Americans may not agree on who should be the next president of the United States, but here’s something that’s guaranteed to unite the country: Warner Archive has announced the release of volume 2 of Tex Avery Screwball Classics.
Like the first Blu-ray, which was released earlier this year, the second disc collects theatrical shorts that Tex Avery directed at MGM in the 1940s and ’50s. (At the rate they’re going, a third volume would complete Avery’s filmography at MGM.) If you picked up the first volume, you already know that these shorts have never looked better on a home entertainment release, and that’s because they’re using new 1080p HD masters from 4k scans of archival elements.
In addition to boasting restored and remastered shorts, Warner Archive also promises that the shorts are uncut. In addition to the cartoons, the Blu-ray will offer a bonus, the 1988 documentary Tex Avery: King of Cartoons.
