    Two years ago I helped Kit Parker Films and VCI Entertainment put out
    a dvd compilation of Max Fleischer Color Classics, under the title
    SOMEWHERE IN DREAMLAND. It sold moderately well, in fact VCI is
    completely sold out at the warehouse. Before they do another press
    run, I'd like to "fix" the problems and upgrade the quality.

    VCI is going to correct the authoring and technical imperfections
    (sound pops, menu problems, etc.). I'm on the hunt for better print
    elements. I'd had several collectors write in to tell me they have a
    color print of TIME FOR LOVE. If that was you, I'd like to borrow it.
    If you have better copies (16mm or 35mm film only) of COBWEB HOTEL,
    FRESH VEGETABLE MYSTERY, PEEPING PENGUINS, or better copies of any of
    the Color Classics than were on the disc, and are willing to loan them
    to me, contact me at [email protected]

    I don't need any video copies - and yes, I know the original materials
    are at UCLA Archives, but without permission of
    Republic/Paramount/Viacom we can't touch 'em.

    I wonder if VCI will allow those of us who have purchased previous sets to exchange them for the upgraded corrected versions?
