Warner Bros. Needs to Rethink Situation

"Why continue with the Spotlight Collection, which is basically a re-release of stuff already available on the Golden Collection sets? It really makes no sense, especially considering the fact that there are still many great classic Warner Brothers cartoons that have yet to be released on DVD.
For instance, where's "Racketeer Rabbit," that classic 1946 Bugs Bunny short with gangster caricatures Edward G. Robinson and Peter Lorre? There have been numerous Looney Tunes DVD releases that this classic and other great cartoons have not appeared on, while there are other WB cartoons that have appeared on DVD twice so far.
Warner Brothers needs to release a seventh Golden Collection set that features all of those classics the studio to this point has failed to get on DVD. Releasing yet another DVD collection - like Spotlight Collection 7 - that contains cartoons that appeared on a previous release is like a slap in the face to the loyal fans who purchased the prior collections."
Rewinding the Looney

"When it has came down to it, the Looney Tunes Cartoons have honestly been one of the most influential series of animation that we've enjoyed all throughout the years. But when I had found out that they would not be making anymore of them to thrive on the popular Golden Collection Series last year, I was absolutely devistated. Yet, it has came to a complete surprise that I found out that there were going to be more versions of the smaller Spotlight Collections, for budget seekers, and those who were new to the Looney Tunes series everywhere. It really was not something I was very happy with. Not only that, but when I also found out that the series had not anything to take the breath away that was new to DVD, I was also wasn't very happy either. Here is what it feels like to say that is honestly all folks!
The Looney Tunes Spotlight Collection Volume 7 is not anything new for those who've enjoyed the laughter and the spirit from the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volumes 1-6, not only that, but it doesn't do anything to make it different from what the Golden Collections top to bottom had that was anything to excite and offer. Anyway, all of these shorts have been remastered, but not anything new for anyone who already owns all 6 of the Golden Collections at all. The volume tries to fully re-introduve the classic staples of Bugs, Daffy, the Chuck Jones favorites of the Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote, and some of the other favorites. Sadly though, only 2 shorts are new to DVD, rather than it being all 26. Well, here is the complete list:
1) Baseball Bugs
2) Rabbit Seasoning
3) Long-Haired Hare
4) High Diving Hare
5) Bully For Bugs
6) Beep Beep
7) Going Going Gosh
8) Zipping Along
9) Stop, Look & Hasten
10) Ready, Set, Zoom
11) Guided Muscle
12) Gee Whiz-z-z-z
13) There They Go-Go-Go
14) Scrambled Aches
15) Zoom & Bored
16) Daffy Duck & the Dinosaur (new to DVD)
18) Drafty Daffy
19) Falling Hare
20) Steal Wool
21) Birds Anonmymous
22) No Barking (new to DVD)
23) Rabbit Punch
24) Odor-able Kitty
25) Walky Talky Hawky with Foghorn Leghorn(released from the Warner Brothers Academy Awards Collection DVD set, but new to the Looney Tunes Spotlight series)
26) To Beep or Not to Beep
Overall, I really was expecting more new to DVD shorts from the classic vault of the Looney Tunes series taht weren't from the Golden Collection volumes 1-6. Considering now that the lesser appealing Spotlight Collection is still in demand, while the greater Golden Collection series is not releasing another volume, it is not a real must-have for hard core Looney Tunes fans, unless you have honestly never seen a episode of the classics in animation, than it honestly would be a great starter sampler for those new to the Looney Tunes gang. But honestly, the Looney Tunes Spotlight Collection: Volume 7 isn't really enough to say That's All Folks?? But just a bit to short.
Shame on you Warner Bros.!!!

"Shame on you, plese continued the Golden collection series. The Fans want's more new Looney Tunes to DVD. Give what the fans want. We want it all.... Not this. Only Ccartoons that the fans alredy have from before. Nothing new here on DVD. I'm a huge Looney Tunes fan. Why did Warner stopped the Golden collectin, make me wonders. Give me more Golden collection and I'll gladly buy it..... The Cartons is great..... But Warner should listen to the buyers. There are so many good ones left. Why they not continued. I hope they will returned too the series soon, very soon."
Give the fans what they want

"I agree with the reviewer from Norway, WB should give the fans what they want. I don't understand why did WB decided to discontinue the Golden Collection series when it seems to be doing very well and getting very good reviews from fans. I hope to see more new Looney Tunes releases in the future and not recycled previously released titles.
