Super Mario/ Captain N/ Zelda TV series preservations
Time

Check out my YouTube page, “SMBSS Restored- Legend of Zelda Fridays” and my friend Dylan’s page, “SMBSS Restored”. I tackle the Legend of Zelda episodes and he does the Super Mario Bros. episodes. He has uploaded all DVD episodes, restored with the original music, as well as the five non-Zelda related live-action portions of episodes that were altered or omitted for the DVD releases. I am working on finding and restoring the live-action Legend of Zelda-related episodes.

Eventually a DVD set will be made of all the restored episodes. Soon work will begin on Captain N, and then Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3!

Yes. I would love that. If you could upload all the uncut episodes you have, I can combine them with the DVD footage to restore them. And yeah, I don’t think the 2nd, SMB3 season had missing music, but they may have used some syndicated masters instead of NBC.

It's the full collection, Charlie Brown! AKA continuing the Warner Peanuts 1960s, 1970s "decade" collections
Time

Sounds good, but I don’t have a way to make HD or Blu Ray anything.

There’s a VHS of It Was My Best Birthday Ever, Charlie Brown sitting in a clamshell case for sale at a local used movie/book store in my area. They also have Pied Piper VHS in a clamshell case for sale. (At least they were there when I visited this past week.) I didn’t have my list of what I still needed on my phone, so I didn’t buy them at the time…

I have a Mitsubishi S-VHS VCR and the means to transfer the Birthday VHS to a DVD-R on a stand-alone DVD recorder/player. Or I could import it via firewire to a PC’s hard drive. Whether I have the technical skill to do the capture with as much quality as possible is another matter.

UPDATE: Got 'em both just now. 95 cents for Pied Piper and $3.95 for Best Birthday Ever.

I assume this would potentially be of better quality than a Video CD version of Birthday you mentioned?

I don’t know, I just figured since it was digital already, it would be better than VHS. Here’s a 2 min sample so maybe you can tell me how it compares when you get your VHS.

The dropbox folder seems empty. (But then maybe I’m doing something wrong.)

I own all of then TV specials on DVD except for the following:

A Charlie Brown Celebration VHS
It’s an Adventure, Charlie Brown VHS
Snoopy: The Musical VHS
It’s the Girl in the Red Truck, Charlie Brown VHS
You’re in the Super Bowl, Charlie Brown VHS
It Was My Best Birthday Ever, Charlie Brown VHS
It’s the Pied Piper, Charlie Brown DVD

Any help would be appreciated. I almost have a complete collection… Thanks!

I can get you these. In the process of converting Snoopy the Musical from PAL to NTSC. Then I’ll do Adventure and Celebration. When they’re done, I can get them to you. I have a VHS rip of Red Truck, a Video CD rip of Birthday, both in DVD format and Pied Piper on DVD. I can have those up for you this weekend, and the PAL to NTSC conversions as soon as they are done. Super Bowl is the only one that I have only on VHS, but my DVD recorder is broken right now.

Oh and yeah the Australian discs are region 4 PAL. They don’t play on my US DVD or Blu Ray players. But they play on my PC just fine. I did a sample of PAL to NTSC conversion and it looked perfect to me. I bought the Australian Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show instead of the US for two reasons: the US release is a DVD-R release anyway, so converting the episodes from PAL to NTSC and burning my own DVD-R discs wouldn’t be much different, and two: the fact that they are the only way to get Celebration, Adventure and Snoopy Musical on DVD! They are on the CB&S show set as bonus features, as well as ‘Good Man’.

Heroes webisodes not on DVD?
Time

As I’m catching up on Heroes Reborn, I’m reading about the webisodes from the original series. It seems not all of the webisodes have made it to DVD or Blu Ray. Why not? It seems that only Season 3 contains webisodes, the series “Going Postal”, “Hard Knox” and “Nowhere Man”. The other three webisode series, “Destiny”, “The Recruit” and “Slow Burn” have not been released, it seems.

Has anyone done a preservation of these, as well as the Target and other store exclusives?

Can someone make a DVD or BD of just the digital only extras from nust the Target TFA and all 7 Disney Movie Anywheres? That’s all I’m interested in. SD/HD doesn’t matter to me.

I already did that. The problem is where to host it.

Ah OK. I thought you were still gathering material for your 10 disc extras mega-set, or whatever. That’s just way too many discs for me. All of this would fit on one disc, correct?

The theatrical cut of The Podrace scene, 12 minutes

Conversations and Discoveries from the Inside, 27 minutes, prequel trilogy

Conversations and Discoveries from the Inside, 39 minutes, original trilogy

Over 20 minutes of TFA Target-exclusive bonus content

That’s all. Are there any itunes/ Google/ whatever non-Target TFA exclusives?

Episode VII : <strong>The Force Awakens</strong> - film and fan art
Time

I want a DVD cover that matches up to the old DVDs. I like to take the DVD out of the BD case and put it in its own DVD case. Anyway, I’d like a TFA cover that mmatchs the 1-6 DVDs with a large “VII” behind “Star Wars” and small print “The Force Awakens” underneath. You know, like this:

How the hell do you post images here now?

STAR WARS: EP IV 2004 <strong>REVISITED</strong> ADYWAN *<em>720p HD VERSION NOW IN PRODUCTION</em>
Time

I’ve never heard anyone in the US say arse, ever. I kicked Fred in the ass for being an ass while riding his (jack)ass while watching Jackass. Arse sounds dumb. Do you pronounce the “r”?

From wikipedia:

Arse
Arse or ARSE may refer to:

Arse, British English for the buttocks (“ass” in US English)

Arse (district), a district in the South Tapanuli Regency, North Sumatra province, Sumatra, Indonesia

Arylsulfatase E, an arylsulfatase gene
Animal Research – Scientific and Experimental, a fictional animal research centre in the book The Plague Dogs

Has anyone ever done a theatrical cut of The Explorers (River Phoenix/ Ethan Hawke)?
Time

Well that’s pretty awesome (but not about the credits), don’t think a lot of us USA folk knew that. I will have to check the Netflix version. Been meaning to get a new Netflix account anyway. If everthing is good, someone can capture the ending off of Netflix and upscale it to match your recording. Are there any commercials or other edits you know of on this TV version?

The 80s UK home video release is the same as the theatrical cut, with the scene of Wolfgang and Ben towards the beginning. I recorded this version in HD (1080) from Channel 4 during Xmas 2015. The closing credits featuring Robert Picado’s stand up routine have been time-compressed and cut down.

So it would appear that the version you recorded is 99% the US theatrical cut (minus the credits). I guess this version is also on Netflix. Hopefully the Netflix version has the correct credits, and this scene (taken from Wikipedia):

Originally before the end credits, in the theatrical cut, the alien Wak “broke the fourth wall” and remarked on people who were still in the theater from the smell of popcorn. In the re-edited home video version, he just tells another joke before it cuts to the closing credits.

So it seems no directors cut is possible, but, in theory, a seamless-branching Blu Ray can be created (if the correct credits/ talk to audience scene(s) are found/ upscaled, with four cuts of the film:

  1. US theatrical cut (Two scenes not in previous US video releases: where Wolfgang has an encounter with Steve Jackson’s gang of bullies and a brief bit where the boys chase the Tilt-a-Whirl ride after they push it up a hill. Without the brief sequence at the end where Ben daydreams about the Thunder Road ship, and with the correct 4th wall/ credits scenes.)

  2. US home video cut (opposite of the above)

  3. UK cut (same as US theatrical, except 4th wall scene and credits, I think)

  4. Extended cut (all of the scenes restored, probably even the 4th wall thing AND the replacement joke)
