5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome classic!, April 3, 2009
This review is from: Looney Tunes: Golden Collection Vol. 4 (DVD)
Growing up on Looney toons as a child, I remember cartoons, the old fashioned ones we used to watch on Sat morning in the 70's. They were just pure hysterical gut-busting entertainment, and Bugs Bunny poked fun at everyone. He teaches us to laugh at ourselves, our differences and our alikenesses. It is sad they view him as "non-PC" these days (note the disclaimer at the beginning of the DVD's). But, everyone was fair game to him. And, I don't think being humorous is wrong, but it is a product of its time, and we cannot deny it happened. When "racial or ethnic" references are made, the humor shows that the one making the reference is just as ridiculous as the one being referred to. So, it was social commentary.

These days, the kids are watching mind numbing, PC to the point of exclusion, educational cartoons at every turn. The fail to show humor, they fail to show it is ok to laugh at ourselves and to embrace our differences that make us who we are. They fail to show just plain old humor, and human nature. And, when a child goes out into the world, they do not know how to handle other people's differences when they encounter those situations. Bugs Bunny makes it all good.

My husband and I were commenting on this one day. How the cartoons are not the same as they used to be. We discovered that both of our favorite episode was the one with Yosemite Sam and his "stupid" dragon. We went on a search of this episode which brought us to this purchase. We now have two Looney Tunes anthologies. And, our kids love them, it is a great family time to share. There are historical and literary references that I also feel teach them. But, most of all it is the healing laughter we all enjoy. Plus, we have to explain to our children the meaning behind some of those references, and how society has come to deal with it.

We love this Collection, and will undoubtedly be back for more.
