looney tunes vol. 6
Today, we shine the media roundup spotlight on a title that is near and dear to my heart: Looney Tunes: The Golden Collection, Vol. 6!
Lots of great titles on this one and we've been informed that this is the last Golden Collection title. Not to fear, as Jerry Beck as said that Warner's will continue to release Looney Tunes on DVD, but I suppose under a different title or collection. While he can't say much about it, he has confirmed that WB does not intend to "double dip" with it's releases- which is good news indeed! In fact why don't you check out an interview with Jerry about the release of Vol. 6 over at Cartoon Brew.

Shorts have been restored and many original title cards (like the one at the top) have been restored as well. I am looking forward to so many of these and adding them to my collection, especially alot of the WW II era toons. Also included on the discs, as always are a TON of extras: All-new documentary profile of Mel Blanc: The Man of a Thousand Voices; lots of great commentaries by animators and animation historians profiling ; Music-only and music-and-effects tracks on selected shorts; 2 Looney Tunes TV specials starring Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck; Bonus rarities from the vaults, including Friz Freleng at MGM cartoons and the World of Leon Schlesinger gallery!
I cannot stress enough that this is a must have for any animation enthusiast, Looney Tunes fan or kid at heart! Now just to whet your appetite is a great short that I love featuring that all-time great character and part time con man, Charlie Dog: Often an Orphan. This is a decent You Tube presentations, but just image how great the restored DVD version will look on your TV!
Looney Tunes: The Golden Collection, Vol .6 is a Shelf Classic!
Next: Warner Brothers Gangsters Collection, Vol. 4
All my life, I've dreamed the day I could live in the country. I'm not strong! I need lots of fresh air, and milk, and cream...and fresh leafy veggi-tables!
