Shameless Shilling

I am sure everyone is busy watching their brand-new copies Looney Tunes Golden Collection, Vol. 6 which was released yesterday. What?? Don't have a copy yet?? Look no further than the Amazon link box thingy on your right! Or, if you head to a Best Buy store, they have a version of this DVD set packaged with an exclusive pocket-sized edition of Jerry Beck's book Looney Tunes: The Ultimate Visual Guide. (Yeah, I am sure most of our readers already own the full-size edition, but the freebie could make a nice stocking stuffer this holiday season).

When your eyeballs need a break from all those cartoons, head on over to the annual Golden Collection Talkback thread on the Golden Age Cartoons Forums.

UPDATE:

I don't THINK you need much convincing to buy this DVD set if you're reading this blog, but just in case you haven't snagged a copy yet, here are some images that will remove any doubts you may have! On the left, the old VHS and TV versions we all know and love(d). On the right, the new DVD!

Thanks for uploading the screenshots from the original and Volume 6. I can't wait for November. The suspense is killing me!

Jon, Matthew:

I just took a look at the version of Russian Rhapsody that's on Youtube (it must be from a VHS or a laserdisc from the pre-Dubbed version days.)

Hitler's uniform is clearly brown on the youtube copy (just like on the restored DVD). So I think the discrepancy in colors doesn't mean that the DVD's are wrong.
