NOTE: This page features information on two laserdisc sets released in Japan by Warner Home Video, they are not available in the United States. Thanks to Bill Schacht for all the following information, and for making all the images. I had previously given credit to Greg Method for the Stars of Space Jam images. Although Greg did e-mail them to me, Bill informed me that he was the one who originally scanned them.
STARS OF SPACE JAM
"Stars of Space Jam" (PILA-1449) is a three disk (5-sided) limited edition
laserdisk set that was released by Pioneer LDC in 1997. The three disks
each have their own heavy cardboard sleeves, and they all come packaged in a
slipcase-style box. The box is white, and it is wrapped with an
orange-colored "obi" strip. The obi lists the Japanese name for this
collection ("Best of Warner Animation"), as well as the contents of this
collection (also in Japanese). Also included is a B&W insert that gives a
history of Warner Bros. cartoons and some background of the directors (in
Japanese). The collection is bilingual, in both English and Japanese.
The contents of this collection are the same as the 5-tape set that was
released in the USA.
1. Devil May Hare
2. Bedevilled Rabbit
3. Ducking The Devil
4. Bill Of Hare
5. Dr. Devil And Mr. Hare
6. The Fright Before Christmas
BUGS AND FRIENDS
In 1998, Pioneer LDC released a second limited edition boxed set. The
English title for this collection is "Bugs & Friends" (PILA-3001). Like the
previous set, this one includes 30 cartoons on 3 disks (5 sides). The look
of this set is very close to the first set (three cardboard sleeves in a
white slipcase-style box w/B&W insert). The "obi" strip this time around is
green and lists the Japanese name for this collection ("Best of Warner
Animation Vol.2"). Naturally, this set is bilingual in English and
The inner sleeves feature unique artwork that was never used in the USA.
Each side pairs Bugs with a different WB character. The compilations are
unique to this collection.
