For those of us who didn't pre-order, will we be able to purchase through Amazon? I note the above post has not been replied to. I am in the same boat in that I did not pre-order. I was going to but circumstances with my role as the only carer for my elderly Mother with Parkinson's Disease & other major medical problems meant I overlooked it. I wrote a few days ago to Thunderbeam asking for a way to pay him and get on the list and my intention to buy the next one but so far there has been no response.
It is a favorite film of mine and I do like the score. It may well have been the first animated feature I saw on TV here in Australia. I remember the Summer/Christmas we, as a family, saw Lady & the Tramp, and, at another venue, Rock Around the Clock when they were first released in Melbourne. The TV Gulliver would have been a little later.
In those days we first had TV for the Nov 1956 Melbourne Olympic Games and TV started in earnest the following year with two commercial stations and a government network with another commercial station added around 1960.
GTV9 Melbourne bought the MCA package of Paramount pre-1948 feaures all with the familiar MCA logo/fanfare and Gulliver was in this package then. Because it was family entertainment it was shown at a 7.30pm Sunday slot instead of the usual 8.30pm movie time. I remember the night well because an old lady, who was a neighbor of my Mother when she was growing up in an inner suburb, had come to our suburb to see Mom's mother who lived in a couple of streets from us. They were out so she found us and stayed for a meal and watched the broadcast with us. I don't recall the film on TV since but it may well have been.
I don't recall seeing Mr Bugs/Hoppity screened but I got to see this when one was able to buy 16mm prints that were floating around in the 1970s. I would buy a Blu Ray of this if it happened.
