"Looney Tunes Golden Collection" Vol. 6: Less Bugs, More Bosko

I’m not going to lie: when I first read the list of contents for the sixth Looney Tunes Golden Collection, I was a tad underwhelmed.

"Tinker Bell:" The Girls Will Love It, The Boys May Not Admit It

Some toy commercials are disguised as entertainment, and some entertainment is disguised as a toy commercial.
