All Stars Vol.2:
If you like to re-live your youth,or want to watch the cartoons with your children – Looney TunesGolden Collection is a must-have.
All the cartoons have been restored in picture and audio quality, they look visually very good, and the sound is also excellent. You have 56 cartoons to watch, and that doesn’t include the extras which on the whole are very good, you’ll need a lot of time to get through all four DVDs.
There are some classic (well known) cartoons in the set, including “Rabbit of Seville”, “Rabbit Fire”, “Duck Rogers in the 24 1/2th Century”, Tortoise wins by a hare” and lots more. Don’t know the titles… they’re instantly recognisable when you watch them.
The quality of the menu titles is also excellent, with very easy navigation to all the options on the disc. You can select to play every cartoon in a row, go to the various extras, features, or language selection. The titles are in widescreen, while the actual cartoons are “fullscreen” (1.33:1) tv ratio. The extras and features are a mixture of the two formats, depending on what you selected.
The discs start playing with the standard Warner Bros. logo, then into the main menu where you can choose what you want to do. If you play the cartoons to the end, a multi-lingual copyright notice appears after the last cartoon has played out on the disc.
My only problem with the set, is that it all comes in those cardboard fold-out packs (in it’s own card box container), but both are sturdy enough, and well printed. Just take care not to scratch / dent the card.
The second minor point / gripe is that the DVDs themselves don’t look like they are part of the same set. Instead of having printed “Golden Collection”, they have on them; “Best of Bugs Bunny”, “Best of Daffy and Porky”, “All Stars (volume 1)”, “All Stars (volume 2)”.
But apart from those two minor points, this is one boxset worth getting.
