Warner Bros. Entertainment has been doing an amazing job with taking their vaulted animated films and providing fans with a nice 1080p collection. Here we get over a dozen classic cartoons from the '40s and '50s. Included is:
THE EARLY BIRD DOOD IT
ONE HAM'S FAMILY
HAPPY GO NUTTY
THE SHOOTING OF DAN McGOO
SWING SHIFT CINDERELLA
WILD AND WOLFY
NORTHWEST HOUNDED POLICE
SLAP HAPPY LION
KING SIZE CANARY
WHAT PRICE FLEADOM
LITTLE JOHNNY JET
Picture: Warner Bros. always does a stellar job when it comes to both their live-action and animation restorations. Tex Avery in my humble opinion carries on that tradition of excellence. Colors pop incredibly well and you really start to appreciate the craftsmanship that went into these early animation films. There really wasn't any noise or artifacts from age that I could detect. Probably the one thing that might be be of issue is the at times heavy grain. Though even having said that its really fine and smoothed out and not chunky.
Sound: Avery's soundtrack is overall incredibly nice with a DTS 2.0 that really packs a huge punch. Sound is at times big and booming and does a lot with a front channel centric audio presentation.
Extras: Crockpot Quail w/original Audio Soundtrack.
