I truly enjoyed this film last night. So glad they aired it. It's not something I would have sought out, but it was just so darned cute! Thanks, TCM. :)

According to the programming schedule section of this site, the movie was set to be part of Turner Classic Movies' programming again on the Sunday of June 14th of the current calendar year between the Central times of 7:00 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. (I had also noticed "Mr. Deeds Goes to Town" was listed as the movie to be broadcast afterwards).

Hi there,

I missed the airing of the original Mr. Bug Goes To Town back in October. Did anybody happen to record it and can share? I have a couple of different DVD copies that are pretty lackluster prints. I'd love to see the remastered version with the original credits of this great, underrated film.

The other stuff aired that night, I'd love to see as well, including those old silent short cartoons and the restored Gulliver's Travels.

If anybody has any of this that they can share, or if there's any news of TCM re-airing this stuff in the future, please let me know! Thanks a million!
