Life is not about the second chances. It's about a little mouse and his voyage to an exciting new land. That, my friend, is what life is.

Sir, do you have any Warrants?
I got their first CD, but you can't have it, motherfucker!

What about Wile?  Because my favorite of his is still "Operation: Rabbit."

Yeah, if you count his Road Runner-less stuff, that's my favorite as well.

Bump because this thread can use one.

Most of them.

Like the Disney thread, there isn't much I can add that hasn't been said before.

Oh man, this one is a blast.

Also the only cartoon that Stan Freberg got voice credit for.

But yeah, I edited links into my first post. Not everything is in great quality and I didn't have time to check if they're all unedited or not. They are all in English though, I made sure of that.

I realized that I didn't post a Pepe short, despite liking him as much as I do.

This is probably my favorite of his.

I especially love his "cover" of "As Time Goes By".

I mentioned in the Disney shorts thread that I rather enjoy the wartime cartoons, so here's a few from Warners:

Scrap Happy Daffy
Daffy The Commando
Draftee Daffy
Russian Rhapsody
Herr Meets Hare(Never released my butt; this copy even has the CN watermark on it, and it's restored on the sixth Golden Collection)
Tokyo Jokio(Now this one is rare, and hard to find in good shape)
Bugs Bunny Nips the Nips(Now this one makes me cringe, moreso than any of the supposed Censored 11)

Never noticed this, but pause the video on Daffy The Commando at about 1:35 for a surprise.  Let's just say it puts Janet Jackson's Super Bowl appearance to shame.

Hmm, and I think Toonheads aired this once too.

Wonder if that was unedited or not.

This version of the cartoon is restored, probably ripped straight off the sixth GC, so it depends on if the print that was shown on Toonheads was restored or not.  Here's an a.a.p. copy of the same cartoon, but the print is way more faded, something the a.a.p. prints are known for, thus the image isn't as noticeable.  The Toonheads airing more than likely would have been a Turner dub, but I don't know how clean that print would have been.

I recently watched one of my tapes, Daffy Duck: The Nuttiness Continues..., and I think it's a pretty good collection of the Duck from Warner's library at the time.

It contains:

Duck Amuck
The Daffy Doc
Beanstalk Bunny
Deduce, You Say
Rabbit Fire
Dripalong Daffy
The Scarlet Pumpernickel
Porky's Duck Hunt

All great cartoons, and none of which are edited (I think "Porky's Duck Hunt" might've been sped but, but to be completely honest, I can't think of a print I've seen of the short which was in normal speed). It's a little repetitive on content, though- 5 out of these shorts contain Porky, while the other three have Bugs (again, one of each character's appearance was more like a cameo, but still), and 5 of these show up on the first Golden Collection.

Still, for it's time, this was a great tape that gave you some excellent Daffy Duck cartoons. I have a few more Looney Tunes tapes I've recently picked up, but this one is the highlight to me so far.

Was Porky's Duck Hunt colorized?  I'm willing to bet it was, but still, I'm curious.
