Product Description

Looney Tunes: Golden Collection Volume 3 (DVD)

RESTORED, REMASTERED AND REE-DICULOUS: COMPLETELY UNCUT AND UNCENSORED LOONEY-NESS, INCLUDING SOME HOME VIDEO DEBUTS! You know what you want. More three-day weekends. More ounces in a pound of chocolates. More Looney Tunes. Your wish is our command. Because in this 4-disc set are 60 more of the most looneytic Looney Tunes ever unleashed on rabbit, duck, pig or humanity. Indeed, some have never before been on home video! Disc 1 features the tall, gray and haresome one. Disc 2 lampoons Hollywood. Ham actor Porky Pig rules Disc 3. And Disc 4 has the duck and a cast of crazies. One thing: to watch these, you must be as tall as this sign. Wrong disclaimer. Read the one in the box below. Got the idea? Now have fun. And pass the chocolates. Disclaimer Box Copy: The Looney Tunes Golden Collection Vol. 3 Is Intended for the Adult Collector and May Not Be Suitable for Children.

Like the previous entries in the Looney Tunes Golden Collection series, volume 3 confirms how brilliant the Warner Bros. artists were and how durable their creations have proven. The set includes classics that every cartoon buff will recognize: "Duck! Rabbit! Duck!," "Robin Hood Daffy," "Birds Anonymous." Other selections are less familiar but significant in the development of the studio: "Sinkin' in the Bathtub," the first Looney Tune; "I Haven't Got a Hat," the earliest Warners cartoon viewers can watch for fun, rather than as an historic curiosity; "Porky's Romance," in which director Frank Tashlin introduced rapid cutting to cartoons. Some of the caricature films have aged less gracefully. Younger audiences will recognize the drawn versions of W.C. Fields, the Marx Brothers, Katharine Hepburn, and Charlie Chaplin. But will anyone under the age of 60 remember Edna Mae Oliver, George Arliss, or Ned Sparks?

The producers have once again loaded the discs with supplemental material, including "Point Food Rationing," a unseen short explaining wartime ration books; a BBC documentary on Chuck Jones; and interstitial animated sequences for The Bugs Bunny Show. "Philbert" ranks as the oddest of the extras: an unsold (and leaden) pilot from 1963, featuring live actors and an animated title character. Whoopi Goldberg introduces the set, explaining that some of the ethnic gags would no longer be considered appropriate. But she correctly adds that to remove them would falsify both the history of animation and American popular culture. It all adds up to a set every cartoon fan will want. (Unrated, suitable for all ages: cartoon violence) --Charles Solomon

This third entry in the popular "Looney Tunes Golden Collection" series looks to be the best yet, mostly because of the selection of cartoons. Volume 1 was great, but the selection was too heavily weighted in favor of a relatively short period of time (about 1948 to 1953). Volume 2 had a more diverse selection of cartoons, but had to include more Road Runner and Tweety cartoons than could comfortably be watched in one sitting. Volume 3 has the widest range of Warner Brothers cartoons yet, ranging from the debut of Porky Pig in 1935 to the end of the WB animation studio in 1963. And each disc will present a varied lineup of cartoons that can be watched from beginning to end with pleasure.

Disc 1 is another Bugs Bunny festival, including such classics as the last cartoon in Chuck Jones's Bugs/Daffy/Elmer hunting trilogy, Bugs's great square dance routine in "Hillbilly Hare," and less-familiar masterpieces such as the bizarre "Rebel Rabbit." Disc 2 concentrates on cartoons with Hollywood parodies and celebrity caricatures, ranging from Tex Avery's great gangster-movie spoof "Thugs With Dirty Mugs" to Robert McKimson's "The Mouse that Jack Built," with the cast of the Jack Benny Show voicing themselves. Disc 3, "Porky and the Pigs," mostly concentrates on WB's longest-running star, Porky Pig, featuring a generous helping of hilarious and imaginative black-and-white cartoons by Frank Tashlin and Bob Clampett, as well as later classics like "Robin Hood Daffy." And disc 4, "All Stars Cartoon Party," collects some of the very best cartoons of WB's biggest cartoon stars, including Tweety and Sylvester's Oscar-winning "Birds Anonymous," the debuts of Foghorn Leghorn and Pepe Le Pew, and Daffy trying to dodge the draft in "Draftee Daffy.

I've purchased both of the first two Looney Tunes sets the day they came out, and this one is no exception. Volume 3 is a healthy improvement over the other two in terms of variety of cartoon selection (this set runs the gamut from 1930's "Sinkin' in the Bathtub" all the way to 1959's "The Mouse That Jack Built"), a wide variety of knowledgeable audio commentary providers (Jerry Beck, Leonard Maltin, Eric Goldberg, John K., Eddie Fitzgerald, and Joe Dante, among many others)

I'm one of the people that prefer the older, black and white and early Technicolor Looney Tunes to the later ones. I'm particularly fond of the shorts made during the 1940s. This collection has my favorite Porky Pig cartoon, "Porky's Pig Feat", and plenty of other black-and-white Porkys. Plus, you get other classic Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies shorts like "Falling Hare", "Wakiki Rabbit", "Super Rabbit", "Draftee Daffy", "The Wabbit Who Came to Super", "Duck! Rabbit! Duck!", "The Gruesome Twosome", and a whole lot more.

The selection process for each volume is entirely dependent upon which cartoons have been restored and are available for inclusion. The restorations (which by the way are extraordinary, the washed-out red-tinted broadcast versions of these cartoons are NO substitute for the bright, clear restored versions) take a long time, aren't cheap, and apparently aren't being done in any particular order). So, everyone wondering why their favorites aren't included; they're coming eventually. We just have to wait it out; I personally want to see more of the World War II and mid-1940s Chuck Jones cartoons. But as soon as they're ready, they'll be released.
