How could you go wrong with these, especially in HD!
Do not get Volume 4 AT ALL. Volumes 1 to 3 mix up the shorts nicely and evenly - Volume 4 doesn't. Each disc is ALL either Bugs\Elmer, Bugs\Daffy, then Wile E. Coyote\Road Runner, etc. VERY BORING. I own on 1 to 4 on DVD.
But, Volumes 1 to 3... EXTREMELY LEGENDARY. Imagine Simpsons or Family Guy still running re-runs in 2060 to 2070. Crazy.
Now release just 'The Flintstones' on Blu-ray, please.

I picked this up on Amazon for just under $20. If I didn't already own the previous Looney Tunes Golden Collections, I'd say it's a great bargain for that price and a worthwhile purchase. However, I see no noticeable improvement in picture quality in going from DVD to BluRay, at least not for the vast majority of cartoons.

The real reason for buying the BluRay over the DVD is the added 3rd disc with lots of bonus (again, mostly previously released stuff) and the extra Tex Avery cartoons. Looney Tunes fans have long wanted a proper release of Tex Avery cartoons, but here it's a mixed blessing because these were not remastered and do not look as good as the other cartoons. Also, if you've already got the previous collections, there are only about 10 "new to DVD" cartoons here.

The Golden Collections had 60 cartoons per set and lots of bonus features. These Platinum sets have only 50 cartoons each but are priced lower. However, most of the cartoons were already released and few are new to collectors which makes it hard to justify the cost. A new, third Platinum Collection is due out soon... from what I've read on-line so far, it doesn't seem worth buying as it has hardly any new to DVD cartoons. Again, if you don't already own the Golden Collections, these platinum BluRay collections are good when you find them on sale, otherwise wait for the sale.

Cheers!

I am a huge Looney Tunes fan and have been collecting all that I can from the days of VHS through DVDs and now the Blu-ray Platinum Series. I swore I wouldn't buy Blu-ray after all that I have on DVD but I was given the first of the platinum series for my birthday and when I saw the image quality and how deep they went into the Looney Tunes vault, I had to get more and I have no regrets, in fact I am really stoked with them. You will be too...

NOTE: This volume had a defect on one of the shorts that caused all of my blu-rays freeze so badly that they would not even power down unless I unplugged them. I reported the issue to Amazon, requesting a replacement and the replacement was shipped out LITERALLY 4 hours later on a SUNDAY and I had it in my hand 48 hrs later - for real. For this reason and many others, Amazon continues to be my go to shopping source. With over 180 family wide purchases, we have never had a problem of any kind and my first replacement request exceeded expectations.

UPDATE: Have thoroughly checked replacement disk set (which was a pleasure, not a chore) and this set is perfect.

Time to order volume 3!

Fun times, good memories... might make you feel a bit old! They really cut back from the Platinum Collection Volume One, which was a 4-5 disc wide nicely printed disc holder to a standard bluray sized disc holder, but for the price, I can't complain.

Cartoon remastering quality isn't going to knock your socks off if you already had the DVD collections, but still very impressive nonetheless. Nice to rewatch these classics!

I ordered this item because of the Tex Avery MGM cartoons included in it. Wow! "Red Hot Riding Hood," "Swingshift Cinderella" et al on Blu-ray! Sharp, brilliant high definition! Imagine my disappointment when the product arrived, I loaded up the disc containing said MGM Avery treasures, and it looked like I was watching them on VHS. Thanks for making it clear, Product Information, that these Avery cartoons are in "standard definition" (though they look even worse, with those intermittent comb-like parallel black lines that appear occasionally in the image in certain digital videos). My excitement face-planted to disappointment just like that.

Caveat emptor... suckers!

Wacthing these cartoons on a 72" screen, fully restored in Blu ray is a real threat, the picture is nice and clean, the colors are vibrants. There is a lot of cartoons that I never saw on TV before, and I'm also too young to have seing them at the Cinema. This set is Fun to wacht, because of those unseen cartoons that are like new for us!
