WHV listens to us!
« on: April 01, 2014, 03:31:06 pm »
In a stunning and unprecedented move, Warner Home Video announced that 2014 will see the end of double dips, and the release of all 199 post B&W Looney Tunes shorts on DVD, and the Tom and Jerry Golden Collection Volume 2 with both "Mouse Cleaning" and "Casanova Cat", and the complete Tex Avery on Blu-ray, and the Censored Eleven, AND the entire Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies output released on Warner Archive!!!

"It was the funniest thing," a spokesperson for WHV said. "One day we looked on the Internet Animation Database forums, and were stunned to see a wide variety of petitions addressed, why, addressed directly to us! And what surveys! 10 signatures on one, 39 on another, 49 on another? Why, that's almost 50 signatures on one survey! We've got a veritable cash cow right under our noses, with monetary udders just waiting to be squeezed!"

The atmosphere at WHV was abuzz with excitement, until a lone employee raised an important question: "How will we organize all of these cartoons?" Miraculously, the IAD forums came to the rescue again. Perusing old threads, WHV found hypothetical wishlist after hypothetical wishlist after hypothetical wishlist after hypothetical wishlist. Dozens of suggested DVDs, with enticing themes such as "Cool Cat and Friends" and "Porky and Daffy Black and White Classics".

"These things will sell like hotcakes," a WHV rep exlaimed. "I mean, have you looked at some of these titles? 'Jonesin' for Chuck'? 'Wile E. Coyote and Ralph Wolf'? 'Black and White Fun'? I thought we had a solid-themed set with our own 'Mouse Chronicles', but these guys knocked it out of the park! Some of them even included little emoticons of the characters with each list, which was very helpful to remind us who's who."

Only one issue remained: money. As everyone at the IAD forums knows, cash-strapped WHV just hasn't had the funds to put into cartoon restoration, resulting in a parade of frustrating double dips. But then came the most unexpected announcement of all:

"We actually do have the money," WHV confessed. "We were lying this whole time because we're lazy. But now that we've seen these petitions and know the public demand for classic cartoons, and now that we have some guidance on how to plan and organize our releases, we decided the least we could do is use some of the billions of dollars we're secretly sitting on to get these cartoons out there. And boy are we confident they'll do well."

WHV HAS already listened to us.  It's the legal department that needs to listen to us.  Joke failed  ;D

All of these "jokes" will probably be moved over by tomorrow.  If they were in that thread first, the joke is already over.

This must be my favorite April Fool's prank here on the forum today. I can just picture this entire meeting between the WHV executives.
