Next week, May 26th to be exact, Warner Brothers will be releasing a great new DVD for all of us Looney Tunes fans entitled: Looney Tunes: Musical Masterpieces!  My family and I were very excited to receive a review copy of this DVD.  My husband and I grew up watching Bugs Bunny, Sylvester, Porky Pig and the gang and are excited to share these beloved characters with our kids!  This DVD includes 18 musical cartoon favorites.  So many musical genres are represented: opera, jazz, concertos and more.  My family and I just loved the hilarity of the Loony Tunes gang and had our toes tapping along with the music.  If you are a Looney Tunes fan you will LOVE this DVD, so make sure to pick up your copy next Tuesday!

DVD Synopsis: 

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (WBHE) brings some of Looney Tunes’ most memorable musical cartoon favorites together for the first time in one collection, with the release of Looney Tunes Musical Masterpieces, available May 26, 2015. This must-own compilation is comprised of 18 classic theatrical shorts that will get everyone’s toes tapping and hearts singing. Bugs Bunny and his pals will entertain both kids and adults alike with over “2” hours of hilarious musical numbers, featuring opera, piano concertos, jazz and much more. Looney Tunes Musical Masterpieces will retail for $19.97 SRP.  Order due date has been set for April 21, 2015. This title will be released in time for the 2015 Tony Awards.

Prepare for a musical experience as only Looney Tunes can deliver! From the brilliant minds of maestro Carl Stalling and animation legends including Friz Freleng and Chuck Jones, comes 18 musical treasures. Join the likes of Bugs Bunny, Elmer Fudd, and Porky Pig in classics including Corny Concerto, What’s Opera, Doc? and Rabbit of Seville. Dive deeper into the vaults with gems like Three Little Bops, I Love to Singa and Rhapsody in Rivets. Let’s go to the symphony with this must-own collection of Musical Masterpieces!

“Music is such an important component of animation. Not only does it set the mood but it also tells the story,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Vice President Family & Animation Marketing. She added, “The Looney Tunes cartoons we chose for this compilation represent some of the very best musically-driven shorts we have in our library. We’ve added some popular favorites and some rarer shorts that are not seen very often. Now Looney Tunes fans can have all their musical favorites together on one disc. If you love music and Looney Tunes, this is a collection you don’t want to miss.”

Summer Fun - Thrifty Tip Series!


Today is the last day of school for my kids.  I am a work from home mom so I will have to find ways to entertain my kiddos while still getting my work done.  I counted the days that my kids are off school and started a list of ideas to keep them entertained for those "I'm so bored" moments.  Each day I am going to post something from our summer fun list that we tried.  I will also post the cost of each activity.

We are trying to save money to build a house so we will be having a stay-cation and not going on a traditional summer vacation.  We will be taking a week off in July and will be tourists in our own city!  We also plan on doing lots of swimming at my in-laws' and our city pool. 

So please follow along with us and feel free to share your thrifty summer fun ideas as well!
