5.0 out of 5 stars A gift for Looney Tunes fans!, 11 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Looney Tunes Treasury: 144 (Hardcover)
'The Looney Tunes Treasury' is the perfect gift for all fans of the classic Warner Bros characters.

It's a chunky volume, and visually stunning. The pages are littered with lots of high quality graphics, extras like cartoon scripts and original character act. But what makes it more so unique and interesting is the removable memorabilia, which includes vintage Porky Pig/Sylvester and Tweety comic books, Speedy Gonzales' postcards, Pepe Le Pew Valentines Day cards, a Tasmanian Devil mask and even an 'ACME products' catalogue.

Whilst it doesn't completely provide a factual history of these legendary characters (i.e: a wealth of background information), writer Andrew Farago has decided to let the toons themselves tell their own stories first hand. Staying true to their nature (and using actual quotes from the shorts), reading the writings of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Foghorn Leghorn, Granny and all the gang made me laugh out loud, and I could practically hear Mel Blanc's voices for each of them in my head. This was a very entertaining way to read up on the stars of the shorts, but perhaps it might have been a good idea to include a least of brief run down of each character, providing the basic statistics.

I was particularly excited to see contributions from minor/one-off characters like Michigan J. Frog, Ralph Wolf & Sam Sheepdog and Witch Hazel, all of which are showcased and sandwiched between the famous toons, and it should be noted that Andrew is very good about crediting the directors and artists who were behind the scenes.

This beautifully presented book will appeal to both adults and children alike, it's fun and interactive, and above all an affectionate celebration of all things Looney Tunes.
