    Mod's would it be possible to have one thread (preferably this one!) with all the wanted and questioned about Warner Animated product listed, so that perhaps WB can respond through Ron/Parker about outstanding question's that they couldn't answer last night as the animation rep wasn't there?

    I'll start the ball rolling:

    Is there any news on the rumoured Tex Avery set?

    Why does their animated TV product, such as Batman TAS, have inferior picture quality when compared to their feature film releases that seem to always be as pristine as possible (WB animated material seem's to regularly suffer from debris, noise...) are they just using existing made-for-TV master's?

    When are we going to get a replacement for the three tom and jerry shorts that were cut on the volume one spotlight set? These were labelled on the package as unedited...why also are the majority of shorts on that set covered in debris, dust, marks when they're advertised on the box as fully restored (especially considering the 3 'scope toon's are pristine).

    Warner's response to these three issue's, and many more i'm sure, would be greatly appreciated. Would also like to say what a great job they're doing with the Looney Tunes box sets.

    Great questions. I wonder if we'll ever see some of the 80's Hanna Barbera cartoons (Smurfs, Thundarr the Barbarian, etc.)?

    Well, there's theatrical animated product and TV animated product, which are divided by decades of time and a chasm of production quality and belong on separate HT forums, but if the mods and the members would like them in one thread, I'm good. [​IMG]

    Mark, not sure where you're coming from concerning the image quality of B:TAS. These transfers are stellar. Are you, perhaps, reacting to the cel dust (easily seen over the dark backgrounds used on the show), which is part of the photographed image?

    Any issues you have about television product needs to be discussed in the proper area of the forum which isn't this one.

    Mark, don't forget about the wonderful MGM HAPPY HARMONIES series as well.

    This deserves to be on DVD alongside all the other product from Warners classic film library.

    And ALSO when is Volume 2 going to be released? Hopefully it won't be canceled because of all of these problems or fear of the Mammy Two shoes shorts.

    I'd like to see the Droopy shorts get released. Not to mention the Tom & Jerry Kids show.

    Any chance we'll see Tiny Toon Adventures, Animaniacs and Pinky and the Brain on DVD?

    Does Warner still own the video rights to Ralph Bakshi's "Hey, Good Lookin'"?

    Any chance will see the unsold pilot of "Gizmo and the Gremlins" on DVD, maybe as an extra?
