    I've always wondered, which one you liked best.

    Also, why did WB separate their cartoons based off 1948, they should have split based after the Schlesinger era.

    If that happened, then everything would be Sunset: BW
    AAP: pre-Goldilocks and the Jivin' Bears (if this happened, Golidlocks and the Jivin' bears wouldn't be in the censored 11, which it shouldn't be anyways) (All the cartoons in the censored 11 are not offensive in any way. They just used different types of faces, which people seem to take too literally)
    post-1944: post-Buckaroo Bugs

    Would this be a good alternate package, if this ever happened in time?

    My favorites would be the pre-48 cartoons with caricatures of Movie Stars. The reason A.A.P. bought the cartoons up to 1948 was because that year had a significance regarding the Screen Actors Guild. It was the same reason that the AAP purchase of live action Warner films went to (roughly) '48, and MCA's purchase of Paramount films did likewise. Think C&C and RKO films was the same deal, not sure.

    Such a tough decision.

    I also wonder why WB only gave them 16mm prints and not the original negatives themselves. It makes no sense that if WB has the original negative, they could just sell the cartoons in restored print. Turner could have done these himself if the original negatives were present.

    Why? I mean I love both packages the bw, not so much. Porky was too tedious in the cartoons back then.

    The pre-1948 cartoons were filled with music, classic animation. Loads of fun, except for the 1931-33 and 1934-35 Merrie Melodies, I found those dull and a waste of time for AAP to buy those.

    The post-1948 had some of the best cartoons in cartoon history. Bugs, Daffy, Sylvester, Tweety, Elmer, Porky, Foghorn Leghorn, Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote, made it happen.

    AAP and then UA DID have 35MM materials on the cartoons, but they were housed in Japan! The 31-33 Melodies simply came with the package. Guild Films bought the 34-35 Melodies, not AAP.

    Well but I never mentioned the Sunset package. The 1931-33 are part of the turner package.
