Other than the sell sheet, Ron, was there any other info on the set? TVShowsonDVD.com listed the possible cartoons but some things just don't line up correctly because the listed contents do not come close to 25 cartoon shows.

Hi Greg I think it means 25 different cartoons and not 25 cartoon shows. As they were listing the 3 cartoon per shows, like Huck and Quick Draw each as 3 seperate cartoons. Looking at the pictures on the box I think it is how they are getting 25.

Will there be any new cartoons in this set that has not been released on DVD before? I ask this due to the Quick Draw cartoons showing up on the disc and there hasn't been a full release of that show's cartoons in a long time.

Randy, I counted 43 different cartoons represented on this set. If you count them out by each show, then the number becomes around 23. Sometimes in the past, WHV has put out a release like this (Looney Tunes in particular) with the content listed and then a **CORRECTED** list comes out afterwards with the proper number of cartoons and/or episodes. I also read at Cartoon Brew that the "rabbit" on the front cover in the number *2* is not an H-B character but instead comes from Looney Tunes and that WHV is going to correct the artwork so that it becomes Ricochet Rabbit. I hope instead they put Ruff and Reddy on the cover.

Yeah looking at the list on TVSHOWS website I see what you mean about 43. I guess we'll have to wait for an official announcement.

If this was on Blu-Ray I'd snatch it up in a second. But, it's not.

Damn, this is the reason I've been reluctant to go Blu. I never want to have this attitude, but I know I will eventually if I switch. On topic, is anybody expecting anything new here? I just assumed they were repackaging stuff from previous releases.

There is lots of new stuff here. First off, Ruff and Reddy will be on the set and they have never been on DVD. The same goes for Loopy de Loop and Abbot and Costello. The Quick Draw McGraw/Augie Doggie/Snooper cartoons have not been on DVD yet either. The Yogi Bear cartoon mentioned has never been available on DVD. I would have to check on Atom Ant/Secret Squirrel and Peter Potamus cartoons because they might have been on the Saturday Morning 1960's sets. Also, Cattanooga Cats have never been on DVD either.
