    Oddly enough here in Italy we get the Daffy & Speedy overkill when we see Looney Tunes, unlike in other countries.

    I have all of them in perfect quality.

    It would be nice to see Michigan J Frog for once.

    It would be nice if Boomerang didn't leave Looney Tunes shorts on autopilot. Personally, I think should straddle in more of late 30's and 40's WB shorts (even if they're edited).

    It would be nice if they could add some Harmon-Ising shorts from the 30s because I'm getting tired of seeing late 40s to late 60s shorts. They should put some diversity in the shorts they're playing. My 100th Message!

    I haven't watched Boomerang (UK) in a long time, though I do remember their showings of Looney Tunes being somewhat limited. They had an odd habit of airing shorts from the DePatie-Freleng era quite frequently.

    @Lock n' Stock Good thing you haven't then. Since 2015 they replaced all the shorts they had with heavily edited HD remasters. Pretty much all the shorts which haven't been remastered yet are not shown, any slightly politically incorrect short is not shown and anything else is chopped to pieces to take off all the gunshots, smoking and such.

    That's why in fact I'm constantly hunting for pre 2015 recordings of Looney Tunes airings.

    As for Boomerang Italy, they have a lot of old B&W shorts in their list but no one shots. They must have the tapes somewhere, considering how anything was dubbed into Italian.

    Does anyone have a master list of what shorts are actually in the Boomerang (US) rotation?
