    This is good news if some restoration was done Hopefully more than the Mr. Magoo show release otherwise this will be a dissapointingly rough and faded looking release.

    The theatricals are from Sony's holdings, so they should look considerably better. The upcoming UPA Jolly Frolics set from TCM should be a good barometer on how well the Magoos will look.

    Amazon, after previously advising that it was to come three months earlier have now announced that it is no longer available in an e-mail I have just received and canceled my long standing pre-order. Any further on this?

    Shout's Facebook responses indicate that they changed the date it will be released, but haven't announced it yet. My guess is Fall or Winter 2012.

    Can't wait on this one. I'll probably order the tv collection at the same time.

    I asked Shout's Facebook page about it. They say it's still on their docket, but they haven't scheduled a release date yet.

    According to Jerry Beck's last visit on Stu's Show, the restoration work on the cartoons is done. The holdup is on Shout's end.

    Great. I've been waiting for this and hoping 1001 Arabian Nights would be included. As a bonus, the "Shout" price is only about $30 so this should be affordable.

    I'm not as familiar with the theatrical Magoo cartoons as I am the made-for-TV ones...Is there anything in these that's at risk of getting edited out or dubbed over for the sake of PC/sensitivity as happened with the Magoo TV cartoon release?

    first , glad to see this is coming, and according to cartoon brew it is going to include the full version of 1001 Arabian Nights, but after the delay, and knowing that Sony went to the negatives (did the heavy lifting) would have been nice to see a blu release of this as well. I am sure that this is going to look great, but hey one can hope.

    Perhaps there will be a reissue--would love to see this paired with the UPA collection on BD

    Not particularly--The Chinese houseboy was invented for the TV series, and Magoo was either alone or had his nephew Waldo.
    As for 1001 Arabian Nights, I can't say (still waiting to see it), but UPA TV committed more cartoon offenses than the movie studio ever did.

    Also, the TV Magoos video masters were edited ages ago for television before Classic Media ever got them, hence the edited TV episodes were the only ones Shout Factory were even able to release. Shout Factory even went about asking collectors if they had unedited prints they could use because Classic Media wouldn't provide them, with no luck.

    Since these cartoons for the theatrical set were remastered by Sony from the original negatives, the chances of anything being edited out is absolutely zero.

    In regards to 1001 Arabian Nights, that one is pretty tame in that regard. Nothing on the level of Charlie.
