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]]>

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.
(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.
