Hard to get "impulse purchasers" if your sales team can't get the DVDs into any actual brick-and-mortar sales outlets.

The Bugs & Daffy sets have yet to show up at Target, Wal-Mart, and Best Buy. Good luck with these two new sets.


BTW, I will purchase the Foghorn set online as it does contain titles new to DVD (even if they are cropped).

But the Tweety set is really baffling. Why is it 100% double-dipped when the other 3 sets focused on new titles? (No, I will not purchase that one.)

As I said at TZ, I will buy Foghorn & Friends if shown in its proper aspect ratio. But, unlike the Bugs & Daffy sets, all of these cartoons are post-53, so it's even less likely that they'll be shown with the full image, unless WB actually listens to our concerns.

And as others said, I also hope "A Broken Leghorn" is a mistake. We already got that one, and we were told these releases would be composed entirely of new-to-DVD shorts.

I've seen them at a Wal-Mart, though they were hard to find there.

It seems like many recent non-movie DVDs have been hard to find in stores. I haven't found Rocky and Bullwinkle: Season 4 or Henson's Place anywhere, and it took me four weeks to find a DVD copy of Dog City. There are other smaller releases that I have seen plenty of copies of on their release dates (Tom and Jerry Meet Sherlock Holmes, almost any Sesame Street release), so I don't know what the deal is here.

I'm sort of surprised at the number of people that pick these up at the store ... just kind of curious as to why you don't get them on Amazon or Buy ... they are cheaper there than in store.

Because many casual fans have not purchased the Golden Collections, but might buy this release.

I live in an apartment. I'm not always home to let the UPS guy in the building, so sometimes it's easier and more convenient for me to buy it at the store.

I also can't order anything off Amazon.com (I don't believe in credit cards), so unless I bug my dad to buy something off Amazon.com for me, I just go around town. So far, no luck. Obviously, the Best Buy doesn't carry it (but then again, Best Buy is crap when it comes to cartoons on DVD; even the only Scooby-Doo DVDs they are currently selling is "Aloha Scooby-Doo!" Blech.) I tried FYE, but no luck. Not even the nearest Target had any!

I may try Wal-Mart soon, but I wouldn't count on it. If not I'll just wait for one to show up on eBay (I kinda want copies of the Bugs and Daffy and Foggy DVDs).

Nothing on the ad sheet about aspect ratios, but Foggy has the "adult collector" disclaimer. There is also a promo blurb on the announcement saying, "Ideal for fans, collectors and impulse purchasers." Yeah, provided you only collect 5/6 of each cartoon.


Cringe worthy.
One for the money,
Two for the show,
Three to get ready, and
Four to.... GERONIMO!
