Season 3[edit | edit source]

This season is the next most complete, with twenty-one episodes available. There were two specials entitled "The Twelve Missing Hares" and "The Worst Cartoons Ever Made" that ended up not being aired. The former was possibly going to show the twelve banned Bugs Bunny cartoons collectively referred to as The Twelve Missing Hares, and the latter was likely to going to showcase various different cartoons infamous for their poor quality. The specials may have remained unaired due to the former containing cartoons infamous for their offensive content, and the latter likely heavily criticizing the cartoons featured.[3][4]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • In S02E06, "Midnight in the Bookstore", during the weekend of March 19th, 1999, "You're An Education" was replaced with a redrawn print of "I Like Mountain Music" (WB). "Speaking Of The Weather" (WB) was the cartoon shown after that. "Book Revue" (WB) then followed. New wraparounds were made for "I Like Mountain Music" and "Speaking Of The Weather" during the weekend of October 6th, 2000.
  • In S02E20, "Toro! Toro!", technical difficulties caused "The Mice Will Play" (WB) and “Sheep Wrecked” (MGM) to play instead of “Bully for Bugs”, and “Senor Droopy”, respectively. There was also the usage of bumpers from S02E19, "The Nice Mice of Warner Bros”. The correct cartoons and segments were reinstated on October 1st, 1999.
  • The only sort of home media release the show has ever had was the Toonheads special: The Lost Cartoons and can be found on Disc 3 of The Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 1. as a bonus feature
