The Deitch stuff is probably bootleg, since there has not yet been (to the best of my knowledge) an official release of those shorts.

Besides, I believe we're talking about the MGM shorts available on DVD in the US. But as I said The Tom and Jerry Cartoon Kit is (to this day) the only Gene Deitch short available on DVD via Tom and Jerry: Paws For The Holidays.

I don't know how up-to-date the list is, but last I knew it did not reflect that "Who Killed Who?" is avaiable on the DVD release of "Presenting Lily Mars"


Why don't we make that sticky similar to Looney Tunes DVD/blu-ray thread. Maintain it in similar manner if Jon hasn't time maybe some one else can volunter to work on update that list. While we are at it why don't we do that also to other studios.

The fact that these shorts are not on American DVD doesn't mean that they are not on DVD at all.
these shorts are on the UK Tom And Jerry DVD, not restored, however...

I stand corrected; I was unaware of the UK releases...

I agree that we should just sticky the original thread by Thebiach.

I have been advocating that position for some time now.

On that note: there seems to be a lot of redundancy with regard to new threads here in the forums. Newbies: if you want to start new discussion threads, fine; that's what these forums are here for... but please check first to see if one already exists for your particular topic. If you're not sure how to search for your topic, send a message to one of the admins or older members and ask.

If it's an old thread (more than a year-old), don't post to it unless you actually have something to add which will be of interest to all concerned; or something to add that reveals information not previously known or discussed.
