Last week there were three animated shorts that didn't appear in the

online schedule: "Mutts about Racing" (1958) with Droopy; "Calypso Cat,"

1962, Tom and Jerry; and "Rock-a-Bye Bear," 1953, with Barney Bear.


The following lists the gaps of 10 or more minutes between movies, as

computed by subtracting run times from allotted times of the movies. The

scheduled shorts are in all caps. Times are Eastern.

If you click on "Month Schedule" at the top of this page, you can find short films listed through Thursday, the 11th. A new window will pop up with the whole month's schedule; do a search using "short film". They even added a Tex Avery cartoon, "Ghost wanted", for this Friday (5th).

Thanks for that list. I got lucky on the Charley Chase, since the buffer on my hard drive machine caught what I didn't know about in advance. My brain and body have been on overload from 4 days+ of the Gene Autry marathon. I now only need 3 of his movies, and at least one will be shown in October (on Westerns Channel, of course).


Anyway, back to the "reel" subject. It's kinda maddening the way the B/W vs C listings have gone to the dog. Many more wrong than right (especially with movies TCM is premiering - and the designations will probably remain now they've been assigned). Yeesh!


Which leads to: "OUT WHERE THE STARS BEGIN" on Saturday morning should be a real treat. I checked IMDB the other day (when I saw it listed), and they say it has brilliant color footage (backstage type, etc.) of lots of WB scenes, sets, costumes, etc., we've always known only in B/W.

I would love to see TCM give us a full and accurate schedule of upcoming shorts. Anticipation of upcoming shorts is a major factor in the overall viewing experiance. The situation where there is 'potluck' in when the shorts appear should be a thing of the past.

Here is tomorow's schedule (Friday 10/05/06)and there is three twenty + minute breaks in between features.


7:38am-8am (22 min.gap)

9:35am-10am (25 min.gap)

9:22pm- 9:45pm (23 min.gap)


As of this writing, TCM has no listings for these time slots and there's a very good chance, a Charley Chase comedy short will may pop up, so set your recorders for these times my friends.

For the lucky members who read this forum and live in the Los Angeles area......

"A Tribute to Charley Chase" will take place on Friday October 19th. at 7PM in Tarzana. The evening will feature films from Chase's career from 1924 thru 1940. Chase collectors will be displaying rare memorabilia, posters, lobby cards, scripts and photos and memories. The film program will feature some rare Chase films that aren't available on video. The evening is to benefit Actors For Autism, an organization dedicated to children achieving their dreams.


Reservations are required and can be made at 818-705-1600. A great opportunity to see classic Charley Chase on the big screen and to meet other Charley Chase fans.

There are two slots this morning (Oct 6th) .....


7:37 was "Out Where the Stars Begin," which was listed in the schedule and about which I already wrote: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0293892/fullcredits#cast

There is an extensive cast listing there, but not a word about the teenage tour guide. He looks familiar, but can anyone give his name?


No shorts (just promos, etc.) after "To Be or Not to Be."

What about 9:22 last night? Anything?

Nope, nothing last night during the 9:22pm slot, but I was surprised that TCM didn't show any shorts during those three 20 plus minute gaps yesterday.I just hope that the Charley Chase shorts will show upon the online schedule in the coming days and weeks, since I'm a huge Chase fan and getting every single short is very important to me, since Hallmark has no plans on releasing the Chase talkies on home video.

Seriously...have you ever really stopped to think that your constant announcing that you are recording and collecting TCM's material probably caused the network to pull the plug on the MGMWBRKO postings we had hear, huh? I have written this before, but why don't you get it? If you are doing it-KEEP IT TO YOURSELF!!! WHY (WHY) do you need to announce it to the world that you are COLLECTING the films??? Have you any idea how much the copyright owners do NOT like to hear it? The very people who "worshiped" MGMWBRKO are probably the ones that forced him/her to go BYE-BYE. I thought this forum was to discuss the shorts themselves...not become an unofficial trading post.

But since VCRs have been in common public usage for at least 25 years now, and TIVO, DVR and DVD technology have been in full swing for at least five or more, don't you think that someone would have to have been living on another planet not to realize what's going on?


BTW: It's mentioned way down the thread, but just for the record, Charley Chase in Skip the Maloo! (1931) followed Heroes Island.


After all this blood, sweat and tears trying to nail these Roach shorts, no doubt Hallmark will some day issue a nicely packaged DVD "Collectors Box Set" of all of them, so all of this turmoil will have been unnecessary. Heh Heh.

I don't know if this is a factor in why the shorts are being listed at least in part in TCM's schedules and also in cable guides, but I've also noticed that short programs that are less than 30 minutes are also being listed on the TV Guide for Charter Cable for other channels as well. I've noticed it on other movie channels, along with the Disney channel, and also in pre-game and post-game shows for sports on different channels. It could be that the sources for all channels have been improved in TV listings to where they are more accurate for short programs, not just for TCM, but for other channels as well.
