Love Great Piggy Bank Robbery, especially the commentary that goes with that cartoon. Great stuff so far!
quote:1) The one with Bugs playing barber to Elmer. It was set to a classical piece of music.
quote:2) Farm animals eating "weather pills" and freaking out.
quote:3) Witch Hazel duking it out with Bugs with Hansel and Gretel. "Honsel? Honsel? hehehehehehe!"
quote:I think Patrick was right. "Rabbit of Seville" is the very last cartoon appearing on the first disc of the "Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 1". It matches Matt's description exactly, the classical piece most directly referenced being "The Barber of Seville", (with a nod to "The Marriage of Figaro" at the end. )
quote:I Have a question about the "50th Anniversary Special" included in the set. Warner Brothers made TWO 50th anniversary specialsin the Late 80s; One focusing on Bugs Bunny & one focusing on "Looney Tunes". One of these was pretty tounge-in-cheek. Steve Martin discussed how stars were "influenced" by Looney Tunes; Jeff Goldblum talked about Petunia Pig's "disrespect" by WB; & Bill Murray stole the show with a behind-the-scenes tale about Yosemite Sam. Is this the included special? And if it is, why was it broken up on TWO dvds? Was some of the special's content been removed? Thanks.
quote:My beef, though, is that the black source tag was put on the actual box itself instead of the plastic disc trays-- I was incredibly careful in peeling it off, but it did tear the cardboard. Who's the bonehead who makes these decisions?
quote:1) The inside slipcase seems to have been printed backwards. When the slipcase is oriented so that Bugs appears through the cutout hole in the outside cover, the spine with the Golden Collection title is inside the outer cover instead of being viewable
