    Will "Life with Feathers" have original titles or reissue titles? Also I hope this sells well so WHV can have money to remaster toons.

  • anonymous | May 29, 2014 11:05 PMReply

    Will this volume come to DVD besides Blu-ray Disc?

  • Battlelord | May 24, 2014 3:50 AMReply

    Poor selection again. Why on earth Daffy Doodles or many of the early Foghorn Leghorn shorts (Henhouse Henery, A Fractured Leghorn etc.) are missing. It seems Jerry Beck and Warner execs dislike McKimson's cartoons and Foghorn in particular.

    Overall, this is a skip from me.

  • Kevin | April 27, 2014 2:11 PMReply

    I still can't believe "Daffy Doodles" isn't available on DVD or Blu-Ray yet.

  • RobEB | April 23, 2014 10:26 AMReply

    Really hate to complain, but I won't be buying this, as I have most of these titles already. And, wow, why can't they get a decent cover design for LT video collections?

    Having said all that, I hope the set sells well...

  • Will | April 17, 2014 2:58 PMReply

    Am I the only one who loves McKimson's HOT CROSS BUNNY and laments its continued lack of availability? Great cartoon, amazing premise and brilliant animation. Bugs' Danny Kaye scat routine is epic!

  • David | April 17, 2014 7:26 AMReply

    My question is whether the shorts that were not remastered properly on the first Golden Collection ("High Diving Hare" with mispitched audio, "A Bear For Punishment" with incorrect opening theme) will be fixed here.

    Further, we've seen where post-48 shorts that were previously released as Blue Ribbons on DVD got on Blu-Ray with their original bullseyes restored ("Canned Feud" comes to mind). I wonder if that will apply to any of the shorts here.

  • Bryan | April 16, 2014 6:48 PMReply

    Are any of these new to disc, or have they all been on DVD before?

  • bono | April 16, 2014 8:35 PM

    Four new-to-disc shorts on here: Life with Feathers, Tree for Two, Beep Prepared, and Honey's Money.

  • Rich | April 16, 2014 6:25 PMReply

    Will this also be made available in a DVD format as well, like the other two editions were?

  • Matt | April 16, 2014 4:48 PMReply

    Wow, it looks like this really is the last hurrah for the Platinums, what with all those extras and a new one called - ironically - "That's All Folks."

    It's nice to see this volume finally made it, and that there will soon be three volumes of Looney Tunes Blu-rays for general consumers or home theater enthusiasts, but here's to hoping WHV someday gets serious about the remaining shorts on DVD. Roughly two-thirds of the catalog didn't make it to the Golden Collections, and they remain unrestored and unreleased to collectors.

    Why did Henery coat the bottom of his anvil with shaving cream?

  • Ian Neumann | April 16, 2014 12:33 PMReply

    Well, I guess there's only 1 thing to do about this.

    Look for a torrent version.

  • Zachary | April 16, 2014 1:27 PM

    ?!?!

  • Kevin Martinez. | April 16, 2014 10:47 AMReply

    The selection is dissapointing. Wouldn't it have made sense to stick some of the cropped shorts from the Super Stars sets here in full-frame, since they were full restored and all?

  • Nic Kramer | April 16, 2014 6:15 PM

    Hey, at least they got "Rhapsody in Rivets" on the set. I don't remember if it was completely restored on the "Achademy Awards" set as I was really disappointed by the poor screenshots used in "The 100 Greatest Looney Tunes" book.

  • Justin | April 16, 2014 10:43 AMReply

    I've been waiting for this news! Will there be a DVD version of this set?

  • Deb | April 16, 2014 10:34 AMReply

    I can't help but think that the series would have lasted longer if they had taken up where the Golden Collections left off with all new to disc material rather than so many repeats.

  • Nic Kramer | April 16, 2014 6:10 PM

    Except the fact that the "repeats" have not been on Blu-Ray before. Now why they didn't issue the the six Gollden Collections as Blu-Ray, I don't know. I do know we would have people whine about it anyway and people going "Why are you reissuing these sets on Blu-Ray?! I want a solid gold-plated Volume 7!"

  • Willie Smalls | April 16, 2014 8:48 AMReply

    I'm happy with the cartoon selections, but I'm sad that this is the final volume. Are there going to be any bonus shorts on this volume?

  • bono | April 16, 2014 3:30 PM

    The studio's official synopsis promises "additional rare shorts."

  • Tim Lones | April 16, 2014 3:42 AMReply

    These 3 Platinum sets would seem to be a good Looney Tunes sampling for Blu-Ray if one didn't want to try to find and purchase all the old Golden Collections..

  • Ryan | April 16, 2014 2:55 AMReply

    Not a bad selection. I kind of like the cover as well. I am sad this will be the last blu-ray release. Really a bummer.
