I realise I'm in the minority here, in fact it's probably bordering on heresy, but my personal opinion is that a lot of the cartoons here aren't golden classics at all, in fact they're unfunny duds. I also realise that the intended audience will be satisfied (the really young ones probably won't even notice the difference), but I figure my money is as good as everyone else's, so let the misanthropy commence:

What Warner Bros. have done is mix together early cartoons with their later output. I think some go back as far as the early 1940's . Back then animation was still a relatively new art form and it's very apparant the team at had not yet fully figured out - either in terms characterisation or timing - the art of making comedy from a sequence of drawings. Many of the characters are not even really the finished article, and the lightness of touch, verve and sheer vitality that characterises the later work seems curiously absent. Yes, there are some funny moments, but far too often you get cartoons that have a slightly dark, stodgy quality, with slack, ponderous or repetitive animation, timing that's not quite right and heavy-handed humour that just isn't funny and at times is even a little bit creepy.

With each successive release things seem to improve, and by the early to mid 50's Jones, Freling, Avery and co. had, both in a technical and aesthetic terms, really started to get their act together. The scripts are smarter, the direction is tighter, the animation snappier and more articulate and the characters themselves are better drawn and more communicative. Timing is now right on the money and every frame seems brightly lit with a kind of brash confident charm that has justifiably made them classics.

Odd - i bought this Region 2 edition today in HMV London. Yet it does not yet seem to feature on this site.
It has been well-reviewed by customers on Amazon.com but i have to knock a couple of stars off, myself.
a). It is expensive: you do get 56 generally well-restored films, including many classics. But there are notable omissions (where is What's Opera, Doc??) and generally a feeling that, for the price and amount of space available on a DVD disc, they could have included a lot more films. There's only one Road Runner included - so let's hope they are planning a further disc devoted to these most brilliant examples of Chuck Jones' work.
b). The 'extras' are not QUITE as jaw-dropping as the cover would have you believe. Each disc has two or three talking-head mini-docs on each main character, but each is only 2-5 minutes long. Many of the creative artists who worked on the films are now dead so we tend to get their off-spring instead... A more in-depth feature on the story of the Looney Tunes would have been preferable. The quality of the commentaries is very variable too - some fascinating and touching, others repetative and bland. That said there are some interesting clips and a brief sound feature of Mel Blanc recording some lines as Bugs and Porky.
c). The cover is not very informative: there is no track-listing. I am sure there will be many people who will not realise that the two 'All-Stars' volumes included in this set are seperately available with exactly the same content.
One glaring error concerns the LANGUAGES: the cover clearly states the films are both soundtracked and subtitled in English, Czech and Turkish. In fact, though several languages (including Magyar) are featured, there is absolutley no Czech content.
