Looney Tunes Premiere Collection

Overview

Released in tandem with Warner Home Video's four-DVD box set Looney Tunes: The Golden Collection, Looney Tunes: The Premier Collection is essentially the budget-priced alternative to the larger package -- half as many cartoons and a lot less in the way of bonus material, but presented in top quality and available for less than half the list price.

Overview

Released in tandem with Warner Home Video's four-DVD box set Looney Tunes: The Golden Collection, Looney Tunes: The Premier Collection is essentially the budget-priced alternative to the larger package -- half as many cartoons and a lot less in the way of bonus material, but presented in top quality and available for less than half the list price. The same bright, sharp, and colorful transfers from The Golden Collection are used here, in the original 1.33:1 full-frame aspect ratio, and they look superb; the audio, mastered in Dolby Digital Mono, is also rich and full-bodied. (Viewers get a choice between the original English-language sound tracks and dubbed versions in French, while optional subtitles in English, French, and Spanish are also included.) The wealth of documentaries, behind-the-scenes featurettes, commentary tracks, and the like which filled out The Golden Collection are absent, with only a DVD-ROM game included to add value to the package, though, for casual fans more interested in the meat than the garnish, this may not be so much of a loss. If there's a flaw to this set, it's the same one that dogged The Golden Collection: A number of important cartoons didn't make the cut. While the four-disc package left out a few obvious classics from the Looney Tunes archives, this two-disc set features only shorts which appeared on The Golden Collection and leaves off several of the best-known and most important cartoons from that set, most notably Duck Amuck and Duck Dodgers in the 24th-and-a-half Century. Warners could easily have compiled a more satisfying "condensed version" of their flagship Looney Tunes DVD collection, but at least fans can rest assured that Looney Tunes: The Premier Collection presents these classic shorts in peerless technical form. With any luck, these missing items will likely appear in the same high quality some time in the future.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
More kid-friendly than the essential four-disc Golden Collection, this no-frills two-disc set contains 28 Warner Bros. cartoons from the studio's 1940s and '50s heyday. The archival extras and animated masterworks are missing in action, but all the major beloved characters in the Warner stable are represented. "Elmer's Candid Camera" and "The Daffy Duck Hunt" offer rare, early looks at Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck. "Fast and Furry-ous" and "For Scent-mental Reasons" represent classic Road Runner and Pepe Le Pew ‘toons. In addition to Yosemite Sam, Foghorn Leghorn, Tweety, and the Tasmanian Devil, you also get such lesser-known stars as the Goofy Gophers and the rodent duo Hubie and Bertie. Almost worth the price of the set is the Chuck Jones gem "Feed the Kitty," a surprisingly sweet cartoon about a bulldog's unexpected friendship with an adorable pussycat.

    Good, but go gold...

    I bought this version, unaware that there was a gold version available and was very disappointed. While the tracks are good, it does nothing more the get you thinking about all the tracks that were missed.
