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." Brian Walker, Cartoonist Hi and Lois and Cartoon Historian This colorful compendium is a fun and educational nostalgia trip. It inspired me to pop some of my favorite cartoons in the DVD player and look at them with renewed appreciation. Karl Cohen, ASIFA-SF President "LOONEY TUNES TREASURY" is a lot of fun for any fan of Bugs Bunny and friends... The world doesn't need another serious book about Termite Terrace so Andrew has provided us with a lighthearted tour of the world of my favorite cartoon stars. Mark Waid Editor/writer, BOOM! Studios' The Incredibles comics You can dive into this book and swim around happily for hours in its anecdotes, its insights and its wonderful toys. The graphics are breathtaking, the writing is hilarious, and the whole package is a joy. Bookviews by Alan Caruba, 11/28/10 "If I could have just one book in my Christmas stocking it would have to be THE LOONEY TUNES TREASURY...If you loved Looney Tunes, you will love this wonderfully entertaining book about them." Marilyn Dahl, Shelf Awareness, 11/29/10 "...what a treasure it is. As one would expect, it's filled with art and text, but also with inserts like a Tasmanian Devil mask, a Tweety and Sylvester comic, a facsimile script for Bugs Bunny's "Rabbit Hood" and much more... We need more laughs today, and this book delivers. Journal Sentinel, 12/3/10 Compiled by the curator of The Cartoon Art Museum, the book's contents sproing out at you like Road Runner after too much java. This is a caa-ray-z insider's look at Looney Tunes, with 200 pieces of concept art, a shooting script to Bugs' "Rabbit Hood" and other memorabilia. Bonus materials include a Tasmanian devil mask and an all-important Yosemite Sam Wanted Poster. Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy, 12/16/10 "...When I tell you that each of the articles is supposedly written by the "star" in his or her own voice, you'll understand that this is not a serious historical tome: it's meant as a celebration. Oodles of original artwork, photos of vintage memorabilia, and even staff caricatures fill its pages, and it's great fun to go through."
