Look whose back with more gags more laughs and more signature showcases! Make way for Looney Tunes Platinum Collection Volume 2 with 50 animated theatrical shorts remastered in stellar hi-def Blu-ray(TM) in all their stellar silliness. Disc One’s selections focus on the core characters such as Bugs Bunny Daffy Duck Porky Pig Tweety and Sylvester Pepe Le Pew and Foghorn Leghorn. While Disc Two offers one-shot classics the complete escapades of Cecil Turtle the all-purpose adversary Nasty Canasta bashful little Beaky Buzzard and the hilariously hungry A. Flea. Saving the best for last Disc Three serves up great fun and insider info with its wild array of bonus programs saluting legendary animators and historical gems. Not to mention a fan-selected favorite that will be sure to satisfy even the most discerning cartoon connoisseur. So grab a chair a comedy cohort and a carrot ’cause it’s always “wabbit” season when this must-own collection comes home!
I have very little to complain about when it comes to Looney Tunes. Well animated and well written, they are timeless treasures to own and cherish. Volume 2 of Looney Tunes Platinum Collection adds an extra facet of these wonderful cartoons by giving them to home viewers in high quality HD… and you get a lot of it.
You are getting nearly 8 hours of Blu-ray cartoons on the first 2 discs AND bonus material on each of these discs. The gripe I have is with disc 3 which is the bonus disc and it is not with the content, it is with the format. While this disc is HUGE and FILLED with content, a lot of it is in standard definition. Yes, it is a bonus, but after watching cartoons in HD it is a little bit of a letdown and slightly jarring. I quickly adapted and settled into watching again. After all these cartoons work at all resolutions.
If you like Looney Tunes and own a Blu-Ray player you could do a lot worse things with your time then watch Looney Tunes Platinum Collection: Volume Two [Blu-ray]. Just keep it mind that disc 3 is BONUS (keep saying it) and you will be prepared for the shift and you will be satisfied with the vast selection (especially for those who have not bought them on DVD already).
