Just thought of another one for the ocean white labels list - Looney Tunes

I have a suspicion that there may be a taz mania (island chase) rerelease as well but I may be imagining it.

**edit** yup, wasn't imagining it-

Ah, damn, I've actually seen that one before but missed it as I only checked Ocean games. Didn't remember that they also re-released games by other publishers. Thanks :)
