BURBANK, CA (January 28, 2014) – That wascally wabbit and the rest of the Looney Tunes gang are back to entertain cartoon lovers in Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s (WBHE) release of Looney Tunes Spotlight Collection Volume 8, available in stores May 13, 2014. This treasury of classic cartoons is comprised of 30 legendary shorts that will captivate both kids and adults alike. All shorts are re-mastered and restored for dazzling picture and sound quality. Looney Tunes Spotlight Collection Volume 8 will retail for $19.98 SRP.
The first disc in Looney Tunes Spotlight Collection Volume 8 is entirely devoted to everyone’s favorite carrot-crunching, wise-cracking “wabbit,” Bugs Bunny. Fifteen, hilarious theatrical cartoons are featured, including Bugs Bunny Rides Again, in which Yosemite Sam and Bugs Bunny meet in the Old West and challenge each other in horse racing, card games, gun drawing and much more. Bugs Bunny enters the world of professional wresting in Bunny Hugged and becomes the adopted child of a gorilla mother in Gorilla My Dreams. In Tortoise Beats Hare, Bugs Bunny challenges Cecil Turtle to a race and becomes the target of very hungry wolf in Little Red Riding Rabbit. These and several other rip-roaring shorts are featured on this disc.
In disc two, viewers will find an all-star cartoon party featuring favorite characters such as Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Sylvester, Tweety, Speedy Gonzales, Wile E. Coyote, Road Runner and many others. Featured shorts include The Wise Quacking Duck, in which Daffy Duck goes head to head with a meek man who is ordered by his wife to hunt Daffy. In Pied Piper of Guadalupe, Sylvester imitates the Pied Piper of Hamelin to lure a group of mice. In Claws for Alarm, Porky Pig and Sylvester spend the night in an old hotel. In Whoa, Be-Gone!, Wile E. Coyote’s creative schemes to catch the Road Runner include the use of a giant elastic spring, a gun and trampoline, TNT sticks and much more. These and several other rollicking shorts are featured on this disc.
“Our Spotlight Collections are comprised of Looney Tunes cartoons we know will appeal strongly to both kids and adults. We try to select the best variety of shorts, mixing popular favorites with some rarer gems, a combination which will appeal to a broad audience,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Vice President Family & Animation Marketing and Partner Brands. She added, “The Spotlight Collection is an excellent way to introduce younger viewers to a great American classic, that’s been loved and revered by generations.”
