    Why are theatrical cartoons in the TV section?

    My concern is that this set will be like the Pepe Le Peu set: 17 cartoons with one joke (its a giant mouse). Can anyone who knows these cartoons better than I confirm this?

    Hippety Hopper isn't in all of the cartoons, about roughly 10 of them. The rest feature just Sylvester and Sylvester Jr.

    And again, three of the 18 cartoons are repeats/double dips, but WB is representing them as being brand new and never on DVD before and that's just a bit deceptive at their end. This isn't the first time they have done this with regard to the Superstars collections. They need to do some research first before they post their introductory comments on these releases, but at least they have the time to rectify all this.

    I agree with this. IF WHV is crying the blues about how DVD's don't sell. Why are most of the cartoons they restore going there exclusively?

    I think it's more likely inattention to detail.

    Because both DVD and Blu-ray buyers can buy DVD, and WHV can probably best have it both ways with collectors and general consumers (as it seems they want to regardless of series) with a single release on DVD only.
