Add Treg Brown To The List All Looney Tunes Greats
19 June 2007 | by See all my reviews

Historians, critics and just plain fans of the old Looney Tunes cartoons always speak with great respect regarding Treg Brown and his great work as a sound-effects editor.

Brown, it turns out, was a very interesting guy, a man with a great sense of humor and was a terrific musician. Music was really his passion but a traveling musician playing nightclubs wasn't financially a good movie during The Depression. He wound up working at Paramount under Cecil B. DeMille, doing sound-effects in some big films such as "Cleopatra" and "Sign Of The Cross."

With that background, he was able to bring those kind of realistic feature-length sound effects to the cartoons when he began working for Warner Brothers. How he incorporated realistic sounds into the fantasy cartoons was very interesting. Brown was real innovator in the cartoon business. This documentary continues with more interesting tidbits about this man and evolution of this craft of sound-effects. I found it not just informative but entertaining to learn about this topic. I was amazed at all the sounds that were made - and how - in the Road Runner cartoons.

This documentary can be seen as part of the "features" on the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume Two, Disc 2 DVD.
