Are they still restoring "Blue Ribbon" original title cards as much as possible on these remaster sets?

How can we forget "TWEETY Pie"? Not just the film of that title, but the later one where he actually appeared in the automat compartment with that label.

I myself have to look and found out what the exact criteria are. I wanted to put up the entire Daffy Duck and Porky Pig meet the Groovie Goolies special up, but I see someone has the live action portion only up (this features the Goolies, with a brief appearance of Sylvester, Foghorn and Pepe watchi...

My nostalgia with the Looney Tunes was the network shows. Bugs Bunny-Roadrunner still had the inbetween segments from the original Bugs Bunny Show, and that was interesting, as it continued the interplay between the characters (including characters not seen together in the films). I had wished Kids ...

I always liked the score for the final 10. I used to imagine it playing as I ran to the train for school everyday. It was similar to Dean Elliot's "Matinee Mouse" theme.

Open letter to Time Warner and CN

Just e-mailed this today. Plan to send a "snail-mail" backup as well. I wished I could have gotten everyone's "signatures" and all: Dear Sirs: I and other fans of classic WB cartoons have noticed not only how rarely the WB library is aired on Cartoon Network or Boomerang (and never on CW), but also ...

I second (OK, third) Fibber Fox's and Nick's theory that the skunk in "Odor of the Day" wasn't intended to be Pepe LePew. He seems just like a generic cartoon skunk to me. He does kind of resemble Pepe in terms of character design but then, that could be because a) Davis may have borrowed Jones' DE...

Not only was Davis doing "One Shots", but also these odd uses of some of the characters. Like the two "dumb" Sylvesters, and the Pepe LePew with a totally different format. Still, this was intersting, and perhaps he would have stayed out of the formulaic rut the units fell into, where virtually ever...

In fact, as I think of it, by ridding him of his last Eggheadisms in "A Wild Hare", Tex Avery effectively recreated Elmer as Porky Pig with a human makeover... Elmer does resemble Porky a bit. They both have large round heads with babyish cheeks and little noses. They are both short and have the sa...

Interesting to note that Clampett was the first person to use the "predator uses various devices to catch prey" story that you describe in "A Tale of Two Kitties". Yeah, but that doesn't dominate the whole LTMM series at that point. And even then, notice that the very end is really not that bad for...
