Dreamworks bought out Classic Media so they now own the Jay Ward catalog, Casper and some other things. (DW Animation is also now partnered with 20th Century Fox for film and video distribution, just an fyi. smile.gif

In that case there is slim change of JWP showing up on BD, Shriek was on TV in HD for quite a few years but it was only recently put on BD.

More lovely Chuck Jones caps:

There is some nice fine detail in the bg paintings in these caps.

Going to ignore the other thread with the carping about the audio, something already well covered:

http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Looney-Tunes-Volume-Two-Blu-ray/52011/#Review

A bit mixed in these caps, still I like how overall WB left in the film grain, the way animation shot on film should be on BD.

I guess WB is going to continue to release cartoon shorts on BD.

There sure is, and the old barn walls in "Little Brother Rat" backgrounds are beautifully multihued:

Volume 2 might have simpler bg however, the sad fact is the older the cartoon, the more effort was put in it. Still it's not chronological so it's hard to know before buying.

Dont know if WB owns the rights to the Superman cartoons, but if they do I cannot imagine why they would let this be released:

The caps look like a upscaled dvd with thick dnr.

It's my understanding that by nature of owning the character, Warner owns the negatives (or whatever source material survives) but the cartoons themselves are in the public domain. So anyone can use whatever source they can obtain to produce a disc. Only Warner would be able to have access to the original material though. Everyone else is probably using either videotape source material used for TV broadcast in the past or 16mm film sources.

Some say Tex Avery or Chuck Jones are their favorite WB cartoon directors but mine is Bob Clampett, I had to use slow motion to catch all the sight gags, he almost makes Avery seem pedestrian in comparison and I love how unslick they look. For instance 'Porky in Wackyland' blew me away and 'Wabbit Twouble' had wonderful depth to it besides being hilarious.

Anyway I finally finished watching the Tom & Jerry and Looney Tunes volume 2, pq wise most of the cartoons look great especially the early ones, maybe they were done last because the early v2 shorts looked much better then the later toons and not just because the backgrounds were more elaborate.

I forgot to add:
Looney Tunes volume 2, pq wise most of the cartoons look great except for disc 3 (bonus disc) which was all upscaled SD. Jagged lines were everywhere and the 'Best of MGM Tex Avery' cartoons on disc 3 deserved much better.
