Dunno. But that's another story, so let's get back on-topic.
According to Animation World Network, Bugs Bunny Superstar (the combination documentary/anthology film from 1975) is coming to DVD today, October 30th.
I already own the film on Golden Collection Vol. 4, so I pass.
These releases of Looney Tunes and Merry Melodies seem to be incredibly scattershot.
So, here's an update on new stuff for those interested:

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.

Please correct me if I'm missing something.
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.
Personally, I still wait for a DVD of the the complete series of The Cattanooga Cats
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.
I added Heathcliff to the already released, and Yogi's Gang to the still awaiting.
I just remembered that Sony released some of their titles through WAC. Should I include this on the list?

Do you happen to know how long this Sony Pictures Choice Collection sub-program has been going on?
EDIT: Hmm, wikipedia says April 13, 2011. Sound right?
Might be of interest to some of you fans of H-B old school:

Toonzone reports Yogis gang coming this month.
Surprisingly lack of Scooby-Doo but I'm not complaining, that dog gets plenty of releases. Still it would have made sense to include 1 episode. Seems like a decent showcase overall considering it is just 2 discs.
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.
I'm still waiting for Warner Archive to release on DVD:
Road Rovers - The Complete Series
Waynehead - The Complete Series
Detention - The Complete Series
