Looney Tunes Mouse Chronicles: Chuck Jones Collection Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Could Warner's remastering efforts and subsequent 1080p/AVC-encoded presentation look much better? That depends on your definition of better. Flickering, telecine wobble, print blemishes and other inherent inconsistencies are prevalent, particularly in the earliest Sniffles shorts, and black levels are a touch heavy, although perhaps just to my eye. Still, most, if not all of these issues trace back to the source, making the resulting transfer a tussle between faithfulness and what would have been a more invasive overhaul. Purists, collectors and videophiles will appreciate Warner's dedication to the original appearance and texture of the shorts. More casual viewers may lament the sometimes aggressive grain, intermittent nicks and scratches, and several other anomalies; eyesores many other studios would have eliminated without a second thought. But as far as I'm concerned, there's very, very little to complain about. A hyper-polished presentation wouldn't satisfy those with an affinity for Jones' early work anyway, and such drastic cleanup work would only risk tarnishing the very animation being rejuvenated. I applaud Warner's continued devotion to the source above all, be it a collection starring Tom and Jerry, the Looney Tunes bunch, or more obscure characters like Sniffles, Hubie and Bertie.

Everyone, though, will agree that the early Jones shorts have never looked better than they do here. Colors are vibrant and playful, especially once Hubie and Bertie enter the fray, and contrast and clarity are striking. Line art is clean and smooth, painted backgrounds and inserts are lovely, and eagle-eyed animation aficionados will even be able to spot the ever so slight variations in the coloring of animated elements. Grain is also crisp and nicely preserved, as are the mis-strokes and mistakes -- ahem... personal touches -- in the original hand-drawn animation. I did notice some slight banding on occasion (let me stress slight) and a few errant artifacts that snuck their way into the grain field. None of it is cause for any serious concern, thankfully, and nothing else should raise any red flags. Even with three seventy-three-year-old shorts in tow, The Chuck Jones Collection doesn't disappoint. Is it a perfect restoration? No. A strong remaster? Absolutely.


Looney Tunes Mouse Chronicles: Chuck Jones Collection Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

The low point of The Chuck Jones Collection is undoubtedly its 192kbps Dolby Digital single-channel mono track. While a DTS-HD MA mix would have probably only offered a marginal improvement, it would have been lossless and, for all intents and purposes, ideal. That's not to suggest such a mix would have resolved all of the shorts' issues -- some feature crisp, clear voices and bright, eager sound effects; others suffer at the hands of a dull, listless soundscape -- but if paired with a more thorough audio restoration, the results would have presumably been worth the time and investment. As is, dialogue is generally intelligible and peppy (despite some muffled exchanges here and there), mouse-trap snaps and prowling cat rowrs are effective on the whole, and the shorts' orchestral music isn't too canned or bottled up. (Too.) All in all, it's a serviceable track, which isn't saying a whole lot.
