As I have told Mac and Looney Tunes Fan, the guy who's been posting all these Oswald threads is a shameless cyber-prankster. If you read those threads, his posts alone have a suspicious air, and earlier today he tried putting up a fake title card. Elsewhere, he already put up fake videos of recently-discovered Oswalds:

What's more, the user in question may have edited Wikipedia's Oswald filmography. Looking at the edit history of that falsified Wikipedia Oswald filmography, it turns out that a whole slew of false edits had been made the day of that original posting by one user...two of those edits had added the bushwa about the "Italian bootleg" to begin with, and two of the following edits were edits to make the false info more polished-looking, so to speak. I don't think it'd be unreasonable to conclude that "sasquacth" is the guy behind those ugly edits, and that he made these as a way of giving "credence" to his misinformation. The fact that he chose Wikipedia to do so was in itself a giveaway.

Wow, I actually saw both of those videos a couple days ago - wish I would have put two and two together.

Not only that, but he posted a rating for "Poor Papa" on this site. I was somewhat suspicious about that rating. Can it be removed?

In the Lantz Filmography thread it was noted that in 2015 Italian prints of "Nutty Notes" and "Bowery Bimbos" were apparently found and sold on eBay from someone in Greece back in 2015. Someone made a youtube video of images supposedly from "Nutty Notes":

Are these images accurate? Furthermore, does anyone know what happened to those auctioned prints? It would be sad for lost films to disappear once again, this time into the vaults of a private collector.
