No need for that since we have the laserdisc. At this point people should work uncensoring the blu ray or getting a 35mm scan.

The blu ray footage edited to fix censorship and made to fit the audio tracks of the version I released would be a good project someone can work on now. Then people can have a choice between the laserdisc image and the HD blu ray one while still retaining full video, original audio, and Deems Taylor’s voice.

I’ve actually done an uncensored version of either the DVD or Blu-Ray version.

You have? Share the love then! The only one I’ve seen is the uncensored DVD on myspleen and that crashes on VLC (therefore you have the run the vob files directly).

Might as well. I should warn you, though, it’s an MP4 file, whereas most projects on here are MKV files.

While we are waiting for the ultimate version, I worked on it for the past two weeks or so and have made my own restoration of the 1990 CAV LaserDisc version of Fantasia for those that are interested. This obviously won’t beat what poita is working on, but should be pretty decent to have while waiting. Its funny how we went for years without much for Fantasia restoration, and suddenly have two released on the same week almost at the same time lol

Nice. I was going to make an uncensored version of that same version, using the 1991 VHS version of the movie.

Poita hasn’t been active on this site in 9 months because he’s focusing on actually working on his projects, so it could be a while before he gives updates for any of them.

Well, that could explain why he hasn’t responded to my private message about this project. Oh, well, glad to know he’s working hard on it.

Help: looking for... Fantasia (original 1940 general release version)
Time

Fantasia is scheduled to be released on DVD and Blu-Ray as part of Disney’s Signature Collection sometime this year. It doesn’t matter if the Pastoral Symphony segment is censored, as I plan to do my own reconstruction of the original roadshow version of the movie. All I’m hoping for this release is that it includes the original Deems Taylor monologues, which I hope has been re-discovered by now.

I might include a little tribute to him in my Series 3 preservation.

Oh, no. Well, I’m sure every Thomas fan will miss him. Myself included.

Info: article on censoring Tom And Jerry
Time

Censoring of Tom and Jerry was the reason why I started rebelling against the censors in the first place. I’ve been planning this civil rebellion for about a couple years now, but I declared war on censoring animation and illustrated books all the way back in 2015. Censoring animation was wrong then and is wrong today. By censoring their cartoons, these greedy corporations are rewriting history. I am sick and tired of it and everyone else in America should, too. Uncensored must dominate America’s home media, period.

Idea & Help Wanted: 'Bob the Builder' - UK Preservation
Time

A very exciting update on this topic. Almost every episode of Bob the Builder (1998-2011) is available on CBS All Access in their original aspect ratio. The only exception is Series 1, which is cropped to widescreen. Unfortunately, the shorts are not included, so the shorts will be excluded from my preservation. This may cost me money to preserve one episode from Series 5, as well as every episode from the following series, but I’ll hold out somehow.

Dragon Ball GT
Time

Just to update on Dragon Ball Revised, I now have an idea to do two different versions of Chapter 194 as well. The Director’s Cut of Chapter 194 will be an alternate ending to the manga. The reason why I intend on doing a Director’s Cut of Chapter 194 as well as 519 is because the “Z” portion of the manga gets way too much attention. It’s almost as if people think it’s the only portion of the story. This annoyance has pretty much persuaded me to do a Director’s Cut of Chapter 194 as well as 519. I’ll let everyone know once I start working on this project.

Dragon Ball GT
Time

I actually intend on making my own recreation of the Dragon Ball manga called Dragon Ball Revised. It’ll basically be all 519 chapters (and 1 side story) of the original version, but with an additional 101 chapters based on Dragon Ball GT. Also, the final chapter of the original version, Chapter 519, will have two different versions. The first version will be exactly how it was in the original manga, where it ends there. The other version, which I’m calling the “Director’s Cut”, will change the ending narration to that of the chapter’s anime counterpart, the final episode of Dragon Ball Z, and therefore, lead to the additional 101 chapters, based on Dragon Ball GT. The process of Dragon Ball Revised (at least for the first 519 chapters and side story) should go something like this:

Step 1: I copy each page of a chapter by hand.
Step 2: I scan my versions of each page.
Step 3: I color each page on GIMP, using the colors of the anime for reference.
Step 4: I use Comic Life 3 to add narrations, dialogue, etc.

I don’t know how I’ll do the additional 101 chapters, but I’ll let everyone know as soon as I know.

Dragon Ball Revised will be available in both Japanese and English. I don’t know when I’ll get around to it, but I’ll let everyone know once I get there.

Info Wanted: Fantasia 1990 - Re-release and VHS Version Comparison
Time

TonyWDA said:

Nothing to worry about. The Fantasia on the 1990 reissue and 1991 VHS releases are one and the same, both running at about 119 minutes. Unless the theatrical reissue prints were played at 25fps instead of the intended 24, I’m not sure why someone would note that they ran 5 minutes faster than the VHS, because they most certainty did not. Disney, too, noted this on their anthology box set from 2000, and it is simply not correct.

Okay, thanks for the information.
