Product Description

Amazon.ca

For Blu-ray-owning fans of classic Looney Tunes cartoons, this is truly the ultimate collection. The quality of the restoration and definition on Blu-ray is nothing short of extraordinary, even on the most vintage of the 50 cartoon shorts featured here. The three discs contain cartoons offering classic tales starring Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Pepé LePew, the Roadrunner and Wile E. Coyote, and some of the best supporting characters from this classic Warner Bros. lineup, like Foghorn Leghorn (one short features a pining, rhyming, absolutely thunderstruck "Lovelorn Leghorn," which is priceless). There is also a wealth of material for the true collector. Each boxed set in this limited edition is numbered, and the box includes a small book on the history of the creation of the characters and early cel by cel cartooning. And no Looney Tunes collection would be complete without material on creator and animator extraordinaire Chuck Jones. The whole third disc of this collection presents little-seen documentaries throughout the decades on Jones and his work, some creations by Jones and his team that never saw release, and much more. The brilliance and humor of Chuck Jones is of course evident in the cartoons, but Jones is one great interview. And the other discs offer even more commentaries, by the voice-over actors and animators, as well as alternate audio tracks. It's almost like being able to be right in the animators' creative room, trying ideas on for size. But the stars of this collection are the Wascally Wabbit and his sidekicks, timeless animated characters, and relatable, entertaining story lines that appeal to generations. It's the Blu-ray equivalent of comfort food, without any of the pesky calories. For fans of animation and any of Hollywood's classic works, the Looney Tunes Platinum Collection is truly a must-have. --A.T. Hurley

5.0 out of 5 stars Classics from a Golden Era Dec 9 2011
Format:Blu-ray
I absolutely love having this DVD set. Nowadays, whenever you watch "The Bugs Bunny & Tweety Show," you get the same cycle of watered-down, ultra-politically correct cartoons.

This set reminds me of what cartoons were about. The music, and special features regarding music are unreal! Each feature had amazing orchestration, animation as well as voice work. Speaking of voices, Mel Blanc is in fine form as always.

I feel like this set is more for die-hards rather than just the casual fan. Regardless, the enjoyment that it has provided myself and my family make it well worth the price.

VIDEO:

Looney Tunes Platinum Collection arrives at blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 1.33.:1 encode. This is a collection of 50 of the most famous shorts, spread over 2 discs. Disc one is comprised of familiar characters, chiefly Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck. Disc two is home to some of the more obscure, yet memorable characters that we've seen over the years. Taz, Marvin the Martian, Witch Hazel, Ralph Phillips and Marc Anthony all get their chances to shine. All the shorts varied from 50 to 70 years old. Because of the age of the original print, nicks, scratches, scuffs, dirt, dust and marks occasionally appear. However, each imperfection is inherent to the original source and animation cels, and has little or nothing to do with the tender, loving, restorative care Warner has afforded the various shorts. The palette is alive and kicking, with bright, vibrant colours, vivid primaries and inky blacks drizzled from the animators' pens. Every last detail and flick of the wrist is present and accounted for as well, and it holds up well under high definition scrutiny. (4/5)

AUDIO:

Looney Tunes Platinum Collection has no lossless DTS Mono track. Instead, we were given Dolby Digital Mono track. It isn't terrible, but audiophiles and 'Looney Tunes' fans alike are going to be disappointed that they don't have a lossless track to go along with their favorite cartoons. The mix handles the frantic action on screen with relative success. Dialogue is clear, although it's sometimes hampered by cracks and hisses. It's easy to tell the age of these soundtracks from the tinny sound that they give off from time to time. (3/5)

CONTENT:

The set that I purchased (while it was on sale) is the Limited Edition (21668 of 36000).

It's nice to see these old cartoons in uncut fashion. Better than the politically correct sanitized versions shown on TV as it is honest to the period.
