Most of these cartoons are quite funny and will appeal to audiences young and old. All of the early Warner Bros. cartoons, originally six minutes in length, and directed and written by some of the great animators of the last century such as Chuck Jones and Friz Freleng, were meant to be enjoyed on a number of levels. For the very young, there were chases, explosions, clever ruses, and lots of slapstick danger. For a more sophisticated audience, the cartoons were inventive parodies with ingenious cultural references and double entendres. This compilation is no exception. Mel Torme croons in a monster bar; the Abominable Snowman is designed as an homage to Lenny in John Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men. And for the kids, there are the requisite number of one-upsmanship moments when little birds outwit big kitty cats and monsters.

The film with Daffy's inheritance and business venture, which was created in 1988, is supposed to complement the various old cartoons, and it's moderately successful. The older short films with Mel Blanc's brilliant vocal characterizations, however, are really the best part: charming, clever, and often very funny.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
