I don't think we have any way of knowing this. At some point, digital distribution is more cost efficient, but as we know current collectors still like physical media.  What is true, in the general, is that DVD sales continue to fall, down almost 10% again last year.  Fewer and fewer portable devices have a disc drive.  It seems that eventually the DVD will become a format that sees less titles being offered.  The reality is, many of the titles on MOD would never have been offered for wide release.  On the other hand, on-line retailers don't have shelf display issues like stores do, so as long as Amazon and other want to keep offering discs, they will.   It's a complicated topic.   If it were not for the age of the animation collector, and their stubbornness to adopt downloads, we likely would have seen a different service than MOD already.  Personally, i'm surprised it's made it this far.

The reason I asked the question is because the post to which I responded sounded as if there had been some recent news of losses at WA ("what I fear most").  If his point is only hypothetical, then I am not worried at all about it.

For the select few of you here who are fans of The Super Globetrotters, anyone who wants to know when a DVD release will occur, don't expect it right away: as of July 21, the boys at Warner Archive told me they were still "working on it" so they do not yet have a release timetable. They still want to gather all the best film elements as possible before they can decide on it. Try to leave them alone until any new information about its release or postponement is disclosed.

 

In an effort to clear things up, if you all want to know where I originally found mention of this, it was in this link:

Of course it was hypothetical.

I am watching Wait Till Your Father Gets Home S1 on dvd. I hope that S2 and S3 of Waill Till Your Gets Home is released to dvd. The show was funny, especially Tom Bosley as Harry Boyle.

 

I also like Ralph the neighbor as he was funny, especially Sargeant Whitaker!!

Great to know.  Sorry if I am a bit slow on the uptake.  I'll be happy to buy Superglobetrotters, but I wish something could be done with Paramount about the prior series.

It's remarkable how the things that delight you as a child stick with you your entire life.  The Batman tv show really benefits from that.  BTW: my 4 and 7 year old were watching season 6 of the Flintstones last night and loved it.  Yes-Yes-Yes, No-No-No.

So, is there any sort of basis in reality for these supposed "financial losses" and staff cuts? Or is it just baseless speculation?

Past two nights I have watched Sealab 2020 as tribute to a very good show. I really like the plots along with characterization. The show reminded me of City beneath city meets Jacques Cousteau. The show view of the species that live in ocean and how they survive was a great characterization of the show!!

 

Next week I plan to watched another show from my collection, like Speed Buggy!!

 

Nothing beats classic HB cartoons!!

Could someone please point me to the quote or forum post "even copy post" that indicates WA cutbacks or financial issues.  The only cutbacks I can find coming from Warner are those from Turner Television division which includes TCM TNT and Cartoon Network.  The cutbacks dont cover home video at Warner Archive.

Then why are you people talking about it like it was a sure thing? Take your rumors and hearsay elsewhere.

I decided to watch Space Ghost and Dino Boy this week. I was a huge Space Ghost fan growing up as such it is always a treat to watch the show again on dvd.

Speaking of that, we do need to get back to the topic at hand. . .

Boomerang in the UK has been airing the  New Scooby Doo Movies so I've transferred 3 of them to dvd which are not part of the 15 episode dvd collection . 

Clearance issues I think was the problem.

 

The 3 featured Sonny & Cher , Sandy Duncan and Phyllis Diller.

Who did the voices because Cher really sounds like Cher.

 

I started recording them a bit late so I may have missed some of the others but its on series link now so when they air it again I'll record them as it does not look like Warner are able to give us the rest.

With the exception of the Three Stooges, I think all the celebrities did their own voices.
