My guess is "Porky's Duck Hunt" will not be in the finalised DVD. Remember "The Mansion Cat" who was missing in the final Deluxe T&J DVD?

Thanks for posting these. And thanks to Nicolas Orizaga. It's a huge job, and a big help to us fans & collectors.

I have found some cartoons
on Public Domain DVDs that are not listed as on DVD:

Prest-o Change-o is on Cartoon Crazys: Sci-Fi and also one called Christmas Cartoon Collection.

Notes to You was on Cartoon Craze - Porky Pig

A Day At The Zoo was on a one dollar DVD titled simply Betty Boop and also on a
[/SIZE]
[size=100]one dollar DVD[/SIZE][size=100] Kids Klassic Kartoons.

The quality was usually so-so, and I have no idea if they are still available.

Jon, are you going to add the "- and Friend's" DVD's I posted info for? I know they're UK/EU only, but a lot of the DVD's listed are US only.

We generally avoid listing the dollar-store variety public domain DVD titles, since they are so numerous and the quality varies so much. We made exceptions for the Thunderbean releases and the two volumes of Uncensored Bosko from Image Entertainment.

As for adding other region releases to the main listing... I am not sure yet. It's tough enough keeping track of the R1 releases. :p Feel free to keep posting the contents in this thread, though.

Since we now have the official, finalized press release for Looney Tunes Platinum Collection, I have added those contents to the listing. Still awaiting the final listing for The Essential Daffy Duck, which is why that one isn't listed yet.

I agree public domains DVDs should be avoided on the main list with the expecations you mentioned but if Warner Archive release happens of the Bosko cartoons I would remove the Image entertainent DVDs as you said you would do in the second post.

As for other regions release, I don't think that serves any purpose at all to include it at lest not when it comes to LTGC as they are same thing as in Europe minus handfuls of cartoons, and I do prefer the American releases myself even if I live in PAL country (Iceland), the first two volumes of LTGC were also divided into single DVDs releases. Using the same subtitles for individual DVDs as on LTGC.

But for the super Star series DVDs that are all double dips I don't think that serves much purpose eather for inclusion unless the idea is to complete the super Star series. Inlcuding that DVD that was only released in Europe. I don't know anything about about other none-American releases apart from LTGC and LTSS , I think they are mostly france or Japanes and didn't even make it to Iceland.

Since we now have a final listing, I have added the contents of The Essential Daffy Duck. I will add Looney Tunes Super Stars - Pepe Le Pew: Zee Best of Zee Best when those contents are official/final.
