Over a year ago I mentioned the Looney Tunes Golden Collection, and confessed that guilty pleasure. Well, I now have Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 2, 60 cartoons on 4 DVD’s that are required viewing (over and over, of course). Disc 1 is all Bugs, disc 2 is the best of Road Runner (buy the collection just for this disc, really!), disc 3 is Tweety and Sylvester, and disc 4 is an assortment of (for the most part not overly impressive) stuff. This collection is a must have, but be warned, you’ll not be able to watch just a few cartoons, once you start you’ll be hooked! 🙂

  1. What is it about Road Runner that’s so endearing? Part of what makes it so great is that I can’t decide whose side I’m on or even what I like so much about it!
    The insane gadgets are always a laugh, especially employed in plans that could only be conceived of by Senior Coyote, who at times seems like MacGyver’s not-so-bright little cousin.
    Equally as fun is the farce of the entire plot – where the heck is that bird running to begin with? Why do we innately want him to outwit Coyote to get there in the first place?
    Maybe I’m just easily amused, but at least I can now claim to being in good company.

  2. I’m the same with the Animaniacs. I’ve got about 24 hours worth taped off the TV, every officially released video (including US ones, which I picked up last time I was over) as well as 3 audio CDs.
    I won’t mention the stuffed toys 🙂

  3. Joe, it is the insane contraptions, the wonderful Latin names, and that look on Coyote’s face each time he knows he is about to get bashed / burned / flattened / exploded / blasted / smothered / etc. 🙂

  4. Why didn’t the Coyote ever sue the ACME corporation. They were clearly negligent for manufacturing faulty equipment. They should at least be forced to go through a Sarbanes Oxley audit.

  5. Ben: My wife is a huge Gossamer fan, so I’m holding off on buying any of these collections until they put "Water, Water Every Hare", "Hair Raising Hare", and "Duck Dodgers and the Return to the 24th 1/2 Century" into a set. They’ll have an instant sale when they do.

  6. I wanted to get these DVDs but I was concerned certain sterotypic parts were cut out or dubbed by Turner. All of those cartoons reflect the time period and its important to leave them uncut.
