I was thrilled when I discovered this set was in the works! I'm a huge fan of Looney Tunes and classic animation in rental and I'm so excited to get this in my hands! I haven't seen some of these cartoons in years and I never thought they'd ever be released on DVD. I sincerely hope all animation fans will consider buying this. It's an essential part of anyone's collection. Here's hoping Warner Bros will give us more sets like this in the future!

This is a fun set, but I don't understand all the rave reviews. Many of the cartoons look worse than what I taped off of Cartoon Network years ago and have audio goofs on like a third of the cartoons; quite a few literally take you out of the viewing experience. A little TLC and QC go a long way. Adding insult to injury, I paid full price the day this went on sale. The price dropped significantly before release date and WB Shop refused to honor the lowest price, so I had to cancel (not an easy thing) and reorder. Plus it took a full week to arrive. Not an ace in customer service.

      I just love watching all these animated theatrical shorts from the Golden Age of cartoons. Watching these as a kid, I took them for granted, not understanding the craft. Now as an adult, I can watch these all over again with a fresh new entertaining perspective. I'm not critical of the quality or the format of this release. It is perfectly good enough for what it is, though you will see that the most critical reviews here are from perfectionists, and that is fine, I can see their point. We all want the best of the best. More importantly for me is to have these works of art available for viewing while I am still alive to see them. If it means waiting another ten years to have these released in HD or being able to buy them now in SD, I will gladly take them in SD now. PLEASE Warner Brothers, release the MGM Tex Avery collection soon!

      The Essential Porky Pig

          I'm happy WB put out this collection. It features a lot of early cartoons by some of my favorite directors, Tex Avery, Bob McKimson and Frank Tashlin and early cartoons where Jones and Clampett were animators. It also includes a lot of historical cartoons from Looney Tunes history, but unfortunately didn't have audio commentary on most of them. A lot of the cartoons are rereleases from previous sets but here it feels appropriate since they're showing the growth and development of Porky Pig (and a little of Daffy's), and I like that they're in chronological order. The cartoons look really nice on this set, pretty close to the Golden Collection restores in my opinion. Overall a very nice set

              I have only watched the first few cartoons in this Comprehensive collection. The restoration is flawless with perfect audio & color [even though the ones I have watched were originally rendered in Technicolor I (Red & Green only) when released.]

              The very first Porky cartoon also has a commented version that contains information about the voices of the characters, but also about the business aspect of cartoons: "I Haven't Got A Hat" was something of a scattershot to see which of the characters would be the most popular - and Porky won!

              Based upon my viewing of this collection to date, I strongly recommend this collection to anyone who is interested in film history, and especially Warner Cartoon history.

                  Though physical home video is still strong, it's not strong like it used to be. Sure streaming is nice and convenient, but it will never replace the joy and comfort of owning a show or movie you love on a physical copy. For those who love buying physical stuff, it's sometimes hard for our favorite stuff to come to home video with streaming being so mainstream. Luckily, there are still people out there who still care about physical home video and do whatever they can to make it happen. That's where Jerry Beck and George Feldstein come into the picture; for 5 years, they've been working on a top secret animation on DVD project for the Warner Archive and here it is; Porky Pig 101. What is it? 101 Porky Pig shorts (99 black-and-white and 2 in color) from I Haven't Got a Hat to Porky Pig's Feat. Over 50 shorts never before available on DVD before (and even some PD shorts finally officially on home video from Warner!), uncut with new transfers the interpositives (not the negatives mind you, that's the only drawback, but something from an interpositive can look mighty impressive. It should also be noted that any Porky shorts on the Golden/Platinum Collections/Essential Daffy Duck will have the same transfers found on those sets). For Looney Tunes, Porky Pig, and animation fans, this is a MUST to add to your collection! And if this set sells well, more will follow. It's all part of a big experiment to see if animation sets like this have a place in the Warner Archive. So if you want more, buy this set now and to give you some motivation...MGM Tex Avery is on the list (though the title is a certain number in the animation set list).

                  SO much Clampett!

                      Porky in Wackyland may be Bob Clampett's best cartoon, but it's not an exception to his style; it's representative. He didn't *put* the Looney into the Tunes (that was Tex Avery) but I think he was the Loony-est. So Porky has never been my favorite character, but Clampett was my favorite director, and out of the 101 cartoons on this set? Almost HALF of them are Clampett's! How much of the Daffy Duck Whoop of Glee is too much? None more Daffy is too much. Yes, the set is sharp, clear, whole, and above all comprehensive and chronological, which is just correct, but the real thing is that even though it's not early Daffy, or Chronological Bugs, it is *far* from a not-what-you'd-hope-for set, or an also ran, the medicine you take before getting the sugar. Clampett always brings the sugar.

                      I'm exuberant, nut I only give four because it's DVD. I realize that realities kept this set from being on blu-ray, but it's also a reality that DVD is now two formats ago. Saying it's excellent "for DVD" now really means something. But it is excellent, so I supported - bought from the site even with the extra $$. I do want more of these. I'm also glad of this one on its own merit.

                              It's nice to have Porky's starting years all in one collection. It's too bad though that the picture quality ranges for each cartoon, "Porky's Tire Trouble" intro is used on several cartoons that it doesn't belong and ruining some gags. The bonuses are minimal and what's given is reused from previous Looney Tunes DVD collections.

                                  I've loved Looney Tunes since I was younger, and can watch them over and over again. I hope Warner Bros. prepare more Looney Tunes cartoons that will be new to DVD.

                                      This is the stuff. Tex Avery, Bob Clampett, Frank Tashlin. The best animators of all time in in their prime. And so much content. An incredible value for the price. A shame they couldn't have done Blu-Ray, but this is an amazing product.
