I totally missed this release from warner Archives
I guess they didn't want to deal with the hassle of hiring whoopie to make a statement again.

Spanky, Alfalfa, Buckwheat, Porky, Darla, Mickey, Waldo and Froggy have long been names to conjure with in the annals of screen comedy.

And with this fabulous 5-Disc Collection of 52 Theatrical Shorts, you’ve struck the mother lode of laughter from Hollywood’s Golden Age.

Most of the later shorts aren't suitable for adults either especially the ones with Mickey (aka Robert Blake). MGM took the comedy away and started making little morality plays with "the gang" either learning or teaching a lesson in safety, patiotism, etc. I just got to be too much to stomach. :(
