    Warner Archive has announced Porky Pig 101--a 5-disc DVD set that collects 99 black-and-white Porky cartoons and two Technicolor Merrie Melodies, for a total of 101 cartoons.

    The cartoons will be presented in their original aspect ratio, and will feature commentaries on select shorts.

    Jerry Beck will be discussing the release on the Stu's Show podcast today at 7 PM EST/4 PM PST. Stu's Show can be found here.

      I'm really happy the Warner Home Video is releasing a new Looney Tunes DVD in 3 years now when are they going to release Tom and Jerry Golden Collection Volume 2 and Censored 11 DVD?

      According to a past Stu's Show episode, they did have Tom and Jerry Golden Collection Volume 2 (minus "Mouse Cleaning" and "Casanova Cat") pressed, finished and ready to be released--until the whole controversy over the exclusion of those cartoons put the kibosh on the whole thing.

      If they're not going to release the set, at least release the new transfers of the not-as-offensive cartoons on DVD.

      Also, wasn't the Censored 11 set delayed indefinitely because of bad DVD sales or something?

      Yes, but it will need to have a release date eventually. Jerry Beck said someday but not until the sales for DVD/Blu-ray go up. Maybe this Porky DVD is to test the waters.

    • Hopefully this Porky Pig set will sell well enough to finally warrant the Censored 11 release.

    • If the cartoons are restored it's worth selling. If they are unrestored then the quality is not worth it and people would probably want refunds.

        Loading editor
    • Apparently a factory-pressed version of the set can be ordered through Warner Archive. All other online retailers will have the set as a DVD-R.

      Also, if you read the comments on that Warner Archive post, the shorts will be completely uncut!

      Beck said on Stu's Show that if you liked the content of the Censored 11, you will enjoy the Porky set.

      Beck just said no; they're doing them without any correction. Ones that were already restored on the Golden Collections will be presented that way. The Warner titles will be intact, though. So no, they didn't go to the negatives.

      I'm still getting this set anyway upon release. I hope this funds further releases of cartoons.

    • Hopefully the prints they use will be better than the ones currently on the Internet. I've only managed to acquire non-redrawn versions of certain cartoons in 240p or 360p.

      I really hope they release the remaining black-and-white Looney Tunes. There are several Daffy Duck cartoons, like "A Coy Decoy" and "The Impatient Patient", that aren't available both not redrawn and in anything higher than 240p.

      Jerry Beck said that any cartoons released on Looney Tunes Golden Collections will be presented the way they are on the Golden Collections. "Porky's Railroad" was released on Looney Tunes Golden Collection: Volume 4, so I assume that when it is included on Porky Pig 101, the Looney Tunes Golden Collection transfer will be used. That is, restored and in black-and-white.

      I pre-ordered it off the Warner Archive in the hopes I'll get the pressed version.

      If they can, I recommend people order this set instead of waiting for people to post it to Dailymotion or whatever. That way, Warner will have the incentive to release more Looney Tunes shorts.

      I know for sure that will happen too. And not to forget that people on YouTube will upload the ones that are in the public domain from the DVD too. Remember that a couple have fallen into the public domain, which means they are allowed to be on YouTube for the most parts.

      I don't know it costs quite a lot of money for a bunch of non-digitally remastered prints. While I do support the shorts restoration and all, it would be better if they released the Porky 101 DVD in addition to the DVD on Netflix. Netflix is one of the top grossing apps on the App Store and people would watch Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies on Netflix all the time. Netflix pays them to have their content and everytime the content is watched they will make more money.

      I think the Netflix alternative will also help them gross back profits.

      I will get it eventually, just not right now.

      Netflix would be a good option and all, and I would support any opportunities for Warner Bros. to put their animated stuff on that platform (it's all shuffled around at the moment--Animaniacs on Netflix, most Cartoon Network shows on Hulu, and some Warner Bros. stuff on Boomerang). The problem with that is that if Warner Bros. decides to take the content off the platform, you're out of luck. Extra out-of-luck points if they take it to a platform that isn't available in your country. I like Netflix and all, but this is why I prefer DVDs and Blu-Rays.

      It's ironic how people "cut cords" to subscribe to Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, or a combination of the three. A few years later, badda bing badda boom, we've got Boomerang, that Disney streaming service, a DC-related streaming service, and more in addition to the Big Three as the content shuffles around the different services.

    • After seeing the 2 screenshots from the new-to-DVD titles taken from the Porky Pig 101, I can't see the difference since the restoration quality on the interpositive prints look identical to the remastered film negatives.

      But it's too early to talk about this, so lets wait until the DVD comes out next month.

    • Screenshots!

      The picture quality seems to fluctuate, but overall looks really good. Most of the new transfers look like Golden Collection or Super Stars prints, but with better encoding. Others are a notch down, like they were sourced from a worn or later-generation print (like "Plane Dippy" and "Porky's Picnic"), but still pretty good, all things considered. Don't be mistaken; these are far, far, far above the quality of the copies floating around the Internet.

      Since there are people elsewhere who have gotten theirs already, does anyone know if "Porky the Wrestler" and "Porky's Movie Mystery" have new footage, or do they still have cuts in the same places?

      (Pretty much all of these links are also on the IAD Forums, for those who don't check both sites.)

      • "Fish Tales" does not begin with the shield zooming in and still has "The Merry-go-Round Broke Down" over its opening titles, and an abrupt skip in the music track from the opening card cue to the iris-out when Porky is carrying the fishing rod.
      • "Westward Whoa" has a strange editing error as well: it begins with the 1939-1940 variant of "The Merry-Go-Round Broke Down" but segways into the title card music before it finishes! (note the difference in audio quality)
      • Near the very end of "Shanghaied Shipmates", where the crew is whipping the villain swimming in the ocean, I noticed two glitchy frames where random squares are on the screen. I don't know if I got a bad disc or not, since my disc had absolutely no scratches.

      Well for some reason, most copies of the 40's black and white Looney Tunes use the 1937 theme on both the original and computer colorized versions. Like on my VHS of Looney Tunes The Collector's Edition: Porky & Daffy, the 1937 theme is heard in both Porky's Prize Pony, and Porky's Cafe, even though they are the original black and white versions.

      (And yes, WikiExpertXV, the 1937 "Porky's Signature" theme inexplicably and unfortunately shows up on a few 1940s cartoons.)

      It was probably from the sunset prints that they changed the audio and stuff. If they had used the audio from the original negative, never would have had this problem

      I've never seen a Sunset print that has the mismatched opening theme issue, so I don't know how they got the audio mixed up in the first place.

      possibly redrawn then. Maybe someone messed with them.

      I knew it, since I'm familiar with the cartoons using the incorrect opening themes.

      But feel free to correct the opening themes when uploading them on the internet anytime.

      • "Fish Tales" does not begin with the shield zooming in and still has "The Merry-go-Round Broke Down" over its opening titles, and an abrupt skip in the music track from the opening card cue to the iris-out when Porky is carrying the fishing rod.

      But why does it have "The Merry-Go-Round Broke Down"? That short was released before "Rover's Rival".

      I do remember frequently seeing the re-drawn colorized print of "Fish Tales" on Cartoon Network which uses the correct Looney Tunes opening theme of course. But nobody has posted that copy online unfortunately.

      • "Westward Whoa" has a strange editing error as well: it begins with the 1939-1940 variant of "The Merry-Go-Round Broke Down" but segways into the title card music before it finishes! (note the difference in audio quality)
      • Near the very end of "Shanghaied Shipmates", where the crew is whipping the villain swimming in the ocean, I noticed two glitchy frames where random squares are on the screen. I don't know if I got a bad disc or not, since my disc had absolutely no scratches.
      • "Porky the Wrestler" still has that abrupt cut (see "Censorship"). The edit is clearly physical.

      Do you mind posting the full set for us?

      If you're talking about me posting the entire set online, unfortunately I don't want to do that, primarily for legal reasons.

    • For anyone who is really upset with the Porky Pig 101 DVD having incorrect audio on the LT opening and closing themes, and the incorrect music cues, I did a petition for WB to fix this problem by making disc replacements.

      Yes, that's lazy. If they aren't going to remaster the cartoons to full, they should at least get the original audio correct.

      I just emailed Jerry Beck about the petition, but I don't think they are going to bother issuing replacement discs this time. Back in 2007 when they did issue replacements for the Golden Collection Volume 2, one, the audio was messed up from the 2004 release, which was fixed in the 2007 re-release and replacement discs, and two, profit margins were very high so it was worth it to replace them. Now since the DVD market is overshadowed by Netflix, Amazon Prime, and other online sites, it may be hard for them to override the audio and then make discs for every single customer who wants a replacement. It may be considered cause of customer satisfaction and stuff like that, but I don't think it will happen 100%.

      What WB should do is restore the entire Warner Bros. and MGM Cartoon library (if they can from safety negatives) and put them all on Netflix. Netflix is one of the top grossing apps on the App Store and makes a hell ton of money. By uploading them onto Netflix, you can guarantee lots of people will watch them giving back money to Warner Bros.. The profit margin would be worth it considering how many of millions of people have Netflix around the globe. Everyone wins.

      Why not just release it on other internet streaming services (i.e. their own Boomerang streaming service)? They could also put it out on iTunes and Google Play if they really wanted to.

      Plus this way you give the money directly to WB, so they're more inclined to restore more cartoons, or at least just release more we don't have yet.

      Transferred what? 35mm prints are original negatives. Most of these prints, since they have the wrong audio and cards are I think transferred from 16mm or 8mm BW prints. Only the cartoons previously restored on DVD/Blu-ray are from the 35mm prints.

      35mm prints aren't necessarily the original negatives. The original prints that were released to theaters were certainly 35mm, but they weren't the original negatives. Also, didn't I hear nitrate material was used? Those were probably 35mm since nitrate 16mm film is just a rumor.

    • I also think that it's transferred from 16mm or 8mm prints. They all have wrong cards, audio (especially intro/ending). Like one print of "Mutt and Jeff in Westward Whoa", that is easier to find than original one with Kromocolor logo. Kromocolor does not have info on the internet, but it's sorta of bootleg company. They are active up to 1930's. Looney Tunes's color process was "Technicolor" (at least it has info on Wikipedia, especially Russian version). On the VK.com, you can find, for example, Russian prints of Yankee Doodle Daffy. That print is acted by one person, leaving English audio in the background, and having borders in the intro, so yeah.

      But if you say Kromocolor is only active up til the 1930s those 16mm and 8mm prints weren't created until 1955 upon the sale of copyrights and the handing of those negatives to Guild and Associated Artists Productions.

      Usually original negative is 35mm though. It could have been 35mm Eastmancolor prints for the Associated Artists Productions cartoons then. However, I think they are 16mm and 8mm considering the fact they look really ugly. Actually in fact, the original negative gets worse everytime you play it so it could've been a duplicate that could have been tossed out easily. Now that everything is digital, I assume most of the original negatives are gone or transferred digitally, like DVD.

      This is not about the prints of original titles that Thad K. uploaded. I believe someone said somewhere that analog prints were used for some of the cartoons on Porky Pig 101, and I was wondering whether Thad K. was originally the person who said that.
