this is probably the most exciting news to come out of Disney in years!

Really looking forward to these!

Excellent.

Warner commissioned a dozen or so shorts to gear up for Looney Toons back in action but after they were finished instead of being attached to all WB films leading up to LTBIA that year they were stuffed in a vault because one executive got mad at another executive.

This is just one of the reasons why I loved the Pixar acquisition/merger/takeover with Disney. The Pixar folks seem to know what they're doing, they attach shorts to their movies and those are sometimes what draws people. Smart move and I can't wait to see them now.

I'm feeling really good about Pixar being able to fix things at the house of mouse.

It should be fun.

One thing it won't have, sadly, is any mention of Buena Vista, which is about to get rebranded according to IMDb.

I saw this short at "National Treasure 2" I almost wetted the seat, I was laughing so hard. They managed to catch and portray every aspect of the HT experience.

I will not soon forget the admonition to purchase "a moderate set" while Goofy swoons over one as big a the proverbial side of a barn. I chuckle even now over Goofy's solution to a tangle of extra cables, and of course to his unique method of accessing the backsides of the equipment. And, I hope I can get this on disk so I can see just how well the subwoofer demonstration plays at home, on my slightly less gargantuan setup!

I loved this cartoon; it was the main reason I saw National Treasure 2. I thought to myself, "yep, that's just like me" at every twist and turn of the thing.

I'd like to see more new theatrical short cartoons with the classic characters, and I'm bummed that the NT2 DVD and BD specs do not mention this cartoon.
