Hopefully it's just an Amazon error.


I would belive Classic Media to do anything. But we will have to wait and see.

The pre-order price has dropped to a measly $5.99 on Amazon!

Now I'm even more confused. $5.99? 60 minutes? There's no way this is the "complete" Herman & Katnip, is it? The theatrical run had over 30 shorts in this series, I believe, and with each one being the typical 6-7 minutes in length...

What we need is an official list of its contents.

Then I think there is no need to be positive mood over this release.

I don't understand why one DVD company does a Harveytoon property and a second DVD company does another.

^Classic Media has the DVD rights to the Harveytoons (and Paramount has the theatrical rights). What Shout Factory is doing is sublisencing from one of the two or both. That's what they do. For example, Leave it To Beaver is owned by Universal, and Dennis the Menace is owned by Columbia; both have been released by Shout Factory.

Classic Media does their own releases (distributed currently by Vivendi) but obviously aren't above licensing to others. That's all Shout Factory does pretty much. They license things from third party studios for release. For the record, they also use Vivendi for distribution.
