3.0 out of 5 stars Not so spectacular Oct. 21 2010
Not as good as the Bugs Bunny Super Stars collection, but still fun. Like the Bugs disc, the aspect ratio changes part way through from 1:1.33 to 1:1.85, coinciding with the introduction of widescreen film formats in theatres in the 1950s.

2.0 out of 5 stars Picture CROPPED to look widescreen! And Daffy Dilly Information. Aug. 14 2010
By Paul J. Mular - Published on Amazon.com
Warner has done something here that they never did with the Golden Collection DVDs, they CROPPED the picture of the 1954+ cartoons to make them look widescreen. The animators at Warner Brothers NEVER animated for wide screen until the 1980 revival. This is evident in the first CROPPED cartoon DESIGN FOR LEAVING (1954), there are jokes missing because they are in the upper or lower portions of the picture which are not there now. Maybe they were shown at the theaters this way, but I want to see them the way the animators intended us to see them.

I have already contacted the powers that be at Warner Home Video to request a re-call and issue a proper un-cropped DVD of these classic cartoons.

This would have NEVER happened in the Golden Collection sets. Someone who does not know better must be in charge now!

"Frustrated Fowl" is the best way to describe this DVD! This will be the LAST Looney Tunes DVD that I buy if this is going to be the new standard. Keep the old un-cropped Laserdiscs, a TRAVESTY has been committed here!

1-800-553-6937 is the Warner Home Video customer service number.

****DAFFY DILLY information****

When Daffy Dilly was first released to theaters on October 30 1948, it was a two-strip CINECOLOR Nitrate film. One color was on each side of the print. On August 18 1956 Warner Brothers re-released the cartoon, re-mastered as a three-strip TECHNICOLOR Safety film (replacing the original titles & credits with the new 'Blue Ribbon' titles).

The original 2-strip Nitrate negatives were either lost or destroyed after this. BUT a Safety film 16mm archival CINECOLOR print has survived with all of the original titles & credits. Warner Home Video did transfer this print to Hi-resolution video but decided the cost of restoring it up to the quality of the three-strip Technicolor 35mm negatives was prohibitive & they opted not to include it on this DVD.

Personally, I would have put up with scrates & low fidelity sound in the titles (CINECOLOR used a blue sound track which does not re-produce well) just so that we could see the original Cinecolor titles & end title.

1.0 out of 5 stars Why doesn't Warner Bros want my money? Aug. 18 2010
By grundle2600 - Published on Amazon.com
The only reason that I will not be buying "Daffy Duck: Frustrated Fowl," and the only reason for my 1-star rating, is because someone at Warner Bros decided to use matting to cover up the tops and bottoms of most of the cartoons on this DVD.

For example, in the original version of "Design For Leaving," Elmer Fudd is shown sitting on a bus, and we can see his face through the bus's window. But on this DVD, we can only see his mouth and the bottom of his nose.

Warner Bros claims that their reason for doing this is because that's what the artists originally intended. I very much doubt this claim. Why would they draw Elmer's face if they never intended for anyone to be able to see it? Furthermore, none of the cartoons on the six Looney Tunes Golden Collections are matted, and no one ever complained about the fact that those cartoons weren't matted.

I bought all six Golden Collections. But I will not be buying "Frustrated Fowl."

1.0 out of 5 stars Improper formatting ruins an otherwise excellent product Aug. 16 2010
By Kevin W. Mickel - Published on Amazon.com
I was really looking forward to this DVD, and the companion Bugs Bunny one. All new to DVD cartoons, remasterd, looking great, and furthering the goal of getting the complete LT/MM library in my collection.

But, there is a serious flaw with this, and the Bugs Bunny disc. The aspect ratio is screwed up. The first few cartoons are just find, presented in a proper "pillar box" format on a wide screen TV. But then, starting with Design for Leaving, the cartoons are suddenly full screen, cropping the top and bottom of the image. At first I thought I had a defective disc, but when both this and the Bugs disc showed the same problem, it suggested to me that WB has screwed up on the mastering of these discs. And yes, it is a formatting error with the disc. If you play the disc on an older 4:3 TV, the ones that are stretched on the wide screen sets are squished inward on the older style ones. This is really sad becuase these are excellent cartoons, but I refuse to pay good money for a defective product. I'll be returning my copies for a refund. :(

Be polite yet firm. Make sure to suggest the idea of a disc replacement program.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cropping ruins toons Aug. 17 2010
By James Quirk - Published on Amazon.com
Yeah, there are WB apologists out there who are just happy more Looney Tunes have been released on DVD. Yeah, there are some toon fans out there who say cropping does not bother them.

But cropping two-thirds of the cartoons on this set was a completely unnecessary thing to do. I really don't understand the mentality that was behind this decision. Just who is WB catering to by ruining these cartoons like this?
