I'm buying this DVD JUST for Porky's Duck Hunt! I don't care if the bulk of it is double dipping, i love that cartoon too much, and i can FINALLY watch it on DVD! I was so upset when i found out that the cartoon was axed from Looney Tunes Golden Collection Vol. 6, so i'm very happy that it's finally getting released!

I hope they're no changes to the content. If they don't, this could be better than the Bugs Bunny Essentials

The lineup on disc 1 is near-perfect, but disc 2 is a joke.

I'm going to skip this. Attack of the Drones is entertaining, and I wouldn't mind having Porky's Duck Hunt finally, but I already own the vast majority of this on other discs. At least Essential Bugs had a decent amount of new stuff (How Bugs Bunny Won the West, uncut Bunny Snatchers, Hare & Loathing, Wild World of Sports, the featurette).

Seems like a good line-up with Porky's Duck Hunt (hopefully restored). I was kinda hoping this would include Daffy Duck's Thanks-For-Giving Special since that has the uncut version of Duck Dodgers and The Return Of The 24th 1/2 Century and who knows if this set will have the uncut version. Also, a Duck Dodgers episode is a nice touch.

Don't forget that this special have also "His Bitter Half", one of the most underatted Daffy shorts ever made. I can't believe this special was omitted for a range of already-seen Vaults shorts. I also like the idea of Duck Dodgers Jr. in the disc. Such a good idea to bring back memories by watching Tiny Toons. :daffy:
