Looney Tunes The Chuck Jones Collection Mouse Chronicles (Blu-ray)

From animation legend Chuck Jones comes the big cheese of mouse collections! Enjoy 19 remastered animated shorts featuring some mischievous mice and their daring adventures! Introducing Sniffles. He's cute, curious and got a heckuva cold! In Naughty But Mice, audiences came to know Sniffles as a sweet, wide-eyed simpleton with a talent for getting himself into trouble. But over the years, Jones had evolved Sniffles into an overly talkative but endearing nuisance. A trouble-loving twosome with a passion for pranks, Chuck Jones let loose the mice, Hubie and Bertie, in the short The Aristo-Cat. A departure from his previous cute and naivé characters, Hubie and Bertie solidified a new direction for Jones. The change paid off with the Oscar®-nominated Mouse Wreckers*, which finds Hubie and Bertie tormenting their favorite nemesis Claude Cat with rapid-fire humor and sight gags galore. So steal a snack and scurry back to your hideout for some laughs and mouse-chief with the latest Chuck Jones Collection! * Mouse Wreckers – Short Subject (Cartoon) 1949

Format: DVD
Both cartoons are good since they were made in the golden age of cartoons. Sniffles cartoons are cute and charming, even though he's a Looney Tunes character but his cartoons are mostly a resemblance of Disney cartoons. While Hubie and Bertie are really the Lonney Tunes that act looney, their cartoons are funny and hilarious. This is only for those who want both cartoons in a complete set.

Update: Original opening titles found on some cartoons recently that will appear on this release all remastard back to the cartoons - *

Here how the content will be on both discs (all are directed by Chuck Jones):
Disc 1: Sniffles the Mouse
Naughty but Mice (1939)
Little Brother Rat (1939)*
Sniffles and the Bookworm (1939) My personal favorite
Sniffles Takes a Trip (1940, previously seen as a bonus cartoon on Golden Collection Vol. 6) Note: it's completely remastard unlike its previous release which look ugly.
The Egg Collector (1940)
Bedtime for Sniffles (1940) kind of boring
Sniffles Bells the Cat (1941)
Toy Trouble (1941)
The Brave Little Bat (1941) pretty good
The Unbearable Bear (1943) kind of funny
Lost and Foundling (1944)
Hush My Mouse (1946)* very funny

Disc 2: Hubie & Bertie
The Aristo-Cat (1943, previously seen on Golden Collection Vol. 4)
Trap Happy Porky (1945)* Funny
Roughly Squeaking (1946) My personal favorite
House Hunting Mice (1947) Good
Mouse Wreckers (1949, previously seen on Golden Collection Vol. 2) great humor
The Hypo-Chondri Cat (1950, previously seen on Golden Collection Vol.

this release is outstanding. i remember watching these toons as a kid and besides bringing back a piece of my childhood they are beautifully rendered in fine vibrant colors. the sound is spectacular. this is one of the best out there if your looking for quality old school cartoons. it's too bad kids today don't get a chance to see real animation and genuine quality cartoons. These are the classics. it doesn't get any better than this.

Format: Blu-ray
After letting their beloved "Golden Collection" DVD line end a few years back, Warner Bros is slowly redeeming itself in the eyes of fans with new-to-video collections like this on Blu-ray and DVD. And let me just say up front that if you are a true fan, Blu-ray is the ONLY way to go here. Aside from the obvious higher resolution images, the Blu set contains 11 additional mouse-themed cartoons, for a total of 30 shorts.

You probably already know if these are the kind of Looney Tunes you like. There's no Bugs Bunny here, or "the one with the singing frog." It's just what it says: mouse cartoons, and lots of 'em. Of course, the collection is also essential for fans of the great Chuck Jones. We all know that this doesn't quite represent the maverick director's funniest or most inspired work that he would achieve in his later cartoons. Looney Tunes in general, didn't exactly get, well, looney until the mid-40's anyway. But Jones was still a great visual storyteller, and even his more generic stuff (Sniffles, I'm looking at YOU), was often still colorful and charming.

My only complaint with the set is that the cartoons are not listed on the package, nor are there any helpful liner notes. The Looney Tunes Platinum Collection: Volume One (Ultimate Collector's Edition) [Blu-ray] contained a very nice and detailed booklet, listing and describing each short. I admit this is a minor problem, but as a hardcore fan, I expected a little more in the package.

So is the "Mouse Chronicles" essential viewing? For true LT fans, of course it is. Casual viewers, however, will probably be bored by some the older, and admittedly less amusing, shorts.

Format: DVD
I'm looking forward to this set for one reason
(six, actually) and that is we finally get all
six Hubie & Bertie cartoons in one set. Four
of these have been previously released on other
sets, but it will be nice to finally get 'House
Hunting Mice' and 'Roughly Squeaking'. Hubie &
Bertie were two of my most favorite Chuck Jones
creations, though they were clearly inspired by
the repartee of Leo Gorcey and Huntz Hall of the
Dead End Kids / Bowery Boys pictures. Most of
the Sniffles cartoons (included here) suffered
from an overdose of Disney-inspired cuteness -
except for the final two, when they began to
pattern the character on the 'inquisitive kid'
from the old Fibber McGee & Molly radio show.
("Whatcha doin', mister? Huh? What's yer name?")
Sniffles is very funny in these indeed. I'm sure
one or titles on the extra disc will make the
whole thing a bit more worthwhile.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I received this DVD collection. I was amazed that all 12 of the Sniffles cartoons, and all of which make up the first of the two discs in this set, are here. The cartoons that have been de-Blue Ribbonized are "Little Brother Rat" and "Hush My Mouse" on disc 1, and "Trap Happy Porky" and "The Hypo-Chondri Cat" on disc 2.

And now, my complaints:
* The bonus cartoon, Mouse-Warming, should have been restored as the main cartoon for it was directed by Chuck Jones.
* The Mouse on 57th Street is another missing Jones short about a mouse.
* Among the bonus cartoons that should've made the cut: The Cat Came Back (directed by Friz Freleng), A Sunbonnet Blue (directed by Tex Avery) and Mouse-Placed Kitten (directed by Robert McKimson)

Overall, this is a good collection of shorts. Recommended for all those who want to see Sniffles.
