    There is hope, my friend.

    If you were lucky enough to get the "Mickey Mouse In Living Color, Vol. 2" DVD Box set, you would have found it. It's on Disc Two of the collection. It's not the best Mickey short ever made, but it is fun to watch.

    ...and years before that DVD set RB was included in a Mickey Mouse collection released on laserdisc (in Japan) and as far as I can remember even on VHS - I think it was available in my country.

    But I'm digressing, of course. The best thing now is to get that Treasures DVD set - it's good value for money.

    Be careful though not to buy the German Code 2 Mickey Mouse set. It contains almost everything from the US Treasure set, for a much lower price, but the Runaway Brain short is missing.

    And be warned that the sound on this short is slightly out of synch on the recent R1 DVD. It's not too distracting, but might be a problem for some.

    It was appallingly out of sync. I couldn't believe they would put out a disc with such an obvious and major problem.

    Or perhaps I'm just sensitive to audio sync.

    Some reviewers couldn't spot it, but it is there -- especially when Brain-Transplanted-Pete says "Mickey", and his wouth doesn't widen to say "key" until after you hear the word on the soundtrack. You won't really notice it with the sound f/x like crashes and booms and lightning and music, you'll only really spot it with extremely specific things like dialogue. The audio is running about a half second ahead of the animation. It is a slight error, extremely annoying for animation fuss-budgets and propellor heads like me, but not something severe enough to spoil the short for mass audiences, who may not even spot it.

    That's strange. I wonder why they dropped the short on the German version?
