We gave it a B

Not entirely golden, with motor-mouth Sniffles the Mouse taking up a whole disc side in seven tedious shorts. Still, since this is yet another 10-hour marathon of Warner Bros. cartoons, tidily chapter-encoded on laser — a good seven hours of which isn’t available on tape — there’s plenty of gold stuff. The surprise of The Golden Age of Looney Tunes, Vol. 4 is how masterful some of the most obscure shorts are. Bet you’ve never seen, say, Chuck Jones’ 1946 ”Quentin Quail,” an uproarious recasting of Fanny Brice’s Baby Snooks character as a bratty little bird. Funny lady, funnier fowl. B
