Classicflix just raised their price on this set to $39.99 as of today, so keep that in mind, but heard WB SHOP has some kind of sale that brings the set down to $35.99 now...http://www.wbshop.com/product/porky+...e=&from=Search

Re: Looney Tunes & Merrie Melodies on DVD: The Official Thread

I'm still on the fence with regards to pressed discs vs DVD-R. Has anybody ever had an issue with DVD-Rs going bad after a few years?

Seems that there's a lot of problems with the Porky 101 set.

I'm honestly not overly concerned about the music edits. I grew up watching these on tv syndication with the intro edits and whatnot. I'm more concerned about DVD-Rs degrading within a couple years.

It's such a wonderful series of toons but the way the Archives are handling and promoting and marketing this set seems to be very perplexing and concerning and it sounds like an either if or else scenario when it comes to it selling well, but more effort should have have been placed when erecting this set at the beginning by the folks over there at the Archives.

Re: Looney Tunes & Merrie Melodies on DVD: The Official Thread

I'm totally not happy with the way the Porky Pig one's being handled. Sure, if you purchase early from the warner store you'll likely receive pressed but you pay a premium for that gamble. Lots and lots of people refuse to purchase MOD at all. That limits the potential sales right there. It looks like this set is being set up to fail so they can say "Well... PP didn't sell very well so we're not doing any more."

Re: Looney Tunes & Merrie Melodies on DVD: The Official Thread

I received mine this weekend and the discs were pressed. Plugged the first disc in and watched a couple of shorts. No complaints, maybe they're not restored and not HD, but they look good (upscaled nicely) and were plenty watchable.

I'm not particularly a purist when it comes to the intros and endings as long as the feature is intact.
