    WB has been bashed heavily for the past few weeks, here on HTF and elsewhere. Now we may have to kiss some serious ass to thank them for listening - positively - to all the criticism and doing something about it:
    1) We've got an OAR release of Wonka on the way, and it seems for LoTR, too. Probably C&D as well. Now if they can just clear up that nastly trilogy of MARred Pokemon films... [​IMG]
    2) Classics are on-the-way: Citizen Kane. Doctor Zhivago. Now Voyager. Little Women (1933). Dirty Harry (hey; I think they're classics! [​IMG] ) There's more work to be done, but the crack in the vault is widening!
    3) Warner used a keepcase?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
    No kidding. Go pick up Teletubbies: Baby Animals. Yes, it's a Warner release...the logo is plain as day on the back, lower left area (next to PBS Home Video logo). It is a white (natch) keepcase with an extra-bright pink sleeve insert.
    Perhaps PBS, Itsy-Bitsy, or Ragdoll (the "partners" on 'Tubbies home releases) basically forced WB into doing it. Maybe Warner is handling it differently because they somehow consider it a "different" kids release than, say, Scooby Doo or, well, everything else they've ever released!
    I don't know. All I know is this: It's a keepcase - no matter the color - and the WB logo is somewhere on the box!!!
    $15 at Best Buy, BTW...*if* you have kids and don't feel that Tinky Winky is the embodiment of Lucifer (that honor is reserved for Barney, of course!) [​IMG]
    Now if we can just get Warner back into the habit of doing TV series in episode order. I lied...they're only 3-for-4.
    Ah well...there's always another crusade to fight! Sigh.

    Calm down, Antonio! I was being playful when I suggested we might have to "Kiss (WB's) ass". I definately didn't mean it. You are right-on-target...this mess is theirs to begin with. I was just suggesting that they might actually be LISTENING to our criticism. And responding to it by changing things for the better. And that's a GOOD thing.
    And you tell my son that 'Tubbies don't count! [​IMG] His joyous, capering-around-the-living-room-laughing-and-dancing reaction to my inserting of the disc is all the response I need. 'Tubbie's taught him - early! - colors and counting and singing and other stuff. So they're okay in my book...even if I had to be dragged into that recognition by my toddler.
