All shorts are presented uncensored and uncut, however 10 of the 15 shorts (marked with an asterisk) are cropped to widescreen, which angered most collectors.[citation needed] There are no special features or extras.[2]

Controversies[edit]

This was one of two first Looney Tunes Super Stars that released the majority of some of the cartoons from the post-1953 era, but in a 1:85 widescreen format. Warner Bros. has stated the reason for this was because that's how the post-1953 cartoons were shown in theater, which made many collectors upset as cartoons were filmed in Academy full-screened ratio, not widescreen.
