WB Cartoons Golden Jubilee title card

The Warner Bros. Cartoons Golden Jubilee 24 Karat Collection of Looney Tunes videotapes, released in 1985 and discontinued in 1992, is interesting in a few ways. It was the only VHS series in which black and white cartoons were featured in their original black-and-white presentation (until the Looney Tunes: The Collector's Edition VHS tapes came out). This series would also be the only time Foghorn Leghorn, Pepe Le Pew, and Speedy Gonzales would be honored with their own videotapes (though Foghorn and Pepe would eventually got their own installments in the Looney Tunes Superstars DVD series in the early 2010s).

Most of these cartoons have already been restored on DVD and Blu-ray, but the rest of the cartoons that have not been added to DVD and Blu-ray have remained unrestored.

Each tape began with a newly animated sequence in which the police are chasing the Tasmanian Devil (who ironically did not have a spotlight video in this collection) on a motorcycle. Taz drives his bike through a theater in which Bugs, Daffy, and Porky are on stage with many characters marching across the stage behind them, akin to the beginning of The Bugs Bunny Show (complete with a few instrumental bars of "This Is It" accompanying the scene).

Some prints of the cartoons in these videos are time-compressed (sped-up from their original speed).  These titles include "You Ought to Be in Pictures", "The Wearing of the Grin", and "Dough For the Do-Do" on the PORKY PIG tape and "Porky's Duck Hunt" on the DAFFY DUCK tape.

An asterisk will be shown to dictate what cartoons that have not been restored or as of yet been added on DVD or Blu-ray.

  • Some of the cartoons in the video collections have colored borders around their opening titles (although the end titles have no borders at all). These colored borders are not seen on later VHS releases since the late-1980s (even if the cartoons have borders around the opening titles the colors are limited to black only). Some of these video prints from the Golden Jubilee collection even turned up on Cartoon Network/Boomerang airings since 1999. See image below for more details.

    Blue border appears around the opening titles of "Rabbit Seasoning", as seen on the Elmer Fudd tape.
