Editorial Reviews

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 naiv‚ characters, Hubie and Bertie solidified a new direction for Jones. The change paid off with the Oscarr-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!

4.0 out of 5 stars It's a Looney life. . . August 28, 2012
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hubie and Bertie finally get their day! November 19, 2012
Verified Purchase
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

3.0 out of 5 stars Looney but not a home run September 2, 2012
Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sniffles never looked so good - A must buy for fans September 9, 2012
Verified Purchase
I have been a fan of the classic Looney Tunes since I was a kid in the 70's. I own all of the gold series boxes, and still have the old laserdiscs. I have passed on buying the Blu-Rays so far until they start releasing some of the older ones that have not been put out on DVD. When I saw that this would include the entire collection of Sniffles cartoons, I had to buy it. All I can say is WOW! I have never seen these look so good! I immediately compared the Blu-Ray and DVD versions of "Sniffles takes a Trip", and cannot believe the difference. There is so much more detail in the picture and colors, it's amazing. It's good to know that they are finally doing justice to the work of those great artists that made these short films. The Blu-Ray also has 11 bonus cartoons that are not included on the DVD set. Never cared much for the Hubie/Bertie cartoons, but they look amazing as well..

Although I am highly impressed with this release, I will probably still pass on upcoming Blu-Rays unless they offer cartoons that have not been released before. Come on Warner Bros., do a proper series with EVERYTHING and in chronological order like you did with the Laserdiscs so many years ago.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Chuck Jones and Hubie and "Boit"-what else do you need?
Not much of a Sniffles fan (a bit too goody-two-shoes for my taste) but for the Hubie and Boit cartoons ("Wait, wait! You gotta massacre me!") this is worth it.
