It.... looks like Foghorn's giving Sylvester a proctology exam.

Who the hell is WHV trying to fool with their ad sheet? "15 Never-Before-On-DVD Cartoons". :rolleyes:

Sylvester & Tweety is (all?) Double-Dip and even a cartoon on the Foghorn disc was also on the Golden Collections.

Whatever, they've lost a former happy customer after their abomination they put out this month.

I noticed "Weasel While You Work" and "Gopher Broke" were on the Foghorn Leghorn disc list. While I am not really big on those two shorts, I wonder if they are going to have some conflict with music rights or something (and I do NOT mean "Camptown Races"). Being theatrical, it could be likely there is some sort of exception. And besides that, Classic Media and Premavision managed to get several classic Gumby episodes on DVD with the original John Seely music intact, and "Ren & Stimpy" has not run into any problems regarding music rights whatsoever (in fact, some of the music in "Gopher Broke" was actually heard on "Ren & Stimpy!")

I'm just saying this, because only two other "Seely Six" cartoons were released on home video; "Hook, Line and Stinker" (the best of the bunch) and "Hip, Hip, Hurry!"

Hopefully someone at Warner's marketing goofed and meant to type Fractured, but wrote in Broken instead.

I doubt that is the case, but it sure would be a good thing.:foggy:

Notice that they used a "Baby Looney Tunes" clip art of Tweety...:confused:

I wouldn't bee surprised if they also croped the whole bunch of the cartoons on the LTSS Foghorn.

+1 to the bold thing.

I'm more looking for the Foghorn DVD. Most titles i haven't yet mostly the one-shots titles.

I'm hoping to see "The Dixie Fryer" or "The Slick Chick" than "A Broken Leghorn" was already in the first DVD volume.

I remember "A Bird in a Bonnet" was in a 1982's local videotape from The Looney Tunes Video Show banner. You never think of this when you got it in a official videotape. :tweety:

That'd be awesome if it was the case - "A Fractured Leghorn" is a great cartoon, with one of my favorite ending gags ever. ("Wouldn't tell him I was hungry!") Unfortunately, it's from 1950, and they said the Foghorn disc is all post-54s. Which of course means they'll all be in faux-widescreen. Boo.

I already wasn't planning to buy the Sylvester and Tweety set, but if the Foghorn set double-dips too and contains nothing but cropped cartoons, I'll be forced to pass on both of them. I'm not going to put up with this.

I think the "913 million" is probably actually 9.13 million.
