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

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.

Always been a big fan of the Chuck Jones Hubie and Bertie cartoons, which are seldom seen anywhere. The two mice are really unique creations, always scampering on the periphery of late 40s/early 50s Warner Bros. animation. I'm sure he had real fondness for them, although their output never challenged the big honchos at the studio, Bugs, Daffy or the Road Runner. But the films of these little rodent scamps are truly funny... something you can't always say about the output of the others. That's because there were only a handful of the H&Bs and a seemingly million of those other star vehicles. So, having all of them in a blu ray disc is a real treat. But, they also featured a lot of other Jones mouse cartoons, including all of the Sniffles collection and a smattering of others. There are one each of the Jack Benny imitations and Honeymooner parodies. I seem to remember others in both of those series, but they don't appear. Were they not all Chuck Jones? Odd they'd not include them. But what's here is beautifully presented

I've been a long time fan of WB toons. With the advent of the blu ray disc, I was ever hopeful that WB would do a really nice job on the "restoration" of these cartoons.

While the first disc's cartoons look very impressive, WB continues to overcrop the tops and bottoms of the picture in order to present a wider picture on your widescreen television. As a result, many gags and facial features that occur on the extreme top and bottom of the image are unable to be seen.

Furthermore, on more than half of these cartoons, the original title sequences are missing...being replaced by the re-release openings that are called "Blue Ribbon" titles (since they show a blue ribbon after the WB logo). This is a real shame as the original title sequences include all the production credits and music original to each cartoon.

My biggest beef with this two disc set is that the bonus cartoons presented on disc two are all presented in 480p...low definition. And while it is apparent that no attempt was made to restore any of the bonus cartoons, the fact that they were simply pulled from old masters to help fill out this set is not cool, especially for those of us who really love these cartoons. So basically you are getting one and a half discs of high definition cartoons and eight low definition cartoons.

I hope WB steps it up a little bit as far as quality for the future incarnations of these character specific cartoon sets.

Possibly the most exciting Looney Tunes release of the year stars some of Chuck Jones' smallest stars. Looney Tunes Mouse Chronicles: The Chuck Jones Collection gathers together a total of 19 beautifully restored classic cartoons, most of them new to DVD/Blu-Ray, comprising the entire filmographies of Sniffles the Mouse and Hubie and Bertie. Yes, it's really an entire collection devoted to relatively minor players in the Warner Bros. cartoon roster. Folks looking for Bugs or Daffy may be disappointed, but collectors will love this release.

The most exciting thing for longtime Warner cartoon buffs and collectors is the amazing uncut and restored versions of these cartoons. The restorations are eye-opening and look amazing. The use of colors and the lush backgrounds in the early Sniffles cartoons easily rival anything Disney was doing at the time. Some perfect examples would be "The Brave Little Bat" and "Sniffles Takes a Trip". "The Unbearable Bear" is another stand-out, taking place mostly at night, the colors really set the mood, which you couldn't really appreciate in the faded versions we've seen on television for decades. I am also happy to report that a total of four cartoons have their titles restored and are seen here for the first time since they were issued to theaters! The titles are "Little Brother Rat" and "Hush My Mouse" on Disc 1 and "Trap Happy Porky" and "The Hypo-Chondri-Cat" on Disc 2. The others are either still sporting their Blue Ribbon reissue titles or are ones that have always retained their original titles (due to never being reissued). You have to commend the folks in charge who went the extra mile for this release.

There is also a selection of eleven mice-themed bonus shorts on Disc 2.
