Now that all the copies have been sent on the last special disc (there were two with other discs that took a few days to get out), it's time for another set (there's a handful of you that convinced me to do this one).

First, thanks for the feedback, IAD folks, and continued support of these collections. You folks, the animation community, have really made this little company survive- these sets are all a sort of 'Thank-you' without going broke doing so- and they also allow a lot of things to be transferred and available that otherwise may not be. From the responses here and through email, the features wins out!

The next question is what other shorts will be included, so I'd like to do a popular vote to include 5 other shorts, either related to the feature or unrelated. Put in your vote! Send me suggestions!


This offer is for a 'special' Blu-ray/DVD combo set (BDR, DVDR) featuring a well-loved animated feature. It is available to members of the IAD forum only. The transfer will be from a 35mm in IB Technicolor print, in overall excellent shape. It's the best I've ever seen on this title, and will be presented unchanged from it's theatrical presentation- no scrubbed out details or fixes, no music changes or fixes; just as it was made. We'll include 5 bonus cartoons on the set (to be decided by the IAD forum!). If able, I'll be transferring the original title sequence from a blu-track 16mm IB Technicolor print as well.

The set will be limited to 65 copies, and is available for one week only (though July 26th). It's $14.95 plus $2 postage, $6 postage for orders outside the US.

The orders are set up the usual way, through Paypal only. Paypal address is steves@thunderbeananimation.com

Thanks everyone!

Payment sent (Though the wording may be confusing at first). You're really burning a hole in my wallet with all these bonus discs.

Money sent...have to admit I was a LITTLE unsure what to post in the comment box on PAYPAL...so I cut and pasted "This offer is for a 'special' Blu-ray/DVD combo set (BDR, DVDR) featuring a well-loved animated feature."
Hope that's clear enough!!
Thanks. Can't wait.

Well-loved animated feature, huh? There's so many films to choose from and so many decades, that it could be anything. That also makes it harder for me to choose shorts to go along with it. Maybe if you provide a few small hints in the next few days.

Mr. Stanchfield has stated in the other thread that the 35mm IB Tech is from the 60s, in addition to stating here that the original title sequence might come from a blu-track 16mm IB Tech print.

This is a hint in there. There's a series of shorts that have one of the characters from the film (some say he really is the main character). He was always my favorite character in the film, even though he's technically the side kick. He shows up in another animated feature as well.

Mickey Mouse? If so, then it's either FANTASIA or FUN AND FANCY FREE.

This character also occasionally was the "substitute host" of a long-running TV show.

Pinocchio! (The answer, after all, must be Jiminy Cricket.)

Which one, Ludwig Von Drake or Jiminy Cricket?

If it IS a Disney feature (Pinocchio Fantasia or Fun and Fancy Free). You could include some of the I'm No Fool educational shorts.



It may not even be Disney at all, so who knows?

If its a disney release

The Mad Scientist in 1080!!!!

Also maybe one of Micky's best educational shorts

include something a bit risqué' for a disney short.

Just make sure the added tunes really take advantage of the detail that can be appreciated in HD. Something SPACE related!



If its Fleisher cartoon heres a list of my 5 vote

A couple more of the Stereoscopic or multiple layered Popeyes in 1080, or a couple that would REALLY lend themselves to HD

Minnie The Moocher and The old man In The MTN in 1080

or some of the Fleischers that would REALLY "pop" in High Def that have never had the chance to really be appreciated. Something fast paced and lots of beautiful background work and special effects.

I don't know, maybe a couple SUPERMAN toons if you have any 35MM transfers or even 16 that would ace any of the commercial releases. Even unrestored, a couple of those in HD would be awesome!

You are correct Deven. And I think they don't suffer from the BIG HEAD syndrome like the first disk items.

I vote for the extra cartoons ( at least one of them) to be the Merrie Melodies Foxy cartoons;

"Smile, Darn Ya, Smile!"
"Lady, Play Your Mandolin!"
"One More Time"

These are my favorite PD tunes and would love to have them in HD.

If we're talking Disney, any shorts at all that weren't on the Treasures sets would be just sensationally good. Of course, whatever you choose will be greatly appreciated!

I would like them to make a collection of pre-1943 black & white Looney Tunes remastered in HD as well. Mainly the ones not released on the Golden Collections and Platinum Collections. Those are my personal favorites of the Looney Tunes library.
