It seems that the Tex Avery MGM shorts (on Screwball Classics, Vol. 2) were also affected of badly-photoshopped titles like LT restorations on HMAX.



And of course problems with DVNR.

The DNR shorts come from a different batch than those with the Photoshopped titles, even though they were still outsourced.

In this case they just applied the auto fix, a color LUT and called it a day. It seems to me there's no manual work at all.

Oh here we go again with the de-grained footage and photoshopped titles. I sure hope 2/3 of this volume isn't remastered from Turner copies (U-Matic tapes, laserdisc, TV prints), as I have not received my copy yet. I felt like this was going to happen.

Here are some opening cards of Tom and Jerry cartoons prints from the 60s CBS package series. They are dubbed in Brasil, but some of them have the original harp musical notes intact.

I give up! I give up! My recreation of The Two Mousketeers title here is rubbish!









I have a feeling the font used in the original red bg title cards and the Shag font both look similar (or same).

MeTV, recently, leaked some new WB restorations of classic theatrical shorts yet to be released anywhere else, one of them being the MGM cartoon "Señor Droopy" (1949)!

(unfortunately they had to make a minor censor during the Wolf's smoking)

It looks the short either was intended for Tex Avery Screwball Classics Volume 2, or it was made for Volume 3 whenever that will be out.

It seems that MeTV will be our new temporary source of new cartoon shorts restorations until HBO Max puts more cartoons to its streaming servies or Warner Archive will release more Tex Avery Blu-rays!

As for Screwball Classics Volume 2, I said it before and I'll say it here too: the great colors of the restorations make up for all the Photoshop or DVNR problems the shorts have. Simple as fish.

Uh... you know... the colors of that "Señor Droopy" restoration really look terrible. Same with many of the restorations on Avery Volume 2 (though not all of them).

If only it was possible for companies to rethink their decision to make movies exclusive to streaming back to their initial supposed theatrican run - they'll have to look at how the situation is faring in countries and regions.

Wonder why it's impossible to screen "outdated" or "delayed" movies when the situation eases.
Changed the banner to match the upcoming anniversary better. Based on the logo switch ident featuring Bloo.
MeTV went off the air for about 15 minutes, right during one of the last Svengoolie segments up until it was time for the news (which I get in my area instead of Star Trek).
Well Bakugan was made in Canada too, so...
