Some of the Disney ones are pretty good, but again I think the human characters work best. (Mickey ones tend to be good, too, for some reason.) Radioactive Man is my lone Simpsons Pop.

Yeah, and he's wearing a headband again like in the original. Nice little continuity. Same with Tweety's temper.

Same non-features, usual bad cover, shameless 4K cash-in on a pointless transfer... Nope, thanks. Has this ever gotten good cover art? I think the only half-decent poster was the "half faces" Bugs and MJ one, and even that didn’t really sell the film. With all of the WB goodness waiting to come to Blu-ray let alone 4K, they choose this!? Not even a new Atmos track!

Of course they removed the bonus cartoons and tv specials.

Lousy cover, for a film I shouldn't have even bought on Blu-ray. Glad to have the 2-disc DVD, though.

My justification for the Blu was that it was in that four pack with two other films I wanted to see...and that Yogi Bear thing, so at least there was value to the few bucks I paid for it. I only got it as it was cheap, since I had the LD already, and that would have done me for the one time I might ever watch it again!

Poor tweety. The spider girl stepped on him. Also we get a look at the cg road runner.

Space Jam remains a ridiculous concept... but the CGI characters look kinda good.

As said before, this does look like a pretty awesome translation of hand-drawn to CG characters. If only the Tom & Jerry movie had gone this route, not that it would have actually helped that total mess of a film.

They simply look gorgeous. Love, love. Still no front shot of Gossy, and Tweety's voice still remains the weakest for me. But hey, at least Granny isn't just a cheerleader anymore. Her scenes are hilarious. If only June Foray were still with us!

Pretty interesting read on Space Jam's old (and now legendary) website:
