Recently I saw a comment from Jerry on FB. He noted that Popeye is not being worked on right now on, but he knows when it will be next. It appears something else is coming first. This likely limits it down to:

Something MGM related (I recall Jerry saying "Technicolor doesn't end here" in the episode of "The Extras" he and George were both on)

The Bugs Bunny Show (Also hinted on "The Extras")

Do you have a link to where he said this?

"Technicolor Doesn't End Here" is a reference to Lucky Ducky, so that just might possibly mean he's talking about a Volume 4.

1950s Popeye is the safest guess.

Or... Barney Bear, Happy Harmonies...

Or... Tex Avery Screwball Classics volume 4 featuring his Warner Bros. one-shots; of course not featuring the most un-PC ones.

The fact that Jerry referenced a phrase from Lucky Ducky does not imply anything. The guy is an animation historian who has Lucky Ducky as one of his favorite cartoons, and he also happens to be working on restoration projects of Technicolor cartoons; "Technicolor ends here" just came to his mind, I don't think that was planned, or a hint, or anything.
I always come to TTTP in Exile in the hope of finding news about Warner announcing Tex Avery Collection.

The thought occurred they might release Lucky Ducky with it's original opening and ending considering they exist. Honestly, if the materials weren't accessible, I would not be surprised if that was also apart of the reason it was not included on V3. Call me crazy of course, but it just might be that. I know I'm getting to be a bit of a fanatic on this stuff but I really am curious what's next since it seems unlikely what most think is coming is not (50s Popeye)

Far as those MGM cartoons goes that have altered titles or animations, it would actually be nice to have both versions of the shorts if the elements still exist. It would be make for interesting comparisons.
Considering that the MGM theatrical cartoon library on the whole is around 310 cartoons (Not counting Gene Deitch or Chuck Jones). Where 114 of which are Tom and Jerry's and Tex Averys are ca 65 (60 which that are on the blu-rays) that leaves us with ca 130 cartoons that are Happy Harmonies, Barney Bear, non-Avery Droopies, Captain and the Kids, etc.... It wouldn't take too many Blu-rays to complete if they want release them maybe 7 (depending on number of shorts each disc) not counting that mentioned 4th Tex Avery volume.

Maybe a fourth Tex Avery volume with most (if not all) the remaining MGM shorts and some Warner shorts.
