This review is from: Looney Tunes: Golden Collection, Vol. 5 (DVD)
The entire Looney Tunes Golden Collections may be praised on a number of levels.
The careful restoration of these films has allowed the viewer to see them in a manner unmatched since probably when they premiered in the movie theaters. Thus, not only are we treated to what fans of Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies already knew, that these cartoon shorts contain comedic timing and characterizations worthy to stand alongside the comedy masters of American cinema, we can now see much more clearly how wonderful and impressive is the art work and animation.
While many of the cartoons are familiar from repeated television viewings, a number of interesting and entertaining shorts contained in these sets have been a revelation. And while not every one of the 1000 or so cartoons released by Warner Brothers is a gem, the films as a whole provide an educational glimpse of a provocative era in American history, ca. 1930 - 1960.
We have in these collections not just classic cartoons, but truly fine art and great cinema.
