Looney Tunes Spotlight Collection <b>DVD</b> ~ Mel Blanc
1.0 out of 5 stars Go for the GOLD!, Aug. 11 2003

Limited extras, limited value - GO FOR THE 4 DVD GOLD COLLECTION!

The DVD loads up showing trailers for Finding Nemo, Stanley March 11th, Lion King SE, Sleeping Beauty SE (with no more news on a release date) as well as the Disney Princess toys/clothing trailer.
The nicely animated view of the castle acts at the animated dvd menu. The animation here features swallows oddly flying through falling snow?! Whatever, it's pretty and marked with SFX as well… Read more
