YAY for DVDs!

Posted: February 26, 2009

Busy, busy, busy!

I've got some great news! It seems like they will be releasing the Chuck Jones Tom and Jerry's on DVD! I just got wind of it this morning. According to TV Shows on DVD:
On June 23rd (a week after the single-disc title is available), Warner will release Tom and Jerry - The Chuck Jones Collection. This 2-DVD set running 216 minutes will include 34 shorts, remastered for this package. Video will be in the original 1.33:1 aspect ratio, with English audio. In addition to the shorts, listed below, there will be two new Bonus Documentaries titled "Tom and Jerry...and Chuck" and "Chuck Jones: Memories of a Childhood". Cost is just $26.99 SRP.

Many thanks to William and a few others for letting us know about this.

Speaking of TV Shows on DVD, they made another announcement for a new Tom and Jerry DVD: TOM AND JERRY'S GREATEST CHASES VOLUME 2. This is being released JUNE 16, 2009. I'm not entirely sure as to the purpose of this release as the Spotlight Collections pretty much took care of the cartoons (with the exception of I believe Mouse Cleaning).

Tom and Jerry Greatest Chases Volume 2 features 14 shorts directed by Hanna-Barbera that were originally released between 1943 and 1951. Two featured shorts, including Mouse Trouble (originally released in 1944) and Quiet Please! (originally released in 1945) became Oscar® winners for Best Short Subject, Cartoons in 1945 and 1946, respectively. Other shorts featured on the DVD include Sufferin' Cats!, Baby Puss, The Million Dollar Cat, The Bodyguard, Flirty Birdy, Cat Fishin', The Invisible Mouse, Heavenly Puss, Jerry and the Goldfish, Cue Ball Cat, Slicked-up Pup and Jerry's Cousin.

More info on this release can be found here at TV Shows on DVD

Aside from the initial announcement in January I've not heard anything new about the new Tom and Jerry movie. So if anyone at the WB that visits this site and can share some more information about the movie the fans would love to know more about this upcoming movie. :-]
