Wasn't there a plan a long time ago to do a character page for Buzz Buzzard? I find it odd that Wally has a page, but not Buzz.

Ironic you should mention that, because we're actually working on such a profile.

BTW, the Frequently Asked Questions page has also now been updated.

The merchandise question has been revised to include mentions of the Electric Tiki maquettes and the new Disney-produced Oswald merchandise. The line about Applause has also been removed as that company no longer has a Lantz/Chilly Willy license.

The Andy Panda question has likewise been removed as that character has since emerged from his "retirement."

In addition, now accompanying the Oswald rights question is an image of the rabbit on the cover of the Feb. 3, 1934 edition of the 'Universal Weekly" (courtesy of Del Walker).

Request. The FAQ section regarding the actors who voiced Woody Woodpecker should be updated to include Danny Webb, who voiced him in Pantry Panic, and Kent Rogers who voiced him in The Dizzy Acrobat.

Their creativity predicted the microwave oven, slide walks, smart phones and robot teachers. All these inventions are now routine realities of the 21st century." - Janet Waldo (LA Times, 2011)

Fixed! Thanks for spotting that!:D

Also, another important update -- I double-checked Hearst's "Film Superlist" and discovered that "Reddy Made Magic" is actually still under copyright! [Thanks to Lantz-O-Pedia reader Steve Stanchfield for encouraging me to run a double-check on this title!]

I can only prise Pietro for those updates but it is shame that Universal home video is not following with Woody vol 3. Keep in mind every thing could be out in 8 volumes (75 cartoons per set we have 150 already as 75*8=600 ) as Lantz made only 588 shorts if my calculation are correct (not including the coca-cola spots, and other commercial titles, those 22 empty spots on the last set could be filled with those shorts)) but there might be problem with the Oswald shorts as trademark right might hold surviving shorts up if the some of the later possible sets would be centered around Oswald. Im not sure but I have heard that some of the Oswald shorts and maybe Pooch the Pup cartoons too are lost but im not rely sure. I wonder if image like this is means that following cartoon is lost but im not realy sure Image

All the Pooch the Pup cartoons exist (see the 1932-33 pages on the Lantz site for images from these shorts).

However, there are eight Oswald cartoons that (as of this writing) have yet to turn up. They are "Cold Turkey", "Pussy Willie", "Nutty Notes", and "Ozzie of the Circus" from 1929 and "Kisses and Kurses", "Broadway Folly", "Bowery Bimbos", and "Cold Feet" from 1930. Note that though they have yet to turn up, this does not mean that they are lost. A 1937 Oswald "The Playful Pup" has also eluded collectors for some time, but I'm 100% certain Universal owns a print of that. It's less certain with these 1929-30 entries.

In addition to these, the soundtracks of "Kounty Fair", "Hot for Hollywood", and "Country School" have yet to surface. UCLA owns a sound print of "Amature Nite" and supposedly a sound print of "Mexico" was recently found, but I have yet to see it.

On top of this, prints of the following shorts with their original theatrical titles have yet to be found: "The Fowl Ball", "The Fisherman", "The Butcher Boy", "Nature's Workshop", "William Tell", "Jolly Little Elves", "Toyland Premiere", "Candyland", "Three Lazy Mice", "Doctor Oswald", "Football Fever", "Feed the Kitty", "Sailor Mouse", and "Arabs with Dirty Fezzes".

Also, as you probably have read on our Miscellaneous section, prints of "The Amazing Recovery of Inbad the Ailer", "Gremlin Mr. N'Tane", "Blood is Needed", 10 of the 12 1948-49 Dick Lundy Coca-Cola ads, Fred Brunish's 1943-44 stop-motion instructional films for the US Navy, and Lantz's promotional film for the 1947 Universal feature "The Egg and I" also have yet to turn up, but I'm sure they're out there somewhere.

Hope this helps!

Awesome updates Pietro!
Not to get off topic, but "Ready Made Magic" is a Lantz Cartoon? According to a Box Office Magazine which was available on issuu.com and also Business Screen Magazine there was a Ted Eshbaugh cartoon under this title from 1945 or 1946. There aren't by chance two films under this name? Very mysterious... :confused:

It looks as though, yes, there are indeed two films by this name, made during, ironically, the same period.

The description of the Eshbaugh film in the Business Screen Magazine is completely different from the Reddy Kilowatt film, which was definitely produced by the Lantz studio.
