The four discs in this collection are devoted to themes and subjects the cartoons in each disc have in common. The first disc consists entirely of cartoons starring the two top stars of Warner cartoons, Bugs Bunny and/or Daffy Duck. The second disc consists entirely of cartoons which lampoon fairy tales. The third disc consists entirely of cartoons either directed or co-directed by Bob Clampett. The fourth disc titled "Early Daze" features rarely seen cartoons from the 1930s and early 1940s which were made in black-and-white.
Continuing a pattern which began with Looney Tunes Golden Collection: Volume 3, the DVD set has a warning in the beginning of each disc that states that some of the cartoons contain ethnic and racial stereotypes that may be offensive to modern audiences; however, like the fourth volume, the warning is shown on a title card rather than done as a special introduction.
This volume did not sell as well as the previous volumes did, mainly due to the slump of the country's economy at this point, and partly due to stiff competition from DVD releases of Ratatouille and Spider-Man 3, as well as from not including a wider variety of Looney Tunes characters that the public would want. As a result, it was decided that both this and Volume 6 release outside of North America would be delayed/not occur. Eventually, however the fifth volume was released on April 18, 2011 in Region 2 UK.

In previous installments of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection, disc 1 contained Bugs Bunny-centric cartoons. Disc 1 in this volume, however, contains cartoons featuring Daffy Duck as well.
