Payment sent. Can't wait to check this out.

Out of curiosity, were you able to locate the unreleased "Secrets of the Caribbean" short?

Ted- the high def quicktimes were a great idea.... Secrets remains missing, but not for lack of trying. I did find out where the material went (the final neg was delivered to the Military) but it's unclear where it is now- very likely destroyed or abandoned. Wish I had better news about that!

No one's happier than me that you liked the idea; well, maybe someone with a HUGE tv...

Pardon my curiosity, but why are those last two "A Few Quick Facts" shorts not going to be on the final set?

"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)
