However, who else noticed how lazy they were with this DVD? It looks like a thirteen-year-old burnt it on his laptop. The menus are obviously templates and the themes have nothing to do with 'Tiny Toons' or Warner Bros. at all (except for the main menu). I expected the movie quality to be bad since it was converted from tape just like the episodes. But damn, it looks worse than it did on VHS. Hopefully no one who buys this will be watching it on a big screen. Your eyes may bleed.
Regardless, I'm glad it's out on DVD. I just wish they would have spent a little more time cleaning it up. 90's TV animation gets no respect in regards to video quality.
UPDATING to add that I have decided to return this. Only adults handle disks at our house (very carefully may I add) and somehow this disk has started to freeze. It froze about 24 minutes into the movie and I had to reset the player. Wanted to skip to where we left off and I realized there are no Chapter Selections on the main menu. In fact, I had to play the film and "fast forward" (yes, on a DVD!!!) to the part we left off on. I have no doubts this is a direct-from-VHS transfer!
I plan on purchasing this again, either when a) it is rereleased remastered OR b) the price drops below $5. No way is this worth more than that.
The quality sucks. If you put it into a computer and check the size it is only 3.7 GB, not even an entire 8 GB DVD, so they went the cheap rout and used a single layered DVD. You can tell this when you play it because it is an interlaced DVD, google interlaced DVD for more info. Basically this is for playing on OLD TVs not the current HDTV ones. It also looks like they used an old VHS for the rip instead of using original sources or even a LaserDisc, those huge record sized DVD discs, they had a much higher quality than VHS and didn't degrade over time like VHS does. If they ripped from one of those it would look much better. They also didn't take much time on creating menus, when you go to watch trailers and switch languages it is a very boring plain blue menu with no sound. I could have done a better job with free software on the menus. Also, the discs were made in Mexico, they couldn't even splurge enough to have the made in the US.
I'm glad it is on DVD now but for something I have been waiting this long for I'm upset that it is such low quality. I can up the quality a little by ripping it and running a decomb filter to get rid of the interlace but why the heck couldn't they have just put out a higher quality product? I also know a few people with LaserDisc players, I might just buy the LaserDisc of this and have them rip it for me, burn it to DVD and put it in this case. The case is nice and looks good with my other DVDs and Blurays.
Produced by legendary film director Steven Spielberg and helmed by some of the best animators, musicians and voice actors ever (both in the U.S. and overseas), "Tiny Toons" took the cliche of turning classic cartoon characters into younger versions of themselves and turned it on its ear. Rather than simply kiddie-fying the Looney Tunes, "Tiny Toons" featured a cast of wacky characters who were their own entities. They were admirers and students rather than younger versions or direct offspring of Bugs Bunny and friends.
Arguably, this movie was the Tiny Toons' finest hour, showcasing their adventures on summer vacation away from their Looney professors at Acme Looniversity. Plucky Duck and Hamton Pig endure a road-trip from Hell with Hamton's family. Animal-torturing Elmyra goes to a drive-through safari zoo in search of a "new kitty", skinning a leopard and torturing a lion, panther and jaguar in the process. Fifi the skunk gets a date with movie star "Johnny Pew" and finds out he's a jerk. Shirley the Loon decides to finally accept Fowlmouth the rooster's invitation to a date, and it's a hilarious disaster. Buster and Babs Bunny get into a squirt gun fight that ends in Babs opening a floodgate and sweeping them down a river into a world full of hillbilly possums and hungry alligators.
All of these subplots manage to intertwine, all backed by a full musical orchestra, fluid animation produced in both the U.S. and Japan.Read more ›
