    Next Hanna-Barbera set?

    I use Mac DVDRipper Pro to first create a disk image on my Mac of the DVD I'm ripping (saves wear and tear on the optical drive during the next step), then I use Handbrake to convert the cartoon shorts on the disk image to MP4 files. I'm still on iTunes (rather than the newer Music and TV apps)...

    Press Release Warner Archive Press Release: Josie and the Pussy Cats in Outer Space! The Complete Series

    I'm happy to see any classic Hanna-Barbera title get released. I own all of the SD releases and have started collecting the HD Blu-Rays. Even so, I'm surprised at the titles that are getting priority for release on Blu-Ray. I would have put Space Ghost and both iterations of Josie and the Pussy...

    Starting a Digital Library

    I've been building my digital library for about 10 years now. I have nearly 7,000 animated shorts, tv shows, movies, and music videos that I have either purchased or converted from my physical media collection. I use iTunes to store, manage, and organize it all. While I appreciate the streaming...

    Are there any cases where streaming is better than physical release?

    One interesting advantage I've found to purchasing digital copies through iTunes is that Apple periodically makes upgrades from SD to HD available free of charge for previous purchases, as the various studios allow, and will apparently be doing the same with 4K titles as they become available...

    Next Hanna-Barbera set?

    Yes, I've noticed this on The Funky Phantom set, too. I've had mine for several years now, so it's not a problem with only the recently produced discs. I just assumed it was something built into the show itself when it was originally slapped together.

    Next Hanna-Barbera set?

    No argument there. I remember the original show. I was just pointing out the availability of the Grape Ape segments by themselves. I always prefer to collect complete shows myself, but I break up them up into individual shorts, bumpers, and titles when I bring them into my digital collection...

    Next Hanna-Barbera set?

    This is probably old information, but all 32 of the Grape Ape segments/installments are available on iTunes without Tom and Jerry.

    Unreleased Disney Movies & TV

    Very nice job! I have long been converting my discs over to digital files (at a fairly generous bit rate) and watch most of my collection via Apple TV these days. I've also started appreciating purchased digital downloads vs. hard copies, depending on the title, as owning a large collection...

    Unreleased Disney Movies & TV

    A while back, I was elated to find Charley and the Angel on iTunes in HD. I agree that it would be best to have classics on disc rather than just digital, but looking at iTunes again today I'm seeing a number of the titles some of you are looking for and almost all of them are in HD. - Darby...

    Next Hanna-Barbera set?

    Interesting that the Wally Gator set on iTunes is not the Wally Gator Show (with Lippy the Lion & Hardy Har Har, Touché Turtle & Dum Dum shorts), but strictly all 52 Wally Gator shorts by themselves. Maybe this is consistent with other Hanna Barbera shorts on iTunes, rather than the way they...

    Blue Racer & Hoot Kloot coming in May!

    Dogfather and Misterjaw are the final two to be released from the titles listed in Kino Lorber's original press announcement last year. They had initially said the titles would all be released in 2016, but they slowed down. Hopefully we'll see the last two released by the end of this year.

    Hokey Smokes Bullwinkle - Season 4 is coming!!

    I hope the music issues have been corrected on this and future sets. I realize that Jay Ward's daughter swears they went back to the original tunes that Jay himself wrote and wanted in the series, but this is not the music we all remember airing on tv. Some bits they got right, but most...

    Jerry Beck on Stu's Show: Tommorrow at 4

    I've collected all six of the Golden Collections so far and anxiously look forward to more Looney Tunes being released. I see no problem with them being released as single disc collections because each of the 4 discs in the GC's were typically devoted to an individual character or character...

    Thriller (Boris Karloff Series) Rumored coming to DVD

    Thanks everyone for your replies! I'm definitely going to be getting this set when it's released.

    Thriller (Boris Karloff Series) Rumored coming to DVD

    Wow, I really hope this is the tv series I've been wondering about for years, but had no clue what it might have been called as I had only seen maybe an episode or two as a child back in the 70s. All I could remember was it being episodic, black and white, and in the horror vein. Now that I've...

    MERRY SITCOM - Christmas eps from Shout coming November 3rd

    I think this disc is a great idea. I was just talking with a friend of mine the other day about compiling all of the christmas episodes from bewitched, gilligan's island, i love lucy, the dick van dyke show, the lucy show, etc. myself before the next christmas season comes. now I'll have more to...

    "The Mike Douglas Show" (1977) -- A Personal (Retro) Review

    Nice reading that review. Brings back memories. I never saw that 1977 episode, but I remember watching the show faithfully in the late 70s and early 80s.

    Anyone Know Name of 1960's or 1970's cartoon?

    Quote: I'm pretty sure you're talking about "Bailey's Comets." It was done in the Wacky Races vein, but all of the competing teams were on roller skates instead of in cars. Each team had a different name and Bailey's Comets was the name of the main stars, the hero team. As I recall, the team...

    Good job explaining, Shane. And thanks again Parker! Looks like your graphics man is on top of it and your icon is up and ready to go. Looks great!

    HTF iPhone/iPod Touch Backgound Images

    Thanks Parker! Perhaps Peter can also use one of those logos to whip up a Home Screen icon for HTF on the iPhone/iPod Touch too! Just drop a 57 x 57 pixel image named "apple-touch-icon.png" into the root level folder of the HTF site and that's all it takes. A custom icon for HTF would look hot...

    A Charlie Brown Christmas-out of sync

    I've watched the new WB version all through the holidays and I even just double checked it and mine is not out of sync at all. Not even a little bit. So perhaps there are bad copies floating around out there. I bought mine as an individual release, not in the the holiday box set.

    Original Super Friends, Season 1 Available on iTunes

    I realize this is a DVD forum, but as this title has been eagerly anticipated on DVD by many I thought this news would be of some interest here. I just came across Super Friends, Season 1 for purchase on iTunes. It's available as individual 45:xx min episodes or the full season. Would be nice...

    The effect of the Blu Ray win on TV DVD

    I think most people see no reason to switch Blu-ray until they own a hi-def television to really take advantage of the format. With the cost of HDTV's still being at least a $1000+ investment, that will prevent most households from buying one until their old TV takes a dive. I think the...

    Warner Home Video Tom & Jerry Replacement Program (UPDATE 1/30/07 POST #134)

    I finally got around to ordering my replacement discs for both volumes today. Just thought I'd post an update here to let people know the program is still in effect. The woman I spoke to said I would receive the new discs in 7-10 days.

    Inspector Cartoons - DVDs when?

    So, 17 of The Inspector cartoons are being released on DVD in Region 1 on March 4th. That leaves another 17 to be released in the future, though all of them have been available for about a year on iTunes as part of The Pink Panther Show Season 1.

    Special Announcement regarding the third Tom & Jerry Spotlight Collection

    Perhaps WB releases these sets the way they do intentionally. They know that a certain number of harcore collectors will insist on having the cut material restored so they appease the callers of the special 800 number with an unedited replacement and shut us up. Meanwhile, the edited versions of...

    Cingular users: How good or bad is your service?

    I'm in Seattle and I have had near perfect service from Cingular/AT&T for 2 years now, including while traveling to other cities such as San Diego, LA, Las Vegas, and Phoenix. I'm very happy with them.

    Purple Rain and Out for Justice coming to both formats on July 24th from Warner

    Looking back, these are the same extras from the last 20th Anniversary DVD release. Perhaps I was a little hard on WB's handling of this last release, but on the other hand this is now just rehash from last time and nothing new for the new formats. Still no Prince involvement. I hope the menus...

    Purple Rain and Out for Justice coming to both formats on July 24th from Warner

    Given the shoddy way Warner handled the last Purple Rain dvd release (poor menu graphics, no apparent Prince involvement for special features), I wouldn't expect any better this time. Prince and Warner Bros. hate each other so WB won't be doing anything special for his movies ever, other than...
