Is anyone going to buy this set?

I sure did! I've just spent a bundle on Thunderbean releases, but from what I've read from many sources they are the source for fantastic early animations DVDs.

I bought this also, I am a big collector of 20's-40s cartoons, so Thunderbean is usually a must buy.

Steve, I got a question about this new release. Since you are planning to release "Mr. Bug Goes to Town" (which is still own by Paramount), will "Fleischer Rarities" have any cartoons that you had to license from Paramount to release (i.e. "Raggedy Ann and Andy")?

The question shouldn't be is anyone going to buy this, but is there anyone that won't be?
I'm in! Money sent.

The short answer is that the rarities set isn't licensed from Paramount; our licensing deal is new- and we do hope to release cartoons from Paramount eventually... 😉

Ordered! Had a blast watching the 3 special discs I got in the mail a few days ago! Absolutely loved the Koko short on the Ragdolls discs and am glad it'll appear on this set cleaned-up (and hopefully non-watermarked [tweety]).

I'm glad to have this version of the transfer, too, showing as it does this phase of sound-on-film technology and how it affected the aspect ratio for a time. Nice historical document.

I took a cursory glance at UCLA's film archive online catalog and noticed they seem to hold a picture negative and a (reissue?) track negative for this particular short:

Searching further, I noticed UCLA seem to hold negatives for quite a number of Red Seal distributed Out of the Inkwell shorts, not just the Paramount-owned Inkwell Imps. Is it possible these materials could be accessed someday or are there rights/access issues with the pre-Paramount Inkwell entries?

There are cursory Cartoons On Film plans for the pre-Imps.

Hello All,

I preordered this shortly after it was announced, but It's been awhile since I've done a preorder (I'm strictly a Fleischer Studios fan. Looking forward to the Mr Bug set) Does Steve still send out raw transfer discs before the final set has been completed? When I did the preorder for the Gulliver set, I did recieve dvd and HD dics of the raw transfer, then to my suprise, months later, recieved the final retail set in the mail (I was expecting only the raw transfer discs so I was pleasantly suprised) I only ask this as I have yet to receive anything, and a couple of my emails to Steve have gone unanswered (to be fair to Steve, he may not have received them, or is likely incredibly busy so no biggie) So, has anyone been sent anything regarding this set? Mail is kind of sketchy where I live (It's an apartment complex, mistakes get made when the front desk guy sorts mail, and I think some of my neighbors may not be the most honest folk, lol) and I wanted to be sure I didn't miss anything.

Thanks,
Mike

Steve does sometimes send out "sneak preview" discs for certain releases, but I don't believe this is one of them. You should, however, receive a bonus BD-R when the completed product is mailed out.

I don't think anything has been sent out. According to this week's "Thunderbean Thursday" post on Cartoon Research, work on the Fleischer set isn't yet completed. I have several "specials" discs and a few preorders awaiting shipment, so I wouldn't worry. To track Steve's progress, you can take a look at his Cartoon Research column, or his thread at the Blu-ray.com forum.

Please Steve, reply to my PM. I've yet to get some stuff from you, thanks
2017-05-07T02:16:46Z
Duck, I'm waiting on 10 orders (plus bonus stuff) going back to July of 2016 (Flip pre-order), so know you're not alone but in good company. And also, that I'm not worried . . . .

There are so many things in progress right now, and I get a ton of emails daily asking what is out and what isn't yet. I'm trying to respond to all, but really behind, plus there's thinsg people didn't get that are out- so- if you are missing something that you know is out, PLEASE send an email stating what is missing *with* your address... that way I can just print and get it out to you. There are three things I know I still owe IAD forum members currently, tow f the three long standing and finally all set.
