Don Hahn, Producer - The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast
"Andrew Farago had captured lightning in a bottle with this amazing tribute to the Looney Tunes legacy."
Bill Morrison, Creative Director, Bongo Entertainment, Former Futurama Art Director
"I've been waiting for a book of this quality on the Warner Bros. animation studio. I own previously published books about the studio, but I can tell this is going to be the one I refer to most often from now on."
Dan Piraro, creator of Bizarro
"For fans of Looney Tunes, this book is the bible; jam-packed with miracles and eternal salvation." --
Hans Teensma, Animate & Impress
"What a joyful blast through my youthful past! Each character spoke to me exactly the way I knew them. … They're alive I tell you, alive! … I'm going right upstairs now and try again to order something out of the Acme catalog—there must be an 800 number there somewhere. You've got a treasury there. And we must place one in a time capsule or send it into space. The universe has to know about it."

I wouldn't recommend dropping a whole lot of money on this book, but there are plenty of copies going for very reasonable prices. I paid less than five dollars for mine, and if you find it anywhere in that range, it's an absolute steal! This isn't the best of the "vault" books I've checked out, but it's a lot of fun, and definitely worth owning.
The author Andrew Farago, curator of the Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco, has done a great job in putting this treasury together.
The book is filled with art, animation stills, and funny autobiographies written by the Looney Tunes characters themselves. You can read in their own words about their rise to fame, the jealousy among cartoon co-characters, and other hilarious jokes. I still get a chuckle out of seeing Tweety in Sylvester's sandwich, knowing seconds later Tweety would somehow escape.
Also included are some mementos like postcards, sticker book, Porky Pig mini-comic, a Tasmanian Devil mask and other cool stuff.
This book is a blast from the past. Recommended for fans of classic animation.
