Maybe WB Archive can get around to putting that second Tom & Jerry Golden Collection Blu set out? That’s been on hold for years now!

Get in line, this's the double-dip for Droopy, and we STILL haven't gotten a generic Tex Avery at MGM collection outside of VHS.

(And Tex at Warner? They don't even remember he was ever there.)

It has been nice to see most (if not all?) of WB's H-B series sets getting a second DVD release, in recent months .. but I'd still like to see new sets of H-B shows that haven't yet been on home video (most of which are listed by various folks upthread).

The Droopy set, as EricJ mentioned, is likewise a re-release .. and it would certainly be nice to have the rest of Tex Avery's M-G-M cartoons collected in a companion DVD set (though, The Compleat Tex Avery was also on Laserdisc, in addition to VHS).

I do hope we eventually get the rest of the Tom & Jerry cartoons on Blu-ray. The transfers on that first set were fantastic. :)

Kinda hoping for more WB cartoon sets like Porky 101, too..!

It really does seem Warner Archive is the ideal outlet for all of these things. It's tough to not become impatient, though. :roll:

Tex at Warners = Droopy reissue.

Yes, not a full set as on LD, but they do know he was there! :roll:

I believe by "Tex at Warner," EricJ was referring to Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies cartoons directed by Tex Avery. Droopy was an M-G-M character.

There is a nifty ongoing (though only randomly updated) blog dedicated to analysis & commentary on WB cartoons Supervised by Fred Avery .. which also notes where to find these cartoons on DVD (if available); many of them were included on the Looney Tunes Golden Collection sets, but others are sprinkled as 'bonus features' among random WHV movie DVDs. :)

...Now apologize to the nice folks for being wrong, Ben! :P

And yes, while having the great miscellaneous non-Droopy Tex MGM's like "Magical Maestro" or "Who Killed Who?" immortalized would be nice, we mustn't overlook the almost opposite style of Tex's Warner years, and remember "Hamateur Night", "A Feud There Was" and "Believe It Or Else" for its own Archive set.
While Tex's MGM gags went over the top, his Warner gags snuck in under the radar.

Yeah...so going back I guess I read your Tex/Warners blab as them not realizing they have so much of his stuff in their hands, hence the remark about the Droopy reissue, but ther's no need to be a dick about it, Eric; Droo got what I was thinking.

Besides, the non-Droopy Texes have already been "immortalised" on disc...if you have that "Compleat" LD set. ;)
