BUGS BUNNY DVD in October - "The Essential Bugs Bunny" (condensed from box sets)

I was excited about this when I heard there was going to be three shorts that weren't released on the "Golden Collections," but they're not really the shorts I would spend money on ("Elmer's Candid Camera," "No Bonds Today," and "A Wild Hare" (which was already kind of released, sans remastered, as one of the extras from the box set). Essentially (no pun intended), it's just one disc worth its salt - good shorts one 'n all. But the 2nd?

Article from the NYTimes. Release day is October 12th, but my Sam's Club already had it out for around $19.

Urgh. Sad to see how these Loony Tunes shorts that had been released so amazingly have now come to poor releases and re-releases.

Actually, A Wild Hare was released remastered on the Warner Cartoon Oscar winners and nominee's 3 disc set
