My brother Ira was a Popeye fan. Me? Looney Tunes all the way. I lost hours of my youth watching Bugs, Daffy, Elmer, Porky, Tweety, the Road Runner, Sylvester and Marvin over and over again the way my daughter once watched The Bear in the Big House.
But, please! Don?t tell her I told you that.
Anyway, I?m telling you this as a way of introducing my guest, Andrew Farago. He?s the author of a clever new coffee table book, The Looney Tunes Treasury. In it, each illustration-packed chapter is written by Andrew in the voice of a different Looney character, from Bugs and Daffy to Marvin and Tweety.
As if that wasn?t enough, the Treasury is packed with unique collectibles, such as The ACME Catalog ? that?s where super-genius Wile E. Coyote gets great deals on anvils ? and Daffy Duck stickers.

ANDREW FARAGO audio excerpt: "I'm a second generation fan; my dad was always quoting Foghorn, Bugs and Daffy. We watched these things together as much as we could when I was a kid."
