Customer Review

on January 21, 2013
5 stars for the episodes, 1 star for how they are presented on this DVD.

Yes, I guess we are lucky to have them on DVD at all. Our old VHS tapes won't hold out much longer (if they aren't unplayable already).

Warner's lack-luster approach to the menus borders on insulting. Any 10-year-old with a decent DVD authoring program on his computer could do better. At least with vols. 1 & 2 we got stills behind the menu choices.

I can live with the menus, but for me, the true insult is in the audio. All the dialogue, music, and sound effects come solely from the center channel. Separation between the left, right, and center channels was evident in the numerous broadcasts on numerous networks--why not on this DVD? Sure, video is paramount (and in this set, it's decent), but I love a good soundtrack, and the music and sound editing deserve better.

Between the menus and sound, I thought I may have received some sort of pre-production test copy. Perhaps it was rushed since Warner Home Video wasn't going to include the "Elephant Issues" episode and then decided to at the last minute, supposedly due to fan requests.

This set does contain some of best episodes of TTA and you can definitely see the direction the creative staff was heading in as they moved towards Animaniacs. So, yeah, fans are going to want it. But the approach that companies like Warner and Disney take regarding their animated products sorely needs to improve.
