I was happy when I was asked to review the two newest movies from Warner Bros. Entertainment - Tom and Jerry: The Gene Deitch Collection (June 2nd,2015 release date) and Looney Tunes Musical Masterpieces (May 29th, 2015 release date). Both will be released on DVD and will be a unique take on each classic. Kevin is a huge fan of the Tom and Jerry series which he watched as a child so I knew he'd enjoy sharing the classic with the boys. Looney Tunes is more a favorite of mine and knowing how much the boys love music, I knew they'd enjoy this one!
The Tom and Jerry: The Gene Deitch Collection synopsis says “Over the years, there have been many artists who have put their own unique touch on Tom and Jerry cartoons. This collection recognizes the work of long-time animator Gene Deitch, who directed over a dozen shorts,” commented Mary Ellen Thomas, Vice President of Family and Animation Marketing. She added, “We’re delighted to bring these beautifully remastered shorts to collectors. If you are a fan of classic Tom and Jerry shorts or just love animation, this is a must-own DVD for your home entertainment library.”
This collection includes 13 memorable shorts as well as two enhanced bonus features. As an old favorite of us "elder's", we love watching the shenanigans these two pull on each other. Plus now the boys love watching this with us as well since the two of them are always pulling pranks on each other too!
The Looney Tunes Musical Masterpieces synopsis says, “Music is such an important component of animation. Not only does it set the mood but it also tells the story,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Vice President Family & Animation Marketing. She added, “The Looney Tunes cartoons we chose for this compilation represent some of the very best musically-driven shorts we have in our library. We’ve added some popular favorites and some rarer shorts that are not seen very often. Now Looney Tunes fans can have all their musical favorites together on one disc. If you love music and Looney Tunes, this is a collection you don’t want to miss.”
This collection includes 18 classic theatrical shorts which make up over “2 hours of hilarious musical numbers, featuring opera, piano concertos, jazz and much more." With Declan being so musically talented, I love providing him with movies and shows like this where he can enjoy more and more music. He loves keeping busy with dancing and singing and now I can sing along with him, with something I actually enjoy.
