Hello there. I am writing to this forum as I am wondering: Does anyone have an idea what the missing footage from 1938's You're an Education(cut from the Blue Ribbon reissue) is. I know about nearly a minute is missing from the Blue Ribbon. I am just wondering what the missing footage (that's if a pre-BR print, most than likely in my opinion). As the cuts in the first half, make the first half nearly unwatchable in my opinion. It's too fast to comprehend. Thank you.

lost sequence?
According to the book Frank Tashlin by Roger Garcia, "several shots (including a caricature of Hugh Herbert) totaling 67 feet (approx. 45 seconds) were removed for this film's 'Blue Ribbon Special' reissue in 1946." The bulk of these cuts appear to take place primarily towards the beginning of the cartoon, specifically during the montage sequence featuring brouchures of various world destinations accompanied by a song germane to that place. Some of the brouchures are bridged with dissolves, others with fade-outs. Some of the fade-outs, however, appear to allude to obvious edits. Later in the cartoon, another apparent edit occurs. This takes place during the "Yuba Plays the Tuba" sequence in which a shot of a Native American fish (representing the "Indian" Ocean) abruptly fades to black and quickly fades into Lawrence Tibbett in Tibet

I also noticed a fade-out at the ending, where it fades to black as the Thief of Baghdad's turban flies through iris-in.
