You can contact the BFI below (There's a link to "Contact research viewing services) :

They also hold a nitrate of Clock Cleaners with a stock date of 1939, this could possibly have original titles.

Not to disturb the topic; but the BFI does hold several elements of interest, indeed; there are several nitrate reels of the earliest Aesop's Fables shorts from the Paul Terry era, possibly with their original theatrical titles.

I've sent an email to the BFI. Will await their response and maybe start a new topic when they do.

Sadly there's not much information accessible to the general public but if anyone knows how to get in touch with someone in the archive, it might be something worth looking into? (Unless David Gerstein is already on the case).


Not sure if it's just me, but the BFI links you posted here redirect to an error page with the message "Sorry, there's a problem. The site is still in development, and changes regularly, so please try again later if this error persists."

The film archive has several actual viewing elements of theatrical "Terry-Toons" as well, ready for show; and they were splendid enough to watch one of them and record a synopsis! Here is the case with 'Clowning', excluded from CBS' television schedule.

No wait, the copyright synopsis says that it is a part of the Mickey Mouse series?!
No wait, the reissue says that it was a part of the Goofy series?!

My statement in the middle is actually true; it was legitimately copyrighted as "A Walt Disney Mickey Mouse".

Yeah, "Goofy and Wilbur" is one of the Disney cartoons that I'd really, really like to see the original titles for.
