The Looney Tunes Golden Collection was a yearly series of six four-disc DVD box sets from Warner Bros.` home video unit Warner Home Video, each containing about 60 Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies animated shorts. The series began in October 2003 and ended in October 2008
Volume 6 (released on October 21, 2008). Disc one is an all star disc.
Though the disc (and the set) kicks off with a Bugs Bunny cartoon, `Hare Trigger,` pitting the ol` gray rabbit against Yosemite Sam, this `All Star` themed collection of shorts is all about variety, and it quickly makes the jump from Warners` biggest star to give some airtime to many characters that people know and remember, they just don`t always remember that they know and remember them until they see them. In fact, the disc is kind of arranged to move from the more famous characters to the more obscure. From Bugs to Daffy to Foghorn Leghorn, Pepe le Pew, and onward. Most of the characters get a couple of cartoons rather than just being a scattershot of various features, but this is not an exact science.
The Pepe le Pew cartoon is one I was most excited about, and not just because I see my own love life in the little skunk`s earnest failures. I`ve always had a soft spot for the Maurice Chevalier parody, even before I knew who Maurice Chevalier was. The selection here, `Heaven Scent,` is a good one, with the lady cat painting the white stripe on herself in order to outmaneuver some angry dogs, and having it backfire on her, as it always does, when our odoriferous Lothario catches wind of her charms.
A couple of other characters that surface here are Charlie Dog, a Chuck Jones-created mutt, who cons his way into different homes to get off the harsh streets where hunger and dog catchers are going to get him. In `Dog Gone South` it`s the mansion of a blustery southern gentleman and in `Often an Orphan,` he takes advantage of Porky Pig. A dog of another sort, a snooty thespian, struts through Robert McKimson`s `A Ham in a Role,` swearing off low-comedy before getting into a slapstick tussle with the Goofy Gophers, Mac and Tosh, the latter voiced by Stan Freberg. It`s a deliciously funny cartoon, busting through pomposity the way the Looney Tunes were always so good at.
Tweety, Road Runner, Elmer, the Three Bears, and even Satan himself all make an appearance on this disc, making for a really strong leader for this Golden Collection. Six volumes in, and some 360 cartoons later, and there`s still gold down in those animation vaults to earn these boxed sets that title.
