Just curious why "Ragtime Bear" is the only Magoo on the collection - Maybe because it was the first Magoo cartoon and was part of the "Jolly Frolics" series, and Classic Media does not own any rights to it?


I do think you are in error as fair as I know Classic media don't own any of the theatrical shorts.

I'm not stating a fact; I'm speculating. CM doesn't own any of the theatrical shorts (Sony does), but I believe CM owns the Magoo name.

Then we are on correct ground. :)

Fantastic news! Just hope I will be able to import it... Even if I personally can't, it's a real milestone for cartoon buffs.

Also very excited about 1001 Arabian Nights and the Mr. Magoo set
