TOTS 100 Film Club - Looney Tunes Big Faces Box Set

The Looney Tunes Big Faces Box Set contains 10 DVDs, each dedicated to one of the Warner Brother's famous cartoon characters, so familiar from my childhood: Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Tom, Jerry, Tweety Pie, Speedy Gonzales, Road Runner, Taz, Porky Pig and the fabulous Wile E Coyote.

The running times and number of episodes on each DVD varies but they are all packed full of cartoon capers and the comic violence which Mary Whitehouse once tried so hard to ban for fear of the damage it could cause to young minds.

The cartoons are undeniably old but classics never lose their charm. The box illustrations give the whole thing a modern, fresh feel with glorious, updated portraits of all the characters.

I felt very nostalgic watching episodes of Daffy Duck and my daughter fell in love with the impossibly large eyed canary, Tweety Pie (although personally, I'm always rooting for the Puddy tat, Sylvester!).

The box set has huge appeal and I think represents excellent value for money.

Definitely a welcome addition to our DVD library.

That's All Folks!
