Product description

In a world of rascally rabbits, megalomaniacal ducks, and stuttering pigs, what defines greatness? This question was posed to thousands of cartoon fans, historians, and animators to create "The 100 Greatest Looney Tunes Cartoons, " the definitive "Looney Tunes" collection. Evaluated on their comedic brilliance, innovative animation, historical significance, and creative merit, cartoon historian Jerry Beck and the "Cartoon Brew" team of animation experts reveal the amusing anecdotes and secret origins behind such classics as "What's Opera, Doc?," "One Froggy Evening," and "Duck Dodgers in the 241/2th Century." Featuring more than 300 pieces of original art from private collectors and the Warner Bros. archives, "The 100 Greatest Looney Tunes Cartoons" settles the debate on the best of the best, and poses a new question: Is your favorite one of the greatest?
