Previously, we discussed the DVD release LOONEY TUNES SUPER STARS SYLVESTER AND HIPPITY HOPPER: MARSUPIAL MAYHEM HERE.
A key point to which was Warner Home Video’s declaration that…
17 OF 18 SHORTS ARE NEW TO DVD! (Or, so says the packaging!)
“Now, together for the first time on DVD, it’s the best of the failure-prone feline and spring-loaded little marsupial in 18 classic cartoons remastered to all their Golden Age of Animation glory! Featuring 17 shorts never before seen on DVD…”
17 new shorts? That’s reason enough to buy any package, even one as chock-full of “giant mouse” plot repetition as this!
But, “Hooold on Thar!”, as Quick Draw McGraw might say, and let’s examine the list of titles a bit more closely:
“Hippity Hopper” appeared on LOONEY TUNES GOLDEN COLLECTION Volume 6.
“Mouse-taken Identity” appeared on LOONEY TUNES MOUSE CHRONICLES: THE CHUCK JONES COLLECTION.
And “Goldimouse and the Three Cats” appeared on LOONEY TUNES GOLDEN COLLECTION Volume 5.
So, I have no idea which “one” WHV regards as the lone “double-dip”, do you?
Still, 15 of 18 is a worthwhile purchase – just not as much as indicated by the packaging.
Needless to say, I have the set and will eventually post a full-blown review.
|Hopefully, it'll be a review that Sylvester, Jr. won't be "Sooo Ashamed" of!|
