    If I were given a choice to pick 16 shorts that are not on DVD yet I'd go for....

    1. A Lad in his lamp
    2. Hare lift
    3. Pikers Peak
    4. Along came Daffy
    5. Beep Prepared
    6. the Goofy Gophers
    7. Beanstalk Bunny
    8. Zoom at the top
    9. Hare Breadth Hurry
    10. I Gopher You
    11. It's nice to have a Mouse about the House
    12. Rabbit's Feat
    13. Go Away Stowaway
    14. Tease for Two
    15. Compressed Hare
    16. Fair Hared Hare.

    They're just my choice of my faves I guess if I had a 17th choice (as the pepe disc shows 17 on a disc is fine) I'd probably put a Tweety cartoon on there.

    Daffy Doodles needs to be released already. It's one of the best, and it was sparsely released on even VHS.

    From what I know a lot of Art Davis' stuff hasn't been released yet either.

    The Warner Bros. shorts I'd like to be on DVD that aren't:

    Any shorts that were on Laserdisc:

    1. Sport Chumpions
    2. Dog Tired
    3. Of Thee I Sting
    4. Ain't That Ducky, to name some.

    Also, shorts such as, Dog Tales, Piker's Peak and Beanstalk Bunny, too, would be nice for DVDs.

    Almost what ever not released on DVD. If Warner had no more money to do anymore restoration work on Looney Tunes shorts they could appear in unrestored form.

    These are some shorts that deserve a DVD release, restored if possible. If Warner lacked money to restore them, unrestored transfers may be used. All cartoons, if unrestored, use the unrestored original negatives except for a few exceptions. B&W cartoons shall be in their original B&W form, NOT colorized in any form.

    The DVD released must have all cartoons COMPLETELY UNCUT AND UNCENSORED.

    (*) - If unrestored, the Dubbed 1995 version would be used.
    (#) - If unrestored, the 1997/1998 Dubbed version would be used.

    Note that for some pre-48 shorts if they would appear unrestored on DVD dubbed 1995 versions are not recommended and instead should use the original negatives; because some dubbed versions look really bad (e.g. Hop, Skip, & A Chump, Dog Tired) and some already have cuts in the prints (in such cartoons, no uncut copies of these dubbed 1995 versions exist, e.g. I Taw A Putty Tat, Believe It Or Else, Aviation Vacation)

    Yay another vote for Hair-Breadth Hurry.
    In Jerry Beck's google lecture he doesn't rate it highly, I wonder if that is why it never turned up on a DVD so far.

    Detouring America has an uncensored dubbed version. It's really good, the colors are nice and the opening rings look like they were released on DVD. Not bad for a dubbed version.

    I've compiled several lists, a total of 20, of how Warner Bros. could release more cartoons in a new home video series (A successor to the GC/PC). One of the lists is full of 1930s Merrie Melodies and is as follows (Please note that some Harman and Ising MMs are on some of my other lists):

    Main Cartoons:

    "Pagan Moon"
    "Goopy Geer"
    "It's Got Me Again!" (Restored this time)
    "The Queen Was in the Parlor"
    "I Love a Parade" (Restored this time)
    "Three's a Crowd"
    "One Step Ahead of My Shadow" (If they're ballsy enough)
    "Young and Healthy"
    "Wake Up the Gypsy in Me"
    "I Like Mountain Music" (Restored this time)
    "Sittin' On a Backyard Fence" (Restored this time)
    "Pettin' in the Park"
    "Honeymoon Hotel"
    "Beauty and the Beast"
    "Rhythm in the Bow"
    "Those Beautiful Dames"
    "Pop Goes Your Heart"
    "My Green Fedora"

    That's just an idea for one disk in a volume of four. The main cartoons will be restored as always, I only put the brackets next to the ones that were put on previous collections without restoration. The bonus cartoons, on the other hand, will only be restored based on three things: time allowed, quality of the cartoon, and restoration budget. I would also like for all the bonuses to be restored, but remember, it costs thousands of dollars to restore these things, and it takes a lot of sold copies to fill the budget back up for more restorations.

    Suggestion of name for new Looney Tunes DVD/Blu-Rays: Looney Tunes Diamond Collection

    I think WB should really go back to restoring the cartoons carefully and with love just like what they did for the Looney Tunes Golden Collection, the Academy Awards Animation Collection DVDs and the I Love Tweety Japanese DVDs, rather than restoring the cartoons aggressively and forcefully to the point that they have been restored to death just like what happened to the cartoons on the Platinum Collection Vol. 2 and 3 Blu-Rays.

    No altered fade-outs, no dark colors, no abused grain removal, no DVNR. 100% perfectly flawless restorations are what its supposed to be.

    Here's how to start off this new DVD/Blu-Ray series with the first volume:

    Looney Tunes Diamond Collection Vol 1.
    Disc 1: Best Of Bugs Bunny
    1. Fresh Hare
    2. The Unruly Hare

    7. The Goofy Gophers
    8. Hare Splitter
    9. Hot Cross Bunny
    10. A Feather In His Hare
    11. A-Lad-In His Lamp

    5. Daffy Doodles
    6. Brother Brat
    7. One Meat Brawl (restored)
    8. Slightly Daffy
    9. Along Came Daffy
    10. Little Orphan Airedale
    11. Mexican Joyride
    12. Nothing But The Tooth

    3. Greedy For Tweety
    4. Tweety's Circus
    5. Fowl Weather
    6. Tweet and Lovely

    8. Tweet Zoo
    9. A Pizza Tweety Pie
    10. Tree Cornered Tweety

    Don't they waste more money restoring it the Platinum way? I love the Golden Collection way the best, and i prefer the 1998 dubbed version to the PC way. PC is good, but i dont like the altered fade out.

    I think overall bonus toons should be restored, if they cant be restored, they can use 1995 dubbed version. However, i would wish for the bonus cartoons to be ones that were NEVER issued on DVD ever.

    Yes, the Platinum Collection restorations are more costly. That is why I mentioned WB should go back to restoring the Golden Collection way.

    Sometimes, cartoons that were originally issued unrestored/as dubbed versions as bonus cartoons on DVD were later presented restored on another DVD. For example, Hippety Hopper (1949) was presented as the unrestored Blue Ribbon print on Golden Collection Volume 6, is later presented restored on the Sylvester & Hippety Hopper DVD.
    Lets put this example in the planned Looney Tunes Diamond Collection DVD for example; "Tweet Dreams" presented as an unrestored bonus cartoon on Vol 1, appears restored on later volumes of this set.

    If you look at the contents for the "bonus cartoons" section of the planned LTDC Vol 1, Run, Run, Sweet Road Runner, Tweet Dreams, Daffy's Rhapsody and Flash In The Pain were not released on DVD before. His Hare-Raising Tale was previously released as a bonus feature of Bugs Bunny's Easter Funnies DVD, but is without the opening and closing rings. LTPC's version of the short as a bonus feature will have the cartoon's Blue Ribbon opening and closing rings intact.

    I haven't included any 1998 dubbed versions in Diamond Collection yet because while Disc 1 focuses entirely on new-to-DVD Bugs Bunny cartoons of the 1940s (7 from the a.a.p. package, 5 from the post-48 WB package), Disc 2 focuses majorly on Daffy Duck/Porky Pig cartoons from the pre-1948 package plus 2 B&W Porky Pig cartoons of the 1940s, Disc 3 has almost all the Tweety/Sylvester cartoons restored for the Japanese DVDs which were not yet released on any USA DVDs, and Disc 4 has all the Chuck Jones Road Runner cartoons not yet restored plus two Road Runner cartoons by Chuck Jones previously released on DVD and one Bugs Bunny/Wile E. Coyote cartoon "Hare-Breadth Hurry" as filler. To sum this up, all but 3 cartoons are new to DVD (excluding the bonus shorts). These three shorts which are double-dipped (albeit with slight differences from previous restorations) are Daffy Duck and Egghead, Fast and Furry-Ous and Beep Prepared. Meanwhile What's Cookin' Doc, Fresh Hare, Racketeer Rabbit, Hare Splitter, Hot Cross Bunny, Brother Brat, Daffy Doodles, One Meat Brawl and War and Pieces were previously released on DVD, but on LTDC Vol 1 they will be presented restored and remastered unlike their previous DVD releases which presents them unrestored/as 1995 dubbed versions.
