I just called and the nice lady said they were just informed of the program yesterday and aren't quite fully set up for it yet, so she took my name and number and said she'd be calling me next week to get the rest of my info (not sure why she couldn't just take it now, but whatever). So you folks might just want to wait a week.

I had the same experience. The woman who answered the phone was not yet familiar with the replacement program.

PLEASE EVERYONE WHO CALLS TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS OFFER, BE SURE TO MENTION THAT WE WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE SAME FOR VOLUME ONE!!!

Be polite, but bring it up to reinforce that we feel strongly about this! The first set should have been dealt with before volume 2 imo, as it is affected the most with wrongful cuts, edits and alternate audio tracks. It needs to be corrected if WHV wants our continued support of the series.

Thank you WHV for finally dealing with Volume 2, but we'd all hope to see the same for the first set sooner than later!


So please be sure to mention this and tell the receptionist or whoever answers the call to make note and pass it along. If everybody that calls does this, it will circulate fast and will be recieved by Warner Bros.

I intend to thank the person for correcting these discs, but also to state that my purchase is conditional and in good faith that volume 1 will be corrected...

This is the best and most effective way to spread the message.


Thank you again WHV for finally doing this!!!


Please get to work on Volume 1 now...

How do international customers, who bought the set in good faith, get replacement disc's?

Yes, a very big thank you! This is why the studio continues to have my support even when they release content in a way that I disagree with. Good job!

Cool. Pending someone reviewing the replacement disc, I can now go out and purchase Volume 2...

I've had the same experiance as all of you.

And Marco's right, nicely bring up Vol 1. I plan on asking about it when I get a call back. I was going to do it initially but she had no idea it was happening at all, she said she just got the memo.

Can we have people posting to let us know when they were called back? That way I can gauge if I'm being ignored because I'm in canada.

That's nice to hear. :-)

Now let's see some Reconstructed Episodes included as a feature on a reissue of the so-called "Scooby-Doo/Dynomutt Hour: The Complete Series" DVD set (taking a cue from the Huckleberry Hound and Yogi Bear DVDs)! That was a complete letdown, that one; I mean, separate syndicated versions of The Scooby-Doo Show and Dynomutt, Dog Wonder instead of the original 60-minute 1976 broadcast versions (which would have included only one opening and closing credits sequence per episode)?! Wot up wit dat?!

Restoring the original SDDH bridging sequences would be a benefit to us late bloomers who missed out on the original run and are thirsting for a chance to get acquainted with it for the first time.

After all, look what happened to Scooby's All-Star Laff-A-Lympics! :-D

I got a call back just now. I'm guessing there is no issues for Canadians calling this number, as the lady was very polite and helpful. I asked about volume 1, and they had no information on it at this time. In the chat, I think they said it was down the road.

Kudos to Warners on righting this wrong.

I'm confused. I have the Spotlight 2 collection, but I have no idea what this alternate audio track issue is. Is it obvious? What should I be looking (listening) for?

Thanks

The dialogue for certain cartoons featuring the character 'Mammy Two-Shoes' was re-recorded using contemporary voice actors for syndicated television broadcast at one point when it was deemed the original politically incorrect. This new replacement disc promises to restore the audio tracks to their original theatrical state.

I'm in Canada and I took advantage of this program. Very pleasant CS that I got too.

Thank you WB.

That's the big question for me, too. But I doubt they'll replace them for anybody outside the R1 region. I'd love to be proven wrong, though. Posted Image

I have mixed feelings about this. I really appreciate WB doing the right thing and offering replacement discs.

However, I purchased volume 1 based on the word from Jerry Beck that a replacement program would happen soon (That was 2 years ago!). Based on that experience, I refused to buy the second set. In order to take part in this offer, I will once again have to buy a DVD set in good faith. I really want to do this, but at the same time I'm extremely hesitent. I wish they would have issued the replacement for volume 1 first.

Does anyone have any idea how long it will be before the replacement program for volume one is launched?

I called and the nice lady took my request. She said they would send me an envelope for me to send my current discs to them and then they would send me the replacements. I hope a lot of people take advantage of this as it might effect the quickness of likeliness of Volume one getting replaced. People spread the word.

I just called and the lady told me that she would have to call me at 11 tomorrow morning to get my information.
