Product Description

LOONEY TUNES GOLDEN COLLECTION VOL 2 (4 DVD BOX SET)

Synopsis

Greetings, Looneytics! For all who rightly place Looney Tunes alongside Mom, apple pie and web-surfing at work as American institutions, this is your time to rise and shine and watch. Yes, here on four discs you'll find 60 more of the finest, funniest, bestest Golden Era cartoons from the feverishly bent artistic minds at Termite Terrace. Disc 1 showcases a certain wascally wabbit. The happiness of pursuit is center stage in Disc 2 and 3's respective batches of Road Runner and Sylvester/Tweety fun. Disc 4 is an all-star cavalcade of Hollywood parodies and more. All 60 toons are restored, remastered, uncut. And each disc is chock-a-block with bonus goodies. It's a 24-carrot gem of a collection. Anything less would be dethpicable.

Firstly, don't be put off by the lack of box shot or information on this listing - this really is the second volume in the Looney Tunes Golden Collection series! It's the same as the American version, so if you want to find out more about it you might want to do a quick search on Amazon.com rather than .co.uk.

It contains 60 cartoons spread over 4 DVDs, along with a host of commentaries, featurettes, rare toons and shorts, clips, voice-only tracks, interviews... the list goes on! The cartoons have been beautifully restored and remastered, and are presented uncut with all title sequences intact (which is just as well, as my only real gripe with this collection is that there isn't much info on the packaging or the menus - you have to play the cartoons to find out what year they were made, who directed them, etc.)

As with any collection of this size, there are a couple of cartoons that I can't see myself watching more than once, but the majority of the toons on here are fantastic stuff. It's hard to pick favourites, but highlights include the classic "What's Opera, Doc" and "One Froggy Evening", along with some pretty rare jazzy Merrie Melodies including "I Love to Singa" and "Have You Got Any Castles?".

This is an excellent collection and an absolute must for toon fans, kids, big kids, etc. If you don't already have it, I'd recommend that you get the Golden Collection Volume One first (but I'm biased towards Daffy, so I would say that); however, this is certainly a worthy follow-up and deserves a place on anyone's shelf.

Finally, because I have a kind heart, here's a listing of the cartoons on each DVD. There are too many extras to list, so you'll just have to take my word for it that you'll be surprised and delighted!

I have waited a long time to find `What's Opera. Doc' in a compilation DVD. Great value for your money when you see all the stuff on here but worth buying for this gem alone. However, there are many other cartoons in there which will instantly transport you back to Saturday morning in the cinema - the only way to get a dose of cartoons when I was a kid growing up in the 60s...

Saturday evenings do not have the same appeal to kids as it did when I was younger and Looney Tunes was an integral part to the evening.Now due to the amount of reality shows and other poor shows it really is bad.However the purchase of this DVD is a gem,and I specifically bought it for my son who is just over 15 years old and had not really seen any of these cartoons .He can now enjoy and watch what I watched on a Saturday all those years ago
The cost of this purchase is nothing when you hear the laughter of my son and me laughing at the same cartoon situations.What a great buy!

Madcap, zany, and many other adjectives, and all utterly hilarious.
Oh Sylvester when will you ever learn to leave Tweety alone!
This collection is packed with characters that still enchant children (and me) even in these cynical times. The loads of extras were a nice touch I didn't expect. I also wanted to purchase MGM's Tom & Jerry and Mr Magoo, but after hearing the PC police have been interferring with them, they will not now be purchased, damn shame.*
I despise PCism, it's wrong to thrust our 21st century sensibilites onto earlier documents that reflect a different age and viewpoint, it smacks of arrogance that we are right and they were wrong. Artistic expression should be regarded as sacrosanct, not something that is allowed to be interfered with when morals and mores change.
Anyway, there's more laughs in one of these ten minute cartoons then in a whole series of sitcoms.
Some trivia about Sylvester my favourite character ~ Sylvester appeared in three out of the five Oscar-winning Looney Tunes shorts, more than any other character.

* UPDATE~~~~ I've purchased Tom & Jerry collector's edition volumes 1&2 (Region 2)and there is no sign of any censorship, my apologies to MGM.
Apparently the censorship is only on the region 1 versions.

A few years ago I don't think I would have ever purchased the 'Looney Tunes' on DVD. After all, I had long since outgrown them right?. Wrong! I decided to buy this set for two reasons: It was only £4.99 and it contained 60 cartoon shorts.

To my complete surprise, I really enjoyed this collection and so much so that I'm going to buy the other volumes in the 'Golden Collection'. The memories came flooding back and I can remember virtually all the cartoons (I was a Looney Tunes fanatic in the day) but to see them in such wonderful remastered quality was a treat in itself. If anything, I found the cartoons even funnier and more entertaining now that I'm older.

Disc one is a showcase of 15 Bugs Bunny shorts and there are some real gems. My childhood favourites such as 'Broomstick Bunny' (how I loved that cartoon!) and 'The Hare Brained Hypnotist' were just as superb as I remember.

Disc two contains 11 Road Runner and Wile E Coyote cartoons. If I'm honest, I never liked these shorts even as a kid and they are still not my favourites. However, I did enjoy them more than I did back then. If you are a fan of these characters then this disc is a treasure trove because as well as all those shorts, one of the bonus features on it is an old 1962 TV pilot called 'Adventures of the Road-Runner'. The DVD also includes four bonus shorts of characters that were semi-regulars in the series, the best chosen cartoon (in my opinion) is the funny The Three Bears (under-rated characters) story 'A Bear for Punishment'.

Disc three has nine of the Sylvester and Tweety cartoons and episodes such as 'Room and Bird' were a joy to see again. But I confess, the real gem on this disc for me was cartoon no.
