It seems that Warner Home Video has lied to us about not repeating any Golden Collection Cartoons in this new Looney Tunes Super Stars series. I also assume Jerry Beck has lost his say on what goes into these DVDs. Japan got a new set of Tweety DVDs that feature cartoons not issued on DVD in the U.S. There are still 25 Tweety & Sylvester cartoons not released to DVD in the U.S.
This 4th Super Stars DVD release was originally going to be a Porky Pig set until Warner thought it would be mostly B&W cartoons from the 1930's. By my count there are 10 Porky Pig color cartoons & 10 Porky Pig & Daffy Duck color cartoons not released yet, so that argument doesn't hold.
The official statement from Warner Home Video:
"The first two releases of the Looney Tunes Super Stars series were enthusiastically received by consumers and we are thrilled to offer these next two installments from the series," said Amit Desai, WHV Vice President of Family, Animation and Partner Brands Marketing. He added, "This series gives us a chance to showcase some of the most popular Looney Tunes characters in their own collections, and to bring out some wonderful material that we've not had the opportunity to put on DVD before. These collections are must-haves for any Looney Tunes fans and animation lovers."
Hmm, even their Vice President of Family, Animation and Partner Brands Marketing (wow what a title to have) doesn't have a clue these are not new.
Well there are some false accounts in his statement as I understand this Super Stars DVD series has been discontinued, a few more characters are going to get their own discs along with more double-dip re-issues.
The budget for restoration work on the Looney Tunes cartoons has run out, that is why there are re-issues here.
