Are you sure about this?? I'm pretty sure I watched Blitz Wolf on that set a year ago or so, and to me it looked like upscaled SD just like the rest of the films... although, at least without the god-awful DVNR present in films like Red Hot Riding Hood.

You be the judge:

The first 2 minutes are sourced from a softer (but colourful) element then there is very noticeable uptick in detail afterwards. I don't consider the "uncleaned" appearance bad per say. After a brief section with distracting horizontal streaks, I'd actually rate the transfer on par with the clearly non-dirt busted Tee For Two on the GC set.

Thanks for all the samples! That really DOES look like true HD! Have to admit, if you had only shown me the first two shots of the pigs in that batch, I would probably have still felt it was an upscaled video master. But the shots after that look great:

Damn, now I wish the LTPC set had also included the remastered and cleaned up "Dixieland Droopy". That way, we could have had one more Avery short released in true HD.

(I notice we seem to be veering off-topic and should probably move this into a catch-all Warner restoration discussion thread but continuing to digress a little...)

It's quite clear that the non T&J MGM toons blessed enough to be on the Academy Award DVD set were remastered in HD (Peace On Earth, Little Johnny Jet, The Milky Way etc.). Goodwill to Men has turned up as a Warner Archive blu-ray extra and I suspect it's the same remaster (not horrifically letterboxed in a 4x3 frame this time, I hope!) but haven't been able to confirm yet.

I agree. Just a reminder to please keep this thread on the topic of the Porky Pig 101 set and move general Warner restoration discussion to its own thread.

Getting a bit back on topic, you know what would be a great idea for either Warner Archive or Warner Home Video proper to release?

Something along the lines of this.
