Really? Every time I saw it on CN, it was always edited like that.

I remember the first time I saw that years ago, possibly late-90s, I thought maybe the channel glitched up or something.

They also at one point had the shot of the hallway play in reverse, and in slow-mo.

Also, I believe this is the last time Chuck Jones ever used Henry Hawk.

"I must defend the remarkable prescience of the Hanna-Barbera writers. In the early 1960s, they dreamed up a futuristic world that seemed impossibly beyond our reach. 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)

Trivia: The "music only" audio track for "The Scarlet Pumpernickel" on the first Golden Collection actually isn't from this cartoon, but assembled from various other cartoons, including "People Are Bunny", "Wideo Wabbit", "Guided Muscle", "Gee Whiz-z-z", and "Dog Tales".

The screen shots show the original titles with Daffy's head. Where did you get that; the Golden Collection had the blue ribbon titles on it

Those are high quality screenshots from Larry T's print.

The music-only track from "Scarlet Pumpernickel" was certainly from some audio foreign versions who used to be air on TV. The french version have different musics cues to that track, mostly due for Daffy Duck's Thanks-for-Giving Special aired in french version here who use the same isolated music open of that short in this version but from a different dubbing team. (I like better the old dub team, absent from that collection which is shameful)

Bea Benaderet uncredited for the voice of Melissa Duck.

Didn't Phil Monroe animate the opening scene?

The alternate soundtrack makes it a completely different cartoon. For instance, the original "Scarlet Pumpernickel" used "Jolly Robbers Overture" for Daffy's heroic scenes, while the alternate soundtrack used "William Tell Overture". And the scene where Daffy greets Elmer originally used Boccherini's "Minuet", while the "music only" track used "In an 18th Century Drawing Room".

Yes, I mentioned that earlier in this thread.
