Looney Tunes The Chuck Jones Collection Mouse Chronicles (Blu-ray)

From animation legend Chuck Jones comes the big cheese of mouse collections! Enjoy 19 remastered animated shorts featuring some mischievous mice and their daring adventures! Introducing Sniffles. He's cute, curious and got a heckuva cold! In Naughty But Mice, audiences came to know Sniffles as a sweet, wide-eyed simpleton with a talent for getting himself into trouble. But over the years, Jones had evolved Sniffles into an overly talkative but endearing nuisance. A trouble-loving twosome with a passion for pranks, Chuck Jones let loose the mice, Hubie and Bertie, in the short The Aristo-Cat. A departure from his previous cute and naivé characters, Hubie and Bertie solidified a new direction for Jones. The change paid off with the Oscar®-nominated Mouse Wreckers*, which finds Hubie and Bertie tormenting their favorite nemesis Claude Cat with rapid-fire humor and sight gags galore. So steal a snack and scurry back to your hideout for some laughs and mouse-chief with the latest Chuck Jones Collection! * Mouse Wreckers – Short Subject (Cartoon) 1949

Both cartoons are good since they were made in the golden age of cartoons. Sniffles cartoons are cute and charming, even though he's a Looney Tunes character but his cartoons are mostly a resemblance of Disney cartoons. While Hubie and Bertie are really the Lonney Tunes that act looney, their cartoons are funny and hilarious. This is only for those who want both cartoons in a complete set.

Update: Original opening titles found on some cartoons recently that will appear on this release all remastard back to the cartoons - *

Here how the content will be on both discs (all are directed by Chuck Jones):
Disc 1: Sniffles the Mouse
Naughty but Mice (1939)
Little Brother Rat (1939)*
Sniffles and the Bookworm (1939) My personal favorite
Sniffles Takes a Trip (1940, previously seen as a bonus cartoon on Golden Collection Vol. 6) Note: it's completely remastard unlike its previous release which look ugly.
The Egg Collector (1940)
Bedtime for Sniffles (1940) kind of boring
Sniffles Bells the Cat (1941)
Toy Trouble (1941)
The Brave Little Bat (1941) pretty good
The Unbearable Bear (1943) kind of funny
Lost and Foundling (1944)
Hush My Mouse (1946)* very funny

Disc 2: Hubie & Bertie
The Aristo-Cat (1943, previously seen on Golden Collection Vol. 4)
Trap Happy Porky (1945)* Funny
Roughly Squeaking (1946) My personal favorite
House Hunting Mice (1947) Good
Mouse Wreckers (1949, previously seen on Golden Collection Vol. 2) great humor
The Hypo-Chondri Cat (1950, previously seen on Golden Collection Vol.

I've been a long time fan of WB toons. With the advent of the blu ray disc, I was ever hopeful that WB would do a really nice job on the "restoration" of these cartoons.

While the first disc's cartoons look very impressive, WB continues to overcrop the tops and bottoms of the picture in order to present a wider picture on your widescreen television. As a result, many gags and facial features that occur on the extreme top and bottom of the image are unable to be seen.

Furthermore, on more than half of these cartoons, the original title sequences are missing...being replaced by the re-release openings that are called "Blue Ribbon" titles (since they show a blue ribbon after the WB logo). This is a real shame as the original title sequences include all the production credits and music original to each cartoon.

My biggest beef with this two disc set is that the bonus cartoons presented on disc two are all presented in 480p...low definition. And while it is apparent that no attempt was made to restore any of the bonus cartoons, the fact that they were simply pulled from old masters to help fill out this set is not cool, especially for those of us who really love these cartoons. So basically you are getting one and a half discs of high definition cartoons and eight low definition cartoons.

I hope WB steps it up a little bit as far as quality for the future incarnations of these character specific cartoon sets.

Always been a big fan of the Chuck Jones Hubie and Bertie cartoons, which are seldom seen anywhere. The two mice are really unique creations, always scampering on the periphery of late 40s/early 50s Warner Bros. animation. I'm sure he had real fondness for them, although their output never challenged the big honchos at the studio, Bugs, Daffy or the Road Runner. But the films of these little rodent scamps are truly funny... something you can't always say about the output of the others. That's because there were only a handful of the H&Bs and a seemingly million of those other star vehicles. So, having all of them in a blu ray disc is a real treat. But, they also featured a lot of other Jones mouse cartoons, including all of the Sniffles collection and a smattering of others. There are one each of the Jack Benny imitations and Honeymooner parodies. I seem to remember others in both of those series, but they don't appear. Were they not all Chuck Jones? Odd they'd not include them. But what's here is beautifully presented

I'm looking forward to this set for one reason
(six, actually) and that is we finally get all
six Hubie & Bertie cartoons in one set. Four
of these have been previously released on other
sets, but it will be nice to finally get 'House
Hunting Mice' and 'Roughly Squeaking'. Hubie &
Bertie were two of my most favorite Chuck Jones
creations, though they were clearly inspired by
the repartee of Leo Gorcey and Huntz Hall of the
Dead End Kids / Bowery Boys pictures. Most of
the Sniffles cartoons (included here) suffered
from an overdose of Disney-inspired cuteness -
except for the final two, when they began to
pattern the character on the 'inquisitive kid'
from the old Fibber McGee & Molly radio show.
("Whatcha doin', mister? Huh? What's yer name?")
Sniffles is very funny in these indeed. I'm sure
one or titles on the extra disc will make the
whole thing a bit more worthwhile.
