As if Herman and Katnip wasn't enough! :D :

http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/news/New-Casper-Cartoon-Casper-Collectors-Edition/15646

"Our retail contacts have told us that they've been informed of a fabulous new 3-DVD set coming out on October 11th, just in time for Halloween. It's Casper the Friendly Ghost: Collector's Edition, with 55 original theatrical cartoons and 26 episodes made specifically for 1963's "The New Casper Cartoon Show". They tell us that this even includes a rare episode which has never been released to home video, in any format. Plus there are new Bonus Features in the form of Commentaries with Casper expert Mark Arnold (writer of the book The Harveyville Fun Times), an Interview with voice actor Bradley Bolke, a Gallery of Comic Book Covers, and more! Collectors will love that this all comes in stylish matte finish/spot gloss packaging, all for just $29.93 SRP."


What say you fans?

Great news if it happens ... after Herman & Katnip, now this - I hope there is more good Harvey news to come.

Come on, Complete Little Audrey DVD set.

But I digress.. the range of dates suggests that they're going to include the pre-Harvey trilogy. Hopefully they find some good prints for those.

Collector's edition means what? Restored original Famous shorts with original titles, soundtrack, music and everything? I sure hope so.

But I don't think that will happen...

If this has restored prints of the original three Casper cartoons, i am so buying this set. I'm tired of seeing those grainy, beat up public domain prints of the original three shorts.

Uh-oh, who's releaseing it? The first three are owned by Paramount.

OK. I've done the math. Now I remember that the first four volumes/discs of the Pink Panther Cartoon Collection featured 27 shorts per disc. And if I'm correct, the 3 discs will hold 27 cartoons each with hopefully enough room for the extras.

On Facebook, Mark Arnold says this is a Shout Factory release which explains why it looks like a step-up from the typical Classic Media releases.
