Now I have a multi region DVD player, and I understand th...

Peter Pan is in perpetual copyright for the benefit of the Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital in London - very apt choice.

I wasn't aware that Gulliver's Travels had been restored - that is good news. I would love to see a restored Hoppity Goes To Town (aka Mr Bug ...).

Warner Archive doesn't count as official release - they don't play on computers or DVD recorders, and are very overpriced for DVD-Rs. As for the release of these - I'd love to see Coal Black, Tin Pan Alley Cats, and Goldilocks in decent prints. But I'll believe it when I see it. After all, if Viv St...

This is available in the UK now. Had a flick through when I spotted it in the Barbican bookshop. Although I would have liked a bigger book with artwork of the minor and early characters, it looks great and I like the way it is presented - not just your traditional hardback. Will be buying a copy of ...

I haven't seen The Rescuers since 1978 (and can't remember it) and have never seen The Rescuers Down Under - is it worth doing so now?
