So, that show actually wasn't bad at all.......I didn't like waiting for what I would find more interesting, but the bulk of the information handed out to us were great.

I am definitely going to have a lot of new home media releases to buy next year, that's for sure!

They're about to turn a figure if it was my understanding.

They also stated that if you want this to continue to sell, give the set to someone you love this holiday. ;)

On the bright side, it might also mean streaming sites like Netflix can look further into releasing their content on DVD/Blu-ray.


I'm disagree, since I'm so much into the internet. But I hope we win the battle since the internet belongs to us and not the business companies.

For those that weren't playing at home, the following cartoons that Jerry played were:

"Santa's Surprise" (Famous, 1947) as seen on the New Years show.

"Magic Mummy" (Van Buran, 1933)

"Merry Mannequins" (Columbia, 1937)

Is that all that was said, or did they also discuss the various reactions to – and problems with – the set? Did Jerry address the audio errors at all?

The text promised "a special look at how the WB Archives Porky Pig 101 set is doing"... so I was expecting the set to be a main subject.

Short answer: Yes

Didn't take down comprehensive notes but the gist was Jerry did blame himself for talking George Feltenstein into lowering his standards of perfection just to get the set out from the material that could be made available to them on a limited budget. He still reaffirms he is proud of the set regardless of its legitimate issues. He really wants to see his "experiment" sell well just to convince the higher-ups a market does exist which would ideally "loosen the funds" for more properly restored Warner Archive classic cartoon sets.

Stu mainly lambasted the petty infighting with fans online and encouraged listeners to buy it out of appreciation to the hard work of Jerry and George. A letter he read out succinctly addressed the positive aspects of the set in allowing the viewer to trace chronologically the evolution of the studio, the startling backlash against a certain animation historian pointing out legitimate mistakes and the paradox/dilemma of supporting a flawed set just in hope it could lead to more (and potentially better) sets (as Michael Barrier discussed in his review).

Thanks for the details. :) To be honest, it's been a couple of years since I actually listened to one of Stu's Shows featuring Jerry in full. They used to get me excited for upcoming releases, but these days (maybe especially considering all the disappointments regarding Warner Bros. ever since Tom and Jerry Golden Collection Volume 2), it's hard to drum up that same kind of enthusiasm for taking an hour and a half listening to these. And Thundebean projects I tend to hear about through "Thunderbean Thursday".

When you say Stu "lambasted" fans' infighting, did that lambasting include all the hostility against Thad after he pointed out the errors? I'm glad he at least presented the matter from more than one perspective through that letter... though his "just buy it" recommendation sounds pretty one-sided.

I was a little concerned that the message from Steve Stanchfield read by Jerry did not mention "Mr. Bug Goes to Town" as a Thunderbean Blu-ray project for 2018. I hope this was an oversight and not due to another lengthy delay, or God forbid, a cancellation. Any forum members have insights about this?

In wake of Stu's comments he's correct regarding armchair QB is not doing anyone favor not those who write it, those who its directed at and then everyone inbetween.. I have expressed my views regarding that particular blog post, but sometimes it s better to express concerns in private specially if that particular author could have gotten himself involved in the set before it came out.

Whatever happened to being optimistic? Wait, don't answer that. I don't want this thread to steer way off-topic.

I'm concerned too... it's on hold. Business office stuff not in my hands and not at Thunderbean. All I can say.
