At the end of last week, we brought you a look
at the Blu-ray box art for Warner's October 16th
release of the Looney Tunes Platinum Collection: Vol. 2
, but we didn't have the DVD package art yet. Now we've got a look at that for you below. Also, expert animation historian Jerry Beck will be talking about this title (and possibly he'll even hint at other upcoming Looney Tunes
releases being planned) tomorrow on the internet radio program Stu's Show
, hosted as always by Stuart Shostak. Here's a statement Stu sent us about tomorrow's broadcast with Jerry, followed by the package art we've promised you:
Animation author/historian JERRY BECK pays a return visit to the popular Internet talk show "Stu's Show," hosted by Stu Shostak, on Wednesday, August 8, live beginning at 4:00 p.m. PT/7:00 p.m. ET (www.stusshow.com ). There are several audio players to choose from to catch the program on the site's main page, and the live broadcast can be heard free of charge. A few hours after the program ends, it will be available as an mp3 file for instant download in the Archives area of stusshow.com for a 99-cent charge.
Jerry is the "go to guy" for the latest news in animation from print media to television to DVD box set releases (many of which he supervises and co-produces). Topics for this session include Jerry's reviews of the latest feature films, his upcoming appearance on TCM with Robert Osborne, the current and upcoming releases to home video, and a debate on what the acquisition of Classic Media by Dreamworks is going to mean for animation collectors, which, at press time, is causing some disagreement between Stu and Jerry.
About to conclude its sixth season, the weekly "Stu's Show" continues to keep the tradition of classic television and pop culture alive and well, and features in-depth interviews and free-wheeling chats with top celebrities such as the multiple Emmy-winning Ed Asner, Academy-Award winner Shirley Jones, comedian Shelley Berman, the legendary Rose Marie, plus cast reunions of "Leave it to Beaver," "My Three Sons," and "Dennis the Menace."
