5.0 out of 5 stars A must for kids of all ages!, 25 Jun 2013
This review is from: Looney Tunes: Golden Collection - 1 [DVD] [2004] (DVD)
2004 was a good year for Looney Tunes fans with the release of the first four disc 'Looney Tunes: Golden Collection'.

This DVD set includes 56 cartoons, as well as some brilliant extras, both of which make it excellent value. I was a big fan of these Warner Bros cartoons as a kid, and found this collection to be a treasure trove of fun and nostalgia.

The first disc focuses on Bugs Bunny, and contains some of his best cartoons, 'What's Up Doc?', 'Wabbit Twouble' and 'Rabbit of Seville' were instantly memorable. The 'Wascally Wabbit' was never my favourite characters, but I enjoy his shorts more now that I did when I was a child.

The second disc is even better, and consists of Daffy Duck and Porky Pig, together in such greats as 'The Scarlet Pumpernickel' (which also features many other LT characters), 'Deduce You Say' (a spoof of Sherlock Holmes, and a personal favourite of mine) and 'Duck Dodgers in the 241/2 Century' (well, most fans will remember that one well). The DVD also features the characters solo, Daffy in 'Golden Yeggs', and Porky in the brilliant 'Scaredy Cat' (with Sylvester).

Disc three contains a variety of character shorts, from the Road Runner and Wile E Coyote to Sam Sheepdog and Ralph Wolf (perhaps two of the most underrated characters in the history of Looney Tunes). Now, this is where I will criticise this set (and the other volumes in the series), Bugs Bunny is well represented by his own discs, there is no need to include any of his shorts in an 'All-Star' compilation, characters like Foghorn Leghorn and Pepe Le Pew are overlooked in the 'Golden Collection' anyway, omitting the Bugs cartoons would have made room for a lot more of their excellent shorts (Foghorn in particular), and ensured that every character was given a fair deal and disc space. Pepe did however appear on the aforementioned disc, as did Foghorn (in two shorts) on the fourth disc, another 'All-Stars' compilation, which also introduced Tweety and Sylvester as a team.

The features are great, 'Behind the Tunes' featurettes on all the main characters, with interviews with animators and their families, previously thought of as 'lost' cartoons, commentaries on particular shorts from Looney Tunes experts, and much more besides to delight any fan.

Five more volumes in these series were released, and are all worth having as they are a fantastic buy for any Looney Tunes fan, the memories will come flooding back, and you'll have never seen these classic gems in such wonderful restored crystal clear quality. My only critisum is that sometimes you can't help but think that you have purchased 'Bugs Bunny and Friends', rather than 'Looney Tunes: Golden Collection'.
