For any of my friends across the pond who haven't seen the MoC Blu-ray Disc yet, you're in for a treat.

This'll be a first for me! 


Looking very much forward to the opportunity  to see this. 

There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!

Another one to add to my silent/early sound collection.

I'll pick this up and happily upgrade my DVD. The colour cover art is kind of creepy!
