Idea & Help Wanted: for a 'The Bear Who Slept Through Christmas' (1973) edit
Time

Nichole said:

I have seen the deleated church scene, it was my favorite scene and this was my favorite Christmas movie. I only wish I had a copy for you to do your project with. My mom recorded the movie on VHS from TV but that copy of it, even if it could be found, would be in pretty poor condition. If you ever find what you are looking for to finish this project, I would love to obtain a copy of it from you. Best Wishes.

I know this is an old post but wanted to update. I did find my mom’s old VHS tape. She had taped it back in like 1984/85 on a tape full of Christmas specials she had made for us when we were kids. It is in pretty bad shape but I ripped it (no professional equipment). I’ll get it uploaded soon if interested.

I still wish I could find a decent quality copy of these scenes at least in order to incorporate into an edit or something like that. Regardless, at least I found this “extended version” - albeit in pretty bad quality.

Help: Looking for... The Hungry Hobos (Previously "Lost" Disney Short)
Time

Well, I guess I’m blind today. I looked all over and couldn’t find it. I searched again today and found someone uploaded it to YouTube. I would still like to do a proper direct rip of my own from the digital download/stream when I get the Snow White Signature Collection, but at least I can check it out in the meantime.

Help: Looking for... The Hungry Hobos (Previously "Lost" Disney Short)
Time

Hello,

Has anyone managed to preserve the Oswald The Lucky Rabbit short, “The Hungry Hobos”? It was thought lost but was rediscovered a few years ago. Disney included it as a digital exclusive with the Signature Collection BR of Snow White. It doesn’t appear it’s been made available anywhere else. I am ordering that release today just to see it, as I am a huge fan of Disney’s early shorts. However, I would love to have an offline copy as well, since I know these digital exclusives can “disappear” at any time.

If anyone knows of a preservation OR how I could preserve it myself if not, I would greatly appreciate any insight.

Thanks for your time!

Info: Recommended Editions of Disney Animated (and Partially Animated) Features
Time

Hello,

First of all, thanks for all the amazing info in this thread. I’m trying to find the most accurate/best version of The Little Mermaid. Just curious if anyone has any recommendations on what I should look for? I’m interested in the best unaltered version available. Like most Disney releases, I assume none is perfect, but I certainly welcome any suggestions or recommendations.

Thanks for your time!
Zack

The Little Mermaid (1989) - 35 mm (Released)
Time

I would be happy to contribute to ANY future Disney preservation projects. Been here since 2003 but away recently. Preserving these films properly is essential in my opinion. Disney has been one of (if not THE) worst at truly preserving their titles in their original form.

Additionally, if there is ANY way to get hold of this, I would greatly appreciate it. Of all the Disney “renaissance” this one holds a particular sentimental value to me.

Thanks so much for reading.

I haven't been able to visit OT.com much in recent years, but I just found this fan edit and had to login to say:

THANK YOU TO ALL INVOLVED.

Seriously, this is absolutely amazing. The time, love and dedication you've invested to create this is impressive beyond words. I watched this last night and it took my breath away. 

I just want to say you have my deepest gratitude.

Warmest Regards,

Zack

Info Wanted: what is the best anamorphic preservation of the Original Trilogy?
Time

Hey everyone,

I was out of town unexpectedly but was able to grab the suggested versions. Took them on the trip and they were great.

I'm going to watch Star Wars with our son next week (he's six and has never seen it). Cannot wait.

And yes, the screen is 121"...inches, not feet! :)

Thanks again for the wonderful suggestions. You're all terrific.

Best Regards,
Zack
