Well, it isn't the best line-up, but it could of been worse, like the webtoons.
Either way, the next set of RR's will have more Chuck Jones in it.

BTW, were there any double dip cartoons in this? The Foghorn Leghorn DVD had 14 new to DVD and 1 double dip.

Yes: "Little Go Beep" was a bonus cartoon on the "Daffy Duck's Quackbusters" DVD, and "The Whizzard of Ow" was a bonus cartoon on "Back in Action".

Also, all three CGI shorts were released on DVD with the films they were shown before in theaters ("Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore", "Ga'hoole", and "Yogi Bear").

So that means only ten of the fifteen cartoons are new to DVD.

The only double dips in this release are:

-Coyote Falls (found on Cats and Dogs: The Revenge Of Kitty Galore)
-Fur Of Flying (Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole)
-Rabid Rider (Yogi Bear Blu-Ray) (However, this will be the first time on DVD)
-Little Go Beep (Daffy Duck's Quackbusters)
-Whizzard Of Ow (Looney Tunes: Back In Action) (However, this will be the first time anywhere that the short will be available in it's original widescreen format)

Oh, I meant on GC or SS DVD's, since I don't want to buy DVD's on rubbish movies like Yogi Bear.

A little preview

Postby Blob55 » Tue Jul 12, 2011 1:54 pm

Well, I went out and bought Road Runner and Friends DVD, since it has the exact same content on it, but without the CGI shorts.

First of all, it was about half the price of Supergenius Hijinks according to Amazon.


Now the Main Men- oh dear...

not only does it use GC cover artwork, but also promotional artwork, all mixed together. The Episode Menus also have Tweety and Daffy on them.

Well, there's at least one good thing, and it's that none of the cartoons seem to be in widescreen format, nor is there an option to.

Overall, the cartoons are in great quality and it's up to you if you think waiting for the already-on-DVD CGI shorts are worth the extra $8.

Those transfers look remarkable (as I suspected)! Can't wait to get my copy once it's available in the US.

Now that you mention it, Whizzard of Ow is in Widescreen, so everything is in the right aspect ration.
Oh and Chariots of Fur restoration looks awesome.
