Countdown to Volume 5 - Part 2

November 2, 2004 brought us the second volume of the LT Golden Collection. This set featured discs devoted to Tweety and the Road Runner, most likely because those cartoons had already been prepared for DVD release in non-US markets (Japan, for example, already had their own series of Tweety DVDs for awhile before the first Golden Collection was ever released in the United States). Even though it wasn't even mentioned in the trailer below, the newly created short, "Daffy Duck For President", was a big selling point that was really played up online (a special website was set up just to promote the short... which is actually still online to this day).




That is probably the only time in history you'll ever hear the phrases "masterful documentary" and "Bugs Bunny's All-Star 50th Anniversary produced by Lorne Michaels" in the same sentence...

This trailer's restoration examples are even more brilliant - for "Baby Bottleneck", it crossfades from a crappy TV print to...a slightly less crappy TV print.
