Looney Tunes GC: Volume 4

Contents, and discriptions of the cartoons on Disc 2.
Frank Tashlin cartoons!
Case of the Stuttering Pig: Porky's family gets terrorized by a greedy lawyer who transforms himself into a monster.
Little Pancho Villa: A short mexican boy dreams of becoming the greatest bullfighter ever. He doesn't get exactly what he wished for however.
Little Beau Porky: Porky is a roman legion guard ordered to keep out a Roman villian.
Now That Summer is Gone: A small rodent, with a weakness for gambling, challenges other forest animals to various bets.
Porky in the Northwoods: Porky protects the animals of the forest from game wardens.
You're an Education: Another one of Tashlin's "Books Come to Life" cartoons, much like Have You Got Any Castles? available on Volume 2.
Porky's Railroad: Porky races a streamlined Silver Fish train against his own old beat-up train. One of the first cartoons with Mel Blanc as the voice of Porky.
Plane Daffy: Daffy Duck is a message courier bird delivering a military secret that a femme fatale Nazi spy is determined to get.
Porky the Fireman: The title pretty much says it all. Porky working as a fireman. Moving on...
Cracked Ice: An ice skater (a caricature of W.C. Fields) tries to steal some wine from a saint bernard rescue dog.
Puss N' Booty: A cat named Rudolph goes after his owner's newest pet canary bird. This was the last Looney Tunes cartoon produced in Black and White.
I Got Plenty of Mutton: A hungry wolf tries to snatch a few sheeps for breakfast. A guard goat outsmarts him.
Booby Hatched: A newborn duckling can't stand the cold and runs off to find warmth, only to run into a hungry wolf.
Porky's Poultry Plant: Tashlin's debut cartoon at Warner Bros. Porky tries to keep some hungry buzzards away from his barnyard animals, and crops.
The Stupid Cupid: One of Tashlin's final shorts. Cupid Elmer Fudd strikes Daffy Duck with an arrow, and the duck falls in love with an already-spoken-for chicken.

I wonder which blue ribbon cartoons will have their original titles?

I'm hoping for The Stupid Cupid. And hopefully whatever ending was cut out, gets restored.

According to Jerry Beck, the ending is lost. The cartoon is as seen on TV.
