TTTP In Exile / Dumbo: live action version?
« on: July 09, 2014, 07:31:59 pm »
I just saw a news blurb stating that Disney is developing a live action version of "Dumbo".  Is this really happening?  Is there any way that this could work?


TTTP In Exile / Puppetoon Blu-Ray set
« on: March 14, 2014, 04:09:22 pm »
I thought that the new Puppetoon Blu-Ray set was great.  How well did this set sell?  Did it sell enough copies to warrant B2MP (or someone else) to do future limited edition projects of this nature?


TTTP In Exile / Google Doodle: Saul Bass

Have you checked out today's Google Doodle (5/8).  It's an animated homage to Saul Bass referencing many of the movie title sequences that he created.  It's one of the better doodles that I've seen on the site.

Is the 2004 Disney short "LORENZO" available on DVD or BD?

TTTP In Exile / Topical references in classic cartoon gags
« on: February 28, 2013, 03:02:29 pm »
As I am showing classic cartoons from my collection to others I find that I have to constantly explain many of the cartoon gags that have topical references.  Items such as rationing cards, celebrity caricatures (particularly radio personalities), advertising slogans and tag lines.  I get that younger individuals will not pick up on references to the 30's and 40's but now I find that I have to explain things like sprocket holes and a hair appearing in the film gate.  Are we that far away from film projection  that younger people no longer know what a sprocket hole is?

I am old enough to have seen many of the cartoons when originally released – starting in the late 1940's but sometimes I miss the reference in some of the gags.  E.O Costello's "Warner Brothers' Cartoon Companion" was a great resource for many of the references in the cartoons, but I can no longer find a link to it on the internet.  Is WBCC still posted?  If so, where?


TTTP In Exile / Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer - Jam Handy Cartoon
« on: December 22, 2012, 12:57:37 pm »
I have a few questions about the Jam Handy production of  "Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer"  I know that the orignal story was written by Robert Mays in 1939 for the retailer Montgomery Ward.  A cartoon of this story was prodiced by Dave Fleischer for Jam Handy in 1944.  This cartoon was then re-released in 1948 with the song added to the cartoon.  Is the date of the re-release correct?  I know that that Johnny Marks (Robet May's brother-in-law) wrote the song based on the story in 1947.  Gene Autry didn't have the hit recording until the Christmas season.  Where there recordings of Rudolph prior to the Autry recording or was the song on the re-released cartoon the first recording?  Or is the 1948 re-release date incorrect?  Dose anyone have detailed information on this Jam Handy production and its re-release and updating?

Merry Christmas Everyone,

TTTP In Exile / Cartoons on Laser Disc but not on DVD
« on: November 14, 2012, 12:01:27 pm »
I was recently looking at the filmographies posted here on these IAD Forums and knew that I had a few of the titles that were not on DVD in my collection of Laser Discs, but I was amazed at how many I actually had on the LD's that have not been released on DVD.  In my collection I see 130 Warner titles and 32 MGM titles along with a large number of Fleischer releases plus many independently produced cartoons.  Interesting laser collections included: "The Compleate Tex Avery", "MGM Cartoon Classics Vol. 1: Happy Harmonies", Betty Boop, The Definative Collection Vol. 1 & Vol.2" and "The Golden Age of Looney Tunes Vols. 1 thru 5"

I know that the Betty Boop's should be taken care of when Olive Films releases their set of discs but I was amazed at how many cartoons that are on LD still have not been released on DVD or Blue Ray.  I have two LD's produced by Rocketship International - Has "Bambi Meets Godzilla" ever been put out on a DVD? 

Is there a complete list of all cartoon collections that were put out on Laser Disc because I'm sure I don't have all the LD's that have been produced?
