WARNER BROS. HOME ENTERTAINMENT PRESENTS
LOONEY TUNES MUSICAL MASTERPIECES
A COLLECTION FEATURING 18 TUNE-FILLED CARTOONS
DVD Release Includes Bonus Features
I have something to confess...I was overly excited when my girls started to get into and watch Looney Tunes, as it was one of my favorite cartoon series growing up, and I have missed it. While my husband is not a fan of the violence that some of the cartoons convey, if you are looking for a fun, entertaining cartoon you can count of the cast of characters from Looney Tunes to deliver.
Recently, I was sent a copy of the new release out today on DVD to review, "Looney Tunes: Musical Masterpieces." If you were a fan of this classic cartoon series growing up, you will find yourself loving this new DVD, which includes some of the most iconic musical numbers from the Looney Tunes vault that you will find yourself recalling. It is funny...I can't remember what I had for lunch yesterday, but I can tell you all about a Looney Tunes cartoon I saw over 20 years ago just from hearing a certain musical number. Crazy!
Both of my girls loved this DVD and found themselves not being able to sit still, as they wanted to get up and dance around, before finding their place near the television to watch the likes of Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck ham it up on screen.
Fans both young and old will love this new relase and want to make a point to pick up to add their growing Looney Tunes DVD collection. We have only had it for a couple of weeks now, but have already watched it a handful of times, with more views to come!
