I thought one of GAC member's website had the original titles. I think the titles scrolled down to the Hollywood Bowl as the cartoon stars. I recall Thad had it on his Dailymotion account at one point. It's also interesting to note that some cartoons were reissued twice. I bet that was the case wit...

I remember being very excited at seeing "Thomas and the Magic Railroad," having grown up watching Thomas the Tank Engine on VHS and "Shining Time Station" on PBS. And watching the film with my little sister, we had a fun time. But in the ensuing years, having learned about the movie's drawn-out pre-...

That clinches it, I'm really excited now! But I think I might have missed something. When this news first broke, I thought it was just a handful of pre-1953 shorts that had been found. Am I to take Gabriel's news clip to mean that ALL of the T&J negatives are now in existance? Good grief, I wonder w...

Oh, this is going to be so great! I've never seen these shorts look this good! I'm looking forward to seeing the shorts I've never seen before and rediscovering those I have, particularly the Raggedy Ann shorts. They may not be perfect, but dang if they don't have some wonderful music and eye-poppin...

Having recently acquired the Universal set that has been released in the UK, I'll be interested to find out how this set improves on that one. I recently found out about UCLA's massive project to restore the L&H films. Information about it can be found here: http://www.cinema.ucla.edu/support/laurel...

Honnestly, i really like this Merrie Melodies segment. Lola's expressions and the lyrics are for one time, well workable. Jessica did a very great effort in this one. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J3RsYEKDtwk Well I guess I have to turn in my 'classic cartoon curmudgeon' card, since I was laughing...

"Dripalong Daffy" is faaaaar superior.


I agree that Dripalong Daffy has a better mix of verbal and visual humor, I don't get why almost everyone dislikes "My Little Duckaroo." I always found it funny.

I Don't know if this is a quincadence or not, but in The Old Gray Hare, one of the newspaper headlines says "Smelevision Replaces Television". Apparently, TV didn't exist in American Society when the cartoon was made so how did they know about it? did they know it was going to be invented in the fu...

I vividly remember this from when it would air on TNT with the other DePatie-Freleng shorts. Particularly when Wong is about to do another 'Confusion say' shtick and the other two start pummeling him. And I actually think Larry Storch does well as the Commissioner here, particularly in the opening s...

Could you...could you try to tone it down? You're coming across as a huge jerk . Stop it. No, WB doesn't have to cater to our every whim. All they have to do is give us a quality product. It's not like we're going to buy this blind. There'll be early reviews and opinions on this set and anyone who ...
