Hey folks, Valkor here. Previously on The Looney Tunes Show, Gossamer got to show off his talents, Daffy went to his high school reunion, Bugs gets busy with a Starlette, and Taz is a menace to society. Now the folks at Warner Home are going another round with Bugs and the gang, releasing "The Looney Tunes Show Season One Volume 3". And third time is the charm!
If you've never watched The Looney Tunes show, here's a quick summary of what it's about:
The Looney Tunes Show centers on Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck living as roommates with house in a suburban cul-de-sac of Los Angeles. Their neighbors consist of Looney Tunes Favorites Yosemite Sam, Elmer Fudd, Speedy Gonzalez, Porky Pig, Witch Lezah, Gossamer, Marvin the Martian, Granny, Sylvester, Tweety, and many more. At the end of each show you get a Wile E. Coyote/Road Runner ep, done up in CGI-style, continuing the ongoing chase between beast and fowl and in between you get a "Merry Melodie" musical number.
Much like the previous DVDs, it's a single disc set that includes 4 episodes and no extras save for a few trailers. Highlights include:
The Foghorn Leghorn Story – Daffy inadvertently gets the lead role, playing Foghorn Leghorn in a story about the rooster's life. Meanwhile Bugs and Yosemite Sam find a face that may or may not be valuable.
Eligible Bachelors (Val Favorite): Bugs and Daffy enter Porky's bachelor's auction for charity, with Lola winning Bugs and heading off to Paris and Granny gets Daffy, who winds up cleaning up her attic and learning about Granny's past.
Quick Pause: I learned three things from this episode 1) Granny was a World War II, hotty bad ass. 2) Tweety is as old as Granny. And 3) I've become aware that I don't know Tweety's gender.
Peel of Fortune – Daffy learns that Bugs makes all of his money selling carrot peelers. So he decides to steal one of Bug's ideas – the automatic carrot peeler, to cash in. But when things go wrong (and when it involves Daffy you know it's gonna go wrong) it's up to Bugs save his bacon.
Double Date – After winning a romantic dinner for two, Daffy enlists the aid of Lola Bunny to help him talk to women (since he pretty much sucks at it) – especially one Tina Duck who works at The Copy Place. Things go wrong when Lola falls for her own words, making Daffy the target of her affections.
So without further ado, let's jump into the TOV Breakdown.
First up, Season One Volume Three seems to have the matures episodes I've seen so far – Daffy describing Foghorn Leghorn as having "two weird balls hanging from his chin"? No way my sick, perverted mind saw that coming! Man, times really are a-changin! Next, Bugs will always be the face of Looney Tunes, but this round Lola Bunny is front and center, essentially stealing the show whenever she's on screen. She's super ditzy and completely off the wall, especially in "Double Date". I lose it every time I hear her sing "who's that girl with the made up name?" Or in "Eligible Bachelors" as she stares at a French building and goes "Wow. The White House. I thought it would be more white. And more house looking". It's even funnier when she continues after that. Overall, the series keeps getting better and better with each episode and I'm lovin it!
Sadly it's these 4 episodes DVDs. At least give us some extras, WB. Plus I still say Daffy gets too much shine in this series.
The Looney Tunes Show Season One Volume Three gets a March 13th release date. And if you're a fan of the series and can't wait for a true box set or you've already gotten volumes one and two, then you'll definitely want to pick up this disc. Believe me, you'll be in for a real treat. And out of TOV 5 stars, I'm giving The Looney Tunes Show Season one Volume Three, 4.5 stars and it's been Valkor Viewed, TOV Approved.
