Don't shoot the messenger. Like the rest of you, things would be far different if I had a vote. Happily I was able to get almost everything Disney did for television on tape, and am now transferring it to DVD. The Treasures have so much more, though, in terms of quality transfers and extras, so it's sad to see the end. I'm just glad I was able to help get them to do some of what they did do.

Bill:


Thank you for the update and thank you for all your efforts on behalf of the Treasures line.


This is sad news indeed.

Yes sad news, indeed.  My husband and I purchased all the Treasures and they truly are that "Treasures" in our media library.  One question from this amateur /img/vbsmilies/htf/wink.gif... I was wondering if all the classic Donald, Mickey, Goofy and Pluto animated shorts were released in these collections or are we missing any?

All of the Mickey, Donald, and Pluto shorts have been released. All of the Goofys have been released except for one or two two-reelers from the late 1960s. There are also a handful of one-shot cartoons not released. I'd say about 80-85% of the shorts have been released.

I'm also still waiting for the release of the 2007 Goofy short "How to Hook Up Your Home Theater"  that was released in theaters with National Treasure 2: Book of Secrets.

 

Wikipedia is saying it will be released sometime next month on a DVD called "Have a Laugh!"  That's news to me.  Good news, mind you.  /img/vbsmilies/htf/biggrin.gif

I did a search on Amazon on "Have A Laugh" and came up with the link:

http://www.amazon.co...x=Have a Laugh!

 

See no mention about the Goofy "How to Hook  Up Your Home Theater"

It seems to be in the first "Have a Laugh" product description

 

Whoop it up when a mischievous baby seal hides out in Mickey's bathtub. Shriek with laughter as ghost hunters Goofy, Donald, and Mickey are scared silly by four spirited spooks. Then, get ready to roar when Goofy attempts to hook up his new, high-tech home theater system and, "BLAM!", things go hilariously haywire!

 

For some odd reason, the special features are listed, but not the shorts themselves.

I too conducted a search yesterday. I wanted to see what the cost was on titles from the Treasure Series that I decided to obtain.  The big river market place offered many titles as did ebay. The fact the series has reached a final conclusion became an incentive to pick up what I wanted.  The only red flag was beware of bootleg and confirm the tin the contents open or not.  I would love to get an HD of Scarecrow. I have to admit that is my jewel in my collection.  So very well done.  I thank Dave and Gord for giving us the heads up when the title was on pre order what 2 years ago.

"How to Hook Up Your Home Theater" has been available for quite a while as a digital download through the iTunes store for $1.99.

 

However, I would prefer a physical copy that is not wrapped in DRM that limits the playback to certain devices.

Just watching the 1990's Zorro suddenly reminded me that "Hey, the last thing I saw out was the 50's Zorro! What happened to the 2010 set?" - ah well, pity that the range had been retired. I wasn't big on the animated shorts, but I loved the live action stuff!


On a similar note, I imagine that the Wildlife Movies that came out a couple of years ago was the beginning and end of that range? Pity, those things were the bomb!

Sorry for reviving this very old thread, but after spying the web for some info, you guys here seems to be by far the best informed. While devastated to learn in this thread that the Disney Treasures series have been discontinued, I still wonder; Does anyone know if there are any plans to release all of the region 1 Disney Treasures in Europe? There are still numerous Disney Treasure titles that are only available in Region 1, which is somewhat usewhat useless for me living on the other side of the pond. Among the ones available only in region 1 are famous animations such as Chronological Donald vol 4 (only the first three are available on the European market, and in addition without some of the wartime cartoons such as "The Furhers face" - le gasp, think if my poor, European soul should be subject of anti nazi propaganda! :rolleyes:), Silly Symphonies vol. 2 (only the first one is released in region 2 so far), Disney Rarities, On The Front Lines, the list goes on. That's a lot of fantastic animation!! I've been post-poning buying the region 1 DVDs for several years, partly because I don't have a region-free DVD player, but also because imported DVDs are very expensive, not to mention that the European version often includes the option for subtitles or dubs, which would allow my daughter to enjoy the animations as well. But if the series has truly been discontinued, I'm now fearing the region 2 releases will never come. :( Any info on the matter would be deeply appreciated!

There is speculation Disney might, one day, revisit the series for Blu-ray. Considering the Region 1 DVDs were nearly cancelled twice before finally ending, I'm dubious to that ever happening. The chances of it happening for other regions would be even slimmer. So frankly, if I were you, I would seek out the Region 1 DVDs you're missing. They're expensive even here, without import costs, as it was a limited edition series that has mostly long sold out. But I'd say it's your best bet.

They need to rerelease the old Treasures. Donald 4 was out of stock too quick as opportunistic jerks bought up the boatload of them and started selling them for more than 100. I hate those type of people,

Disney seems to have an annoying view that if they can't sell over 100,000 copies, it's not worth doing. The last 2 Donald volumes sold 30 to 40 thousand copies in about 2 months. Why can't they live with that. As for Blu Ray, I think that Disney will at least release the cartoons in the animation collections in that format. The most perfect title for a blu Treasures treatment is, of course, Song of the South.
