While Disc Two offers one-shot classics, the complete escapades of Cecil Turtle, the all-purpose adversary Nasty Canasta, bashful little Beaky Buzzard and the hilariously hungry A. Flea. Saving the best for last, Disc Three serves up great fun and insider info with its wild array of bonus programs saluting legendary animators and historical gems. Not to mention a fan-selected favorite that will be sure to satisfy even the most discerning cartoon connoisseur. So grab a chair, a comedy cohort and a carrot 'cause it's always "wabbit" season when this must-own collection comes home!]]>

Disc 1 "What Makes Daffy Duck", "Birdy and the Beast", "Home Tweet Home" (edited version previously on Saturday Morning Cartoons DVD), "The High and the Flighty".
Disc 2 "Porky's Hare Hunt", "Hare-um Scare-um", "Presto-Chango", "The Lion's Busy", "Strife With Father", "A Horsefly Fleas".
Disc 3 TEX AVERY MGM CARTOONS COME TO BLU-RAY (although in STANDARD DEFINITION)!!!! But sorry DVD fans, they will not be in the DVD version.
Since Hi-Defenition transfers were created when restoring the Looney Tunes cartoons for the Golden Collection DVDs it is easy for WBHV to re-issue these on Blu-ray. This doesn't mean that no further restoration work was done, it only means that most are the same film transfers. It will not be like comparing the old Laserdisc & VHS tapes to the Golden collection DVDs. However they will have better resolution than the DVDs so an improvement will be seen.
The "New to DVD" titles will show the most improvement.

I love "Looney Tunes" and I love my Blu-ray and I DON'T MIND paying again for these classics to be remastered so I can see them in 1080p. It's awesome! But to take one of the greatest (if not THE greatest) cartoons of all time, "Red Hot Riding Hood" and slap out on the bonus disc in a standard VHS copy is insulting to me and all the other fans out there. Actually NONE of the content on disc three is in HD so it's NOT a Blu-ray! It's a DVD!
Look, I understand the realities of marketing and customer demand; You can't put all Bugs or Daffy on one set because no one (or very few) would buy Porky or Sylvester. You can't put them in chronological order because the average consumer wouldn't buy the black and whites. I don't expect you to remaster all the documentaries or featurettes BUT the cartoons themselves? There's no excuse except a money grab.
The packaging that Volume two comes in doesn't even match the first one! It's completely different.
I honestly don't understand the WB's complete indifference to the Looney Tunes collections and the Looney Tunes collector. It's a rabid fan base. And as proven time and again there is quite a market for deluxe sets. Why not issue deluxe collector's versions? the Complete Tex Avery!! The Complete Chuck Jones!! The Complete One Shots and Minis! Hell, Just do The Warner Bros and the complete MGM! To big? break 'em down! Complete Looney Tunes 1930-1942, Complete Merrie Melodies 1931-1942.....
All cartoons ReMastered??In 1080p? You'd make a fortune and the fans would be happy.
Unlike how they feel now.
Caveat emptor... suckers!

I only recommend this for those new-to-DVD and Blu Ray cartoona. And it's only for those who want to have the previous release shorts from the Golden Collections and Super Stars on Blu Ray in HD instead.
