I have been busy compiling the following list for historical purposes.
However, I am missing information particular to the "Looney Tunes 1 Font Pack, which I have preceded with a bullet •. The complete list of fonts in that pack, and, if you have the original box, a scan of the front and back would be extremely helpful. Thanks!!

WOBURN, Mass., Nov. 10, 2011 – Monotype Imaging Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: TYPE) and Bitstream Inc. (Nasdaq: BITS) today announced they have entered into a definitive agreement for Monotype Imaging to acquire Bitstream’s font business in an all cash merger valued at $50 million, subject to adjustments based on the closing net asset value of Bitstream. The transaction has been approved by the boards of directors for both companies.
I've been wondering about the following. I always like it when the typefaces used in a book are mentioned in the credits. It gives credit to the design and the designer and saves me a lot of Whatthefont sessions ;-) But what if one were to use a typeface that has a different name than the original (I'm thinking for instance about several Bitstream and URW typefaces that had to change the name for copyright purposes). Would you credit it Optus or Optima, Gill Sans or Humanist 521?
