Your favorite Looney Tunes characters are back in an updated version of their adventures, The Looney Tunes Show. I was a little concerned by this reboot. The web was pretty much split on the character design and concerns that the show would take their favorite characters in directions they wouldn’t like. I have watched the show and I have enjoyed the writing and characterization. It is not a replacement for the original shorts that I love, but it is really great to see some of my favorite characters getting some new life breathed into them.
This DVD contains 4 episodes from the first season of the show. I am still not a huge fan of these bite size releases on DVD. I prefer full season releases when I can get them, but in this case it does not look like I will have that choice. That aside, the episodes included are great fun. You get:
Monster Talent – with Daffy Duck and Gossamer
Reunion – with Bugs Bunny, Marvin the Martian and Daffy
Casa de Calma – with Bugs and Daffy
Devil Dog – with the Tasmanian Devil, Bugs Bunny, Daffy and many more
You also get cartoons within episodes and some fun music videos. Which is a lot of entertainment for 12 bucks. So if you like the show or more importantly have kids who enjoy the show (perhaps they have exhausted all the original shorts), pick up a copy of The Looney Tunes Show, Season 1, Vol. 2 on DVD today.
