    Thanks for the responses. I feel reassured now about what we can expect and am really looking forward to this release. I also didn't know that Shout Factory had tried to get unedited prints for the TV collection. I'm still disappointed it couldn't be done, but I appreciate that the attempt was made.

    The transfers look GREAT!

    There are some jacket printing errors, thankfully the error is only on the printed jacket and not the film transfers.
    1) Bungled Bungalow (1950) is 4x3 1:33-1 and NOT 16x9 1:85-1 as indicated on the back.
    2) Safety Spin (1953) is 4x3 1:33-1 and NOT 16x9 1:85-1 as indicated on the back.
    3) Terror Faces Magoo (1959) is 16x9 1:85-1 and NOT 4x3 1:33-1 as indicated on the back.
    4) The title sequence listed on the back does not match the sequence on the discs.

    I was worried about these aspect ratios when I read the back and quickly popped the discs in and cued those cartoons. I was happy to see that Sony did the transfers right, Shout just made an error.
