Format: Blu-ray
Oh Warner Bros, why are these classic cartoons only being sold in the United States? In a similar fashion to last years Tom and Jerry Golden Collection, animation has been revived once more with the introduction of the Looney Tunes cartoons in high definition - but keep in mind that you'll need to order these products from Amazon U.S.

Instead of following the chronological format of the Tom and Jerry Golden Collection, W.B have opted to pick-n-mix some fan favourites, and this is likely a wise choice when you consider just how many Looney Tunes cartoons were produced in a relatively short time (compared to the Disney studio at least). It should also be remembered that the quality of production and sense of characterisation really hit the ground running in the 1950's, and peaked towards the end of the decade. Towards the end of the 1960's, the abstraction of the artwork and story lines was becoming almost more important than the critical entertainment factor, which inevitably led to a decline in the quality of the shorts.

Luckily, the cartoons in this set compromise over a twenty-year period between the 1940's and early 60's, so you're getting some real gems. The epitome of the animated character becoming more than just a 'flat' personality is 'Duck Amuck', perhaps one of the greatest cartoons ever made. Its genius is that Jones proved how one such on-screen personality - Daffy Duck - could generate the same humour and empathy even though he was breaking the forth wall and being manipulated by an 'artist' on the drafting paper, who learn of their real identity at the end...

Indeed, the 1950's also saw not just a shift in humour, but that of an acceptance to modernise the background artwork whilst also making it more efficient to paint.

Although many of the episodes and the special features are already available in the Golden Collection series, the thought of seeing the cartoons in Blu-ray is really exciting!

Spectacular collection with many essentials 16 July 2012
By Pope Elvis The First - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
You wouldn't buy or download a CD without knowing what was on it, would you? So why would you buy this DVD collection without knowing its contents?
So first off, its contents. Why Amazon doesn't list this info is beyond me. This is a collection of 50 vintage Warner Brothers cartoons, many of which are classics.
Disc 1
Hare Tonic
Baseball Bugs
Buccaneer Bunny
The Old Grey Hare
Rabbit Hood
8 Ball Bunny
Rabbit of Seville
What's Opera Doc?
The Great Piggy Bank Robbery
A Pest in the House
The Scarlet Pumpernickel
Duck Amuck
Robin Hood Daffy
Baby Bottleneck
Kitty Kornered
Scaredy Cat
Porky Chops
Old Glory
A Tale of Two Kitties
Tweetie Pie
Fast and Furry-ous
Beep, Beep
Lovelorn Leghorn
For Scent-imental Reasons
Speedy Gonzales
Disc 2
One Froggy Evening
Three Little Bops
I Love to Singa
Katnip Kollege
The Dover Boys at Pimento University
Chow Hound
Haredevil Hare
The Hasty Hare
Duck Dodgers in the 24 1/2th Century
Hare-Way to the Stars
Mad as a Mars Hare
Devil May Hare
Bedevilled Rabbit
Ducking the Devil
Bill of Hare
Dr. Devil and Mr. Hare
Bewitched Bunny
Broom-Stick Bunny
A Witch's Tangled Hare
A-Haunting We Will Go
Feed the Kitty
Kiss Me Kat
Feline Frame-up
From A to Z-Z-Z-Z
Boyhood Daze

All of your favorite characters are here (Bugs, Marvin, Foghorn, Taz, Wile E. Coyote, Daffy, and so on), and some of the greatest American cartoons ever (Duck Amuck, What's Opera Doc) are here. Of course, when a studio has a library as extensive as Warner Brothers', it seems likely that no single collection is likely to contain all of the classics. Missing from this collection are some unforgettable cartoons like Rabbit Seasoning, Duck! Rabbit, Duck! and A Sheep in the Deep, but all-in all this is an amazing collection of great old cartoons. They're remastered beautifully and are a sight to behold.
If you want your kids to grow up with an appreciation of Chuck Jones and Mel Blanc (that's why I bought this), then you can't do better than this amazing collection.

Hi-def masters for the Golden Collections get a Hi-def Blu-ray release. Disc 3 is Standard Definition. 26 July 2011
By Paul J. Mular - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
***** - the films
***** - the discs

This review may seem contradictory, this is a five-star set of cartoons presented in a five-star Blu-ray release, and I have to rate this set on those merits. But there are some things not five-star for those of us who have been collecting the Golden Collections on DVD.

O.K, , you are probably saying "These Looney Tunes Blu-ray titles seem familiar", that is because just about all of them have been released on the DVD Golden, Oscar, & Superstars Collections. Why? Because when they were restored for those Collections they were restored in Hi-Definition 1080p, so Warner had an easy Blu-ray release here with out spending much money for new film transfers.

This means that unlike the "Wow" effect we got when we first saw the Golden Collection DVDs after watching washed out Laserdiscs & VHS tapes, this time we will see the same film transfers with improved restoration in 1080p resolution. I have seen the Blu-ray presentations of "Rabbit Hood" and "I Love to Singa" and they look nice, but you will need a rather large HD-TV to notice any kind of improvement over the Golden Collection DVDs. "I Love to Singa" still looks grainy & has negative dust just like the Golden Collection DVDs.

One BIG improvement is with BABY BOTTLENECK, the original film transfer has undergone further restoration work to reduce the grain seen in the older DVD. There is still grain, but it is a big improvement.

Warner did spend some money to make a few new Hi-Def transfers for titles not previously on DVD:

Disc #1
Lovelorn Leghorn - Foghorn Leghorn - only available previously on VHS

Disc #2
Hasty Hare - Bugs Bunny & Marvin Martian - previously available on the Laserdisc "Looney Tunes After Dark"
Hare-way To The Stars - Bugs Bunny & Marvin Martian - previously available on the Laserdisc "Looney Tunes After Dark"
Bill of Hare - Bugs Bunny & Tasmanian Devil - previously available on the Laserdisc "Stars of Space Jam"
A Witches Tangled Hare - Bugs Bunny & Witch Hazel - only available previously on VHS.
Feline Frame-up - previously available on the Laserdisc "Assorted Nuts"

Disc #3 (Presented in STANDARD DEFINITION unless noted)
Marvin Martian in the 3rd Dimension (1996) - non-anamorphic letterboxed small screen presentation.
Father of the Bird - Foghorn Leghorn (1997)
Museum Scream - Tweety & Sylvester (2003) - High Defenition, anamorphic widescreen
And some Chuck Jones productions:
Hell Bent for Election (1944)
Hitch In time (1955) - High defenition
The Door (with Bill Cosby 1968)

It is puzzling, and disappointing that disc #3 is mostly in STANDARD DEFINITION Blu-ray, with noticeable scan lines. It is obviously hobbled together quickly to give this set a third disc. I saw only three Hi-Definition cartoons on disc #3: "A Hitch In Time" (1955), "90 Day Wondering" (1955) and in anamorphic widescreen "Museum Scream" (2003). "Superior Duck" also looks good like it might be in Hi-Definition but it clocks in with the other standard definition cartoons. "Marvin Martian in the 3rd Dimension" (1996) is a real disappointment in standard definition, it is letterboxed and not anamorphic, the picture is really shrunk down. I was also looking forward to seeing "The Dot and The Line" as well as "The Bear That Wasn't" in Hi-definition, but that was not to be here. Maybe if a Chuck Jones MGM Cartoon set comes out in Blu-ray we may see true Di-Definition presentations of those cartoons then.

So if you have all of the DVD Golden Collections, The Oscar Winners & Nominees collection, and the Superstars Collections, you will likely only be buying this for the 6 newly restored cartoons on discs 1 & 2.
I guess a direct re-release of the Golden Collections on Blu-ray would have sold less than a Blu-ray collection featuring 6 new titles not previously on DVD.

Notice that there are only 50 classic cartoons here, the old Golden Collection DVDs had 60 cartoons per set. So it will take more Blu-ray sets to cover the same quantity of cartoons as the old DVD sets.

** If you are trying to decide between the expensive "Ultimate Collector's Edition" and the regular edition, there is really nothing "Ultimate" about the "Ultimate Edition". The Ultimate edition adds a Bugs Bunny shot glass (yes you heard me Bugs Bunny is promoting alcoholic drinking) and a certificate of authenticity (like we are worried about bootleg Blu-rays), a tin with a picture on it and a matted lithograph. I think reproductions of the cartoon lobby cards that appear shrunken in the booklet would have been a better deal.
Save your money & get the basic version, the discs are the same.**

At least something is being released for the animation fans again by Warner Home Video. If you can afford it, lets support this Hi-Def project and keep some new titles coming out.

***UPDATE ABOUT THE DVDS***
The Looney Tunes Platinum Collection Volume 1 release was originally a Blu-ray ONLY release, and this review pertains to the Blu-Ray discs only.
Due to popular request, Warner Home Video later released a standard DVD 2-disc version which did not include the bonus disc #3.
Since each cartoon runs roughly 7 to 8 minutes, that means one disc with 25 cartoons on it runs about 3 hours and 8 minutes which is a maximum for a dual layer DVD before increasing compression artifacting. While I do not have the standard DVDs to tell you if they include the bonus material on the Blu-ray discs #1 & 2, consider that there may not have been room on the discs to include them.

Fans of Marvin the Martian or Taz? This set has got you covered! 23 Nov. 2011
By K. Thompson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
The main draw for me to purchase this set was that it included the complete collection of Marvin the Martian and Taz cartoons, as I already have the 6 Golden Collections and all the Superstars discs. Well after getting it and watching some of the cartoons my mind was blown as to how well the cartoons look on a 1080p set. The colors pop as if they were produced just yesterday. Although in some of the cartoons scratches and dust are more noticeable (one has to remember that these cartoons were made around 60-70 years ago), but it does not detract from the overall experience.

Also included in the collector's set is a certificate of authenticity,a framed lithograph titled "The Looney Tunes March," a tin sign that features Bugs and Daffy, and of all things a Bugs Bunny shot glass. According to the box, only 36,000 of these sets were produced, so for die-hard Looney Tunes collectors this might be right up your alley!

Disc 1 contains a random assortment of goodies from Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, and other Looney Tunes stars.

Disc 2 contains the complete Marvin the Martian, the complete Taz the Tasmanian Devil, and the complete Witch Hazel, as well as complete collections for other stars. This disc also features one-hit wonders such as I Love to Singa, The Three Little Bops, and One Froggy Evening.

Disc 3 contains films revolving around one of the greatest animation directors of all time Chuck Jones, and features some of his greatest non-Looney Tunes shorts such as: The Dot and the Line and other rare Chuck Jones oddities. Also included on this disc is 9 bonus cartoons such as: Spaced-Out Bunny, Superior Duck, and From Hare to Eternity.

If you are on the fence about purchasing this, pick this set up now! You will not regret it.

"Double Dipping" seems to be the correct assessment. 16 Nov. 2012
By Albert In Tucson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I own, and treasure, The Looney Tunes Golden Collection, as imperfect as it is, and I was extremely disappointed to see THAT series so abruptly and unceremoniously terminated after only 6 volumes as if it were being managed by a child who suddenly and capriciously became bored with it.

In my opinion, that was a slap in the face to those of us who had invested in volumes 1 through 6.

So, you'll understand if I have to look askance at the PLATINUM collection because so many of these titles were previously released in The Golden Collection.

For those who may be wondering (and I apologize if someone has already done this exercise) here, in alphabetical order, are the 6 cartoons on this Platinum Volume that I did NOT see among the cartoons on the 6 Volumes of The Looney Tunes Golden Collection:

BEDEVILED RABBIT
BILL OF HARE
DUCKING THE DEVIL
DR. DEVIL AND MR. HARE
FROM A TO Z-Z-Z-Z
A WITCHES TANGLED HARE

I would love to add the above 6 to my collection, but not at the cost of adding 19 duplicate cartoons.

It's bad enough that excellent offerings such as CAPTAIN HAREBLOWER and
RACKETEER RABBIT (a personal favorite) were given short shrift and wound up tucked away as extras on other disks (CAPTAIN HORATIO HORNBLOWER and PUBLIC ENEMIES: THE GOLDEN AGE OF THE GANGSTER FILM, respectively).

I am VERY disappointed to see what I contend is the continued MIS-handling of this franchise and I won't be rushing out to add the PLATINUMS to my animation library anytime soon.

They are repeating the very same thing that I didn't like about the original DVD Golden Collections 20 Feb. 2012
By Rykre - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
They, again, are mixing up many of the ancient, unfunny, undesirable, 1930's shorts with the more familiar late 40's and 50's classics. And as the Golden Collection on DVD got into later volumes, each new volume had less and less of the shorts that we cherished in syndication on Saturday mornings during the late seventies and the eighties.

So, No way! Not this time! I am not going to invest in Looney Tunes on Blu-Ray if they are going to follow the same reckless release formula. I'd rather see them release these animated shorts in order of their original release dates. Like the way the seasons of our favorite TV shows are done. I'd like to see them release a separate 1930's Collection in volumes, and then a 1940's collection in separate chronological volumes, and then the 1950's, and so on. You know, like "Looney Tunes: Volume 9: 1943-1945". Then we can all collect the discs in a way that we'd enjoy watching them. I'd probably even enjoy watching those less-than-amusing 1930's shorts IF they were all released together in their own time capsule package.

And what was even more of a waste of space is all those featurettes. I don't mind a one hour featurette here and there, but the Golden Collection had the history of Looney Tunes and Termite Terrace at a point of extreme overkill. Not that they are terrible, but they are all not worth watching more than once, so that proves to be a lot of wasted space that could have went towards another 30 or 40 animated shorts, which is why we want these cartoon collections in the first place!

So, Looney Tunes, maybe you'll get it right with the future upcoming Bronze Collection if you ever get the sense to release these animated shorts in a PREFERRED chronologically released sense of order.
