Cartoons Greatest Hits is a budget-priced, 15-track collection featuring good versions of songs that are familiar through their use in the soundtracks of cartoons. For fans of such familiar pieces as "The Blue Danube," "Flight of the Bumble Bee, " "Ride of the Valkyries, " "Sabre Dance" and "The Sorcerer's Apprentice, " this is an ideal sampler. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
