It is my understanding that between that version and the "Dubbed Version", that was the only uncut transfer that was available. The "Dubbed Version" of "I Taw a Putty Tat" has the blackface gag edited out of it completely, much like the edits that are done to the "Dubbed Version" masters of "September in the Rain" (the Jolson scene survives intact, but the scene with Fats Waller and Louis Armstrong is cut), "Confederate Honey", "Aviation Vacation" and "Crazy Cruise" (the pygmy/cannibal scene is cut, but the Japanese vulture scene survives intact) just to name a few.

Well, guess what, another "Super Stars" title has been added..."Bugs Bunny: Wascally Wabbit." Like before, there is no other information on this one yet.

But just to show that I'm not crazy (at least, not because of this), I've included a screen grab of the search results.

Shouldn't it be "Wascawwy Wabbit"?

"I must defend the remarkable prescience of the Hanna-Barbera writers. In the early 1960s, they dreamed up a futuristic world that seemed impossibly beyond our reach. Their creativity predicted the microwave oven, slide walks, smart phones and robot teachers. All these inventions are now routine realities of the 21st century." - Janet Waldo (LA Times, 2011)

-Fresh Hare

So, plenty of material left for another Bugs set, even if they limited themselves to post-53 titles. Heck, even from the post-53 batch alone, they can squeeze out two more Bugs sets. Of course, some of those pre-53 titles desperately need an official DVD release and/or restoration, but I digress.

So this is separate from the Deluxe Anniversary Bugs release that's already been planned? Sure, whatever.

At the risk of sounding dumb, what "post-1953 limitations" are you talking about?

It may be difficult for them to get "Pre-Hysterical Hare" on DVD, as well as "Weasel While You Work," "A Bird in a Bonnet" and "Gopher Broke" (not sure how the latter would fit on a DVD set, maybe in an All-Stars collection). The reason why?

MUSIC RIGHTS.

I mean, look at it this way. The only two of the "Seely Six" WB cartoons released on home video are "Hook, Line and Stinker" and "Hip, Hip, Hurry!", both of which are the Road Runner cartoons. I imagine WB must've been lucky to clear the music rights for those two cartoons, cause the home video rights for those old Capitol Hi-Q music cues can be VERY expensive. This is one reason why we didn't see a DVD release of the 1959-1961 "Quick Draw McGraw" episodes, and why the first attempt to release the old Gumby cartoons on DVD back in 2002 resulted in them using the 1988 redubbed versions using weird synthesizer music and re-recorded voices (with only half of the original voice cast).

Being able to clear the rights for only two 6-minute shorts using the music seems easier than doing so for all six of them. Just pray we don't wind up getting a redubbed version of "Pre-hysterical Hare" with a fake synth orchestral track and Billy West replacing the Mel Blanc voices. :p

I'm going to stop you right there.
You're creating a new urban legend from scratch—by presuming, with no evidence, that Warner's deal with Capitol must have been the same as Hanna-Barbera's deal.

So Hanna-Barbera's deal didn't involve video (or other "new media") rights to the music cues? Maybe Warner's deal did.

Anyway, unless we know for sure, it's playing with fire to claim that Warner doesn't have the rights to do something. Let's not convince them, huh?
