Just a q... we all know the original title to "A Wild Hare" DOES exist, since TNT aired it on its "What's Up, Doc?" special so long ago. But every print since is still the Blue Ribbon cartoon... including the Irreverent Imagination doc on the Golden Collection.

Why do they keep airing the BR version? Is it because they have easier access to it, or something else?

I believe it's because the original print came from a private collector. Turner had to pay a royalty to air it on the special, and to use it on GAOLT Vol. 4.
I hope Time Warner can Strike a deal with the Private Collector for a Future DVD (I imagine the Orginal Print of "A Wild Hare" should be a little easier to secure rights to than the "Merry go Round Broke Down"). But Restortaion would still have to occur)

Yeah, whenever "A Wild Hare" ends up on DVD, I'd expect it to be the original version.

Today, variety in my country's Cartoon Network's schedule has died.
I'm Planning to make a New Qubo schedule With Several New and Returning Shows (With one of them being Jacob Two-Two), No Paid Programming and the Return of the 4 hour Marathons.
Today marks the 10th Year Anniversary of Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated and the 7th Year Anniversary of its series finale. It ended up becoming my favorite adaptation of the Scooby-Doo Franchise and found out about Lewis Black by name (I had heard his voice in some earlier shows).
