The Big Day

Well, today's the buh-buh-big day, folks. The one we have been so eagerly awaiting. Yes, today is the official release day of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 2 on DVD.

If you are like me, you have been waiting nearly all your life to possess your own clean copy of What's Opera, Doc? and One Froggy Evening. btw, I really recommend you get Volume One as well, since it has as a special feature the documentary The Boys from Termite Terrace. Did you know that Bugs Bunny was a counter-revolutionary? He never attacked anyone until they came along and invaded his space. And here's how Chuck Jones introduces the first DVD collection:

"It's been said that in a nation united by its collective sense of humor as much as by its laws, the Looney Tunes have stood out as icons of America's folk hero tradition for most of this century... Whether it was Bugs Bunny's patriotic, independent resourcefulness and defiant spirit in the face of the world's nastiest bullies..."

What's that you say? Election? Where? You have GOT to be kidding. Now how the heck did I miss that...

Got my review copy last week. What's Opera, Doc, One Froggy Evening, AND Porky In Wackyland. They could issue one of these for another decade and never scrape bottom.
