Our review:
Parents say (13):
Kids say (36):

There's a reason this show and its characters continue to inspire reimaginings so many years after it first came on the scene. Looney Tunes has become a catch-all phrase for both the collection of cartoons starring these animated celebrities and the characters themselves. Either way, the name is synonymous with hilarious gags, longstanding rivalries, and colorful characters who rarely disappoint fans looking for some laughs. Though the humor's not particularly edgy (you've gotta be a fan of anvil-dropping, shotgun-blasting comedy), you'll see the universal appeal that's given these characters such longevity.

For all the violence they generate, the tortured rivalries are undeniably fun to watch, and the show's superb use of music as a plot device adds so much to the shorts. It's worth noting that many of the early episodes reflect their time in racial stereotypes, drinking, and other now-controversial content, so much so that some have been edited for TV viewing, although not always for DVDs.
