I'm currently watching the Treasure that came in the mail for me today - Walt Disney on the Front Lines. To put it bluntly, this is one of the greatest home videos, whether it be VHS or DVD, that I've been able to collect. Actually watching wartime/propaganda films that I've read about, but never got a chance to check out, is one of the best things about being a hardcore Disney fan.

Momotaro: Sacred Sailors/Spider and Tulip (Anime Limited UK edition, Region B locked)

Discs appear to be a straight port of the US Funimation edition, except for the region-locking, they start up with only the Shochiku and Funimation logos. Making up for the lack of on-disc extras, there's a great 127-page book on the film and its director Mitsuyo Seo included which seems exclusive to the UK edition.

Couldn't help but laugh when the restoration credits give "special thanks" to the Hearst Corporation for clearing this unauthorised cameo:

That's some nice screenshots of Africa you posted on the database btw! Interesting they chose to present it in a Movietone ratio, what ratio is My Pal Paul in?

Not an expert so I can't say for sure, but here's what "My Pal Paul" looks like.

So another Treasure came in the mail for me today. This time, it was Disney Rarities.

Granted, I've heard that the picture quality on this one is s****y, but at the same time the contents on this set are beyond compare. Unfortunately, the one that arrived in the mail had no tin......but it did have the paper card meant to go on the back of it, which I threw out when realizing there wasn't anything for it to stick to.

More than a week ago, I received an eBay gift card, and when I used it on Sunday, one of the two things I settled on buying with it was the first volume of The Complete Pluto.

I'm not really a big Pluto fan (he's my least favorite out of the Disney "fabulous five"...), and I'm not pleased that they decided to split his Treasures set in half as opposed to pulling a Goofy and releasing all his cartoons on one DVD, but at the same time I also wanted to build my Treasures collection up a bit further.
