The old T&J Spotlight Collections were more marketed towards kids, or at least younger audiences if some of the special features are an indication (MadTV commentaries, anyone?), which is probably why there wasn't much of a fuss of the same 2 cartoons being omitted on those DVDs.
These Golden Collections of T&J were suppose to be the ones for the adults/collectors and there were early indications that it would be blu-ray only to help gatekeep the "electronic babysitter" consumers. Of course they caved early on to the latter aspect and caved further on the former in a futile effort to forgo the original intent of providing a complete chronological set for some vaguely political marketing reason, thus ensuring a FUBAR'd product line.
I wouldn't say the Spotlight dvd's were aimed at kids at all . They were aimed at adult collectors and the cases for Volume 2 and 3 even say they are for adult collectors and may not be suitable for children on the back .
Fortunately both of the missing toons are available uncut on the UK dvd's although there is one toon missing there too. Can't recall which one offhand but it seems to be an admin error rather than any problem with the content .
