I would have thought that by now someone would have spelled this out.

Guys, everybody calm the fork down. WHV didn't go out of their way to get those titles because they almost never deal with private collectors. All of the original titles that were on the Looney Tunes sets are there because they had a copy in their holdings. The company has almost zero interest in securing nitrate elements or 16mm prints that are located on the other side of the country.

That said, there are some serious problems with this release, but that's for another time...

Well I didn't know that all the LTGC original titles restorations are from prints already in their vaults...

What do you exactly mean by "serious problems"?

Like what? Cropped images? Redubbed prints?

The review at www.blu-ray.com linked to earlier in this thread includes the line (italics mine): "...some of these cartoons are being presented as they were originally created...". Has Lillian Randolph been redubbed? (Even though her name is in the amazon.com listing.)

I'm hoping he means the original titles.

The above quote (which is actually from a disclaimer on the set itself) is in a paragraph about the "un-PC" content in the earlier Tom & Jerry cartoons. Doesn't sound promising...

We have pictoral evidence that Warner left the blackface gags The Milky Waif and The Truce Hurts alone. Those were two of the shorts cut for the first Spotlight Collection, so I think we can rule out censorship, accidental or otherwise.

DVNR, maybe? (Though again, Kitty Foiled looked pretty clean)

To me, that quote just meant that those "some" cartoons typically censored are now presented uncensored...
