Looney Tunes Golden Collection: Volume 3 is a DVD box set from Warner Home Video that was released on October 25, 2005.[1] It contains 60 Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies theatrical short subject cartoons, 9 documentaries, 32 commentary tracks from animators and historians, 11 "vintage treasures from the vault", and 11 music-only or music-and-sound-effects audio tracks.

Each disc has an introduction by Whoopi Goldberg, who is a huge fan of the Warner cartoon characters, advising the viewers that some of the cartoons on the set may contain content distasteful or offensive to modern social sensibilities (particularly the racial stereotypes), but will be shown because "removing these inexcusable images and jokes from this collection would be the same as saying [these prejudices] never existed. So they are presented here to accurately reflect a part of our history that can not and should not be ignored".

(#): The original opening and ending title sequences have been restored for this release, replacing the Blue Ribbon reissue titles. However on the ending titles, the 1941-1955 ending rendition of "Merrily We Roll Along" (the Merrie Melodies theme music) is used instead of the special 1937 rendition, used only on this cartoon. This is due to the 1995 Turner "dubbed version" (which uses this rendition) being used as the source for restoration of the soundtrack.
(*): The original ending music has been restored for this release, replacing the Blue Ribbon reissue ending music.
(**): The Original title ending card has been restored for this Blue Ribbon reissue.
(*#): Cartoon's ending music glitches at the beginning. Also happens on all other prints (including original, AAP print, and 1995 dubbed version).

Reception[edit]

In The New York Sun, author and critic Gary Giddins had complained that Looney Tunes Golden Collection: Volume 2 and Looney Tunes Golden Collection: Volume 1 were lacking in black-and-white shorts, and seemed to avoid the more politically incorrect cartoons in the series. When his review was reprinted in the book, Natural Selection: Gary Giddins on Comedy, Film, Music, and Books, Giddins noted that Volume 3 made up for its forerunners' shortcomings by including some of the racial caricatures of the series, preceded by an explanatory introduction by Whoopi Goldberg.[5]
