Re: WB Archive Collection: DVDs On Demand!

:lol:

There are (perhaps apocryphal) stories of projectionists who panicked and began frantically searching their projectors for that hair, during initial screenings of that cartoon. :twisted:

Re: WB Archive Collection: DVDs On Demand!

Curiously, there is one 'Screwball Squirrel' cartoon missing from this first set: Happy Go Nutty . :? I presume the more popular 'Red' cartoons will be sprinkled throughout future volumes, to encourage sales .. i.e., Swing Shift Cinderella on vol. 2, Wild and Woolfy on vol. 3, etc. Probably the same...

Re: WB Archive Collection: DVDs On Demand!

Also (apparently) according to Jerry Beck, via a reply I'd read on Cartoon Brew: "At present this release is just blu ray. No DVD at this time. IF there is enough interest shown in a DVD version, it will go on sale at a later time." Like Randall , I'd also love to see the early M-G-M Harmon/Ising ca...

Re: Disney Pixar's Onward

The cassette in the actual japanese version of the movie would probably be labeled お父さん (otōsan), which is "father".

It might also be パパ (papa), which would be more roughly equivalent to the less-formal "dad".

Re: Disney Pixar's Onward

The larger text on the cassette says zenryoku shōnen .. roughly, "Determined Youth" (which is the title of the song being played in the trailer).

The smaller text says sukima suitchi, or Sukima Switch -- who is the artist singing the song.

Re: Official Star Wars Thread

Apparently, in early cuts of TROS , Threepio and Chewbacca did die .. and even the Millennium Falcon was destroyed during the climactic battle (killing Lando and Wedge). Those events were 'retconned' and/or dropped entirely in the re-cuts, due to poor audience scores. Speculation: George Lucas still...

Re: Oscar Nods for Anmated Films 2020!

Well .. I have such a poor track record, with the A-V Oscar contest .. that I can't help but feel that simply the fact I liked both Klaus & Missing Link somehow lessens their chances. :oops: :lol:

Re: Oscar Nods for Anmated Films 2020!

Klaus and Missing Link were my two favorite animated features of 2019. I'm happy to see them both nominated .. and would be good with either of them winning. :) TS4 and/or HTTYD3 probably have better odds, though.

Re: Charlie Brown Specials

Peanuts was huge in Japan when I lived there as a little kid, in the 1970s .. in fact, the very first time I saw It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown was on japanese TV (with japanese dialogue). I also saw Snoopy Come Home and Race For Your Life, CB (both in english language) in packed movie theat...

Re: New Disney Streaming Service: Disney+

Huh. I'd thought The Black Cauldron had been released on Blu-ray .. but I guess I must've 'mis-remembered' its 25th Anniversary DVD release as a BD release. :oops: I do recall older Disney 'canon' lists which included the likes of So Dear To My Heart or Song Of The South .. but I've never personally...

Re: New Disney Streaming Service: Disney+

The first time I saw Make Mine Music was on The Disney Channel, in the 1980s .. complete with "The Martins And The Coys." There was 'zero' controversy over that segment at the time, AFAIK. I later bought MMM on japanese Laserdisc .. likewise complete, with its opening "M&C" segment (which -- sadly -...

Re: New Disney Streaming Service: Disney+

I'm just happy to dig up the little-seen 90's Silver Surfer cartoon again--Ah, Thanos, when he was still a dangerously nutty bad-guy, and not some soulful proactive galactic activist... :shock: whoa .. something I'd worked on is on Disney+.. I built a bunch of CG props and spacecraft for Saban's Si...

Re: Official Star Wars Thread

I re-watched The Force Awakens on Disney+ Saturday .. re-watched The Last Jedi on Netflix Sunday .. and saw The Rise of Skywalker in my local theater Monday morning. 8) I think the new trilogy 'works' quite well, for what it is. Could it have been 'more'..? Oh, certainly .. but I'm rather satisfied ...

Re: WB Archive Collection: DVDs On Demand!

Instant purchase, for both; thanks for the heads-up, gaastra..!

Cupcake is still one of my favorite characters from this period of Saturday morning cartoons. :)
