Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
Animation buffs will swoon with Pepe Le Pew-like rapture at this third volume of classic Warner Bros. cartoons. While Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 contain the bulk of the masterpieces, that was far from all, folks. Vol. 3 contains many essential, historically significant, and just darn funny cartoons. In "Daffy Duck and Egghead," Daffy makes the most of his first starring role, delivering a rollicking rendition of the Looney Tune theme, "The Merry Go Round Broke Down." "I Haven't Got a Hat" marks the screen debut of a stuttering pig named Porky, who steals the show with his rendition of "The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere." "Odor-Able Kitty" introduces amorous skunk Pepe Le Pew (although he's revealed as a henpecked husband and, in this cartoon only, unwittingly pursues a male cat). Also debuting here is Foghorn Leghorn, in the Academy Award-winning “Walky Talky Hawky,” which, as the title suggests, was created as a launch vehicle for Henry Hawk. Disc 2 (of 4), dubbed “Hollywood Caricatures and Parodies,” focused mainly on screen legends of the 1930s, is a particular delight. "The Coo Coo Nut Grove" features irreverent anthropomorphic incarnations of Katharine Hepburn (a horse), Harpo Marx (a bird), Mae West (a voluptuous lovebird), and Laurel and Hardy (a monkey and a pig). In "Thugs with Dirty Mugs, "Ed G. Robbemsom" can't resist showing off his Fred Allen imitation to the audience. "The Honey-Mousers" recasts The Honeymooners couples as mice, with June Foray as the voice of Alice. Disney may have pioneered the art of personality animation, but the Warner stable of iconic characters is loaded with the stuff. Bugs Bunny, TV Guide's pick for the greatest cartoon character of all time, takes center stage on Disc 1 (“Bugs Bunny Classics”) with such gems as "Duck! Rabbit! Duck!," the third in Chuck Jones's famed "Wabbit Season" trilogy of cartoons starring Elmer, Bugs, and Daffy. Two of Sylvester's very best cartoons are included, the Oscar-winning "Birds Anonymous" on Disc 4 (“All-Star Cartoon Party”), in which he pledges to kick the Tweety Bird habit; and "Claws for Alarm" on Disc 3 (“Porky and the Pigs”), one of his wonderful "fraidy cat" cartoons with Porky Pig. In addition to audio commentaries by animation experts and contemporary cult fave directors and animators (among them Joe Dante and John Kricfalusi), there are tributes to Chuck Jones and Frank Tashlin, archival rarities such as vintage black-and-white cartoons (including the studio's very first, "Sinkin' in the Bathtub") and the unaired TV pilot for the live-action/animated series, "Philbert," and a segment about Warner's wartime cartoons. All 60 cartoons in this set are presented complete and uncut, prompting a parental advisory from Whoopi Goldberg that several of the cartoons contain racial and ethnic stereotypes, an unfortunate comedic practice of the day.
