    It's not certain yet, but either the premire collection is a bare-bones 2-disc set with only the disc 3/4 cartoons or it's just disc 3 and 4 without changes.

    I'm willing to bet that it would be just the cartoons and perhaps a few special features. They should make the 2-disc set featureless to encourage more people to get the massive Gold sets. :d

    If it includes all the cartoons of disc 3,4 of the gold collection, that would be great, extra features if some are scrapped i dont mind .

    The cartoons on discs 3&4 of GOLDEN collection are the same as that contained on the Premiere.

    The Premiere has no special features except a ROM game.
    Translation: Aimed at "kids and families"....

    Don't remember the name of the short, but is the one where Bugs Bunny does the opera performance in this?

    thanks for that Patrick.

    It would take days to get through one disc at a time with those special features, so a real treat then.

    This will help me until Donald Duck is released later on as well

    The Opera short is called "What's Opera Doc?".

    Perhaps it's the one listed above as "What's UP Doc?".

    I'm sure Patrick will chime in soon to clarify.

    What's Up, Doc? is not a typo. It's a cartoon in which Bugs tells his story of becoming a movie star with Elmer Fudd.

    I'm very familiar with the "What's Up Doc?" short. It's also one of my favorites.

    I just found it surprising that "What's Opera Doc?" would be left off and besides, specs have been known to be incorrect occasionally.[​IMG]

    No matter since if "What's Opera Doc?" isn't on this set, I'm sure it will be on the next.

    I can't wait for this set.

    If Warner is reading this, please include a synopsis of each cartoon somewhere in the packaging. Please, Please, Please. I hate having to hunt for the cartoon that I'm looking for. That is my only major gripe against the Disney sets.

    Roger_R are you sure?:

    "The cartoons on discs 3&4 of GOLDEN collection are the same as that contained on the Premiere.
    The Premiere has no special features except a ROM game."

    ---

    My reading of it is that the premiere collection are disks 3 and 4 of the gold set. With the extras as well.

    From digital bits:

    The first thing to know is that Discs One and Two of The Looney Tunes Golden Collection are exclusive to that set, while Discs Three and Four are the same as the two discs in The Looney Tunes Premier Collection


    ---

    I'm planning on only getting the 2 disk version.

    The information in my earlier post is confirmed on the bits

    GOLDEN COLLECTION
    Discs One & Two exclusive
    Discs Three & Four same cartoons as Discs One & Two of
    PREMIERE COLLECTION

    GOLDEN COLLECTION has TONS of Value-Added Material

    PREMIERE COLLECTION has just the cartoons of Disc 3 & 4
    from GOLDEN COLLECTION but with no extras except a ROM game.

    I just fixed the table...it was a bit off. [​IMG]

    I added 5 cartoons that appear in the Bugs Bunny shows that have bumpers added as extras. I only assumed they're part of the program...I'll add more when the info is revealed.

    Does anybody know if there will be a "play all" option on these?

    Not that he needs my help, but Roger Rollins is right about the lack of supplement material on The Premiere Collection.

    Add "Hair-Raising Hare" and "Rabbit of Seville" to the lineup of cartoons on Disc 1 of the Golden Collection. Last night I posted the official press release for these DVDs, and saw them mentioned there.

    The final list of cartoons on the DVD set is up at http://www.thedigitalbits.com/#mytwocents

    The list is quite puzzling in many ways, and suggests that some of the choices were dictated more by what cartoons were available in restored form than by what the best possible choices were. (I mean, I like "Porky Chops" but I wouldn't really expect it to be among the first 56 cartoons released. Ditto for "Elmer's Candid Camera.") And the inclusion of "Dough For the Do-Do" instead of "Porky In Wackyland" can only be chalked up to prejudice against B&W cartoons (there aren't any on this set). And as far as I can see there are only 3 former "Blue Ribbon" cartoons that will have restored titles.

    However, there are some pleasant surprises: "The Ducksters," "Early To Bet", "Frigid Hare." So I'll enjoy the set, but I do hope that WB will introduce more variety (and more restored early cartoons) into future sets. Letting animation historians pick the content would be a plus.
