    Nice bonus materials, with a documentary on Mel Blanc!
    The bonus cartoons are good too. Nice to see "Rabbit Rampage."

    The bonus materials aren't real bad. In fact, I might just go as far to say they're great.

    But keep in mind, the bonus cartoons will need to be restored eventually for other future releases. With this in mind, I have thought up a few more DVD sets.

    Wow, extra-skimpy on the commentaries this year. They must have listened to the two people on GAC who said they hated them.

    Still, a pretty nice crop of bonuses! I just hope they're remastered, but if not, I at least hope the prints they use are more than decent.

    I'm really excited about this set as always. There's some really great cartoons on here like my favorite Yosemite toon Hare Trigger and Chow Hounds is hilarious. It's also nice to have some Bosko mixed in with the rest.

    I'm guessing at a change of format/philosophy in the Looney Tunes DVD releases? The "Golden Collections" are aimed at us hardcore fans/historians/collectors/etc. I mean, where else are you gonna find a disc of Bosko and Buddy cartoons? However, like it or not, the mainstream viewer would have little or no interest in Bosko. They want those shorts from the 40's thru the early 60's with Bugs, Daffy, Wile E., Pepe, Taz, and all the usual suspects. I imagine that what we're gonna get from here on out will be catering more to that crowd.


    If you're only gonna have one Pepe cartoon on here, I can think of about a half-dozen that would have been a better choice than "Heaven Scent". Hopefully, that means that they are indeed saving the better Pepe cartoons for something else....

    They could do that, but since they say they don't plan do duplicate cartoons previously released on future sets, it would only last so long until all they were left with was older or more obscure cartoons. That is assuming they still intend to restore and release the entire library of course. I tend to think we'll continue to get kind of a mixed bag just in smaller doses. WB seems to have shifted almost all of their dvd releases to 2 disc sets like all the newer HB sets and the recent change to the Popeye dvd's.
