Sponsor Shout-Out: Warner Bros.

Thank you to Warner Bros. who has sponsored our site for the past couple weeks. They are promoting The Jetsons Season 2 Volume 1 dvd. The company continues to be ambitious in making available the library of cartoons it owns. Recent releases include the Fleischer’s Superman shorts, Chuck Jones’s Tom & Jerry shorts, and a couple sets of Saturday morning cartoons from the Sixties and Seventies. For info about all of their video releases, visit the Warner Home Video website.

    Gotta give it up to WB for getting the cartoons out there!

    Now when are we gonna get that DEXTER’S LAB DVD set…??

    WB is really doing a bang up job. Can’t wait to get my hands on my copy of the Chuck Jones Tom and Jerry set next week!

    Chris,

    I second that! I’d love to have a Dexter set.

  • Kevin Martinez

    I second Chris’ comment. More importantly, when are we going to get more Looney Tunes and Popeye? or a properly done Tom and Jerry set?

    PLEASE!!!>>>> HERCULOIDS COMPLETE DVD SET!!! PLEASE!!!!! (i’ll buy 5 !)

  • Joe Torcivia

    In the event anyone from Warner reads this post and its comments, please release future volumes of THE HUCKLEBERRY HOUND SHOW!

    And my compliments on the Saturday Morning Cartoons 1960s set!

  • Mark McD

    Yes! There has to be some inkling by this date on the format and direction of future Looney Tunes and Popeye releases. I know the Brewmasters are connected to the DVD production and are thus under non-disclosure, but is Warners making _any_ announcement?

    I have been enjoying the new Jetsons DVD set, as well as the previous WB Tom and Jerry/Hanna-Barbera collections over the years. I’d also like to see them finish both The Jetsons and The Huckleberry Hound Show on DVD.

    More Looney Tunes would be nice, but I’d prefer to see complete Bugs Bunny, Porky Pig and Daffy Duck sets rather than the mish-mash of the good, bad and mediocre that was the Golden/Spotlight Collections.

    JETSONS second season? Are these the weird 1980s episodes with Orbitty? I thought there was only one season produced in the 1960s.

    Warners is doing a great job on these exciting sets. I hope we can expect a full MGM set with Harmon/Ising Happy Harmonies and Tex Avery shorts including Screwy Squirrel, Barney Bear, Peace on Earth, etc. The Droopy set was great.

  • Bryan

    I’m dying for complete Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies and complete Tex Avery at MGM releases! Loved the Droopy set, but I felt the noise reduction was overdone, washing out some of the animation detail.

    For LT/MM, my hope is that the WB does chronological releases staggered by decade – the first set could be The Chronological 1950s Vol 1, the second set could be The 1940s Vol 1, the next set The 1950s Vol 2, then The 1930s Vol 1, The 1940s Vol 2, The 1950s Vol 3, The 1960s Vol 1, etc. This way, the WB isn’t locked into starting with the 1930s, which would have appeal only to hardcore animation fans. Plus, from a business perspective the WB has to know that there’d be diminishing returns for them past the Bugs Bunny shorts. Sure, Daffy, Tweety, and Road Runner/Coyote sets would still sell, but not to the same extent, and Pepe Le Pew, Foghorn Leghorn, and Porky Pig sets would see even lower sales, etc.

    Debbie, my worry with character sets is that all the LT/MM shorts won’t get released – the b/w ’30s shorts, minor character shorts (Claude Cat, Goofy Gophers, Hubie & Bertie, Frisky Puppy, Charlie Dog, Sam Sheepdog & Ralph Wolf, Beaky Buzzard, Three Bears, Marc Antony & Pussyfoot, etc), and all the one-shot shorts would either get ignored or limited releases. I so badly want a complete collection of LT/MM shorts on my DVD/BR rack – that’s my holy grail of animation.
