Gee, I wonder how many "Casual" buyers will be surprised to find that when they start up the DVD, they expect to see the traditional "bullseye" opening and stunning Chuck Jones animation and perfect-sounding Carl Stalling/Milt Franklyn music, only to get the bizzare "abstract" WB opening and music, limited and often sub-par Rudy Larriva/Format Films animation and the same annoying Bill Lava music cues over and over, not to mention NO Latin names at the beginning, the Road Runner actually sensing danger for once, and a few other of the unofficial Road Runner rules that were broken in the '60s!
But at least this DVD set will have my favorite non-Chuck Jones Road Runner cartoon: "Sugar and Spies!" I also liked "The Solid Tin Coyote" and "Chariots of Fur," surprisingly. But I was also surprised they went with one of the later Sander Schwartz-produced cartoons, "The Whizzard of Ow." I thought WB was acting as if those abominations never existed, like they're doing with "Loonatics Unleashed?"
