    Dunno. But that's another story, so let's get back on-topic.

    These releases of Looney Tunes and Merry Melodies seem to be incredibly scattershot.

    Two of the first releases of 2013 from Warner Archive Collection, but as we know, there's lot's more to go. I'd like to see Filmation-produced My Favorite Martians, Tarzan Lord of the Jungle, The New Adventures of Gilligan, Rankin-Bass' Comic Strip, Ruby-Spears-produced Police Academy: The Series and scores more of classic Hanna-Barbera and Warner Bros. Animation shows see DVD releases, but all in due time. Let's stay on top of this.

    Pac-Man: The Complete Second Season was released a couple or so months ago. You also forgot Dragon's Lair: The Complete Series.

    As for the animated Police Academy, I believe that was released just recently as well.

    Personally, I would be interested in that series Wildfire (not the ABC Family drama, but the Hanna-Barbera series from 1986)...

    Gotcha. Thanks, I will amend the list.

    I agree about Wildfire. I remember that series, and if you pay attention to current animated stuff, the DCNAtion shorts Amethyst are very much like that show.

    Under "Still awaiting", I've noticed that you put "The Harlem Globetrotters" with Super Globetrotters in parentheses. I'm not sure what you meant, but there are two separate series, one about The Harlem Globetrotters (this show features the versions of the Globetrotters that appeared in those two New Scooby-Doo Movies episodes), and one about the Super Globetrotters (in which three of them are expies of The Impossibles*). As I understand, the former show was a co-production with CBS, and as a result, that one is controlled by what is now CBS Television Distribition, which means Warner Bros. can't release that one. OTOH, Warner Bros. can release the latter show since that falls under the Turner library.

    *Or at least two of them. Spaghetti Man seems to be the closest equivalent to Coil Man from the Impossibles.

    Warner Archive is planning a DVD release of the 1960s Popeye TV shorts.

    Now, it's important to to note that as with The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show (which Warner Bros. only has the home video rights to), the Popeye shorts made in the 1960s for TV (which had been previously released by Koch Vision) don't come from either Warner Bros. or Turner Entertainment. They are owned by Hearst Entertainment (along with The All New Popeye Hour, and Popeye and Son, both of which were made by Hanna-Barbera), which is a subsidiary of King Features Syndicate, who owns the characters. In other words, this is being released under license, which means that Hearst ultimately has the final say on how long Warner Archive can continue to offer it. One word from them (Hearst), and it could be discontinued just like that.

    For these reasons, I personally think we should get these releases (this is just the first of what I'm sure would be many) as they come out. It might encourage them to release the other two Popeye shows I mentioned...

    Seems like a Popeye and Son DVD set isn't that far behind.
