Yes, here on 4 discs you'll find 60 more of the finest, funniest BESTEST Golden Era cartoons from the feverishly bent artistic minds at Termite Terrace. Disc 1 showcases a certain wascally wabbit. The happiness of pursuit is center stage in Disc 2 and 3's repsective batches of Road Runner and Sylvester/Tweety fun. Disc 4 is an all-star cavalcade of Hollywood parodies and more. All 60 'toons are restored, remastered, uncut. And each disc is chock-a-block with bonus goodies. It's a 24-carrot gem of a collection. Anything less would be DETHPICABLE.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
The first volume of Warner's Looney Tunes Golden Collection included many of the studio's classic cartoons, but a surprising number of the best ones were omitted -- much to the chagrin of diehard animaniacs. This four-disc box set redresses that situation by including virtually all the great Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies shorts that didn't make the cut in Volume One. Some 60 cartoons in all have been meticulously restored and remastered, and many are presented uncut for the first time in years, owing to the lamentable recent trend in purging vintage 'toons of politically incorrect content. Bugs Bunny, the Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote, and Tweety Bird and Sylvester get one disc each, with the fourth DVD compiling other memorable pieces of animation from Warner's legendary "Termite Terrace" studio. The Chuck Jones-directed classics "One Froggy Evening" -- with the singing Michigan J. Frog -- and "What's Opera, Doc?" featuring an operatic Elmer hunting Bugs "Kill the wabbit!" are here, along with the hunt for the last Do-Do bird in the surrealistic "Porky in Wackyland," directed by Bob Clampett, and the well-remembered Tex Avery spoof of The Jazz Singer, "I Love to Singa" featuring "Owl Jolson". Also on hand are quite a few of Warner's cartoons parodying top Hollywood stars of the '30s and '40s, the best of which is "Hollywood Steps Out." Other standouts include "Bugs Bunny Rides Again," a hilarious western spoof; "The Great Piggy Bank Robbery," a bizarre takeoff on the various grotesqueries seen in the 1940s "Dick Tracy" comic strip; and "Gorilla My Dreams," a Bugs vacation gone wrong in which a mother gorilla tries to adopt him. Fully half of the assembled shorts are accompanied by commentaries, and the box set also includes two full-length documentaries, nine behind-the-scenes featurettes, and a timely, all-new cartoon, "Daffy Duck for President." The perfect complement to Warner's first Looney Tunes collection, Volume Two skims the remaining cream from the studio's extensive cartoon library; it's hard to imagine a Volume Three topping or even matching the previous two collections.

    Not the best collection

    I was disappointed in the cartoons selected for this set. Only about half of the cartoons in this collection are really funny ones. Disc One has all Bugs Bunny but only a handful of these are worth having -- for example, it includes the one where the witch drinks the potion that makes her beautiful, the one with 'Finster' the baby-faced bank robber, and the one where Bugs goes home with Dr. Jekyll. Disc 2 contains all Road Runner (which are okay if you like those). Disc 3 contains all Tweetie/Sylvester cartoons (which are great). The final disc is called 'Looney Tunes All Stars on Stage and Screen' and I thought it really had only two cartoons that I liked or remembered from my childhood: the 'Back Alley Uproar' where Sylvester yowls all night and keeps Porky Pig awake, and the one with that little green singing frog. Most of what's included are really old, not-very-funny ones that I don't remember ever seeing before. Warner Bros. has yet to release some of the very best (like the Academy Award winning Knighty Knight Bugs), so maybe a third installment of the Golden Collection will be the real payday. Mean time, I recommend that you try to rent Vol. 2 before buying it to see if it is worth the money for you. Golden Collection Vol. 1 was better.

    Not Enough of the Great Ones

    This just doesn't have enough of the really hysterical ones we all loved as kids.There's no Marvin The Martian, no Tazmanian Devil,no Hillbilly Hare,no "I Love to Singa", no Rabit of Seville,no bugs bunny tormenting the bull in the ring. OK, so it has the coveted singing frog...but just not enough to make this worth buying.

    These are great!

    I don't know why some folks gave this set a bad review, I think it's great! These are many of the cartoons I can remember watching on Saturday morning. The really old ones I'm not that fond of, but with sets as large as Golden Collection Volume I and Volume II, you're bound to have a few you don't like as well. I personally like volume II better than the first set. I can't wait to see what's included in volume III. Overall, if you're a Bugs Bunny, Sylvester and Tweety, Road Runner and Coyote fan, I think you'll love this set.

    Magnificent!!! Even better than the great Vol. 1

    Last year, Entertainment Weekly voted the Looney Tunes Golden Collection the number one DVD of the year, and there was little reason to doubt why. WB cartoons are the greatest animated works in film history, full of humor, wit and a sense of anarchy. Again, this 2nd volume assembles a host of beautifully restored shorts, bursting with Technicolor, but this time we get some of the very best cartoons, including earlier works that hadn't yet been restored in time for last year's collection. Chuck Jones' memorable WHAT'S OPERA, DOC? and ONE FROGGY EVENING are here to please their fans, plus a host of Road Runner masterworks and other Jones signature pieces like THE DOVER BOYS. The amazing Bob Clampett is well represented with his surrealistic GREAT PIGGY BANK ROBBERY, BABY BOTTLENECK, THE BIG SNOOZE, PORKY IN WACKYLAND (in glorious B&W!) among the classics. Friz Freleng is on hand with a host a great Bugs Bunny cartoons including LITTLE RED RIDING RABBIT and BUGS BUNNY RIDES AGAIN, plus a slew of Tweety & Sylvester adventures. The incredible Tex Avery is here, too. His unforgettable I LOVE TO SINGA bursts off the screen along with HOLLYWOOD STEPS OUT and many more. ...but if that wasn't enough, each disc is stuffed with amazing documentaries and extras, sure to satiate any TRUE fan of WB animation. Superbly crafted with thought and creativity. Final proof once and for all why Warner cartoons remain vital and hysterical, while Disney cartoons seem dull and terribly unfunny! GO for the GOLDEN, Volume 2!!!!!
