Product Description

Looney Tunes Super Stars Bugs Bunny Hare Extraordinaire

EARS TO YOU, BUGS! 15 Never-Before-On-DVD Vault Classics! Hare they are – the smart aleck rabbit's cartons you've probably never seen, because they've never ever been on DVD. Nothing but the 24-carrot good stuff, too: 15 shorts from the era when hunkered-down animation geniuses at good ol' Termite Terrace scribbled and drew with unabated Looneytic glee. Join the fun as the rascally one's pursuit of carrots and laughs puts him on the menu (Bedevilled Rabbit), on the make (Hare Trimmed), on deck (Mutiny on the Bunny), on the lam (Foxy by Proxy) and on 11 more hare-brained adventures. There are no odds or oddballs this funny bunny can't overcome. Exactly what you'd expect from a super star.

None of the 15 cartoons in Hare Extraordinaire have been released on DVD before. The best film in the collection is Friz Freleng's "Hare Trimmed" (1953), with its brilliant animation of Bugs disguised as Granny, daintily lifting his skirts as he prances about on his outsize rabbit feet. "Mutiny on the Bunny" (1950), one of several shorts Freleng made with Yosemite Sam as a pirate, offers plenty of laughs, as do "Napoleon Bunny-Part" (1956) and "Bedeviled Rabbit" (1957). "Lumber Jack-Rabbit" (1955) was the only Warner cartoon made in 3-D as part of the mid-50's craze, but it's not a distinguished film. Many of these cartoons rank as B- and C-level entries in the Warner Bros. canon. Robert McKimson's "Bushy Hair" (1950) is essentially a remake of his "Gorilla My Dreams" (1948)--as is Freleng's "Apes of Wrath" (1959). In the very late McKimson cartoons "The Million Hare" (1963) and "False Hare" (1964, the last theatrical Bugs short), the energy has gone out of the animation, the direction, and even Mel Blanc's vocal performances. In contrast to the six Looney Tunes Golden Collections, Hare Extraordinaire feels sloppily produced. Several of the films have been ineptly cropped to give the impression they were made for a widescreen format: when Bugs dresses up as Josephine in "Napoleon Bunny-Part," most of his bonnet is cut off. Areas of color shimmer and boil in "Lumber Jack-Rabbit." Warner cartoon fans will want Hare Extraordinaire to complete their collections, but it's a disappointing follow-up to the exemplary Golden sets. (Unrated, suitable for all ages: cartoon violence) --Charles Solomon

Warner has done something here that they never did with the Golden Collection DVDs, they CROPPED the picture of the 1954+ cartoons to make them look widescreen. The animators at Warner Brothers NEVER animated for wide screen until the 1980 revival. There are jokes missing because they are in the upper or lower portions of the picture which are not there now. Maybe these were shown at the theaters this way, but I want to see them the way the animators intended us to see them.

I have already contacted the powers that be at Warner Home Video to request a re-call and issue a proper un-cropped DVD of these classic cartoons.

This would have NEVER happened in the Golden Collection sets. Someone who does not know better must be in charge now!

This will be the LAST Looney Tunes DVD that I buy if this is going to be the new standard. Keep the old un-cropped Laserdiscs, a TRAVESTY has been committed here!

1-800-553-6937 is the Warner Home Video customer service number.

The only reason that I will not be buying "Bugs Bunny: Hare Extraordinaire," and the only reason for my 1-star rating, is because someone at Warner Bros decided to use matting to cover up the tops and bottoms of most of the cartoons on this DVD.

For example, in the original version of "Napoleon Bunny-Part," Bugs Bunny walks under a doorway with a curved sign on top which says "Le Grande Ball Room." But on this DVD, the only part of the sign that can be seen is "Le Gra."

Warner Bros claims that their reason for doing this is because that's what the artists originally intended. I very much doubt this claim. Why would they draw a sign if they never intended for anyone to be able to read it? Furthermore, none of the cartoons on the six Looney Tunes Golden Collections are matted, and no one ever complained about the fact that those cartoons weren't matted.

I bought all six Golden Collections. But I will not be buying "Hare Extraordinaire."

When I learned about the cropping issue, I planned to stay away from this set, as well as the Daffy Duck Frustrated Fowl set. But because my son was expecting to see them, I bought them, anyway. We watched a bunch of them Saturday and all I can say is that the cropped picture on some of the cartoons looks lousy. It's ridiculous.

It's so ridiculous that, on some of the cartoons, you can't even see all of the information of the credits. And why Warner Bros. decided to crop "Lumber Jack-Rabbit" is beyond me. This cartoon obviously was not designed for a widescreen picture. For the opening credits, Warner had to use the 4:3 format to ensure all of the credit information was there. When the cartoon started, however, it transformed to widescreen and you could tell there was a lot of information missing from the picture.

Most of the widescreen cartoons in both sets are a mess. Tops of heads are missing, snippets of animation are gone, etc.

I'm extremely disappointed with this set. I know there are many people out there who will say this doesn't matter, but to some people it matters greatly. There was NO REASON to do this. NONE.

I will not buy any future Looney Tunes releases if this is how these cartoons are going to be treated. If somebody wants to watch these cartoons in widescreen, they could easily set their televisions to stretch-o-matic format or zoom in the picture. The way it is now, if somebody wants to see the full animated image, no such choice is available.

Whoever was behind the decision to do this is an absolute maroon. Yosemite Sam and Elmer Fudd aren't even that stupid.

Somebody removed the top & bottom of the picture. This makes me sad, because I like the top & bottom of the picture. I am returning this defective product for a refund. I will not purchase future Looney Tunes products if they are topless and/or bottomless.

As said before most of the cartoons of this set are cropped and tampered with. The top and bottom of the shorts have been cut to adapt them to widescreen format. This makes them unwatchable as bits of the action and animation are missing, the image looks cropped and you keep concentrating on the missing parts. VERY UNCOMFORTABLE viewing. Plus I must say the image restauration doesn't look as pristine as the Golden collection series.

What is more unsettling is that Warner Bros keeps doing this all over again, tampering with content (censorship, cropping...) showing no respect at all for intellectual property but most of all no respect whatsoever for the customer. It is disgusting.

Sadly I can't recommend the buying of this product and its sister : the Daffy Duck superstar. The viewing is really uncomfortable, and the fan and collector is not respected by Warner. The product is not worth the money it cost.
