The Looney Tunes Golden Collection Vol 1-6, a 6-volume 24-disc DVD compendium of some of the greatest animated cartoons to come from the Warner Brothers studio, is on sale today from Amazon for only $64.99, an incredible deal that’s more than half the list price of $145.00!
Without question, the animated shorts that came from Warner Brothers still stand today as one of the upper echelon bodies of work of the entire animation genre itself. Making the focus on comedy , they were in sharp contrast to the output coming from the Walt Disney studios at the time (the mid 20th century). Sporting a rather rebellious, anarchic feel to them, they delighted and continue to delight scores of generations of fans globally. They also manifested superstars and legendary characters such as Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Sylvester the Cat, Tweety Bird, Yosemite Sam, Foghorn Leghorn, Elmer Fudd, and of course, one of the great characters in the history of cartoons itself, the irrepressible, take-no-prisoners, do whatever it takes to snare your opponent and outwit him, the one-of-a-kind, once in a lifetime, Bugs Bunny.
Spanning six volumes here in the collection, spread out over 24 DVDs, are the highlights and best cartoons of all the aforementioned characters and more. Unedited and re-mastered to the sharpest, highest quality and covering the black and white era of the company as well as the color, each short is memorable and hysterical, fast-paced wacky action for the most part that most will remember from their youth and into the present day. Directed by such animation luminaries as Chuck Jones, Friz Freleng, Bob Clampett, and Tex Avery to name a few, these shorts have not dated or dulled in their visual and narrative sheens one iota. If anything, they look and play out better than ever. Tons of bonus material round out the collection as well, documentaries and audio commentaries, a full cornucopia to add luster to a collection that already is blindingly bright.
The Looney Tunes Golden Collection Vol 1-6 is highly recommended and stands alone on the animation summit as possibly the greatest output of material ever created by any animation studio in any moment in its history, hands down.
Note, this deal is valid only for today, Tuesday, April 9, 2013, until 11:59pm PST while supplies last.
