BIRDS OF A FEATHER GOTTA LAUGH TOGETHER: 15 Remastered, 14 Never-Before-On-DVD Vault Classics! "You're in luck, fans – I say you're in luck – luckier even than when I drew a fifth ace!" Foghorn Leghorn, that ever-courtly barnyard banterer, has something to crow about when these 15 remastered and 14 never-before-on-DVD cartoons. The rooster's roster includes 9 Foghorn Leghorn shorts ranging from Foggy vs. Doggy (All Fowled Up) to educatin' Egghead Jr. (Little Boy Boo) to hepcat beatnik jive (Banty Raids). Six more treasures from the vault keep the good times rolling, including befuddled Elmer Fudd's celebration of his bwave, hewoic dog (A Mutt in a Rutt) and Goofy Gopher's dog-daze antics (Gopher Broke). Don't wait – gopher it. That's almost a joke, son!]]>

C'mon Warner! What we want to see is good quality original format transfers, not deceptively advertised, and presented at a reasonable price for something a half-century or so old that you keep flogging for all it is worth. Why not stop treating us like idiots and put out the 'Ultimate Foghorn Leghorn Collection' - 28 classic cartoons, attractively priced and presented! Or is that simply too hard for you? Looking at all the grumbling from fans about previous collections, one would think you might have learned a few more lessons by now. It seems you just don't care.
I don't know if there's a fear of racism, or classism, or what the objections are to the original cartoons, but I surely do wish that WB would realize that their target audience are grownups and we don't need them to censor stuff for our sensitive little minds.
Not only do they not include an entire disc of Foghorn toons, the ones they select are from the mid to late 50's and early 60s when the formula was already 10-15 years old (first Foggy short was in 1946). His first three cartoons were released on the Golden Collections and so far NONE of the rest of them from 1949-1953 have been included in any DVD collection. These are 9 of the most recognizable, iconic Foghorn Leghorn cartoons ever made and Warner is still sitting on them.
Most of the selections on this disc are just pale reflections of the earlier cartoons. Except for 'Little Boy Boo' there's nothing on this disc to compare to something like 'Fractured Leghorn' where Foghorn is at his finest.
It's an obvious ploy by Warner to burn off the less desirable selections so they can dole out the classics a little bit at a time. Why else would they include the sub-par 'Weasel While You Work' from '58 instead of the first, much funnier, Weasel toon 'Plop Goes the Weasel' from '53? Just compare them online along with the other true essentials like 'Fractured Leghorn' or 'Leghorn Blows at Midnight' and you'll see the difference both in animation, dialogue and execution.
For that matter, compare 'Little Boy Boo' (1954), the oldest toon on this collection, with 'Banty Raids' (1963). A collection like this would be great for completists AFTER the best cartoons had been released, but not before.Read more ›
Looney Tunes Super Stars: Foghorn Leghorn & Friends contains 15 favorites and some overlooked delights from the Looney Tunes gang, but Foghorn Leghorn isn't in all of them. Still, there is a lot of hilarious greats that still bring in a lot of fun and a classic laughter that hasn't been heard in awhile. Still there are a few of Foghorn's classics like Weasel While You Work, the classic Little Boy Boo, where he squares off and tries to prove he can be a good role model to Egghead Jr., yet it falls apart in the process, and Banty Raids where a "hen-pecked" rooster whose in to 60's music, tries to fool Foghorn to get into the farm, by pretending he is a baby, to get his hands on female chickadees.Read more ›

Great quality cartoons.
Enjoyed the extras.
I love the fact that there is a warning at the beginning (that can't be avoided) about how these were made in a different time and that the language or ideas may not be suitable... Read morePublished 2 months ago by Thud
