As well as being cut, these cartoons are likely to be unrestored and full of dirt, pan and scanned (if appropriate) and once again Warner are releasing their cartoon content on a DVD5 (just over an hour of cartoons. :frowning:)

Don't buy it.

Then why does the description of it say "dual layer"?

And the CinemaScope shorts do exist in widescreen. I have them on LaserDisc. It's entirely possible that those masters will be used.

I wouldn't put TOO much stock into that particular piece of info. Warner often leaves that item at "Dual Layer", which appears to be the default, until they know one way or another right before release date.

The same thing in that system happens to the Packaging Type: they will almost always say "DVD tray (FLP snapper)" for a long time even though we know it's a Citizen Kane type digipack or whatever.

They're good on the major issues (date, price, audio, etc.) but not so good on the minor details. :)

All of the shorts are presented in the 1.33:1 fullscreen aspect ratio. While some of the shorts were filmed in this ratio, or the 1.37:1 ratio, others were filmed in CinemaScope. “Mucho Mouse” is an example and it was originally filmed in the 2.35:1 CinemaScope widescreen ratio. While the title cards have remained intact, the movie itself is cropped to fill the screen.

What's this about the entire uncut collection? I didn't hear about that.

Wow... I didn't realize that there was gonna be two seperate releases.

So can someone sum up everything we know about the uncut version? Or is it just what can be learned from the transcript?

Let's hope that when they get around to releasing the Cinemascope cartoons, that they don't use the old Laserdisc letterbox transfers, but instead give us brand new ANAMORPHIC transfers.

I notice that one of the MGM Cinemascope Droopy cartoons is featured on the new "High Society" DVD and it is presented in NON Anamorphic letterbox( ex laserdisc transfer from The complete Tex Avery), which does not look good for Tom and Jerry being Anamorphic at this time.

Fingers crossed though.

Since the Droopy cartoon on the HIGH SOCIETY DVD is a "free extra", it's understandable that remastering it for 16x9 anamorphic would not have been requisite.

If WB is going to the trouble of releasing uncut, theatrical versions of the T&J cartoons (seemingly aimed at the collectors), I would venture it's very likely that new anamorphic transfers will be done for these proposed new DVD collections. Just a guess at this point, but a logical one.

Even though the cartoon on the HIGH SOCIETY DVD was not anamorphic, I still thoroughly enjoyed it, and was glad WB thought to include it just for a bit of added fun.
