Arthur Q. Bryan,
"Sylvester and Tweety, Daffy and Speedy" wasn't much more than an ABC executive's new name for the same cartoons that appeared on "The Bugs Bunny Roadrunner Show." But what does that matter? If I had my way, these, the finest of all cartoons, would never be off the air!
This culling of some of the funniest, wackiest, and most timeless of the WB cartoons does tend to leave out the WW2 era shorts that you can still find on the Cartoon Network. STDS succeeds in providing an outlet for some of the best shorts that features, Bugs, Pepe, Sam, Elmer, Gossamer, Ralph, Sam, Beep-Beep, Wile E., and (naturally) Sylvester, Tweety, Daffy and Speedy. Don't let the name fool you, the gang's all here!
Watching these greats not only shows how timeless the cartoons are (they're as funny now as they were in 1981, as they were in 1951), but it also shows how complex the writing was. I laughed at so much of these jokes as a little kid, and now I'm getting all the ones that were essentially for the grown-ups!
These shows were always the best that the world of animation has to offer, but if you can find "The Sylvester & Tweety, Daffy & Speedy Show" anywhere, you'll know you are in store for just about the finest culling of Warner Brothers animated excellence ever!
