Stars of Space Jam boxed set

Stars of Space Jam is a collection of Looney Tunes VHS tapes released on November 26, 1996 to promote the release of Space Jam. A Japanese LaserDisc of this set was released around the same time. Each tape/side featured six cartoons, most of which had not been made available on home video before. This was also notably the first video series with a video featuring the Tasmanian Devil. The series was discontinued around the time the Looney Tunes Presents video series came out.

Each tape in this series began with a short version of the "Warner Bros. Family Entertainment" logo as seen on Warner Bros. Animation's cartoon shows (albeit with a short Merrie Melodies fanfare).

DVD editions released on October 9, 2018, with some slight changes to the Bugs and Daffy releases.

VHS and DVD Differences

  • On the DVD version of Stars of Space Jam, on the Bugs Bunny DVD collection "Barbary-Coast Bunny" is replaced by "Ali Baba Bunny"[5], while on the Daffy Duck DVD collection "Holiday for Drumsticks" is replaced by "Daffy Duck Slept Here" [6]. Hence on this DVD set Daffy Duck Slept Here is the only cartoon from the a.a.p. package in this DVD collection, which was not possible back when the original Stars of Space Jam VHS collection came out in 1996 due to the pre-1948 Looney Tunes shorts were still under ownership of Turner Entertainment (while MGM/UA Home Video still held the home video rights for these shorts) at the time.
  • On the DVD version of Stars of Space Jam, all cartoon shorts which had already been restored and remastered for DVD and Blu-ray have their previous unrestored prints from the original Stars of Space Jam 1996 VHS collection have been replaced by their latest restored Blu-ray/DVD transfers, though shorts that are not yet restored such as "Hot Cross Bunny", "Hare Splitter", "Boston Quackie", "Hot-Rod and Reel!" and "Zip 'n Snort" still keep their previous unrestored transfers from the 1996 VHS collection.[7] However on the Sylvester and Tweety DVD collection, both "Tree Cornered Tweety" and "Tweet Zoo" still keep their unrestored VHS transfers despite both shorts having been restored and remastered for the I Love Tweety Volume 2 Japanese DVD for reasons unknown [8].
    • Both the restored transfers of "Apes of Wrath" and "Person to Bunny" are presented in their original correct 4:3 aspect ratios on this DVD set, as opposed to the cropped widescreen versions as seen on their respective Looney Tunes Super Stars DVD sets they originated from [9].
    • Much like the original 1996 VHS collection, all the cartoons on the 2018 DVD collection are uncut and uncensored.
  • The entire contents of the Taz DVD collection were previously released on Looney Tunes Platinum Collection: Volume 1 Blu-ray set (consisting of all five fully restored Taz cartoons from the "classic" era, "Devil May Hare", "Bedevilled Rabbit", "Ducking the Devil", "Bill of Hare", and "Dr. Devil and Mr. Hare", in their correct 4:3 formats, including "Fright Before Christmas" as a bonus feature on the Blu-ray set).[10]
  • On the DVD version of Stars of Space Jam, on the Taz DVD collection, "Fright Before Christmas" is presented as the last ten minutes of the Bugs Bunny's Looney Christmas Tales TV special, including the surrounding bridging sequences and the special's entire end credits, beginning with the part where Bugs and the gang caroling to "Jingle Bells", as opposed to the stand-alone version of the short (with recreated titles) seen on past home video releases and on TV airings.[11]
