    THE MONKEES TV SERIES: Show Facts & Speculation About Possible Future HD Releases

    Total coincidence that Andrew commented on one of his eBay listings about the Blu-ray set, a couple of says before my interview with Micky was published on the web. I agree with you The Obsolete Man and Bob O'Link about your thoughts on The Monkees Blu-ray set. Marshall...

    THE MONKEES TV SERIES: Show Facts & Speculation About Possible Future HD Releases

    I agree, Tony. That's why I wanted to ask him about a pared down, less lavishly packaged release. I bought The Monkees Complete Series sets in 2003, the ones where the boxes look like little record players. I know those DVD's were eventually released in less fancy, DVD storage cases. I realize...

    THE MONKEES TV SERIES: Show Facts & Speculation About Possible Future HD Releases

    I interviewed Micky Dolenz last week about the new Mike and Micky Show Live album (which is excellent, BTW), and also other subjects. I asked him about a re-release of The Monkees Complete Series Blu-ray box set, perhaps in less lavish packaging, pared down, etc. He said that would be good, but...

    Jerry Beck was the guest on the Stu's Show podcast yesterday. Jerry said there definitely will be a Tex Avery Screwball Classics Volume 2 Blu-ray released this year, before Christmas.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Tex Avery Screwball Classics - Volume 1 - in Blu-ray

    It's interesting, too, that an instrumental version of "Singin' in the Rain" plays in the background as Big Chief Rain-In-Face first appears in the cartoon. The song was performed in the MGM film, "The Hollywood Revue of 1929", 13 years before the Gene Kelly "Singin' in the Rain" film. My...

    Next Hanna-Barbera set?

    When I first saw the episodes as a young child in the 1960's, Wally, Touche, and Lippy and Hardy were shown as part of an S.F. Bay Area kids show titled Captain Satellite. So, at least in 1967-1968 there wasn't a Wally Gator Show in the Bay Area market. Marshall...

    Next Hanna-Barbera set?

    Seven months later, I finally got around to checking out and reviewing the Lippy the Lion and Hardy Har Har DVD set. Yes, the episodes were taken from 16mm, and the audio levels fluctuate a bit between the cartoons. It would have been nice to have captions and different language choices for the...

    Videos played during VH1's first hour on air

    NBC had Friday Night Videos, too., which started in July 1983. It was originally 90 minutes, and then shortened to an hour.

    Videos played during VH1's first hour on air

    Hello all, Yes, as we know, VH1 did run music videos before they began airing shows like Basketball Wives, RuPaul's Drag Race, and more. Did anyone on the site see VH1's first day on the air, on January 1, 1985? If so, what were your thoughts? I wrote a web article about the videos played...

    New book about Ross Bagdasarian Sr., The Alvin Show etc.

    I didn't know that fact about Ross Sr. not providing the singing vocals of The Chipmunks on the post 1964 albums until I read the book. Also, I hadn't heard of Ron Hicklin, but he and The Eligibles and The Ron Hicklin Singers sure provided the vocals on a lot of TV shows theme songs.
