Steve:

I couldn't believe it, but there's one disc I don't have in my collection. I'd like to order it.

You mention combined shipping in your first post on the thread. How close are you to shipping either the Lantz collection or the "Lost Farmer" disc? I've pre-ordered both of those and was wondering if I could save a couple of bucks and have you ship my "Fundraiser" disc with either of those.

I can put it with them if you'd like... Lantz should be back at some point this week from replication- the check disc should be here Monday.. so soon!

It would be nice if Warners did use the titles and end titles from this print....

Yeah, I know.

Like I said earlier, would it be possible for you to upload a screenshot of the original title card for Texas Tom?

Think of the cartoons, not the titles.

Well, I'd still like to see what the original opening title card for Texas Tom looks like, as I've only seen the reissue title card.

So how about it, Steve?  :)

Hey Gabriel:

Why not just order Steve's disc that has Texas Tom on it and see the original titles for yourself when the disc arrives? Considering that the value of the print itself is likely up in the triple digits, not to mention the value of the prints of all the other cartoons on the disc (some of those prints may even be one of, if not the only known-to-exist print of a cartoon!), and that Steve has shelled out good money to transfer this stuff to share with us enthusiasts as pretty much a labor of love (he did say in the opening post that these special/"fundraiser" discs often don't make enough money to cover the transfer costs), that $12 + $3 shipping that it would cost to get the disc is a great deal in my opinion, even if the disc only contained Texas Tom. And if WB has decided not to use Steve's print to restore the original titles for the second Tom and Jerry Golden Collection, then getting Steve's disc would mean that you'd still be able to see the original titles.

Edited to add: If Steve's okay with it, then maybe screenshots of the original titles could be sent to Eutychus at some point for display on the Internet Animation Database website.

@looneytooney:

Sure, the body of a film, not the titles, is the main and most important part of the film. But the titles are still part of the film, and worth appreciating and even discussing at times, especially in cases like this where we're talking about original titles that were replaced for reissue and have since become very rare.

Just my thoughts,

Zachary.

 :mighty: Almost all of these title are not known to me.  Where can I go to research these titles to determine what discs I'd want?
I have already purchased discs 1 4 6 8 and 10; but, I'm concerned I'm missing good stuff on the others (no doubt).
I'm very excited about my purchase and I don't want to have buyers remorse, in reverse.  If you know what I mean. :marvin2:
Wow! Too bad I don't have enough money, or I'd consider getting them all.  :yosemite:

Does the print of Texas Tom on "The Telecine has Landed" have its original titles?

Hey Steve, I would love to get discs 8 and 9, but since I lost my credit card last week and won't get another one until next week, I can't send money via Paypal right now. Will you still offer the discs next week?
I wish I had a magnifying glass,

So sorry to hear! I will try to make them available until then!  I try to put all these things together so I can print out addresses and send together- that way I don't mess up anyone'e order (as some of you know!)

I am trying to get discs 6, 7, and 9 (I'm intrigued by the rare Terry and Fleischer stuff) but am just in need of clarification - are these still being sold until Friday? Sorry if this seems like an annoyance because I'm sure people have already asked you.

Is this still available?  For some reason I thought the original post was made on a Sunday, so I thought I'd be able to research this and order tonight...
