But how about these ideas:

Transcripts of LT&MM Cartoons

(I could be wrong, but that sounds really time-consuming; at least for cartoons that are heavy on dialogue.)

The Colors of LT&MM Rings and Iris Center used for the LT&MM cartoons
(Dave Mackay already has an entire site devoted to this... and there's a link to it on the GAC Main Page, in the left-hand margin near the bottom.)

Theatrical posters
(I think Jon or another admin has been posting these regularly on GAC's Facebook page.)

Background and BG Pans Art/Screencaps
(That would be interesting to see!)

Ok, so Lobby Cards/Theatrical Posters are being done in another site.

Still, I think we should label the LT&MM Ring & Iis Color within the cartoons, just in case as well.

Transcripts may be time-consuming, but at least it'll be interesting. :) It'll be like writing a story.

I knew the background/background pan idea would work. :)

I'm not sure doing transcripts for cartoons would be a good idea. We might get in trouble with anyone from Warners.

Why would WB care about transcripts?

I don't know, but I heard people could get in trouble somehow for completely transcribing a movie.

Maybe... transcripts aren't the best idea after all. ^^;

Why would we want spoil the cartoons for every one that want watch Looney Tunes, I would recomand rather a basic plot.

Well, the current format of the threads seems to work well as is: Each initial post contains production info, a synopsis, screen shots and a critique of the cartoon.

As far as having a complete transcript is concerned; I think it would be tedious reading through one of those... personally I'd rather just watch the cartoon itself elsewhere and get the full experience with the visuals, music, dialogue, and SFX.

I think I may have misunderstood that last suggestion... if you're suggesting posting original production artwork (i.e., pre-production, not in the finished film) then fine. But if you're just suggesting doing screen caps of BG pans from the finished cartoon; I don't see the point, but that's just me
