Review: "I Say, I Say...Son!" Shines a Light on Looney Tunes' McKimson Brothers

by Ed Liuon January 12, 2013
I Say, I Say…Son! bills itself as a tribute to Bob, Chuck, and Tom McKimson: three artistic brothers who spent tenures at Warner Bros. Animation during its heyday from the 1940’s to the 1960’s.

As far as I can tell, the video and audio quality of all the previously released shorts is identical to the releases on the […]

by Dr. Daedaluson November 15, 2011

The annual Golden Collections ceased coming in 2008 after the sixth volume, and the only new releases in 2009 were a couple of theatrical compilation films, both of which were mostly made up of cartoons already on DVD. Things improved a tad in […]

by Dr. Daedaluson November 2, 2011
Following in the footsteps of “Looney Tunes: The Essential Bugs Bunny”, we have another double dip, best-of release. This time, Daffy Duck gets his due. The first disc mostly repeats from the Golden Collections and Daffy Duck: Frustrated Fowl. However, “Porky’s Duck Hunt” (1937, Tex Avery) is new to DVD, and even better, it features […]

"The Looney Tunes Show" Season 1 Vol. 1: Neither Looney nor Toon-y

by Ed Liuon October 6, 2011
One of the benefits of reviewing DVDs for this site is the incredible breadth of material available for review, which can sometimes lead to interesting and unexpected juxtapositions. Watching several of the new releases from September 27 led to one of those weird juxtapositions, as I realized that there is far more comedic slapstick mayhem […]
