Warner Archive via Facebook says that MARINE BOY is in the process of being worked on for a future release, which doesn't mean it's going to be coming out any time soon.

I broke down and purchased Butch Cassady and the sundance kids through amazon.com. I will look at few other shows when my budget dollars open up, but they will be through amazon.com as amazon.ca does not handle WB archives very well.

 

I thought i heard tarzan was schedule to comeout as well. I am also surprised there is not talk about the Lone Ranger Cartoon from 1966-1968. http://en.wikipedia....ated_TV_series)

 

I would also thought Banana Splits would also come out as it has been talked about in the past, but the originals needed lots of work!

Lots of things are "confirmed" to eventually come. As that is WA's model. We get more enthusiastic when they say they actually start work on them. Still though then some older materials take a long time to get done than more recent materials (Hence why we have been waiting a long time for Huckleberry Hound and Captain Caveman and other shows are out within a month or two after being confirmed to have been worked on.)

 

The good news to be opitimistic in general is that the library is selling well. When the lowest HB (or related library) is better than nearly half the other releases on their website, we don't have to worry about them stopping anytime soon. So as long as they keep chugging along eventually we should get to all the stuff that's cleared.

 

However the real interesting news is WA answered a question on Grape Ape. Something we had thought would be locked up by WHV. This raises questions, did WHV release just Grape Ape and probably Mumbly? Or what about the Puppy, Richie Rich and Dynomutt seasons. Or even though less likely could the other properties be closer to crossing over too?

Here's an interesting article on Warner Archive and their attempts at preserving Hanna-Barbera material:

Besides Popeye, they will be coming out with CAPTAIN CAVEMAN AND THE TEEN ANGELS, ROMAN HOLIDAYS, more FLINTSTONES spin-offs and MARINE BOY, all from the article.

Me too. hehe

 

The article has some great news and shows the commitment by Warner for HB future releases.

Fingers crossed for "The Flintstone Kids".  Loved watching that on Saturday mornings as a kid.  Also, count me in for 'Captain Caveman"!

I would also be very happy to hear and update on the New Adventures of Gilligan as well. I have most of the HB series that i wanted with only a few missing. If i could buy the old cereal then i could duplicate my saturday mornings, but Canada does not sell the TRIX, Count Chocula, Boo Berry, Apple Jacks, etc anymore. I can get captain crunch and the fruit loops, but that is about it!

I wish we would hear something about Clue Club.  It won that poll and there has been nothing since.

Let's hope that Marine Boy is the whole series, rather than just more one-off episodes in Saturday Morning collections!

Someone on the Warner Archives Facebook page made a disparaging remark about releasing Marine Boy. I commented on it. This cartoon was one of the best from the greatest era of cartoons- the 1960's. I also hope for a complete series but I have my questions. There are like 77-78 episodes or so. It was a half hour cartoon with commercials. It is hard to imagine they are going to release all those, long episodes  in one set. I see at least 2 releases but hopefully I'm wrong.

I had never heard of MARINE BOY until the SATURDAY MORNING DVD sets came out a few years ago from WHV.  I do not recall it from my childhood nor did I ever see it in syndication.  Did the show air in syndication and no one from the Oregon TV market pick it up?

I'm just happy they're continuing Popeye again but still awaiting Jetsons S3 to come out as well by them to complete that series.

Now, I'm just making sure of everything as this is somewhat confusing based on these two reports

 

 

WHY AREN’T THE CLASSIC COLOR POPEYE CARTOONS RELEASED ON VIDEO?

Good News! Warner Bros. will release these to DVD and Blu-Ray next year. Restoration is taking place now. The first boxed set should be released in July 2014! (From cartoonresearch.com)

VERSUS this article...http://www.homemedia...-cartoons-30099

 

My question is this...so will these will be the Famous Studios -  Paramount Popeye toons that they left off on, after Voulme 3 was released a few years ago or is this something entirely different? Would this become Volume 4 then/a continuation? 

 

I know there were many versions of Popeye made, but the first article makes it sound like it will be Volume 4, a continuation of the previous sets being released a year from now and the second article refers to it as possibly the 1960-62 version of the cartoons being released by the Archives, or am I getting this mixed up somehow? Any clarity to these two reports would be greatly appreciated. I'm happy Popeye is coming out, but hoping it will be the 4th Volume of the originals coming out.

I live in the Philadelphia area and this show was on in the late 1960's. It is a lot like Speed Racer. I think it is the same people who did both? We had a show on after school which ran until I think around 8pm. Wee Willie Weber and His Cartoon Club, introduced kids to all the Japanese cartoons and live action shows at the time. Really I think it is one of the coolest and best done cartoons of it's time.

The theatrrical shorts are still in the court of WHV retail, while the made-for-TV cartoons are being released by the Archive. For whatever reason, the Archive's TV Popeyes are coming out before the remaining theatricals.

As of note, while it's not that popular Cave Kids is going to be the front runner for that Flintstones spinoff hint. Given it's placement in polls as such.

 

If Captain Caveman is finally seeing the light of day then that only strengthens the beleive those long term fixups are going to happen (good sign for the earlier funny animals)

 

I haven't seen much news outside of this out of late, but then i also haven't been checking as often lol.

 

 

On the Clue Club note some info got mixed up to that person. As it did not win the poll it came in 3rd. ANd on the other WA already confirmed it is in the works. It was several months ago they said they looked to start it soon and there for should be in the works now. I assume it won't be that long of a fix up.

On the Flintstones topic, it would be nice if The New Fred and Barney Show  came out next, since it's 17 shows

is about the right size for a set, and not complicated, like some of the other compilation shows.

I guess i'm still hoping for the 1980 Flintstone Comedy show in the full versions. But given that it

has a captain caveman segment in it, who knows if WB would split it up, or just never release any

of the anthology type shows as complete episodes.

 

Clue Club, Captain Caveman, and Goldie Gold & Action Jack are my top 3 wanted unreleased shows.
