I have this set along with numerous other thunderbean releases. I do not request that steve fixes the sound issue and send out replacement disks to everyone. that seems like it would cost him a lot of money and be a hassle to him with all the other projects he is trying to push forward.

However my suggestion would be to include a corrected "the quail hunt" on a future thunderbean release, like a lantz vol. 2, 30's cartoon compilation, or any other compilation that it may fit into. A vast majority or maybe even everyone who bought the Oswald dvd from thunderbean will buy the next release anyway. this way steve can move forward with his projects and everyone else will eventually get a good copy of "the quail hunt."

A very realistic set that i think could sell very well would be the following:

Roadrunner and coyote - the remaining cartoons
coyote and bugs bunny - 4 cartoons i think
ralph and sam - 6 cartoons i think

This would likely be a 2 disc set and would sell triple the amount of the mouse chronicles

I am looking forward to this set, although I wish they could find a way to squeeze in the 2 sylvester cartoons done with Spike and Chester. Those are 2 of my favorites and have never been on any dvd release.

TTTP In Exile / Questions about the Hayes Code
« on: September 15, 2012, 10:33:32 am »
Betty Boop and Bimbo were seriously affected by the code. Bimbo disappeared afterwards, because he was considered Betty Boops boyfriend, and the code said no, because it would imply bestiality.

Now I was watching some Droopy cartoons which were made only 10 years later, and it hit me, Droopy and the wolf are chasing after the Red head girl in a sexual way. Why is Betty Boops relationship with Bimbo altered, But Droopy and the Red head girl able to exist like they did?

As far as movies went, the code was still in full effect until the mid 1950's, when Otto Preminger began making some of his best movies.

So did the censorship not monitor cartoons as closely as full length movies? Did Tex Avery receive numerous requests to alter the characters or stories relating to Droopy? If he did, did he outright ignore them or did he actually alter the cartoon in some places for the censors?

Why in the hell does every animated movie require a song and dance number from the characters at the end of movie or during the credits.

A lot of times animated movies end on touching and emotional note. Then the song and dance number comes and undermines that for me.

Was Shrek the movie that all the other studies copied with this rule?

Is Curtain Razor, the one where Porky is a talent scout and sees a bunch of random characters, including some singing birds? I loved that one so much and look forward to seeing it on DVD

What are the odds of some other  Hans Fischerkoesen cartoons included. Der Schneemann is one of my all time favorites.

These would make wonderful additions to another cartoons for victory set:

Die Verwitterte Melodie (Weather-beaten Melody), 1943
Das Dumme Gänslein (The Silly Goose), 1944

I am friends with a band called Squad Five-O. In 2000 they released an album called Bombs Over Broadway, and the album cover had some planes crashing into buildings in NYC, the twin towers were visible.

According to jerry beck on his last stu show, shout factory noticed how well the jolly frollics set did for tcm and how amazing the prints looked. so they decided to use nicer prints and restore them. so the release date is expected to come this fall. it should probably be worth the wait.

I do agree with a lot of the points made on John K's blog about the subject, however he comes across as they didn't make the cartoons to look like my personal preference, so there is something wrong with those cartoons.

everyone has different opinions on what looks good, John K's opinions are just more direct, not beat around the bush type, in your face than what most people are used to.

I ordered from movies unlimited, and for the first time I opted to pay for extra for expedited shipping. The next day I got an email saying it was on back order. That's probably the last time I buy from them, I will stick to amazon

On an unrelated note, does anyone have any info on what John K. thinks of UPA cartoons. He obviously can't stand WB cartoons of the 50's and 60's due to the more angular designs, and other more limited techniques used to cut costs. UPA had a big influence on those WB cartoons, so I am just curious if he openly bashes the studio that influenced the look that he so hates.

I didn't get to listen to the show, but can someone give more details on the tom and jerry sets, like if there is an estimated release date.

"Fundamental Friendability"

Now that is a chorus of a song that can get stuck in your head for days at a time whether you want it to or not.

He will be missed. Everyone should take the time to watch the Sherman Bros documentary from a couple of years ago if they haven't already.
