Minor LT&MM Website Update (07/10/10)

Postby Pietro » Sat Jul 10, 2010 4:18 pm

Just a quick note on the LT&MM site: the listing of Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies in the public domain has been updated!

Recent research brought to light some mistakes that have now been corrected. For instance, From Hand to Mouse, Miss Glory (listed under Page Miss Glory in the Film Superlist), and Porky's Hired Hand were previously listed by the LT&MM site as public domain shorts. However, they are in fact still under copyright. Meanwhile, titles thought to be copyrighted like Nutty News or the 1936 Porky and Beans short Westward Whoa are actually in the public domain.

Hope everyone finds this helpful!

Cheers,
Pietro:cool:

Can anyone confirm whether "An Itch in Time" is public domain? It isn't on the list of public domain shorts, but it isn't on the list of shorts that are under copyright (but commonly found on public domain collections) either.

According to Hurst's "Film Superlist: Motion Pictures in the U.S. Public Domain, 1940-1949", the copyright on "An Itch in Time" was indeed renewed.

So, no, the short is not in the public domain and it still remains under copyright despite appearing on public domain compilations.

Hope this helps!

I also did a quick, minor update to the WB Cartoon Checklist. I added the three Road Runner/Coyote 3D cartoons that are due for theatrical release this year ("Coyote Falls", "Fur of Falling" and "Rabid Rider"). Also, under "Misc. Shorts" I added 1996's "Marvin the Martian in the Third Dimension".

You're right! I just added it under the MISC. SHORTS section. Thanks letting me know!

Is there any "official" word on what that cartoon's actual title is? I have often seen it listed as "Bugs Bunny Bond Rally," but IIRC there isn't an actual on-screen title -- it just says "Leon Schlesinger Presents Bugs Bunny." I saw a listing for one of the forthcoming DVDs that listed it as "Any Bonds Today"

I wish I could find the lobby card to this short, because I swear it was identified as "Any Bonds Today?"
