I thought that would be next year! Well, I have my holidays planned out...

I was wondering when this will be finally announced officially. Jerry actually hinted at this during the "Animation Brain Trust" panel at this year's San-Diago Comic-Con. See at the 18:20 mark:

I also knew this was in the works, but in fairness I think everyone here knew it would happen. Vol 1 started selling like gangbusters right away, George and Jerry probably got the greenlight for this set immediately after release date. Considering there's more films, and if the curation is just as solid as the first one, I bet we'll get even more sets. I just hope this time, the cartoons were actually redone
Devastating news.................. for my Wallet. 😂
I'm just as excited as everyone else at this announcement and will surely make another pre-order as soon as practicable. Meanwhile, I wonder what is possible given the 'Blu-Ray debut' stipulation.

If we are obliged to stick with 1947/8 and later shorts, I would like to see shorts from the post-Golden Collection 'Super Stars' DVDs get some reevaluation. Besides the ones that were given phoney widescreen crop jobs, the remastering on the later discs (I'm thinking the Porky Pig & Friends and Sylvester/Hippety Hopper ones in particular) featured some skewed color grading that I've love to see undone.

Since some of the shorts on those discs, such as 'The Pest Who Came to Dinner', 'Dog Collared' and 'Pop 'Im Pop!' were de-Blue Ribbon-ized with their original opening rings, raising them up to Blu-Ray standard ought to be an easy win and would earn guaranteed goodwill from the animation community. That's if there's still no possibility of genuinely lost title sequences being found/reinstated, that is.
Slowly I Turn
On The Extras podcast George states that a third volume "is already being worked on". Assuming 2 coming out at Christmas time will have great sales, then seems like a third volume is almost assured.


The mention of volume 3 is around the 19 minute mark.

Curation for the disc has been announced just now, by Warner Archive.  Good titles, I wasn't expecting his many one shots and oddball characters but I am not complaining!

Wow, that is such an eclectic mix of shorts. They really are going for broke to get some of the more obscure ones out, particularly the Tashlins and Jones one-shots ('Ghost Wanted'? Sold!)

Though I look at all those shorts that are currently only known to exist as Blue Ribbon reissues and wish against all reason we could be surprised with restorations of original title sequences for any of them.

That being said, this is another automatic pre-order.
Great selection. Lots of one-shots from the 1940s. That's the way to go!

I'm very optimistic about these releases.

See, there are ~300 shorts whose best physical media release is DVD (Golden Collection, Super Stars, and Academy Awards Collection). I don't know what they are going to do with them.

Most of the DVD-only releases are available via Jack Sparrow, restored, in HD Web-DL form. And most of them are available via official iTunes purchase, although this format is subject to arbitrary unavailability.

I'd like them to slap all those on disc already, because there are more obscure films being released via Collector's Choice while more popular gems remain in the Golden Collection/Web-DL limbo...

Anyways, 10 years from now the future of LT in bluray looks very bright. Let's do the math: they are scratching the obscure, never-released-restored-on-physical-media ones. That's about 200 shorts, that got new restorations on MeTV, HBO Max, and Ride. That means that if they keep the pace of 2 vols. per year and 25 shorts per volume, in 4 years they will fully scratch the transfers that we nowadays share precariously on Jack Sparrow, from the 2020-2023 batch. More 4 years and they can possibly scratch all the Golden Collection/Super Stars-exclusive transfers. It may seem distant, but for comparison, it took 10 years for the publisher (2 books per year) to fully release the Peanuts strips. We are talking about a 1002-film run (LT/MM). So, almost inevitably, if they keep releasing these things, we will end up in the last ~200 or so shorts. If the classic animation releases don't get cancelled, in around ~17 years we're headed for completion. It's going to be interesting.
I always come to TTTP in Exile in the hope of finding news about Warner announcing Tex Avery Collection.
