Product Description

Looney Tunes Platinum Collection Vol. 2 (Blu-ray)

Look whose back with more gags, more laughs and more signature showcases! Make way for Looney Tunes Platinum Collection Volume 2 with 50 animated theatrical shorts remastered in stellar hi-def Blu-ray(TM) in all their stellar silliness. Disc One's selections focus on the core characters, such as Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Tweety and Sylvester, Pepé Le Pew and Foghorn Leghorn. While Disc Two offers one-shot classics, the complete escapades of Cecil Turtle, the all-purpose adversary Nasty Canasta, bashful little Beaky Buzzard and the hilariously hungry A. Flea. Saving the best for last, Disc Three serves up great fun and insider info with its wild array of bonus programs saluting legendary animators and historical gems. Not to mention a fan-selected favorite that will be sure to satisfy even the most discerning cartoon connoisseur. So grab a chair, a comedy cohort and a carrot 'cause it's always "wabbit" season when this must-own collection comes home!


Favorite Looney Tunes characters Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, and Elmer Fudd offer plenty of laughs in this second volume of Looney Tunes fun, as do a handful of lesser-known, but equally endearing characters like Cecil Turtle, Nasty Canasta, Beaky Buzzard, and A. Flea. Favorite classic episodes include Bugs Bunny's first Academy Award winner "A Wild Hare"; "Back Alley Oproar," in which Sylvester the cat keeps Elmer Fudd awake all night; Foghorn Leghorn's efforts to prove that he's a chicken and not a schnook in "The Foghorn Leghorn"; the live-action animation piece "You Ought to Be in Pictures"; and Speedy Gonzales's attempt to get his inebriated mouse friends home safely in "Tabasco Road." The Nasty Canasta cartoons are fun parodies on the then-popular western genre; Cecil Turtle puts a whole new spin on the fairy tale "The Tortoise and the Hare"; the bashful, lackadaisical Beaky Buzzard wins hearts in a quartet of episodes; and two A. Flea episodes leave you itching for more. The gags, humor, and nonstop action throughout these cartoons are plenty entertaining. But what's really great about this collection is that it's absolutely bursting with special features that explore everything from the animators, producers, and directors, to the history of how Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies first got started, and even Warner Brothers' wartime partnership with the army. Collectors will love the segments about directors Tex Avery, Isadore "Friz" Freleng, and Bob Clampett and how each man changed and shaped the world of cartoon animation in general and Warner Brothers' characters in specific, as well as a featurette about producer Leon Schlesinger and his hands-off, profit-seeking style of leadership. The special collection of wartime Private Snafu shorts--cartoons used in military training during World War II which were not released for public viewing until many years later--offers an interesting look at what was a very practical use of a popular art form. Also included are collections of Avery's and Freleng's cartoons produced after the men left Warner Brothers for MGM, as well as a trio of Mr. Hook cartoons that were written for the navy to encourage the purchase of war bonds. Add in hours of individual cartoon commentaries and plenty of interview footage with animators, directors, producers, and animation historians, and there's plenty to keep everyone--from the nostalgic cartoon fan reliving his or her childhood to cartoon connoisseur and animation historian--intrigued and entertained for days. These cartoons are no longer considered suitable for child viewing due to excessive cartoon violence, sexual innuendo, and racial and ethnic stereotyping. --Tami Horiuchi

Quick reference for "NEW TO DVD" titles, all but "Porky's Hare Hunt" and "The Lion's Busy" have been previously released on Laserdisc and VHS.
Disc 1 "What Makes Daffy Duck", "Birdy and the Beast", "Home Tweet Home" (edited version previously on Saturday Morning Cartoons DVD), "The High and the Flighty".
Disc 2 "Porky's Hare Hunt", "Hare-um Scare-um", "Presto-Chango", "The Lion's Busy", "Strife With Father", "A Horsefly Fleas".
Disc 3 TEX AVERY MGM CARTOONS COME TO BLU-RAY (although in STANDARD DEFINITION)!!!! But sorry DVD fans, they will not be in the DVD version.

Since Hi-Defenition transfers were created when restoring the Looney Tunes cartoons for the Golden Collection DVDs it is easy for WBHV to re-issue these on Blu-ray. This doesn't mean that no further restoration work was done, it only means that most are the same film transfers. It will not be like comparing the old Laserdisc & VHS tapes to the Golden collection DVDs. However they will have better resolution than the DVDs so an improvement will be seen.
The "New to DVD" titles will show the most improvement.

Who's in charge of these ? Is it you, Jerry Beck, as we were lead to believe? And if so, how about fulfilling your promises and opening the vault? And treating them in a manner that befits their classic status?
I love "Looney Tunes" and I love my Blu-ray and I DON'T MIND paying again for these classics to be remastered so I can see them in 1080p. It's awesome! But to take one of the greatest (if not THE greatest) cartoons of all time, "Red Hot Riding Hood" and slap out on the bonus disc in a standard VHS copy is insulting to me and all the other fans out there. Actually NONE of the content on disc three is in HD so it's NOT a Blu-ray! It's a DVD!
Look, I understand the realities of marketing and customer demand; You can't put all Bugs or Daffy on one set because no one (or very few) would buy Porky or Sylvester. You can't put them in chronological order because the average consumer wouldn't buy the black and whites. I don't expect you to remaster all the documentaries or featurettes BUT the cartoons themselves? There's no excuse except a money grab.
The packaging that Volume two comes in doesn't even match the first one! It's completely different.
I honestly don't understand the WB's complete indifference to the Looney Tunes collections and the Looney Tunes collector. It's a rabid fan base. And as proven time and again there is quite a market for deluxe sets. Why not issue deluxe collector's versions? the Complete Tex Avery!! The Complete Chuck Jones!! The Complete One Shots and Minis! Hell, Just do The Warner Bros and the complete MGM! To big? break 'em down! Complete Looney Tunes 1930-1942, Complete Merrie Melodies 1931-1942.....
All cartoons ReMastered??In 1080p? You'd make a fortune and the fans would be happy.
Unlike how they feel now.

I ordered this item because of the Tex Avery MGM cartoons included in it. Wow! "Red Hot Riding Hood," "Swingshift Cinderella" et al on Blu-ray! Sharp, brilliant high definition! Imagine my disappointment when the product arrived, I loaded up the disc containing said MGM Avery treasures, and it looked like I was watching them on VHS. Thanks for making it clear, Product Information, that these Avery cartoons are in "standard definition" (though they look even worse, with those intermittent comb-like parallel black lines that appear occasionally in the image in certain digital videos). My excitement face-planted to disappointment just like that.

Caveat emptor... suckers!

Not only this will be the first time the post-1935 black and white Looney Tunes will be on Blu Ray but also 10 shorts will be new-to-DVD all remastard on this release:

with its original opening titles restored - **
with its original opening ringss restored - ***

*What Makes Daffy Duck? (1948, Art Davis) Hilarious
*Birdy and the Beast (1944, Bob Clampett)
*Home, Tweet Home (1950, Friz Freleng)** Funny
*The High and the Flighty (1955, Robert McKimson)
*Porky's Hare Hunt (1938, Ben Hardaway) My favorite
*Hare-um Scare-um (1939, Ben Hardaway and Cal Dalton) This version will have its original ending remastard back to the cartoon.
*Prest-O Change-O (1939, Chuck Jones) My personal favorite
*The Lion's Busy (1950, Friz Freleng)** Hilarious
*Strife with Father (1950, Robert McKimson)** Funny
*A Horsefly Fleas (1947, Robert McKimson)

Note: the previous released cartoon "Canned Feud" is remastard with its original opening ringss unlike LTGC Vol. 1 which had the Blue Ribbon reissue version.

And 11 Tex Avery directed MGM shorts will also be on this release, but only on Blu Ray and they're not remastard unfortunately:
*Blitz Wolf (1942)
*Red Hot Riding Hood (1943)
*Screwball Squirrel (1944)
*Swing Shift Cinderella (1945)
*King-Size Canary (1947) Funny
*Bad Luck Blackie (1949)
*Señor Droopy (1949)
*Wags to Riches (1949)
*Symphony in Slang (1951) Hilarious
*Magical Maestro (1952) Hilarious
*Rock-a-Bye Bear (1952) My favorite

I only recommend this for those new-to-DVD and Blu Ray cartoona. And it's only for those who want to have the previous release shorts from the Golden Collections and Super Stars on Blu Ray in HD instead.
