Golden Collection, Vol. 6
An early list of contents for the sixth (and final) DVD set in the Looney Tunes Golden Collection series has been posted, along with the cover art, over on TV Shows On DVD. It will be released October 21. There will also be 15 "bonus" cartoons that have not been announced yet.
I am not sure what to think of those contents... a very bizarre assortment of oddities and VERY stingy on the star characters (only TWO Bugs Bunny cartoons!!!? What...?).
UPDATE --- Well, after having the day to chew things over I thought I'd update this original post. My first reaction to the contents was, of course, "Where the heck are all the characters?". Stepping back, I figure I will appreciate what we ARE getting. After all, the character cartoons (Bugs, Daffy, Tweety, Foggy, Road Runner, etc) are too famous to remain unreleased forever. Besides, a bulk of the material on Volume 6 has never been made officially available before, let alone restored. That's worth cheering about.
I hope we will find out what the 15 "bonus" cartoons are soon.
