffy the Commando: GC #6
Falling Hare: GC #3
Russian Rhapsody: GC #6
Swooner Crooner: GC#4
Little Red Riding Rabbit: GC #2
The Weakly Reporter: GC #6
5th Column Mouse: GC #6

With the The Complete Uncensored Private Snafu cartoons also on DVD, it's good to know these pieces of history have been preserved.

Let's face it--"Looney Tunes Golden Collection, Volume 6" isn't going to please everyone. If you're looking for an exceptional collection of "classics" that you grew up on watching TV, go for the "Spotlight Collection, Volume 6" as it features the highlights of this set plus two handfuls of rare cartoons that haven't been seen in some time. For many fans, though, this set is just about perfect. It includes rare vintage World War II cartoons that featured Bugs and other Warner staples face-to-face with Hitler and others as well as a great collection of classic cartoons.

Here's a break down and brief synposis of most of the cartoons on each disc:
To Duck...or Not to Duck- A Daffy Duck/Elmer Fudd cartoon by Tedd Pierce and Chuck Jones. Daffy is in his goofy incarnation and the relationship here hints at the one that Jones would develop between Bugs and Elmer later.

Birth of a Notion - One of the rare war time efforts included here from Volume 6--a great one I might add) belongs to the Blue Ribbon group of reissued cartoons which means there are no credits for who wrote and directed it but it clear is a Bob Clampett effort that follows Daffy Duck as he tries to get a home for the winter by "appearing" to save a dog from being poisoned.

My Little Duckaroo (Daffy again)

Crowing Pains -Foghorn Leghorn in his first cartoon

Raw! Raw! Rooster -Another Foghorn cartoon with McKimson at his best. Heaven Scent -Peppy Le Pew one Jones few characters that I never really appreciated.

My Favorite Duck-One of the first pairings of Jones and Maltese also puts together Porky Pig and Daffy Duck as the latter tries to prevent Porky from camping out. Porky wears what looks like a baby nipple on his head. It's a chuckle.

Name a 'toon not on the golden collection sets you WISH was there.
How about the classics Bugs Bunny Nips the Nips, Coal Black and de Sebben Dwarfs, Little Hiawatha, All this and Rabbit Stew, Fresh Hare (uncut), Which is Witch, and Bushy Hare?

Trying to find the name of Bugs Bunny episode with nephew.
It was either 'His Hare Raising Tale' (1951) or 'Yankee Doodle Bugs' (1954) with Bugs' nephew Clyde Rabbit.

Neither are in any of the 'Golden Collections'.

"The Looney Tunes Spotlight Collection Volume 7" will be issued on October 13th, 2009. Unfortunately, it is merely a 2-DVD set of 26 cartoons previously released in "Looney Tunes Golden Collections" Volumes 1,2 & 3.

How about a Diamond Collection...hmm...
They will never please everyone no matter if they released them chronologically or by character.

If they did it chronologically we would have a ton of old b&w toons to get through before the color ones. The fans of the 50's and 60's shorts would have a conniption fit.
