This certainly does look like good news, but ... seeing is believing. I still can't help getting the feeling that we're going to experience some kind of "double dip" diss.

If they are going to do this cronologicly then it is pretty hard to do a year without re-releasing a short as LTGC was why to randomly sellected, for my liking although I loved every single short we got there. thats probably the only way I would probably"double-dip" other wise I perfer that they would stick to none released shorts on LTGC.

Actually, this short is also a bonus from LTGC volume three, disc 2.

And this is actually a Bosko cartoon. (As of the time I'm writing this, you have it classed as a non-Bosko.)

No "also" about it; it's only a bonus on LTGC V3. The earlier LTGC V2 listed SINKIN' incorrectly—it's mentioned on the packaging, but isn't actually included on the set.

And being a bonus, it wasn't remastered for its inclusion on Golden Collection #3. That's one case where a double dip would be justified if it meant an improved presentation.

...and that's not including the two volumes of Uncensored Bosko, released by Bosko Video (distributed by Image Entertainment):

Vol. 1
Bosko The Talk-Ink Kid
Congo Jazz
Big Man From The North
Ups 'N Downs
Yodeling Yokels
The Tree's Knees
Bosko The Doughboy
Bosko's Fox Hunt
Battling Bosko
Sinkin' In The Bathtub
Hold Anything
Box Car Blues
Ain't Nature Grand
Dumb Patrol

Vol. 2
Bosko's Holiday
Bosko Shipwrecked!
Bosko's Soda Fountain
Bosko At The Zoo
The Booze Hangs High
Big-Hearted Bosko
Bosko And Bruno
Bosko's Party
Bosko's Dog Race
Bosko At The Beach
Bosko's Store
Bosko The Lumberjack
Bosko And Honey

There are also several Bosko cartoons on the "dollar DVD" type releases, but (without checking) off the top of my head, I think they're all titles included on these two volumes. (Though not necessarily from the same sources.) (If I'm wrong, feel free to correct me on that.)

If you figure in these two DVDs, then at least everything from the beginning up through "Ride Him, Bosko" is covered on one release or other, and scattershot titles after that.
