Weekly DVD Picks – December 5, 2006

Another week, and another set of releases. There are a couple more gems that will hit shelves before the end of the year.

First, the genre releases:

Now, the non-genre releases:

Finally, the pick of the week. As good as the Capra collection is, I’ve got to go with the second Animaniacs
collection. I don’t think people realize how much ground this series broke for animated television.

    SNAFU
    I took a Science Fiction class back when I was… GOD was I young. Anyway, we had quite a few classes discussing propaganda in Science Fiction, and it kind of kindled my interest.

    The SNAFU cartoons are a great example. If nothing else, it shows that Our Government happily does all the stuff we accuse Their Government of doing. Of great note are the extremely racist (and racy!) cartoons written by one Dr Seuss, better known as a writer of children’s books, and also of propaganda concerning having American citizens in internment camps. Oh, and the fact that this is made by the same people who brought us Bugs Bunny is priceless.

    I’ve had this DVD (same cover and all) for years so I don’t see why it’s a new release, but if you’re into this kinda thing, it’s wonderful.

    I am VERY happy about Season 1 of Mission Impossible. The pre-Phelps show! Woo! I’m gonna have to get that.

    Animaniacs is indeed an excellent show.

      Bugs Bunny’s brief cameos in a couple of the SNAFU toons are a highlight.

      That just means that it’s been sold out for a while and went back to press. I leave those off the list when I notice them, but I missed this one.

        Oh, cool. I usually wonder if it’s some kind of re-release with more stuff.
