Does anyone here have copies of any of the following Cambria New Three Stooges cartoons?:
A Fishy Tale
A Little Past Noon
Bell Hop Flops
Bridge on the River Cry
Bully for You, Curly
Curly in Wonderland
Curly's Birthday a-Go-Go
Dig That Gopher
Feudin' and Fussin' and Hillbully
Goldibear and the Three Stooges
It's a Small World
Land Ho Ho Ho
Late for Launch
Little Red Riding Wolf
No Smoking Aloud
Norse West Passage
Out of Space
Queen Quong
Rob N. Good
Rug a Bye Baby
Snow Brawl
Surfs You Right
Suture Self
Table Tennis Tussle
The Bear Show-Off
The Mad Mail Mission
Three Good Knights
Three Lumps and a Lamp
Three for the Road
Three Wizards of Odds
Tree is a Crowd
Which is Witch?
Who's for Dessert?
'Sno Ball

I know, these cartoons are bad, but for me there are certain elements that make them watchable, particularly the stock music underscore used, plus it has its share of amusing animation errors. These are the only ones I've yet to find decent copies of on the 'net (although some of these are out there, but horribly out of sync).

Well, I was gonna refer you to this DVD set...

https://www.amazon.com/N...Collection/dp/B00DRQETNI

...but yikes, that is way more than what I bought it for!

(I also just checked eBaY and the prices are no better there. What gives? These cartoons are public domain!)

How about this one?

Looks to have all that content for far less money. (I know nothing about this set, or how good or bad it is.)

Much more reasonably priced!

And it has a lot of additional content too. Mainly a compendium of stuff previously released elsewhere. I don't have this particular set since I already had almost everything in it, but definitely good bang for your buck. Although from what I have read, the bitrate may not be equal to the previous versions.

But if you don't have any of this stuff, it is a treasure trove. It has the cartoon series, the solo Columbia shorts of Shemp, Joe Besser and Joe De Rita, Paul Howard's excellent miniseries "Hey Moe, Hey Dad," and the 2000 ABC-TV biographical movie about the Stooges.

Regarding the cartoons, they are okay transfers (the old Rhino DVDs were better), and they are not presented in sequence -- they are copied from old VHS/Beta masters and just slapped together, with one opening and one closing cut back onto each cartoon. But they are all there.

Hey, Mark-
Thanks for letting me know about that "Big Box of Nyuks" set! Sounds like a pretty great deal. Regarding the cartoons, quality actually is no object for obtaining them, so thanks for the heads up. It'll feel great to own the Boys' classic Columbia shorts on video.
