A week or so ago I got my Looney Tunes Golden Collection and the complete Death Note DVD box. One is pretty violent. I’m talking about Looney Tunes, of course ;) . No, really, it’s extremely violent. Death Note has nothing on it.

With this Looney Tunes box I got the classic Roadrunner and Coyote shorts that I wanted. And a ton of other classics. I’ve only watched a few – there are four discs per case. Not all are good, but it’s all quality animation. The one with the Coyote trying to steal sheep under the nose of the sheepdog is hilarious.

I love this cartoon! I remember hunting for a Roadrunner and Coyote collection DVD or something a few years ago, but I never found one.

The reason I searched for this cartoon was that I came across this channel on youtube, which has a bunch of big compilations of classic cartoons. Sadly, no Roadrunner and Coyote videos.

By the way, I recognized this particular episode of Roadrunner and Coyote from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. They’re watching it in Xander’s basement in an episode in season 4.
