The upside to all of this is that John K. and his giggling entourage were completely left out of Popeye the Sailor, Vol. 2 . I don't think a list of extras is out yet for Volume 3, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Mr. K and Company will be left out of that DVD set, as well! Ditto that for LTG...

BTW, I forgot to mention that there's a version of Sleepy-Time Tom floating out there which has the original footage of Mammy matched with the Irish maid's voice... so I guess Mammy was actually "Black-Irish"! :D I believe that there is also a re-animated version of Mouse Cleaning that features a wh...

OK, I just watched the clip compilation for The Lonesome Mouse , Polka-Dot Puss and Nit-Witty Kitty ... and I will concede that in the first and third titles the re-dubbed versions sound like they were done later than the second (and also later than Saturday Evening Puss ). The voice actress in the ...

Ummm...that's not June Foray in those re-dubbed Mammy cartoons, at least not the most recent ones. That's a different actress entirely. Well, I was specifically referring to the cartoons that were re-dubbed in the 1960's. I'm not aware of any Tom and Jerry cartoons that were done later than that. O...

I still wonder who voiced Mammy in the dubbed tracks. I read somewhere it was Julie "Marge Simpson" Kavner. That can't be her. It actually sounds like Debra Wilson.... almost. To the best of my knowledge, all of the re-dubs in these cartoons were recorded by voice-actress June Foray (better known a...

Getting back to the topic of sound, I was googling around on the web just now when I came across this webpage which is part of the American Widescreen Museum website. I remember now that I had visited this website about 4 years ago, but had only looked at the materials dealing with various widescree...

The major problem with all the 16mm TV prints is that they had already shown evidence of Technicolor matice shrinkage as far back as the mid 1960s when I first saw it on television. You will notice that there are places where the picture appears to go slightly out of focus, and certain colors such ...

I was initially told by one of WHV's customer service representatives that the discs were not yet in stock and that they would not be in stock until around the 3rd week of August. Then it would probably take another week or two to process and ship out all of the requested replacement discs, so most ...
