    Press Release Warner Archive Press Release: Space Ghost & Dino Boy: The Complete Series (Blu-ray)

    Boomerang ran the one-hour version of Cattanooga Cats about 8 or 9 years ago. They looked and sounded fine to me. I don't know if anything was missing beyond the throws to commercial breaks.

    Press Release Warner Archive Press Release: Space Ghost & Dino Boy: The Complete Series (Blu-ray)

    I think it's a couple bits missing from each one in the first season -- plus all the Splits segments from Season 2, which were all new. But who knows how much of the Season 2 material is extant? There are about a half dozen skits from Season 2 on You Tube.

    Press Release Warner Archive Press Release: Space Ghost & Dino Boy: The Complete Series (Blu-ray)

    All of this is very interesting, thank you. I also regret all of my harping over the years about the Banana Splits, as maybe that didn't help -- I mean, I'm just one person, but I hope it didn't give the impression that whatever fans are out there might react badly if they didn't get it exactly...

    Press Release Warner Archive Press Release: Space Ghost & Dino Boy: The Complete Series (Blu-ray)

    I'd like to hear this podcast. I'm glad they are taking this stuff seriously and thinking about what it would take to get it done. In this HD-focused climate, for any of these shows they obviously have to go back and do new scans from film as opposed to using "off the shelf" tapes so if they...

    Press Release Warner Archive Press Release: Space Ghost & Dino Boy: The Complete Series (Blu-ray)

    Mixed feelings here. (1) I am glad to see a new Hanna-Barbera release from Warner Archive, yet (2) It's frustrating to me that now all they seem to want to do is put out Blu-Rays of shows they already released on DVD, while many other shows haven't been released at all, but at the same time...

    The Carol Burnett Show - Complete Series on Shout Factory TV

    This is certainly interesting. I am curious though -- in the case of episodes released on DVD by Time-Life, do these showings include any material cut from the DVD releases of the same episodes? Apparently they are showing episodes (or "versions of" episodes) which weren't released on DVD at all.

    TV on DVD news roundup

    I have suspected as much, but if true, that's a real shame. I loved that show.

    TV on DVD news roundup

    Well, you'd have to ask the author, but (assuming I am remembering this correctly) I guess it was written "for hire" for use in a DVD project released by the company (Genius Entertainment IIRC).

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Laurel & Hardy: The Definitive Restorations - in Blu-ray

    I don't have the set yet, I do plan to get it as there is stuff on it that's absolutely essential. But it doesn't seem to be a big priority given the issues with the transfers, or what was done to them after the fact. I'll wait until I can get a real good deal on it. Did someone say the DVD...

    TV on DVD news roundup

    I believe Andy Mangels wrote something back in the day when the "Archie's Funhouse" set came out, that he had written a booklet explaining about its contents -- it was a complicated release, combining elements of "Archie's Funhouse" and "The Archie Comedy Hour," the latter of which apparently...

    "In The News" (CBS Saturday morning series)

    Speaking of which, and I apologize for going off topic here: Just after midnight on New Year's Day 1976, my parents, sister and I were all up, and watching the New Year countdown, probably with Dick Clark. Just after midnight, a Quaker Oats commercial came on showing a close-up of the Quaker...

    "In The News" (CBS Saturday morning series)

    Yes, I know about "In The Know" -- and while I was alive and watching Saturday morning cartoons at the time, I unfortunately have no memory of those. It would have been nice to have those as extras on the "Josie And The Pussycats" DVD set, but two issues I can think of just off the top of my...

    The Flintstones Collection (Blu-ray) Coming Fall 2020

    You know, all this stuff could be "Easter Eggs." Do they still do that?

    FLINTSTONES ON BLU-RAY

    If the Winston ad was okay for Laserdisc, why not DVD or Blu-Ray? By the way, for anyone who has that Laserdisc set: What's the quality like on the Winston commercial(s)? I know at least one has appeared on numerous public domain releases, but I imagine Warner (or Turner or whoever released...

    Looney Tunes BD Platinum 1-3 compared to DVD Golden Collection 1-6?

    What is this "30 tunes disc?" The ones I have are on separate DVDs with about a half dozen cartoons on each.

    FLINTSTONES ON BLU-RAY

    I remember that as well. But this raises another question -- on the Season 3 DVD set, the "Meet The Flintstones" theme is on most of the episodes, but "Rise And Shine" is still on the first few. Is that how they aired? I would think they would have changed the theme song at the beginning of the...

    Looney Tunes BD Platinum 1-3 compared to DVD Golden Collection 1-6?

    All of this sounds wonderful. I would have loved to see the Warner cartoons released like the Disney Treasures (except not in limited editions and not with self-destructing DVDs that eventually won't play any more)! But as I recall, (1) the first volume (which isn't even called "Volume 1") was...

    FLINTSTONES ON BLU-RAY

    Well, if the original series you originally watched was the original 1960-66 "The Flintstones," then this is the set for you.

    Yeah, I read that. Thank God for DVDs. At least they haven't Orwelled those. Yet.

    Looney Tunes BD Platinum 1-3 compared to DVD Golden Collection 1-6?

    I picked up the "Stars Of Space Jam" DVDs about a year ago because they were in the $5 bin at Wal-Mart. Is there some kind of newer DVD version than those? (They were individual volumes.) I have never got the Platinum sets. Thinking about it now depending on the price. But I just couldn't...

    FLINTSTONES ON BLU-RAY

    I recall that some of the cold openings (or whatever the technical term is for the short scene before the opening titles) were clips from the episode, while others were the actual first scene in the episode. You know what I would really like to have as an extra? (Besides the Winston stuff!)...

    FLINTSTONES ON BLU-RAY

    Well, what is "current society?" Is it what's being portrayed and pushed in mainstream media, or is it how our own lives are in our own communities? For me, these are two very different things.

    Looney Tunes BD Platinum 1-3 compared to DVD Golden Collection 1-6?

    Are you referring to the "Space Jam" movie or the "Stars Of Space Jam" cartoon compilations? There is (or was) a 2-disc deluxe edition of "Space Jam" with a bunch of bonus cartoons on it as extras. They are shorts produced in the 1980s and 1990s in the spirit of the classic cartoons. The shorts...

    "In The News" (CBS Saturday morning series)

    I imagine this would never be commercially released, but I'd buy it if it was. "In The News" was a short educational segment run between shows Saturday mornings on CBS. It was hosted (via voice-over narration) by Christopher Glenn. It ran for many years -- I wonder how many they did, and if...

    The Ropers and Three's a Crowd

    I too wish to see "The Ropers" and "Three's A Crowd" released. My recollection is that the two episodes that were syndicated along with "Three's Company" had the "Three's Company" opening, and the original closing with the "Three's Company" theme dubbed over it -- and those two stayed that way...

    People's Court with Wapner?

    Just thinking about this. I enjoyed the People's Court with Judge Wapner when I was in high school. I wonder if there's any possibility of a DVD release, or MOD, or streaming, or whatever. I know there were zillions of episodes (well, not zillions but a lot). Were they even archived? I have...

    Happy Days question

    I don't know. I've only read a Robert Feder column about it, which suggested they are going through all kinds of shows and cutting or digitally altering things which might provoke bad behavior.

    Blu-ray Review Laurel & Hardy – The Definitive Restorations Blu-ray Review

    Okay, I don't have the set (yet) but if I'm understanding correctly, the team was aware that there was an audio sync problem in the reissue version of "Berth Marks," but since that's how it went out to theaters, it was considered correct, just as the 1929 version (with no sync issue) is...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Laurel & Hardy: The Definitive Restorations - in Blu-ray

    It sounds like that's what was done for the 2011 "Essential Collection" DVD set. Plus, that set includes the full* sound-era Hal Roach L&H library (*aside from a few films they sold off to other parties, all of which are available on DVD separately).
