Even though this already a well known event, i wanted to make a thread so i could generate some discussion about this topic.

For those not in the know, this vault fire destroyed many of MGM's original negatives, including the ones to the pre 1951 MGM cartoons. Since the originals were destroyed, many of the prints we see today of the cartoons are reissue prints, circa 1947-1958. The reissues changed some things, ranging from title cards, to gags, and in one instance, delete an entire scene.

I have more to elaborate upon, but i shall discuss once the conversation gets moving.

My personal synopsis: I'm not the most energetic or enthusiastic person you'll ever meet, but that doesn't mean I can't have fun. Generally, I'm pretty introverted and usually play video games, watch anime, and also study in the field of IT. I'm a huge music fanatic, as well. And I listen to pretty much everything except country. My favorites being trap, jazz, and metal.
