    I went around today to the four major stores that sell dvds in my area (Wal Mart, Best Buy, Suncoast, Hastings). I talked to sales clerks at all the stores and none of them had ever heard of the disney treasures, I had them all check to see if they had any in stock, and what price they'd be selling them at tomorrow. None of the stores had any in stock, and had no idea what they would be priced at, I talked to a manager at Suncoast, he'd never heard of them, questioned whether they were even coming out at all, saying Buena Vista never meets release dates, and Finally checked his release date book which didn't even have them listed. In all a very frustrating evening, and it looks like I'm placing an online order for them.

    The store I work at (Wal-Mart) here in Albuquerque got our shipment today, I did not check the price as I had already ordered my copies through Amazon. Check the stores tomorrow, I think you will be able to find these titles with out a problem.

    The usual ignorant b&m's are bad places to look for this DVD (Blockbuster, Walmart, etc etc). I had this in my hands the other day and a few days later, I was looking in these same places. BB told me they don't have it. "We only have it on VHS". Is this title a full frame deal?

    They do have it at the Disney Store I checked in and I'm guessing this will be your best bet around the country.

    Got all 4 at the Disney Store on Michigan this morning. Cost 22.99 each, plus I got 10% off with my Disney Club card. I'm watching the Disneyland USA right now.

    All of these are very classy discs.

    These are definatly uncut. There are parts with Davy Crockett characters in Frontierland talking about the "Injuns" and "Red Skins" and their hot breath, etc, etc. Also a whole segment from "Song of the South" (in b&w) including some of the live action.

    Tower books and video had them today (tuesday). This was the first I have seen of these so it was a bit of an eye-opener for me.

    What was the Costco price?

    I was told by one online dealer that distribution was delayed but that they should be available on Wednesday. I also note that Amazon has revised their date to December 7.

    "Is this title 4x3?"

    Uh... what else would it be? These discs are vintage Disney!

    I wasn't all the eager about these titles,
    but then yesturday I picked up
    Mickey Mouse in Living Color
    and
    was THRILLED with that collection.
    (I paid $24.99 at the Fry's electronics, where
    they had just a few laying on a table.)
    Today, I ordered the Silly Symphonies
    on line, since I cannot reall afford all four
    this month, and I'm not really all the exited
    about about the "live action" releases,
    (though the vintage tour though Disneyland would be nice).
    I can see why they call them "uncensorsed," since
    in one animated short, Mickey takes in some bug spray
    and goes on what looks to be something akin to an
    LSD trip. He even ends up on a giant mushroom:
    how subtle is that?
    I love it!

    Walmart here had the DVD's, in a special display no less, but sold out, except for three Davy's. Even though I missed getting the disc tonight, I was happy to see the quick responce on these titles. I am sure we will see more now.

    Can anyone tell me if the Mickey disc includes the Jack in the Beanstalk cartoon with Mickey as Jack. I have fond memories of that one.

    Thanks in advance.

    For some reason Lasers Edge still didn't have the Micky tin in yesterday. Go figure.

    They did have the other 3 however. I picked up Silly. I like the others, but not enough to buy at this point.
