I'm not familiar with "Felix and Rarities" and can't find it on Amazon. What's on it? Can it still be purchased?

The full title is actually "Felix the Cat and Rarities from the 1920s." I'll update the list. It was one of the very first Thunderbean releases, and I think Steve might have sold it exclusively on eBay.

As I recall, Felix was not a wide release, and had a very limited distribution among those that were in on the early days of Thunderbean. Steve did not consider it an "official" release, though he did put it out with a regular case and cover. I do have a copy, and feel privileged to have it.

A quick comparison of bort's list above with Steve's new list of special discs reveals I'll only be missing the following items from the complete special disc collection:

#5 - 35mm IB Technicolor Noveltoons MPEGs: ??/????
#10 - Gulliver's Travels DVD+MPEGs: 03/2013
#16? - Yuletide Flickers (original release): BD+DVD: 12/2015
#?? - Cartoon Cornered BD+DVD: 07/2016
#?? - Thunderbean Thursday 2016 BD+DVD: 07/2016
#?? - Halloween Rarities BD+DVD: 10/2016
#?? - Ragdoll Feature and Cartoons BD+DVD: soon!
#?? - Fleischer Rarities BD+DVD: soon!

I have the official Yuletide Flickers set, so I'd suppose I'm pretty well covered there. Is there a possibility that the soon-to-be-released Noveltoons set and set #15 would cover any of the content of set #5 above? And would the official Gulliver's Travel's set cover any of the content of set #10 above? If so, I'll really only be missing 5 special discs. Not bad either way.Buzzy

The content from Special Disc #10 was later remastered and officially released on the Gulliver's Travels Blu Ray. So if you own that, you should be set.

Special Disc #5 contained the following Noveltoons:

Gilly Goose (1944)
Suddenly It's Spring (1944)
Yankee Doodle Donkey (1944)
Scrappily Married (1945)
A Lamb in a Jam (1945)
Cheese Burglar (1946)
The Stupidstitious Cat (1947)
The Enchanted Square (1947)
Much Ado About Mutton (1947)
Quack-a-Doodle-Doo (1950)

I suspect that most/all of these will probably appear on the forthcoming Noveltoons set or as bonus cartoons on the "Ragdoll" special disc.

Isn't Fleischer Rarities going to be a replicated release instead of a special set?

I wouldn't worry too much Duck. Most of this stuff hasn't shipped out yet. Not including the pre-orders for official releases that are in progress (Flip, A&C, Fleischer, Mid-Cent Modern, Noveltoons), I think the last "special set" to mail out was "Politiks & Poulty."

"Grand Old Toons", "Popeye & Betty", "Warners & Scrappy" are still pending . . . .

Yeah, it seems that Steve is waiting until A&C Rarities is fully completed so he can just send those with all the special discs that people purchased this month.

He did mention that Grand Old Toons was finished, and posted stills on one of these threads, so I imagine that disc will be sent with A&C R and the special sets, as well.
