I'm with you, I think it should all be released. In the case of "Song of the South", I think it's a question of throwing out the baby with the bath water. Great lead performances by African American actors at a time when they weren't given more than bit or background parts in mainstream films. And the title character is the moral compass of the entire film. It's the white folk who are screwed up.
Thanks. I try to keep things even remotely connected to Open Vault Disney out of things like religion and politics, but this one issue is hard to avoid. You would be right, the black guy is the most moral character in the whole film!
Actually, "Student Exchange" was has been available on PAL VHS in Europe for over 20 years and the Generations Collection DVD copied the coverart and back cover exactly.
Also, "Fuzzbucket" was released as a double feature PAL VHS in Australia, also over 20 years ago (it is a bit more rare and was coupled with the only VHS release of "Mr Boogedy").
Again, it seems that the Generations Collection is only using already created VHS masters from the 1980s as their source, and as such we should pick films that would be best presented from a VHS master.....the 1960s television films were edited when released on VHS in the 1980s, and therefore I propose that we push the DMC to issue them as exclusive DVDs with their original version intact (including Walt intro)...a la "Atta Girl Kelly".
Good to know, I was not aware of any of that. I try to keep up with what has been released outside of the US, but that can be hard, so thanks. That said, I still would not worry yet about titles never released to VHS not being released via the MOD titles. I know of one title for sure (that will remain unrevealed for now as I probably should not even say this much) that definitely was never released on VHS that almost did and might still get a "Generations Collection" release.
One of Our Dinosaurs Is Missing is available for streaming/rental on Amazon.com. This tells me that Disney is willing to make it available in the US, and that any concerns about offending anyone are not the sole reason for it's unavailability on dvd. It probably has more to do with it's saleability. The fact that it's available for fiewing on Amazon gives me hope that it will make it to dvd someday.
You would be right. It has great potential as a DMC or MOD release.
