"Toonheads: The Lost Cartoons" is interesting to watch just because we get to hear some of the history of the Looney Tunes. But I wish to assert that the unremembered cartoons aren't remembered for a reason. They ranged from boring (nothing really happened in "Cryin' for the Carolines") to hokey ("So Much for So Little" has unfortunately proved quite far from reality), and of course some of the stuff from WWII was pretty racist. It didn't help that the narrator spoke in pure reverence of everything.
So, it's neat to learn the history of Bugs, Daffy, Porky and that whole crowd. But the documentary would have come out more interesting had they talked only about those. Don't make it your first choice.
