Warner Home Video is preparing to announce The Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 3
, with a great deal of information about this release very possibly planned to be discussed this weekend at the San Diego Comic Con. We have the early info for you, though, about this highly anticipated third installment of the beloved best-selling series!
October 25th sees the release of this 4-DVD set, featuring Bugs Bunny shorts on the first disc, a salute to Hollywood on the second disc, Porky Pig shorts on the third disc, and Daffy Duck shorts on the fourth disc. 60 cartoons overall, once again lovingly remastered and restored to look like they did when they first debuted decades ago.
Whoopi Goldberg (Star Trek: The Next Generation) is on hand to introduce each disc in the 3rd set. It's not well-known, but Whoopi is an animation collector herself and a huge fan of Bugs and all his Looney friends. Other special features include 9 documentaries, 32 commentary tracks from animator and historians, 11 "vintage treasures from the vault," and 11 music-only or music-and-sound-effects audio tracks. $64.92 is the list price for all of this wonderful stuff! Stay tuned for many more details once the studio formally announces the product.
As an added bonus this time around, Warner is also planning to release on the same day the Looney Tunes Movie Collection, a 2-DVD release ($26.99 SRP) that will have The Bugs Bunny/Road-Runner Movie on the first disc and Bugs Bunny's 3rd Movie: 1001 Rabbit Tales on the second disc. In addition to these fine treasures from the history of the Looney Tunes, there will also be extras including 3 documentaries. Both films have been restored to their original theatrical quality. Nice, and thanks to Warner as always for taking care of all of us Looney, Looney fans!
