20.Blooper Bunny is not one of the classic cartoons. I like it and am glad it was included but that was the one with the Bug's 51 and 1/2 Anniversary. Elmer using Minoxidil hair restorer and Daffy flushing a toilet etc. 19.False Hare was the last of the classic Bugs cartoons.

I will be looking for store exclusives or foreign releases which might have the disks by themselves.

This was probably included in an earlier set but I am surprised it wasn't included in this set.
Red Riding Hood was voiced by Bea Benaderet, who latter was the first voice of Betty Rubble, Kate on Petticoat Junction, Blanche on Burns and Allen, and Cousin Pearl on the Beverly Hillbillies. Also the first voice of Granny on Warner Bros cartoons.

Pops are some of the biggest collectibles around. By the box and take the Pop to your local comic or collectibles shop. As an exclusive, it should be in high demand. I'm sure that someone will take it off your hands. It's a pretty minor quibble to make about what looks like a pretty fantastic box set.

I'll start by being positive: there are new restorations. That's great. However many there are. But for me I was done with "best ofs" when we switched from VHS to DVD. Never picked up the Super Stars in part for this reason, nor the Platinum Collections. I'm still on the Golden Collections. If they happen to put out the complete Bugs someday, which looks likely to be coincidence as much as intention with this creative direction, I might bite. But I'm not a casual fan. This isn't for me, but I'm happy for those who will enjoy it.

I'll still be waiting for a definitive Bugs anthology. May be a long wait. I can't understand why the famous 'Rhapsody Rabbit', an acknowledged animation classic, is still missing in action. At least I have it on DVD.

WB has to save stuff for the other anniversary sets to come in the future.

"Person to Bunny" released in 1960 was the last cartoon where Elmer Fudd was voiced by Arthur Q. Bryan. Per Wikipedia he died in November 1959, 5 months before the cartoon was released.

Here is a clip from a cartoon where Arthur Q. Bryan is voicing both Elmer and a tired business man. He uses his actual voice as the business man.

Grabbed my pre-order from Amazon for the time being though I’m waiting to see if BullMoose will be carrying it as I’m sure they will be since I’m a bigger fan of their packaging and there quicker in shipping. Not a super fan of the Funko and wish they would’ve just kept it Funko free as it looks nothing like Bugs or none that I’m familiar with in my almost 30 years of watching Bugs. The Scooby Funko didn’t look super great but was better than this
