The ACME Catalog

In 2006, Warner Bros Entertainment and Chronicle Books teamed up to release a treat for Looney Tunes fans, "The ACME Catalog: Quality is our #1 Dream"!
http://www.chroniclebooks.com/site/catalog/
The 96 page book written by Charles Carney with illustrations by Scott Gross covers quite a bit of the fictional Looney Tunes manufacturing company, ACME.
If you've ever watched a Roadrunner cartoon, you were sure to see Wile E. Coyote use an ACME product. Many other Looney Tunes players have used ACME products as well.
The book is designed quite nicely, with fake prices, item numbers and product descriptions.
You can see several listed items seen in classic Looney Tunes cartoons as well as products made strictly for the book.
If your a Looney Tunes fan, it's well worth a good chuckle.

Darkwing Duck Volume 2 DVD

Disney DVD released a brand new television DVD collection back on August 7th, Darkwing Duck: Volume 2!
This 3 disc set includes the next 27 episodes from the wacky 90's series.
Lots of great episodes in this set!
My only beef with these collections is the fact they are releasing episodes in their production order, not their "chronological-TV-airdates"!
New viewers to the series might be confused seeing the origin episodes of QuackerJack and Liquidator when they already appeared in the first volume. Anyways.....

Some of my favorite Darkwing adventures are included in this set. Episodes such as:
"Up, Up and Awry" - Megavolt is causing problems in St. Canard and is captured by Duckburg's GizmoDuck which leaves Darkwing longing for his own superpowers resulting in his very own gizmo-suit!
"Life, The Negaverse and Everything" - Darkwing Duck travels to Nega Duck's reality where everything is the opposite of what DW knows.
"Dry Hard" - The origin of Liquidator, from water spokesman to supervillian.
"Planet of the Capes" - Comet Guy needs Darkwing's help on his home planet because of a missing Ordinary Guy.
"Darkwing Doubloon" - A different story from out of nowhere that puts the Darkwing cast 300 years into the past to battle on the open sea as pirates.
"Twitching Channels" - Thanks to chance and Megavolt's newest invention, both villian and hero wind up in the human world where Darkwing Duck is a popular cartoon series.
"Twin Beaks" - A trippy, clever homage to the mini-series "Twin Peaks".
"Dead Duck" - After an unfortunate accident, Darkwing is left to his own devices while being hunted by the Grim Reaper.
"Time and Punishment" - Gosalyn takes a trip into the future and meets Darkwing's alter-ego, "Darkwarrior Duck".
"The Darkwing Squad" - S.H.U.S.H. has Darkwing train some of their agents to battle against F.O.W.L. and Steelbeak.
Here are some screenshots from the series for your viewing pleasure!

Tex Avery's Wolf & Red in "Watchdogged Wolf"

Since it's the summer months, I figured I would post a story that fits the season.
In the early '90s, Dark Horse Comics decided to make a limited line of Tex Avery books with new stories featuring his creations in the same wacky vain of the animated cartoons!
This story was featured in a 1995 issue of Tex Avery's Wolf & Red!


Looney Tunes Golden Collection: Vol 5!

The official trailer announcing the yearly release of great Looney Tunes cartoons to DVD was also included on the Popeye the Sailor set from WHV!
A lot of great cartoons and even a disc devoted to Robert Clampett, Termite Terrace's wildest cartoon director of the Golden Age!
