Let me start by thanking WB for releasing the first three Golden Collections which I bought and have enjoyed immensely. I also plan to purchase volume 4 when it is released.

However, all of us have favorites that haven't made it to tiny, shiny disc yet.

Since we are over a year away from volume 5 coming out, perhaps a nudge from us now can get WB to consider our wishes for that next release.

My top choices for inclusion are:

Ali Baba Bunny
Hare Brush
High Note
Hasty Hare
Hare-Way To The Stars
Mad As A Mars Hare
Duck Dodgers And The Return Of The 24 1/2 Century
Spaced Out Bunny

(can you spot who my favorite character is?)

I second CHOW HOUND...

and would add more Jones:
PUNCH TRUNK
MUCH ADO ABOUT NUTTING
DOG GONE SOUTH

and McKimson:
A FRACTURED LEGHORN
A-LAD-IN-HIS-LAMP (Jim Backus as a loud-mouth genie. I haven't seen it in fifteen years, but remember it fondly as one of my favorites.)

and certainly a disc devoted to the more controversial WW2-era shorts would be a good thing.

Count me in for wanting some of the very un-PC stuff like Coal Black.

It doesn't really matter to me what the specific contents are, I'd just like an interesting mix.

I would love to see the 'Wartime Cartoons' and the infamous 'Banned 11' on the next release. They can probably put all 11 on one disc with some documentaries and such, as well as a few of the more un-PC cartoons to pad the numbers out. Just present them in the proper context and such.

Thanks for the link to finally be able to view this cartoon that I have heard about for years but had never seen.

Update :The cartoon has been removed.

Without wishing to dampen the thread, Jerry Beck who consulted for WB on LT sorted out the running order for the 1st 10 box sets years ago! Your too late, I would imagine the state of elements and the order of restoration also played a big part in determining what gets released when.

glad to see so much desire for Chow Hound up here. A wonderfully dark little short - Jones at his best.

The rest of the Bugs/Wile E. shorts would be amazing - particularly the pun-filled one whose name currently slips my mind.

More 1930-1935 shorts. Plus, I wonder if they're going to get to something like "Bugs Bunny's Christmas Carol" from 1979? -- that would also be great! So far, they have done a pretty good job of covering most of the years & styles, so I'd be happy with whatever they have planned... If Jerry Beck really did decide which ones would be released in what order years ago, then it would be nice if they could just release that list now for the first 10 volumes! --(after 10 volumes, I'm sure they'd be left with dismal garbage, and maybe before volume 10)

If Warner's is following any running order layed out by Jerry Beck in selecting the cartoons for its Looney Tunes collections, they are obviously making a huge exception. In the Complete Illustrated Guide to Warners Brothers Cartoons, which Beck co-authored with Will Friedwald, it is stated as follows: "Coal Black is a Bob Clampett masterpiece, and certainly one of the greatest Warner Bros. cartoons ever made."

Later, in his book "The 50 Greatest Cartoons", Beck ranked Coal Black as the 21st greatest cartoon of all time. Beck ranked only 7 other Warner Brothers cartoons ahead of Coal Black (What's Opera, Doc?, Duck Amuck, Duck Dodgers in the 24 1/2 Century, One Froggy Evening, Porky in Wackyland, Rabbit of Seville, and The Great Piggy Bank Robbery) , thus making Coal Black, in Mr. Beck's opinion, the 8th best Warner Brothers cartoon of all time.

The next two Warner Brothers cartoons on Mr. Beck's all time list were Rabbit Seasoning and The Scarlet Pimpernel, which were ranked by Mr. Beck as numbers 30 and 31 respectively. The last two Warners Brothers cartoons on Mr. Beck's all time list were Book Revue and the Dover Boys, which he ranked respectively as the 45th and 49th greatest cartoons of all time. All the aforementioned cartoons, except for Coal Black, were released in the first two volumes of the Looney Tunes collection. Thus, Warners, appears to have strictly adhered to Mr. Beck's opinions on the quality of the cartoons in choosing which cartoons to release, except when it comes to Coal Black, which has never been released. Thus, they have so far refused to make even a "masterpiece" exception, as they continue to genuflect at the altar of Political Correctness.

1954's "Bewitched Bunny"- as a child, I was alternately fascinated and terrified, not by the witch, but by those truly weird kids- "My name is Hansel! I'm Gretel." Would love to see it again.
