Amazon is having a shipping error on the new Universal set. Best cancel your order and get it elsewhere

Deep Discount is backordered. So, it might take some time to get a copy.

It seems that the set is finally shipping out after the initial error. Further images on the Blu Ray Forums  gives us a look at the title cards on the set. Another User  notes that the United Artists distributed shorts add a Universal logo to the beginning, though it isn't altered (I imagine it being similar to the AAP TV titles to Warner Shorts). Seems like a good buy to me, will get during the holiday season

Ordered mine from Deep Discount.

It really looks like the restorations have been fine-turned further than what was posted on YouTube.

Got the set yesterday. It's fine overall but I do have my gripes with it. My main issue is that these are just the same masters on that Arabic YT Channel. Minor DVNR here and there and Grain Scrubbing. Additionally, Most of the cartoons have mistakes in the titles. Most of it is just the Universal Logo from the B&W Lantz cartoons however 4 cartoons either have the wrong logo, or in the case of the UA shorts, have the Universal Logo (Under the Counter Spy in particular, has the wrong music).

Overall, this set is just fine. Better than that awful excuse for a DVD release.

My copy from Amazon arrived today. I won't be able to watch it until tonight but looking forward to it, especially since I'm not well-versed in Woody Woodpecker so most of these will be brand new to me.

Anyone found any DVNR on any of the shorts or have they been avoided?

I got my copy from Walmart over the weekend and I watched several cartoons. Or rather I left it on for a while as I kind of did other things. BUT... yes, I think I saw some very light DVNR. Mostly it seemed to appear in some places where the character lines were "thinned" but not always altogether missing. Also the image looks very clean and film grain has been softened, if not eliminated, to a weird sort of subtle digital haze/flicker. This was just my impression that there was definitely some DVNR going on there, I haven't gone back to do comparisons to confirm. But if so it was mostly tastefully done, if that's possible.
