'Twas alright
1 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This 9 minute and 30 second sort documentary can be seen on Disc 4 of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 2. It features interviews by the same contributers that are on all the other "Behind the Tunes" featurettes, as well as clips from many of the Chuck Jones classical music centric animated Looney Tunes shorts. It was interesting enough, but I expected something a bit better when talking about one of the best cartoon shorts ever. I just couldn't find myself getting into it for one reason or another, I really don't have a clue why as it seemed informative enough.

My Grade: C
