Announced at San Diego, and available for pre-order on Amazon right now, is the so-called Looney Tunes Platinum Collection: Volume One.
Several of the shorts included were part of the previous DVD sets, but not all of them, and most that were count as genuine cream-of-the-crop cartoons and I for one would like to get my HD collection started.
How long until Iím replacing these with 2k or 4k files, however? Anything less than ten years just isnít going to cut it in my household. Itís double and triple dips like this one which will finally get me killed by my wife.
