How many cartoons did Looney Tunes make? Like as in total amount of episodes or shorts?

I think whitsbrain is the Looney Tunes expert 'round these parts.

If I remember correctly, they made over 200 shorts, and possibly over 300.

The one reason I never had a desire to get any of the collections, is each one seems to offer a different variety. (at least some have a few others don't have etc. etc.)
If they in fact have that many tunes, then I'm sure we will never see one "definitive" release with every single one.

Kinda sucks honestly.

I have all six volumes of the Golden Collections on DVD. I bought the first Platinum set, but haven't splurged on Platinum Vol. 2. The Golden DVDs have almost everything on them already. I just don't know if I want to double dip for a couple of things. I know that Warner Bros will NEVER release the majority of them on ANY format for collectors. They may stream them on Warner Archive, which would be better than nothing. At least completists could track which shorts they have or haven't seen then. I'm sure Warner will not fully restore them, though. There's no profit in it for them.

Is there a list of all the original Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies cartoons and original air dates?

I heard there's a new Looney Tunes series actually. Nostalgia Critic gave it a pretty good review. He also did some good interviews with the people involved in Animaniacs.

Yeah, there are many. Most will never see a DVD or Blu-Ray release. I think streaming technology will give us more of them to see, but physical media, probably not.

I haven't really looked over the list I sent but I don't think many of the unavailable shorts have fans clamouring for them. Too bad, really...

Yes it is. I mean I haven't seen another Platinum Collection release even mentioned anywhere, which sucks. I'm hoping that endeavor isn't dead.

I think it may be dead. There just isn't a demand for the obscure shorts and most people aren't falling for the ol' double dip. DVD is good enough for most. Again, too bad...

Glad to see a 3rd volume is coming this summer! :clap:

I am just about finishing up the 2nd volume; just a couple of the extra features on the last disc remain.

I recently heard Jerry Beck say that the 3rd Platinum Series set will be the last on Blu-Ray.

IMO, the only way we will ever see rare cartoons is through streaming or on-demand services like Warner Archives.
