Looney Tunes - Reality Check

Also, this isn't a very good bargain. [$$$] for an hour of material?
All modern-made Looney Tunes cartoons are awful. They feature none of the elements that made the others classic: uninspired voice-acting, poor comedic timing, little originality, and decent-at-best animation. In other words, no Mel Blanc, no Chuck Jones, and no Carl Stalling. Check out the Looney Tunes - Golden Collection series instead. Those are guaranteed to satisfy.
Please do not support the continued production of cruddy cartoons.
But the animation on these toons is TERRIBLE. Yeah, they're webtoons, but they're jerky and slow and, frankly, worse than the animation on 70s cartoons like "Fat Albert." It's almost painful to watch. The "special features" are pretty lackluster as well.
If you can ignore the awful animation and just try to enjoy the shorts, it's not bad, although it may have been easier to swallow if Warner Bros had condensed this and "Stranger Than Fiction" into one two-hour collection instead of two one-hour collections. It would feel like you're getting more for your money.
VOICE OVER IS HORRIFIC
and if you buy this for more than a penny - you're a fool like I was...thank heavens I only bought it cheap on VHS - if I had bought it on DVD I would have been more ticked off...
I can at least give it to someone with kids who won't know the difference, but for us adults...don't insult us futher - give us the originals, restored, but don't try to sell us this WORTHLESS PIECE OF JUNK!
Or what I could endure of it!
The drawings are bland and generic, reminding me of the many
cheap mass produced cartoons and web toons you see,
Backgrounds have no detail, solid colourfills
ALL Colours are just plain fills,
Animations look like flash animations,
Sound effects seem like they ALL come from 1 sound effect cd and VERY poorly synchronized and mixed, for instance, if the same
event occurs 5 times in a row they just play the exact same
sound effect five times, no variations....
Music, not much of it, pretty generic, almost NO synchronisation
Jokes... my little cousin didn't find them funny, neither did I,
and the comic timing is off, WAY off
Last but not least, the voice acting..... argg, the best would
probably be Daffy, the others ranged from bad to worse (even
worser and worsest...) with Bugs being pretty bad and Foghorn
absolutely taking the cake and biscuit and all.... sheesh
All in all, this is the one of the worst and most blatant attempts to cash in on a good franchise, why OH why couldn't they (WB that is) have put proper thought into this?
Oh, and one more thing, in one of the toons, they take Tweety/Sylvester into sadism with Tweety electrocuting Sylvester repeatedly in a electric chair execution chamber, not funny, basically disgusting, going from Looney Tunes style cartoon violence over to gruesome real life suffering (plus just not being funny in the least)
Verdict: guilty, one (1) star but only because I can't give any lower! I actually cannot find one (1) redeeming factor about this dvd (I looked). Avoid this release
Warner finally has the "no-brainer of the century",
after all these years: to release the "real"
classics (The Golden Collection), but adds
insult to long undured injury by tossing their 'garbage'
at us at the same time- hoping to confuse us?
The 56 Toons listed on the Golden Collection
represent the real deal: real art and real talent!
C'mon Warner: please listen to US!
