Gulliver's Travels HD transfer

For a short period of time, you can order a special Gulliver's Travels set from Thunderbean Animation (purveyors of sets seen more in the '43 blog, like the great Private Snafu set).
The new transfer of a 35mm IB Technicolor print is to be sent on DVD, with an HD file on another disc (the goal being to fund the transfer itself, so keep in mind the discs won't be sent out immediately, but necessarily entail lag time to create the transfer and then the disc; think of it as a little more like Kickstarter than like Best Buy). It should be well worth the money ($14 plus shipping).

Ugh, the Blu-Ray Choice is Sniffles? (BluRays of 1939 v2)

So, a new Blu-Ray with an incredibly unwieldly title has been announced; the Looney Tunes Mouse Chronicles The Chuck Jones Collection. We may never know if it's based on the novel by Sapphire. Nonetheless, it shall contain Naughty but Mice, Little Brother Rat, and Sniffles and the Bookworm, making it on topic here. There are some great things about Sniffles cartoons, but Sniffles isn't one of them. One of the early reviews on Amazon says the bonus cartoons have been "reviled"; I think it's more technically true of the disc of Sniffles...

Gulliver Valentine's Day Cards

Cartoon Brew pointed out some Gulliver's Travels Valentine's Day cards on eBay. I thought I had posted a couple of these, but a quick search didn't turn them up on the blog they're probably just sitting in a folder on my computer), so here they are.

Don't Forget 1935

The Cartoons of 1943 blog is primarily finished; on to 1935 (again, soon).

Also, Paul Etcheverry posted about the screen cap vid form this blog; which reminds me I need to assemble one for '43.


Also I can't remember if I set up a Google alert for '43 or '35...
