Herb, the most complete review I've seen for the set so far, its good to know which cartoons have commentaries and which don't for instance. The more reviews I read, the more I want this set. This is my most antisipated title of this year, and maybe since I've gotten a player, and I couldn't wait for Simpsons S. 3, but this I want so much more. Great review, its the Golden collection for me.

A superb review (per usual) from Mr. Kane....

I don't know how I can wait until Tuesday.

Warner Bros. is definitely studio of the year in my book, hands down (and thumbs upPosted Image )

Hell, from the description of the extras, I'd almost buy for them alone. I had little idea that there would be that much material. Warner deserves an extra few "Lumps" for this set

Mega review Herb. A must buy for me. Can't believe they bothered to cram it with so many extras, what a bonus! I would have still bought the set without (but shhh don't tell Warners!).

On the minus side they seem to have left out What's Opera Doc? probably the greatest Bugs Bunny short of them all. Why?

A definite buy!

Actually Private Snafu cartoons are available on a dvd called The Complete Uncensored Private Snafu. Certainly not restored, but still worth getting if you're interested. I haven't seen these for a while, but don't remember anything about them that would keep them from being included in future sets (some hells & damns maybe). What isn't available, and may never be are shorts like Coal Black & de Sebbin Dwarfs. Posted Image

This sort of makes the Disney Treasure series look pretty lame by comparison.

Well I will be picking this one up while in New York next week...thanks for the good review. Just need to know the price will most likly be and how much I should expect for the New York area (like if the super Toy R Us would carry it).
I need a new signature.

There's always a chance they won't put them on discs...but people like Jerry Beck may be able to convince WB to put them on DVD. Warner Bros. is a LOT more flexible about un-PC stuff than Disney.

Thanks for the great review. This set is true DVD gold (maybe that's why they named it the golden collection?) and Tuesday can not get here soon enough!! Chris S.

Great review Herb. I will buying this at Sam's next week for the unbelievably low price of $39.99 (unless Walmart goes even lower.)

Sorry George, that sentence wasn't very clear on my part. I'll reword part of it... Yes, I was referring to the actual shorts that may not necessarily see the light of day (we can only hope).

After seeing Best Buy's high price for this next week, I ordered the Golden Collection from Amazon.ca. Tuesday can't come soon enough!!!
