Looney Tunes: Porky Pig 101

by bderoes | created - 19 Sep 2017 | updated - 11 Dec 2017 | Public

2017 set from Warner Archive https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B074ZMZGJS/

I've included where else the titles have been released: GC3.2 means Golden Collection Volume 3 disc 2, PCB2 means Platinum Collection Blu-Ray Volume 2. Movie titles in [square brackets] are ones I don't own, but got info on wikipedia filmography.

Companion podcast, which meanders through cartoon history, ownership and home release of cartoons for the first 25ish minutes, but the remainder of the 74 minutes are primarily about this set: https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/warner-archive-collection-podcast/e/51480436?autoplay=true
