I am looking forward very much to having these classics finally on DVD. Bushy Hare is one of my favorite Bugs cartoons.
Guess the marketing numbers showed that single disc, character themed releases were the way to go. I'll gladly pick these up and place them next to my Golden Collections, especially since there are no repeated films.
It should be noted that tvshowsondvd just retracted their contents listing at the request of Warner Bros. I'll leave my original post up, but now all bets are off regarding the actual shorts.
Well, here's hoping that whatever 30 films they are they are indeed not repeats of the Golden Collection films.
as stated as long as its not repeats these are mine as well, but i was really hoping for something so much bigger, they have really scaled down on the great releases, never going to see another Tarzan collection, maybe i should just be happy that these are not archive collection i guess. but it seems that all the great anouncements never seem to get finished, where are the rest of the Popeyes? The long rumored Tex Avery set?, WB when the Golden Collection went away, i was expecting the next big thing, 1080p, 4 disc, looks like it will just have to wait, like my missing Woody Woodpecker, or the Tom & Jerrys that were left off for censorship reasons.
More great news!! Thanks WB!!!
I really hope that Bushy Hare and Which is Witch are still going to be included.
TVShowsOnDVD just updated with a new post. Apparently the original list of shorts was incorrect. The new list as it appears on WHV's internal site is....
While we lost Which is Witch the list did keep Bushy Hare.
Interesting! When I first saw the artwork, I thought we were doomed for re-releases, but this is a pleasant surprise. My only disappointment is that I'm frankly tired of Bugs & Daffy - I want a Foghorn collection. I'll be picking this up nonetheless.
I'm surprised one of the most popular 1950s shorts featuring Bugs, Hare-Way to the Stars, still has yet to be released on DVD. It didn't make it on the Golden Collections, and I had hope it might make it on these first two Looney Tunes Super Stars.
If there aren’t any extras included in this new series of sets, I will greatly miss the audio commentaries and the music and effects only tracks.
TVShowsOnDVD is still speculating on what cartoons will be included. The finalized list should be posted at Cartoon Brew. I'll wait for that.
Fingers crossed that Which is Witch is still included. It is a great Friz Freleng short that has rarely been aired on television.
Nice to see these are continuing and not in the archive series.
At least they are starting to release some more Looney Tunes. Hopefully, there won't be repeats of cartoons from the "Golden Collection" series as other posters have stated.
We already know these are new-to-DVD. See post #10. Also verified by Jerry Beck on Cartoon Brew.
Cartoon Brew lists the same films TVShowsOnDVD did in their revision, meaning a few cartoons have indeed been dropped. Jerry Beck says the dropped films were due to restoration issues. Beck also mentions a few other things: both he and WB are aiming to eventually restore and release the entire library of Looney Tunes and Merry Melodies. These two new DVDs are aimed at everyone, collectors and families alike (both the Golden Collections and Spotlight Collections were too expensive for the average consumer). He is involved with the planning of future releases and additional titles can be expected later this year. There are plans for Looney Tunes on Blu-ray. http://www.cartoonbrew.com/dvd/new-looney-tunes-dvds-in-april.html
Happy as I am for the Blu-ray folks, there's a real possibility that Warner will get distracted by the shiny new bauble and never actually get all of these out on disc. I'm more than a little fed up with this ridiculous treadmill where we just regurgitate the same stuff ad infinitum.
By this, it appears that the so-called "Censored 11" will eventually be restored
