"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
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.
This Cartoon Network special can be found as an extra on disk 3 of the
"Looney Tunes Golden Colection Volume 1" and is certainly a mixed bag
of old "lost" cartoons.Contain greats like the Private Snafu short
"Spies" and "Drafty, isn't it?" The lackluster propeganda of "Anys
bonds today?" and "So much for so little" (the latter actually making
me mad, the former just being boring). And the sheer crappiness of
"Cryin' for the Carolines" and the much-deserved canned pilot
"Philbert". So definitely a mixed bag, but I'm leaning towards telling
you to save your time. If you DO watch it just skip to the two great
shorts that I've mentioned.
My Grade: D+
