Looney Tunes: Golden Collection Volume 3 (DVD)


Like the previous entries in the Looney Tunes Golden Collection series, volume 3 confirms how brilliant the Warner Bros. artists were and how durable their creations have proven. The set includes classics that every cartoon buff will recognize: "Duck! Rabbit! Duck!," "Robin Hood Daffy," "Birds Anonymous." Other selections are less familiar but significant in the development of the studio: "Sinkin' in the Bathtub," the first Looney Tune; "I Haven't Got a Hat," the earliest Warners cartoon viewers can watch for fun, rather than as an historic curiosity; "Porky's Romance," in which director Frank Tashlin introduced rapid cutting to cartoons. Some of the caricature films have aged less gracefully. Younger audiences will recognize the drawn versions of W.C. Fields, the Marx Brothers, Katharine Hepburn, and Charlie Chaplin. But will anyone under the age of 60 remember Edna Mae Oliver, George Arliss, or Ned Sparks?

The producers have once again loaded the discs with supplemental material, including "Point Food Rationing," a unseen short explaining wartime ration books; a BBC documentary on Chuck Jones; and interstitial animated sequences for The Bugs Bunny Show. "Philbert" ranks as the oddest of the extras: an unsold (and leaden) pilot from 1963, featuring live actors and an animated title character. Whoopi Goldberg introduces the set, explaining that some of the ethnic gags would no longer be considered appropriate. But she correctly adds that to remove them would falsify both the history of animation and American popular culture. It all adds up to a set every cartoon fan will want. (Unrated, suitable for all ages: cartoon violence) --Charles Solomon

4.0 out of 5 stars Relive your childhood Dec 6 2005
I think other people have already chastized Warner for not releasing these cartoon sets in some chronological order, but that ship has sailed, so let's just focus on the content. I loved these cartoons, and while Whoopi Goldberg had to remind us that the early cartoons are not politically correct, the cartoons are uncut and remastered to look fantastic. I watched some of these and could feel synapses reconnecting and 35 years (or more) of fog lift as I rediscovered some classic toons that I had all but forgotten. Better yet, my five year old watched them with me and fell off the couch laughing at some of these classics. Buy these collections, and if you have young kids (or grand kids) sneak these out when their politically correct, vegan, V-Chip using parents are out and show them to a new generation. I'm still looking for the ACME company catalog for those giant springs and anvils. I'm amazed at how well some of the gags hold up after 50 years. What a treat. I believe, I believe, I believe that's all folks!

5.0 out of 5 stars It is still as good April 8 2010
By Mike P
When something is still good after more than 50 years, you know you got something successful and that's what we got here. The volume three of this series of six is as entertaining as the first two. The childhood of so many generation can be watch as much as we want with 59 of those "shorts" and they were respectful enough to give us english and french audio track. The picture quality is excellent and don't look old at all. A must for any Looney Tunes fans.
