    Has anyone revealed if WB sold enough copies of Porky 101 to greenlight more classic releases? After hearing that classic animation on DVD was dead, Poky 101 was a nice surprise and I hope we get more. I'd certainly love to be able to get all the unreleased Bugs and Daffy cartoons on disc, for example.

    I wanted to buy the DVD and I might get it on Monday or Tuesday, which I'm excited about. I would love to see a Daffy Duck 101.

    I would also like Daffy 101. There are exactly 101 Daffy shorts from the Golden age (1937-1965) if you exclude the rather boring Speedy Gonzales shorts.

    I had no idea Daffy had exactly 101 classic shorts! That's serendipity, WB!

    I certainly don't mind buying a lot of double-dipped cartoons if they release all the others we don't have with them.

    Fizzles, I'm really happy with Porky 101. Sure, there are some glitches, but nothing that really bothers me. It's just great to have all of those cartoons, in good condition, in one place, and be able watch them in sequential order. I adore the Golden Collections, but I hope we can get some more comprehensive releases like Porky 101 out of WB before they give up these projects altogether.

    They haven't released sales figures for obvious reasons, but Jerry Beck revealed on the latest Stu's Show that, yes, Porky Pig 101 finally got enough sales to reach the threshold that WB needed to justify more releases. No further Warner Archive cartoon releases have been announced yet, though.
