I picked up this set on sale locally, which made it a good deal.

The colors always seemed a little washed out and faded.

I made no secret of my distaste for the censored version of the Tom and Jerry shorts available on the Tom and Jerry - Spotlight Collection DVD. Not only was history whitewashed to satisfy the PC Brigade (just who ARE these people anyway?) they were also in shocking condition with lots of dirt and scratches and generally terrible picture quality.

All is now fixed for this Blu Ray release from Warner, presenting the first 37 shorts, in chronological order, with brand new 1080p transfers from the best 35mm materials, Dolby 5.1 sound (HD sound is not confirmed at the time of writing, but these cartoons WERE released in Mono anyway and DD 5.1 is still a notable upgrade) and, most importantly, UN-EDITED AND UN-CENSORED. You will finally be able to see the REAL Mammy-Two-Shoes voiced by Lillian Randolph, and various other 'racially inflammatory' visual jokes.

The cartoons included are:

Puss Gets The Boot
The Midnight Snack
The Night Before Christmas
Fraidy Cat
Dog Trouble
Puss N' Toots
The Bowling Alley Cat
Fine Feathered Friend
Sufferin' Cats
The Lonesome Mouse
The Yankee Doodle Mouse
Baby Puss
The Zoot Cat
The Million Dollar Cat
The Body Guard
Puttin On The Dog
Mouse Trouble
The Mouse Comes To Dinner
Mouse In Manhattan
Tee For Two

Springtime For Thomas
The Milky Waif
Trap Happy
Solid Serenade

Clark Douglas, DVD Verdict --The first attribute is the chronological structure, which I imagine many fans (myself included) will be thrilled about. The first 37 Tom and Jerry theatrical shorts (beginning with their 1940 debut "Puss Gets the Boot" and continuing through the 1948 installment "Professor Tom") are presented in order over two Blu-ray discs, and it finally gives us an easy way to observe the subtle evolution of the characters over the years. The first impression one gets from watching these early Hanna-Barbera installments is that the famously antagonistic dynamic between the characters was firmly in place from the very beginning; there aren't any of those odd early shorts in which the characters feel like mere shadows of the icons they would eventually become (despite the fact that Tom looks a little strange and is named "Jasper" in his very first outing).

Animation purists will be pleased to note that this collection has indeed preserved the shorts as they were originally released, meaning that some of them do indeed contain moments of racial insensitivity. It's a little startling to see occasional gags with the characters in blackface or moments in which cheap shots are taken at other cultures, but as the disclaimer at the beginning of the disc notes, to remove these moments would be the same as pretending they never existed. They also serve as a valuable peek into the era in which the shorts were made; a snapshot of societal norms which we have thankfully put behind us. Parents may want to use discretion before showing some of these shorts to their kids (at the very least, some of this material might serve as a valuable discussion-starter), but it's for the best that these shorts have been preserved in their original form.

**** - disc #1 (for both quality & content)
***** - disc #2 (for both quality & content)

Unlike Warner Brothers Cartoons that used the "Blue Ribbon Merrie Melodies" logo to tell you that you are watching a re-release print, MGM only put little clues into their titles to give a hint that you are not watching the original.
In this Blu-ray set you will see a variety of logos & title cards which is nice but it also tells us that this is not the way it originally was. Due to a fire in a film archive in the 1970's the original Nitrate Masters are lost, possibly forever. These versions are all that survive.

Here are some clues to look for, the MGM Logo is the biggest clue, followed by the use of the names TECHNICOLOR & PERSPECTA SOUND:

1934 to 1942 = The MGM logo is the regular MGM logo used in feature films,with a BLACK BACKGROUND, followed by a title card that says "AN MGM CARTOON IN TECHNICOLOR". 1960's re-prints dropped the name "TECHNICOLOR" from this title card.
1942 to 1951 = MGM logo has a bright RED background & the ribbon around Leo is BLUE and the name TECHNICOLOR is written out in SCRIPT font. For Tom & Jerry Cartoons, the Tom & Jerry logo varies and the commonly seen one with T&J surrounded by orange & red rings was used in the later 1940's. The early 1940's logo no longer exists in prints, but is pictures in the photo section of this listing.
1952 = MGM logo has a bright RED background & the ribbon around Leo is BLUE and the name TECHNICOLOR is written out in PLAIN font. For Tom & Jerry Cartoons,T&J are surrounded by orange & red rings in their logo.
1953 to 1956 = MGM Logo now has a bright BLUE background. (A few early 1953 cartoons still have the 1952 MGM logo but changed the Tom & Jerry logo.

How do these Tom & Jerry's on Blu-ray compare to the Laser disc ?
They don't. Laser disc is still a 480p format, and the cartoons on them were still not issued uncensored. Laser discs are also bulkier, and demand more storage space, and laser disc players suffer from the same issue all CD/DVD/Blu-Ray players suffer from: the life span of the laser lens.

Need help with Looney Tunes Blu ray collections
None are, because they're made by two completely different studios.

Region Free?
So far, all of WB's blu-ray releases has been region free in the US. I see no reason to think that this release will be any different.
