I believe it was in the early 1950's that MGM began re-issuing a number of their older cartoons with different title cards. Most of the MGM cartoons in existence today are available only as re-issue prints. According to Jerry Beck, all of the original prints and the negatives to the pre-1950 MGM car...

Thanks for posting those, Thornhill. I never saw the laserdisc version, only the VHS and earlier DVD versions. While the colors in the laserdisc version appear brighter, the overall image of Captain Hook seems slightly out-of-focus compared to the frame-grab from the DVD. I'm not certain why that is...

Snow White, Pinocchio, Dumbo, and Peter Pan look horrible in their current issues. Really? I have the Platinum Editions of Snow White (which is currently out-of-print, BTW, and costs an arm-and-a-leg for a new copy on Amazon) and Peter Pan. To me both of these look superior to what was released on ...

I heard the Roadrunner's beep-beeps in the Larriva Eleven were actually just replays of older beep-beeps from the Jones era. According the audio commentary for a Road-Runner cartoon on a previous volume of LTGC, Blanc didn't do the Road-Runner's "beeps" at all; the sound was allegedly provided by b...

If there ever were an actual print of the cartoon which included this ending; I've heard that South or Central America would be the place to look for it, not Europe or the UK. Boy... even that ending would be relatively tame compared to what happens in cartoons nowadays. Look at Family Guy , for exa...

Then again, I wonder if it might have come off that way, had "Duck! Rabbit! Duck!" not come along to make it a cohesive trilogy... As I understand it, referring to the three cartoons as a "trilogy" is a misconception; the Jones Unit apparently never intended them as such but rathert just decided to...

Which would explain the lethargic quality of the voice-acting; Blanc was probably doped to the gills with pain-killers.

Interesting question. As I recall, The Man Called Flintstone was released through Hanna-Barbera Home Video on VHS in the late 1980s. The original opening studio logo (I'm told, I've never seen it) had Wilma as the Columbia torch lady...I wouldn't expect that to make the cut for the DVD. :( If it's ...
