Friends, I could use some help. I’ve noted before how often the closing of these videos doesn’t have the right audio. I’ve found, I think, that none of the versions of “The Mummy Strikes,” which I’m working on this week, has the right audio. Each of them has a different issue. There’s more info and a video here:
If you have a copy of this particular short that has different closing music, please let me know on Twitter by replying to this tweet: https://twitter.com/davextreme/status/891340819076198400
I have some of these cartoons from a Greek Public Domain VHS from the 80s that I have transferred to DVD. I checked there for that ending. It contains the same ending with Warner. The only difference is that the final card appears before the end of the horn line, but it’s obvious from the merging point that it doesn’t belong to the original form of the film, there are some white spots and the black after the fade-out of the main cartoon jumps to dark blue after that point.
I also checked for the line “for women” at “Superman” that is mentioned by some users. My copy doesn’t contain it either.
I think that you have done a great job restoring these cartoons to their original form! I wonder why their official release by Warner doesn’t have them fully restored. I 've found your restorations only at youtube. Unfortunately, I haven’t managed to find a download link for a better quality of the files yet - neither the links for the m4v files that exist, as you said, at your site. Is it something I 'm doing wrong?
