Looney Tunes: Golden Collection Vol. 4
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
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 rabbits, pigs, mice or cats. Indeed, some have never before been on home video! Disc 1 features the tall, gray and haresome one. Disc 2 is all pig. Disc 3 is all about Speedy. And Disc 4 is the cats meow. 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]]>
Not all of these films have aged as gracefully. Younger viewers will probably not catch the references to Charlie McCarthy, Bill Robinson, and other old film and radio stars. The Speedy Gonzalez cartoons feature ethnic humor that seems embarrassing today; it's also crashingly unfunny. Each disc offers a disclaimer about stereotypes, noting, "they were wrong then and are wrong today."
The discs are loaded with extras that range from a partial set of storyboards for "Sahara Hare" to three of the "Private Snafu" shorts, which were made for the "Army-Navy Screen Magazine" during WW II. The oddest extra is the documentary Bugs Bunny Superstar, which infuriated many of the Warner Bros. artists when it was released in 1977. Much of its information should be taken with a grain of salt. (Unrated, suitable for ages 6 and older: cartoon violence, some ethnic stereotypes, mild risqué humor, alcohol & tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

Having said that, I would prefer that they stop giving each disc a single theme. I love these classic cartoons, but even I will have trouble sitting through 15 Speedy Gonzales cartoons in a row. Wouldn't it be more fun for viewers to mix it up a little? Or better yet, take a cue from the Columbia House Video Library, and give each famous cartoon director his own disc.
OK, so I'm guilty of nit-picking, too. Vol. 4 is another treasure trove for classic animation fans, with incredible bonus materials. So come one, Looney Tunes fans! Grab The Golden Collection Vol. 4 so we can assure that "That's NOT all, folks!"
The Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 4, continues to reflect on the classic era of Warner's greatest animated classics. The DVD set features 60 delightful shorts that are still fun and entertaining. Disc 1, like the previous DVD editions of the golden collection is all about Bugs Bunny himself. This editon features so many great hare-brained classics that some of them even haven't been on home video before. There are just a lot of delightful classics from the only Bugs Oscar-winning short Knighty Knight Bugs, and other middle aged set cartoons like Chuck Jones' classic Knight-Mare Hare which was set as a parody of Mark Twain's A Conneticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, and Rabbit Hood. There are also other great gems from To Hare Is Human, Rabbit Romeo, and The Grey Hounded Hare where Bugs falls for a robotic rabbit at a greyhound dog race.
Disc 2: Highlights the era of legendary unsung hero Frank Tashlin, or as some of the classic cartoon historians called him, Tish Tash.Read more ›
