  1. Sadly it is the only way to watch most classic cartoons these days.
  2. I should of called myself Carryonfan, as I am a huge fan of the Carry on series. Even though Carry on Cowboy sadly was the latest one TCM aired. It's far from the best of the series Carry on Jack and Carry on Cleo are my favs. But it's really hard to pick out bad one in the earlier films as there is are so many excellent ones. Take the very 1st Carry On Sergeant, when I 1st saw William Hartnell outside of his more famous role to American fans as the very 1st Doctor in Doctor Who. I was surprised when I checked out imdb and found Mr. Hartnell had done many such films where he played a Sgt.
  3. Add me to the list to those who want to see cartoon alley back. But I have to add this I have Leonard Maltin's Book of Mice and Magic which is about animation here in America and the number of cartoons that have not been seen any where in years is a shock to say the least.
  4. What is the real shame is Warner has the rights to all of the Peanuts specials, and movies. They released most of them then stopped. I did a little checking and unless you want to get in to stuff I shouldn't talk about here. This special isn't available any where expect as a very expensive VHS copy. Which is a total shame.
  5. What we really should be talking about are those early Simpsons shorts that originally aired on the Tracy Ullman Show. They can be found online but I won't say where due to copyright. Which I find really strange look the Simpsons has been on the air for decades. But unless you can find a copy online you just don't see those shorts any where.
  6. One I only see once Mission Stardust
  7. I was watching TCM over this weekend when the host mentioned Dr. Strangelove. But when they also mentioned it was a comedy...****!!!! Look I have seen Dr. Strangelove before and I always considered it a drama. I find abosultely no laughs in the film period. What do you think of this slip of the lip.
  8. Thankfully most of their films are on DVD
  9. First of all I want to personally thank TCM for finally carrying at least 4 'Carry On' films on Sept 16. To me the best of them are Carry on Sergeant and Carry on Nurse. But these films as well as the other 2 have a great story, and lots of good laughs. If you haven't seen them before I beg of you to check them out...you will have a really good time.

    Bob Hope

    I call it good news Cancel My Reservation only recently came out on DVD

    Bob Hope

    Bob Hope did many, many films I just plain love. But for years my biggest complaint was a film I had not seen in years. One called Cancel my Reservation, which was a comedy/mystery film he did, I swear I had not seen that film in over 17 years, simply because no one plays it. Then just the other day I was checking out Movies Unlimited http://www.moviesunlimited.com/musite/product.asp?sku=D82686++ and to my surprise that film is finally on DVD. What a surprise!!!
  12. I would swear like the rest of you I had seen every Kettle film ever made and have the same on DVD. Then I heard about the brand new Fred MacMurray release Murder He Says, I seen it before and it's not a half bad film. But when I was checking out this http://www.moviesunlimited.com/musite/product.asp?sku=D38050 I found out Feudin', Fussin' and Fightin' 1948 which is the 2nd film on the disc. Which as it turns out is a lost Kettle film made between The Egg and I and the very 1st Kettle film. Frankly I never heard of it before and I already got my pre order in. I can't wait to see this lost gem
  13. Or how about old school anime. Like the very 1st bit of it to ever hit the shores of America. Pinocchio in Outer Space, which according to everything I read was the 1st one.
  14. And before any body says anything Mickey Rooney himself has said this in more than 1 interview, personally I heard him say it at least 3 times on different talk shows. It was during the shooting of A Midsummers Night Dream Mickey Rooney actually broke his leg.
  15. The Unknown Chaplin, the one about Charlie Chaplin is an amazing documentary and I have not seen it in years.
  16. Just saw the first episode, Peepshow Pioneers. What can I say utterly fascinating, I can't believe an hour went that fast. Throughly entertaining and totally enjoyable.
  17. Atlantis is an amazing movie even by today's standards.

    Fancy Pants

    I was watching Fancy Pants recently (it was on DVD) when I had a question. We all know Lucy Ball isn't that great singer. But does anyone here know who sang for her in the film?
  19. I would love to see them play Blondie, so many of them have not been seen in many years
  20. This goes way back to 1976 - 77 I recall both Bob Hope and Bing Crosby being on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. Believe it or not they were talking about The Road to Tomorrow, a brand new Road film they were actually planning on doing with not only each other, but George Burns and John Wayne was to be in the film as well. It was only because of the death of Bing Crosby that the film wasn't made.
  21. I actually have seen both the movie and the special. The one thing I can say about both they are rather unique in their own ways. Also both are quite excellent.
  22. I think the real is answer is like most things that get us talking is best left to your own imagination. I don't really think the set designer made the Krell world for the Krell's. But instead made it work for the actors.
  23. I hate to say The Producers I love the original film with Zero Mostel and Gene Wilder, but that remake was horrible.
  24. I like to pass along what I know of the actual discovery of Stagecoach. It seems John Ford gave John Wayne a copy of the film and the Wayne family kept it for years. It wasn't until an AFI affair where John Wayne was at that not only did he hear the film was lost, and that he had the only surviving copy. True story as far as I know, I heard John Wayne say that on The Tonight Show many many years ago.
  25. This strange bit of trivia goes way back to the silent era, back when Walt Disney made a series of cartoons with a character called Oswald the Lucky Rabbit for Universal. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oswald_the_Lucky_Rabbit In short Disney always felt Oswald, a character he created had been stolen from him. Then in February 2006, a number of minor assets including the rights to Oswald were acquired by the Walt Disney Company from NBC Universal as part of a deal that sent sportscaster Al Michaels from Disney?s ABC and ESPN to NBC Sports. At the time, ABC had lost its contract for NF
