Yes, I would love blu-ray from Disney, but I can't imagine how miniscule that chance would be. It's almost like Disney wants to forget the Walt persona. Just stamp his signature logo on the modern material, and that is all that is needed. Releasing Anthology program material without the Walt intros - I mean, c'mon.

 

I don't think anyone at that company understands the respect older Disney fans have for Walt Disney; the high regard that Walt Disney engendered, from a generation of kids who grew up on his entertainment for so many years.

 

They don't even put his name on the films he actually made anymore. Compare the 50th Anniversary Blu-ray of Sleeping Beauty, where "Walt Disney" is right above the title to the upcoming Diamond Edition. Now it's just plain old "Disney." They're too lazy to even add an apostrophe and an "s" at the end to give it a possessive tense. And this is an across-the-board policy. No more "Walt Disney's" or "Walt Disney Productions'" or "Walt Disney Pictures'" or any of that. It's ironic they made a movie where Walt is the central character, yet it seems they've been doing what they can to distance themselves from his legacy even though there wouldn't be a studio today without it.

 

I don't know why Disney doesn't create a cable channel just for vintage material. They can even call it Disney Sr.

Enough is enough, Disney. No more evasions or excuses. We DEMAND the release Song of the South on Blu-ray along with the uncut version of Bedknobs and Broomsticks on Blu-ray. I will not support anything your company produces until then.

Preach it, Disney just like a lot of other studio's need to stop and remember where the started and came from.  I roll my eye's everytime I see Disney instead of Disney's or Walt Disney's. How lazy do you have to be to not add " 's " does whoever in the Art Dept who does the covers not pass elementary school english?

 

I'd love to see a Vault Disney channel.

I wonder if that was frequently shortened since from about 25 seconds in until the 53 second mark, I don't really remember that portion of the introduction?

More Ziv -- especially I Led 3 Lives (but also Man Called X, Men Into Space, Mr. District Attorney, Man and the Challenge)

1950s Dragnet

The Green Hornet (more of a possibility now that the rights for Batman have been cleared?)

 

"The Green Hornet" - definitely a holy grail

My Holy Grail would be the complete series of Benson with the 3 filmed alternate endings of the series.

I watched that YouTube video of "Go Home, Clayton" a few days ago! Thanks for letting me know the title. All I ever saw was the syndicated version which was chopped up. It was even funnier seeing the full version. The syndication version chopped off the part of Benson letting air out of Pete's tires. I always wondered why Pete needed an air pump as it was never explained in the syndicated version. Thanks again!

No problem Ron1973!! Glad I could help!! And glad you enjoyed!! I always felt that Benson was one of those shows that couldn't afford to be syndicated or chopped up in order to enjoy properly. A lot of important, funny parts are left out, or it ends abruptly as the syndicated versions cut off the end. That's another reason why I'm hoping for a complete unedited version of the complete series.

A minor one by comparison, but the 2001 Transformers: Robots in Disguise.  Yes it was a silly anime dub, but has not been seen for so long in the States.  Some episodes not at all due to being just after 9/11. 


CBS = Constantly Butchering Shows.

Not sure if it quite qualifies as a holy grail, but a HD remastering of Combat! along the lines of what some other iconic programs have received  (Including fellow Image Entertainment releases The Dick Van Dyke Show and the Twilight Zone) would be welcomed.

On top of my list are two shows yet to be offically released due to music clearance problems:

 

Cold Case

The Lawrence Welk Show

 

 

also, there are shows that have been stalled partway in their DVD releases for years:

 

Peyton Place

Green Acres

Burke's Law

Malcolm in the Middle

Matt Houston

Barnaby Jones

 

You'd think that with the current popularity of one of its stars, it would be time to revive Malcolm in the Middle for dvd...!

Lawrence Welk was on from 1951-1982.

 

First locally in Los Angeles from 1951-1955 then on ABC from 1955-1971 and first run syndication from 1971-1982. All together 31 years or so. Probably more like 30 1/2 years since it was on ABC for 27 1/2 years.

hi brian,

 

with that length, i can see why not all 31 years are gonna be waited on, before a complete series would be put out.
