I really hope they go back and fix these when/if they're put out on hard media but that's probably false hope.



And in two weeks, a bunch of 50s and 60s shorts, and of the middle of it all Bingo Crosbyana!


What "Bingo Crosbyana"?

I don't know if someone already pointed this out here, but when MeTV aired "Daredevil Droopy", it seemed like they aired an earlier restored version using the censored print with a overly blue color correction and DVNR. It seems like this one of the other cartoons that were restored by the HBO Max team. Why they gave/used a inferior version instead editing the WA restoration beats me.

Loved the black&whites, saw the Bugs title goof, kinda hard to miss. It is getting a little odd though with all the Deitch (and Jones) Tom & Jerry’s. Can they not use the classic HB Tom & Jerry’s? Why would they choose these others so many times in a row? I know they have their fans, but they’re kinda terrible. Although I got some quirky amusement out of Dickie Moe. For Looney Toons we’re seeing everything from Beans to Cool Cat but T&J is all Deitch, one wonders what gives?

They showed "Cat's Concerto" (1947) on the second preview show and "The Dog House" (1952) in the second episode. Plus, "The Flying Cat" (1952) will be airing tomorrow.

You're right and I remember both now. It's still a lot of Deitch cartoons. It's like promising a Three Stooges marathon and running all the Joe Besser shorts.

Why no parentheses with numbers immediately after "BINGO CROSBYANA" and "A BROKEN LEGHORN"?

The plane-themed show and shout out to Avery was nice. (How can a show, even with its dumb wraparounds, that calls viewers attention to "the brilliant mind of Tex Avery" in the ads be a bad thing?) All were HD remastered versions, The Jet Cage was one of those HBO Max jobs with the stupid jump cut between the concentric rings and the credits. And everything was uncensored.

Very interested to see if Hobo Bobo will air restored as it's most likely gonna end up on HBO Max eventually. Also, according to Jerry Beck, an original nitrate camera neg exists of it, so we would see the original titles for it!

Just watching my DVR of this morning. This week they've added "Quick Clips", at least during the Popeye hour. Just short segments of cartoons in a faux vintage TV bezel. But they're not as "quick" as one might think, running like a minute and a half or longer. At 3-4 per hour I'm not sure if these have cost us a full cartoon or not, but whatever.

How about that gorgeous print of Poor Cinderella? Looks a lot like the one Olive released on blu-ray? How did that happen?

Hey, Mario500, can you please actually type a proper response from this point on if you have something to say?

I don’t remember these cartoons ever been censored on my local tv channels or cable channels back in the day. What was censored before?

The quick clips were also on "Tom and Jerry" and "Bugs Bunny". Also, the print of "The Wayward Pups" (1937) was full of noticeable DVNR and I THINK one of those recent doctored title cards.

It's cool to see they will be showing a "A Broken Leghorn". That was one of the few Foghorn shorts they would never show on Boomerang.

And this week, it looks like they will be showing "Moby Duck," the first Speedy short on MeTV, and the first time a Speedy short aired in the US since 2016 (Boomerang randomly aired a couple of them that year).
