5.0 out of 5 stars Why aren't they on TV?, 18 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Looney Tunes: Golden Collection - 1 [DVD] [2004] (DVD)
In the 80s and 90s these were on TV every day - sandwiched between sport events or introduced by the mighty Rolf. These cartoons were Oscar winners, up there with the best of Tom & Jerry. But now..... you can't see them anywhere on TV. I'm guessing the frequent beatings the characters take are considered a bit much by today's standard - in fairness, watching them now it is sometimes surprising to see the hilarious brutality.

Thankfully these shorts are now available on these incredible (and cheap) collections. All the classic episodes are here, but some of the stranger shorts I don't recall seeing, so it's a real treasure trove. I just watched an early road runner episode and laughed as much as I did back in the 80s when I first saw it.

In addition, the extras are genuinely interesting, with fascinating early cartoons and interviews with all the surviving creators. I'm rationing myself to 2 episodes a day to make them last and protect my sanity.
