Actually, the LT DVDs *do* say they are uncut & uncensored on the back covers. To be fair, we haven't seen Droopy's back cover yet.

Oh, I saw the word "background" and misread it to mean the back of the cover.

I couldn't even see those pictures in the background until I squinted, looking on this old monitor of mine....

Thanks,

Josh

I hope WHV released Droopy's Good Deed is uncut, If they do, this Droopy set is really almost perfect collection to me. You have all Avery Droopys, all Lah Droopys, Lundy's Caballero Droopy, it's almost perfect collection to be sure.

I think future Avery set may not include Droopy shorts. Personally, that's not a big problem to me. If we had perfect Droopy collection, then why we need same shorts for Avery collection? This Droopy set has its must-own value.

Actually, Michael Lah's Blackboard Jumble is great Droopy short. He used Avery's many innovative gags, but he used some inventive gags all his own. One Droopy Knight is another good one, and it's Oscar-nominated short. (Can you believe it - Avery's Droopy short never nominated Oscar, even Northwest Hounded Police) Dick Lundy's Caballero Droopy is also first-rate short with an hiysterically funny train crashed finale. You can get all these cartoons.

If WHV released Droopy set is uncut, I think they will be releasing Avery set with Warner Avery cartoons. (minus Droopy cartoons) If they do, that'll fine to me. Classics like Porky's Preview, Detouring America will be including Avery set instead of already released Droopy shorts, I think that's wise dicision.

I believe Avery's Warner cartoons needs more respect, and possible future Avery set will have Avery Warner disc, that's great pleasure to me.

Well, Jerry Beck said on another forum that a potential Avery set would include a double dip of the Droopy cartoons.

Exactly. That's why I made my previous post.

We're all just speculating that anything else will even be released at all in regards to the MGM stuff, but if it does, I wouldn't be surprised if it were some sort of "Tex Avery All-Star Collection" or something similarly titled and covering all the MGM stuff, leaving these out.

Unless I misunderstood what I read over on Jerry Beck's website, the decision by WHV whether or not to do a "complete Tex Avery" (MGM) set would be based on how well the Droopy set sells; and further, if they do release a "complete Tex Avery" set it WOULD include the Droopy cartoons as well.

If the shorts:
1. have been digitally restored (or sourced from the best possible elements a la the first few shorts on the Tom & Jerry Spotlight collection 2)
2. are all uncut
3. are accompanied by some nice extras

... I might consider getting it. If they are cut and restored I don't see a reason to replace my French set. (which I'm still quite happy with)

This will probably be the very last new animated DVD I buy.

I hate the pandering to the soccer-mom audience that's been going on.

The Digital Bits has a little more info on the Droopy set here (3/14/07 post). According to that site, it's going to be unedited (but we know from experience that doesn't really mean anything until we see for ourselves). Still, I guess it's a slightly hopeful sign.
