I think remember Jerry Beck said that the "Porky's Duck Hunt" negatives having transfers problems for be on the Golden Collections. Did it's by fans requests that "Porky's Duck Hunt" is in "Essential Daffy" disc but screwed in comprehensive discs collections? I hoping that the Essential Bugs having "Porky's Hare Hunt" than "Elmer's Candid Camera". :daffy:

I think that, given that this is actually a oficially confirmed release, Jerry should be able to at the very least clarify if the only new-to-DVD short in this compilation is going to be sourced from a restoration.

I also heard that even if you can turn off the color, the shading still wouldn't match the ones on an original black and white print (although the person who said this isn't a member here anymore).

You can turn color off on computers and HD TVs.

It's true that if you simply turned the color off on a computer colorized print, the shadings would be different.

Take a B&W Mickey Mouse short. His shorts are white. Look at the same short in computer colorized format, and turn the color off with your TV. His shorts are a light grey.

There is one thing they are cheap put on Duck Dogers TV show cartoon, but I don't think that they will clorized copy of Porky's Duck Hunt. Then they could other wise have used Daffy Duck Hunt insteed.

But the thing is, why the flock should Warner put out the computer colorized master of «Porky's Duck Hunt», which has certainly worn out over time, when they have access to good quality, unused B&W dupes in their vaults?

I will probably be able to answer the "Porky's Duck Hunt" question before the release date of this set.
I'll let you know.
