Looney Tunes Golden Collection: Volume 4

Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 4 is a Looney Tunes collection on DVD. Following the pattern of one release each year of the previous volumes, it was released on November 14, 2006. It is the first Looney Tunes DVD set to feature some cartoons using the modern mid-1960s Looney Tunes opening and closing sequences.

Like Volume 3, this set also contains a warning about the politically incorrect humor and racial stereotypes in some of the cartoons, but instead of a speech by a person, it was a simple title card that summarized that the cartoons depicted ethnic and racist stereotypes that can be offensive to modern audiences.
