The collection of the "Looney Tunes Super Stars" series is likely to expand, with possible releases on their way in the future, including ones for Yosemite Sam, Speedy Gonzales, Elmer Fudd, and others. However, Warner Bros. has not made a clear decision to release the remaining Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies that include one-time-only characters. Although Super Stars is the semi-successor to the Looney Tunes Golden Collection series, the true successor of the Golden Collection is Looney Tunes Platinum Collection. However, unlike the Platinum Collection, there will not be any special features in the Super Stars series.[9] Jerry Beck stated on Stu's Show on December 14, 2011 that he will be picking some cartoons for the future of the Super Stars line. [10]

There was originally plans to do another Daffy Duck release. But however, According to Jerry Beck on the Stu's Show from early this year, that due to the low sales, and since they have no remastering budgets for Warner Bros. to remaster more never-before-released on DVD and Blu-ray Looney Tunes shorts, the Super Stars series came to an abrupt end.

Controversies

The first two Looney Tunes Super Stars had released the majority the cartoons from the post-1953 era in a 1:85 widescreen format. Warner Bros. has stated the reason for this was because that is how the post-1953 cartoons were shown in theaters, which made many collectors upset as cartoons were filmed in Academy ratio not widescreen at that time (Cinemascope shorts being the only exception). On December 1, 2010, animation expert Jerry Beck explained on the Shokus Internet Radio call-in talk program, Stu's Show that Warner aimed this series not at collectors but at the mass market who expect it to fit on their widescreen TVs. He speculated that at some point down the road there will probably be a douple-dip release of those shorts in a collector's DVD version with the video in full-frame format. However, the Foghorn Leghorn DVD includes both the widescreen and the Academy Ratio of the cartoons on the same disc and further releases provide only fullscreen viewing.[11]

On the Tweety and Sylvester: Feline Fwenzy and Bugs Bunny: Wascally Wabbit DVDs, all of the cartoons have been released previously on the Golden Collection series.[12]
