Since 2014, we've seen virtually no new "Looney Tunes" on Blu-ray (I'm not counting the release of Porky Pig 101, as that was just a DVD release). With the sales of that set doing surprisingly well, it seems possible that there's a market for more "Looney Tunes" on home video, and I decided to come up with a way for Warner to put out just that: the Looney Tunes Diamond Collection.

However, I'm stuck on what to do with formatting the first couple of volumes I've put up articles for. First, I tried doing the usual "Golden"/"Platinum" format (putting 25 shorts on one disc with some bonuses relating to the theme of that disc), but then moved on with a different set for each character (and each of them would be released in a wave, like the Walt Disney Treasures and the Looney Tunes Super Stars were). With neither these formats or the shorts I decided to place on the first three sets looking like they would work, I think I need some help here.

Which way should I go: a collection in the same format as the Golden and Platinum Collections, a wave with separate character/theme-specific discs, or the same as the former, but with themed discs this time?

Well...I'm liking what you added there, themed sets.

I just care about getting the missing cartoons out there on Blu-ray. Bonus stuff is great, but at this point, I want the focus to be on restoring/remastering all the LT/MM, in chronological order, that are absent from the previous official Golden/Platinum Collection releases. It is more balanced that way instead of focusing on individual character collections. That said, I would still easily buy the "wave" sets as you proposed, simply because you actually put a great deal of thought into it, and it looks like a nice plan.

So, what's the next step?

As much as I like your thought on the "focus" of my plan, I'm not sure releasing them in chronological order would be a good idea (the previous collections weren't released chronologically either, and if they had, the sales they received wouldn't be enough to warrant any more). Releasing character-themed sets in chronological order (much like the majority of the Walt Disney Treasures DVDs) sounds more logical, but your concern in how "balanced" they should be is giving me second thoughts.

When I first started compiling the collections together, I went with the first volume having discs themed to Bugs, Daffy, Chuck Jones, and a fourth disc full of assorted shorts, while the second volume had (another disc of) Bugs, Porky, Tex Avery, and "showbiz" discs. I'm worried that not a lot of my suggestions would sell well if they made it to retail, so I'm considering going back and doing either "waves" or Golden Collection-style sets with themes that would be both balanced and would sell relatively well in retail.

How should the first volume/wave go, and what shorts should be on it? If necessary, what new bonuses/commentaries could be included?

So, I've been thinking about going down one of three paths: do a chronological collection with three or four years per set, do character-specific collections, or do something similar to the Golden Collection and go with four themed discs. Which one of these paths should I go, and what would the contents of the first collection of wave contain?

(Each disc has 25 shorts on them, by the way)

Personally, I'd advise to take the "Golden Collection" route, with 4 themed discs on each set.

As for disc themes:
1. Bugs and Daffy
2. One-Shots
3. Tex Avery
4. Assorted Nuts

Those don't sound like bad ideas for disc themes, but I'm not sure all of them would be ideal for the first volume. A disc about Bugs and/or Daffy would be a no-brainer, but the other three discs could, realistically, be saved for later volumes. What other themes and characters could other discs be about?

Maybe a Porky disc, featuring the correct versions of some cartoons which suffered from a few gaffes when released on Porky Pig 101?

A Jones-themed disc is another thought, but that might have to wait 'til another volume.

Okay, those two sound like good ideas.

If we were to go the Golden Collection route, we should reach up to ten volumes, each one of them with 25 shorts on each of the discs and if put together, making up nearly all of the classic "Looney Tunes" and "Merrie Melodies" released. Which disc themes could go on each volume (aside from the six you gave me)?

the problem with something like this is i dont think golden age animation enthusiasts are not clamoring for yet another release containing the same cartoons that previous sets already had. i personally think bugs and daffy have gotten enough exposure as it is as first disc stars too, though i definitely wouldnt mind having their last handful of unrestored shorts being released.
in addition to that, personally, id like to see just all the cartoons released in chronological order, or maybe just dedicated character sets. problem with those is, chronological sets wouldnt get to the good stuff until maybe porky came along at least, and nobody would even inch towards the stuff made by depatie-freleng and bill hendricks. and character sets dont give one-shot shorts a chance.
another idea for a set is shorts based on directors, though there are those select few directors who didnt last as long as avery or jones. (ub iwerks did a total of only two cartoons for example)

Here's what I'm thinking:

Commentaries:
Greg Ford on "Baseball Bugs", "Robot Rabbit", "Little Red Riding Rabbit", "Along Came Daffy", "Ain't That Ducky?"
Jerry Beck on "Rabbit Hood", "Hair-Raising Hare", "A Pest in the House", "Yankee Doodle Daffy", "Daffy Duck Hunt", "The Ducksters", "Gorilla My Dreams" (same as on LTGC Vol. 2), "Daffy Duck in Hollywood"

Danny Goldmark on "Rabbit of Seville"
John K on "The Great Piggy Bank Robbery"

Other bonus features:

I get what you're saying, but the main purpose of my collection idea was to remaster every main Looney Tune, whether it be a double-dip or something that hasn't been released to home video yet. Releasing them in chronological order does sound like a good idea, but you also have a point there: the LT&MM we know and love didn't really come about until Porky's debut, and the majority of the post-1964 cartoons are, to put it lightly, loathed by numerous animation historians and fans.

About director-specific sets.......as much as I would like to say that sounds very interesting indeed, The Bugs Bunny Video Guide says that the performance of the Mouse Chronicles set had an "adverse effect" on a release of Tex Avery-directed MGM shorts, and Warner Home Video wouldn't consider such a DVD or Blu-ray a best-selling item (I really am at a loss of words; see the headline for December 6 for more information). You do make yet another point about the minor directors; they're not enough to headline an entire disc or set to themselves.

In all honesty, a release of randomly-picked shorts, like the Golden and Platinum Collections were, would make sense to start out with, and if my idea does reach the tenth volume, then a chronological collection could be released at the same time.

Anyhow, what new bonus features would anyone here like to see?

Neat idea for the Porky disc! (Replace My Favorite Duck, which was a title I was just thinking about putting on the fourth volume's Daffy disc, with You Ought to Be in Pictures (inarguably one of the most popular B&W Porkys) and we'd be all set)

What bonus features could go on Disc 2?

Currently thinking:

Commentaries:
Jerry Beck on "Porky's Duck Hunt", "Calling Dr. Porky", "You Ought to Be in Pictures", "The Lone Stranger and Porky", "Porky's Hero Agency", "Bye Bye Bluebeard", "Often an Orphan"
Michael Barrier on "I Haven't Got a Hat", "Porky in Wackyland", "Kitty Kornered", "Porky's Pooch", "Wholly Smoke", "Africa Squeaks"
Greg Ford on "Porky's Party", "Brother Brat", "Dime to Retire", "Boobs in the Woods", "Trap-Happy Porky"

Other:
"The Porky Pig Show" opening
"Ham on Wry" (I think that's the name of it), "Animal Quackers" featurettes
Lobby card gallery
Music and music/effects only tracks for certain cartoons
