So could someone please post screenshots from the Friendly Ghost titles and the A Haunting titles?

Well, at least they attempted to get rid of the UM&M titles. That's a good sign

Hmmm.... the Friendly Ghost opening credits still show a "travel ghost" (streaking below the lettering).

The three PD cartoons don't use the versions with the added sound effects, do they?

Thanks. At least they tried but, now for sure that I'm NOT going to buy this set.

I've been enjoying this set. True, it isn't perfect, but for something as often overlooked and forgotten as Casper, this is a good deal, and likely all we'll get. Maybe some will accuse me of settling for an inferior product, but I'm happy with it.

Mark Arnold wrote:[THE FRIENDLY GHOST, THERE'S GOOD BOOS TONIGHT and A-HAUNTING WE WILL GO] are slightly shaky, but it seems that they got the best prints they could find, barring striking a new print from the original negatives which may actually no longer exist for these three.
Mark, UCLA holds original 35mm nitrate picture negs on all three, plus original audio negs and 35mm safety prints on both THE FRIENDLY GHOST and THERE'S GOOD BOOS TONIGHT. They definitely exist.
Paramount might also hold some elements, but I haven't researched their holdings so can't say one way or the other.
