REVIEW — “Looney Tunes Musical Masterpieces” DVD
It’s been a long time since I have been exposed to any of the classic Looney Tunes cartoons. And my children have never been exposed to them! So it was with great pleasure that I was able to show them this new DVD that WB Home Entertainment is releasing. Both my children and I laughed really hard. These cartoons really are timeless. They spoke to me as a kid; they speak to me as an adult; they speak to my children. There are very few things in the world that can achieve that kind of timelessness.
I adored this DVD. 4.5/5 Stars.
