Product Details


Product Description

From Library Journal

At their best, Warner's "Looney Tunes" and "Merrie Melodies" starring Bugs, Daffy, Porky, Sylvester, Tweetie et al., were the zaniest and most inventive of all the movie cartoons--sly gibes at the tame Disney approach. "The Studio," Part 1 of this lavish, 9 12 volume, chronicles Warner's growth and development over four decades, while the second part, "The Stars," contains short treatments of the major characters and their unique personalities. Factual matter on the directors, artists, and other talent is extensive, and many animation drawings, layout sketches, background paintings, and color cels are reproduced. Will Friedwald and Jerry Beck's The Warner Brothers Cartoons (Scarecrow Pr., 1981) offers useful summaries of individual 'toons but lacks the illustrations that highlight this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great resource for WB cartoon buffs. Sept. 30 1996
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
First, I have to confess that I am a card-carrying adult who
still watches cartoons every Saturday morning. As an adult,
however, I'm now interested it the history of the cartoons
I watch. (It makes me feel more...sophisticated about my
cartoon viewing.)

"That's All Folks" has incredible full-color pictures,
chronicals the history of WB cartoons, provides specific
information about the most popular characters and cartoons,
AND includes a filmography of WB cartoon releases. If you
like Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and the rest of the gang,
you should have this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good survey historical and technical survey May 15 1998
By nina@talariaenterprises.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
While writing an article for the Talaria Enterprises Museum Store's new release of Looney Tunes sculptures, I turned to this very informative book. It discusses the history and impact of the Looney Tunes characters from historical, technical, and theoretical perspectives. Very Good Sourcebook!

5.0 out of 5 stars Colourful ode to Warner Brothers animation Sept. 18 2002
By G. B. J. Grob - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This is an excellent and richly illustrated book on animation at Warner Brothers. It contains a lot of background information on e.g. Carl Stalling's music, the styles of the different directors, inside jokes, war cartoons, forgotten cartoon characters and so on. The joy of reading this book is only surpassed by watching the Warner Brothers cartoons themselves.
5.0 out of 5 stars great Sept. 3 2012
By David - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This gives the history of Warner Brothers' cartoons, including Bugs, Daffy, Porky, the Coyote and Roadrunner, and some others now forgotten. The 30's were a very creative time for American art, and the 40's crystallized characters still relevant today. This is a great history, with lots of images of the characters.
