UPDATE 8/17/17:

After the exciting announcement of Warner Archive's Porky Pig 101 DVD today, I just added the release to some of the Porky Pig shorts on this list. While The Bugs Bunny Video Guide does have a good educated guess list of the shorts that will more than likely be available on the release, I realized that for the majority of the shorts, I wouldn't know what disc each of them will be on. So, I just added the shorts that are listed in this picture of the first page of the Disc One menu screen (which came from this article  about the release).:

I'll add the rest of the shorts once I get clear confirmation about what disc each short will be included on. 🙂

UPDATE 9/13/17:

Thanks to TVShowsonDVD posting Warner Archive's press release  about the Porky Pig 101 DVD set (and thanks to Toonatic for posting the link to said article in the thread about the set! ), I have been adding the entirety of the release to the filmography! :)

Thus far, I have added the rest of Disc One and all of Disc Two to the list; Discs Three, Four, and Five haven't been added yet, but they will be added soon.

While on the subject of Warner Archive releases, I just added their Bugs Bunny Superstar DVD to the filmography as well.

I also made some tweaks to the notes section on the first post of the thread (mainly to update the notes about "The Lone Stranger and Porky" and "Porky and Daffy"; I updated both of their notes sections to include information about the inclusion of the original B&W versions of the shorts being included on the upcoming Porky Pig 101 DVD set).

I also added a small note about "Hare-Um Scare-Um" 's various DVD and Blu-Ray releases to the notes section (mainly to differentiate the fact that the old Invisible Stripes DVD (WB Gangsters Collection, Vol. 4) set contains the censored version of the short, while the newer Looney Tunes Platinum Collection Volume Two DVD and Blu-Ray sets contain the uncensored version of the short).

UPDATE 9/15/17:

Discs Three, Four, and Five of the Porky Pig 101 Warner Archive Collection DVD set have been added to the filmography (meaning that the entirety of the release should be available for reference in the filmography now. :)).

I've also been fixing some various errors that I've noticed throughout the filmography (just tiny spacing issues, coding issues, short title listing issues (I noticed some short titles in the filmography weren't written out the way they appear on the actual title card of the short - mainly just a nitpick of mine), etc.).

I also added the two Buster Bear cartoons to the Miscellaneous section of the filmography (which I just discovered the existence of thanks to this great article by Steve Stanchfield over on Cartoon Research ), as despite them not being true Looney Tunes cartoons, they were (or were supposed to have been) released by Warner Bros., and thus I feel they deserve a spot in this filmography.

I also added two notes to the notes section on the first post of the filmography. One is about the two Buster Bear cartoons described above, while the other is about the Looney Tunes Superstars 3-Fun Pack Volume Two DVD set that came out recently (mainly just written to inform those looking at the filmography that all of the cartoons included on the Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, and Tweety and Sylvester Superstars releases are included in the Looney Tunes Superstars 3-Fun Pack Volume Two DVD set). Also of note, since there are now two of the Superstars 3-Fun Pack sets, I edited the initial 3-Fun Pack note to include a Volume One next to the rest of the title of the DVD set, so that it is easier to differentiate the two 3-Fun Pack releases from each other.

EDIT: Also added another note in the notes section about "Shuffle Off To Buffalo" and "Young and Healthy" being presented in SD on the "42nd Street" Blu-Ray release (EDIT 10/4/17: Partially incorrect information - "Shuffle Off To Buffalo" is indeed presented in HD on the "42nd Street" Blu-Ray release. See below for more information.), edited a release title (accidentally had typed Pete Kelly's Blues DVD instead of Pete Kelly's Blues Blu-Ray for the Blu-Ray version of the release underneath the short "The Hole Idea"), and have added member credits to some of the notes in the notes section (since I received information for some of the notes in the notes section from some of the fellow members here on IAD, I only thought it was fair to credit them for finding the information and posting it here.).

Also, I give a huge thanks to anyone who has helped me out with the filmography, whether it be posting a release that contains a Looney Tunes short on it, details as to how a short is presented on a release, and even just going through and spotting some missing or inaccurate information and other errors throughout the filmography. Without you guys, this filmography wouldn't be like how it is today. Thank you all very much. [bugs]

UPDATE 10/2/17:

Just a minor update here, folks! I completely forgot to add the Porky Pig 101 DVD to the bottom of "The Breakdowns of 1939" on the filmography (the featurette is included on Disc Five of the set). Just added that in right now. Thanks to Toonatic (and Amazon user Peter Archer) for the info on what extras are available on the Porky Pig 101 DVD set!

Sure enough, that's definitely HD! Thanks for the info dbear! Just edited the note regarding that on the first post. [bugs]

Nice list although I would made some additional suggestion

Regarding shorts that have multiple re-releases I would suggest putting marker regarding what exact release has the best looking and most complete print.

Regarding shorts only release released as bonuses (but on no dedicated collections), on various live-action DVDs did probably make notes within the list if hey have gotten proper treatment.

I notice the list does includes the TV shorts (from 1979-1980) I do recall that the Golden Collection releases of these shorts included them within the orginal TV special they originated from, not artificial opening and closing title cards that were later added when those experts were released as standalone shorts so I did suggest making a note regarding that.

Thank you for the suggestions! :)

Regarding your first point, the list is set up so that the best release for each individual short is listed first, and then goes on down from there. Usually, that means the short will look the best on the release that's listed right under the short title. I tried my best to keep the list like that back when I first transferred the list over from GAC, but there may be some errors here and there that I haven't picked up on (if you see any, feel free to point them out! :)).

There is one case I can think of where I believe I didn't put the best looking release right under the title of the short. That would be "Patient Porky." When I started placing the new Porky Pig 101 release on the list, I didn't know about the issues with the set yet, as the release hadn't come out yet. I mainly placed the release first on that short (and the others on the release) because I felt that it was the best release for the older B&W Porky Pig shorts, since it has all of them included on the set. However, given the issues that the set has, I may write a note in the notes section about the set, just to caution those who haven't purchased the set yet.

Regarding your second point, I wouldn't mind adding a note about this, but I think for the most part, those releases just have unrestored transfers of the shorts that were used for television (unless the shorts were released on dedicated Looney Tunes collections already, as you kinda said already). I could look into it more, as there may be a few shorts here or there that were given proper treatment for those types of releases, but I wouldn't know where to look to find that information.

Regarding your third point, thank you for the information about that! I'll definitely write a note about that information. :)

Thank you again for your suggestions! If there's anything else that you think I should add and/or fix on the list, feel free to write about it! [bugs2]

UPDATE 10/17/17:

I've done a little work on improving the filmography today (thanks again for the suggestions Kristjin! [bugs2] ). The biggest change is the addition of The Lists section. This section mainly contains lists of anomalies that appear on various Looney Tunes sets, such as the appearance (how they look) of the shorts on the Saturday Morning Cartoons sets and the 1979-1980 Looney Tunes shorts. In the future, I may add more lists for other anomalies that appear on various Looney Tunes sets.

I've also added notes regarding the two lists I've created to the first post, as well as one regarding the Porky Pig 101 set (which addresses the problems that the set has, mainly as a word of caution to anyone who hasn't purchased the set yet).

It does miss the cartoons included on

Thanks for the find Kristjan! Just added the three shorts included on the Blu-Ray version of the set (which are Super-Rabbit, Snafuperman, and Stupor Duck, for other members reading this who didn't get a chance to check out the above article yet).

I did find this DVD set that seems to be a condensed version of the Superman Anthology Blu-Ray set. : https://www.bestbuy.com/.../3056011.p?skuId=3056011 

However, from what I can tell, the three Looney Tunes shorts are not included on that version of the set. If someone has the set and can check this, however, that'd be very appreciated! :)

From what I can tell as well, the 8-disc Superman Anthology set was just Blu-Ray exclusive, and wasn't released on DVD in its entirety (the above 5-Film Collection DVD set is the closest I can find).

As for ToonHeads: The Lost Cartoons, I haven't watched the special in a long time, but based on what I remember of it (as well as looking at the ToonHeads Episode Guide   located right here on IAD as a part of the GAC Archives), I don't think any of the shorts were broadcast unedited during the special (unless you count the Tang Bugs Bunny and Marvin The Martian commercial, but that isn't really a short film :P). If anyone can check on this as well, it'd be very appreciated as well! 🙂

UPDATE 3/26/18: This is mainly a minor update. I added a note regarding the Looney Tunes Let Loose Triple Feature DVD set to the notes section on the first post (it just states that all of the shorts included on the Looney Tunes: Rabbit's Run DVD set are also included in the Looney Tunes Let Loose Triple Feature DVD set).

I would have added this a lot sooner, but I didn't even know this set existed until I saw it at Walmart the other day.

UPDATE 8/24/18: Lots of various updates!
  • The main update is the addition of the upcoming "Stars of Space Jam" DVDs coming out on October 9th. This is really odd, as aside from a few changes, they are basically DVD versions of VHS tapes Warner released over 20 years ago in conjunction with the original release of Space Jam. Why they're being released to DVD now, who knows. Regardless, there are a few new-to-DVD shorts included in these, and perhaps some upgrades from the botched Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck Super Stars sets as well!
  • Added two notes to the first post: One regarding the Looney Tunes Spotlight Collection Volumes 1-3 Three-Pack release (which came out this past June apparently), and one regarding the three separate re-releases of the Warner Bros. Academy Awards Collection that came out a few years ago.
  • Various other minor updates (mainly just moving the Looney Tunes: Unleashed and The Best of Bugs Bunny DVDs below any other releases listed on the bottom of a short, since these two sets are pretty much bottom of the barrel - 3 shorts on one disc and some shorts are still in widescreen despite the controversy. Though guess that makes sense (somewhat), since these obviously weren't aimed at collectors).

UPDATE 12/9/18

Just a quick update today. :)

I corrected a minor formatting error that was listed in the filmography (the "Saturday Morning Cartoons: The 60s Vol. 2 listing underneath "The Wild Chase" had the disc number labeled numerically instead of spelled out ("2" instead of "Two"). The rest of the Saturday Morning Cartoons sets had the disc number spelled out rather than listed numerically, so I changed it to match the other listings. I believe they all match now, but if anyone spots another error regarding this (or any listing), feel free to comment down below).

In addition to the above, I also added this note to the first post of the filmography:

*All shorts included in the Saturday Morning Cartoons: The 60s Vol. 1, The 60s Vol. 2, and The 70s Vol. 2 are included in the Saturday Morning Cartoons Collection: Cartoon Favorites From The 60s, 70s, and 80s boxset.

Interesting to see Warner Bros. repackage all of the Saturday Morning Cartoons sets into one boxset! I figured they wouldn't have bothered to do so, considering they already repacked them individually into those cheap "4 Kid Favorites" sets a while back. Speaking of which, I also added this note regarding the 4 Kid Favorites SatAM 60s set to the first post as well:

*All shorts included in the Saturday Morning Cartoons: The 60s Vol. 1 set are included in the repackaged 4 Kid Favorites: Saturday Morning Cartoons 60s DVD set.

I'm assuming the Casablanca Blu-Ray mentioned in this list used the 2008 release. However, The 70th anniversary release includes 3 additional Merrie Melodies shorts besides Carrotblanca (for a total of 4 merrie melodie/loony tunes shorts). With one of them being in HD. And according to this list 2 of the 4 shorts are only available on 70th Anniversary release of Casablanca.

The Three additional shorts are:

The Birds Came C.O.D. (SD)
The Squawkin' Hawk (SD)
The Dover Boys at Pimeto University or The Rivals of Roquefort Hall (HD)

Thank you for the information! I've added the 70th Anniversary Edition of Casablanca to the filmography. I also made a note on the first post regarding the SD presentation of the first two shorts on said release. 🙂
