But anyway, I think we all need to remember that the double dipping seems to be minimal, and is really only a problem for those of us who collect all of the sets. There is one from Mickey In Color Vol. 1, one from Mickey in BW Vol. 1, and 2 from the Front Lines treasure included on Pluto volume 1. So if we've bought all of those, we're getting them again; but if there are Pluto fans out there who have been waiting for a Treasure or two just like this, the shorts in question are outstanding shorts and have a place on the Pluto set.
But the problem is, being releases aimed at collectors I would imagine the vast majority of people do have all the sets (or all the cartoon sets at least).
And that they suddenly put things on the disc that are NOT PLUTO cartoons.
This in some way began with Donald Duck this year. The Wise Little Hen was included (I can accept that easily, because that was the duck´s first appearance), but to include so many shorts on the Pluto set just because the character is IN the short, is ridiculous I think.
This is where I agree. Disney seemed to have made and stuck to a consistant listing policy, with only one disappointment (in retrospect) being the none inclusion of "How to Ride a Horse" as a stand-alone short in the Goofy set (which I only complain about now due to the inclusion of the Fantasia and Mickey and the Beanstalk in the second colour Mickey set). I may be wrong, but I think the other missing short wasn't a Goofy title card? Unless Chernobog means Soccermania?
Of the Pluto shorts I can see "The Chain Gang" (first prototype Pluto), another cartoon (first actual recognisable Pluto) and "Mother Pluto" (a silly symphony which is actually a Pluto cartoon) but no others should be included. I'm also surprised by the nature of the selections: Why "Beach Panic" and not "Donald and Pluto"? At least Pluto is in the title and technically it is a crossover cartoon from the Mickey Mouse title cards to the individual character title cards so perhaps could be argued to have more justification.
Sorry Joe, but I don't think we should complain about cartoons which have been released as bonuses on other discs - one of the nice thing about the treasures is getting them all together.
The issue is the set has been split. Also the naming of this set is wrong. It should not be complete. (And it won't be complete with vol 2 being as they have decided to include other cartoons with Pluto simply in them. Either its title cards for everything, and the "Complete Pluto" will be neither) I was in denial about the whole splitting thing; now I'm just in depression.
