I had no idea that laying a DVD down onto a bedspread for 30 seconds to take a picture makes them unplayable.

Gawd, someone's being either incredibly sarcastic or incredibly anal... :roll: If laying a DVD onto a soft bedspread was so damaging, I'd hate for you to receive a DVD in the mail where the disc had become dislodged and all scratched up by the time it arrived.

Oddly enough, when I ordered the Ultimate Superman Collection in 2006, the 14th disc (Bryan Singer's Video Journals) was loose and so it was a bit scratched up. But it played fine! :lol:

I wonder what happens if I lay a DVD label-side-down on the bedspread. Would it cause it to suddenly look ugly and faded?

I just tried it with my Platinum Edition of Beauty and the Beast. I took disc one and placed a Kleenex brand tissue against the bottom ever so gently. Then I put it in my DVD player and you know what? I think that all of the people who say it looks like a Hannah Barbara cartoon probably had a Kleenex touch their disc too, because that's what it looked like. It didn't look that when I watched it in July before the gentle piece of tissue touched the bottom.

Just for kicks, I rubbed a cheese grader against the bottom of The Boatniks and I couldn't tell a difference between before and after. Go figure!

I did a similar experimant where I took an eraser to The Haunted Mansion with the hopes of erasing Eddie Murphy. Unfortunately he's there for Evers and Evers. :wink:

Already on Disc 3 of Season 1 and the series is amazing, Walt pulled out all the stops when it came to TV, really knew how to excite the audience.

Please visit http://www.billcotter.com/zorro/dvd-treasures.htm for a look at the DVD contents and some thoughts on them.

Thanks for the link, Bill. I was especially intrigued by this:

    A few fans have written to ask why there isn't more in the way of supplemental materials. For example, why didn't Disney include the original commercials, or copies of public service announcements Guy did as Zorro? Or a collection of still photographs, or copies of press kits, etc? The answer, as you might imagine, is a combination of money and time, or more precisely, the lack of. Some things that seem simple are often complicated. Take the original commercials, for example. Although some of them, such as the 7-Up and AC Delco ads, might have been produced for Disney, they were done under contract for the original advertisers. Who owns the rights, then? Did the original voce-over contracts allow for use on DVDs? Obviously DVDs didn't exist then and all that would need to be sorted out. That would all take time and money, and to be fair to Disney, would it help sell the additional number of DVDs required to break even on the expense? I really doubt it.


It really puts some perspective into the whole point of Treasures releases, which is to get the content out there. The special features really are just icing on the cake (which unfortunately seems to get smaller and smaller each year :( ). So while I'm upset that the Sing-Along song version of the Zorro thee isn't there (with a Masked-Mickey-The-Bouncing-Ball), I'm glad for the special features that *are* present.

I don't count the third season as bonus features even though Disney does, but the first thing I did when I got my set was watch the three new featurettes and the clip from the anniversary show. I felt the newly made bonus features were well done and of a decent length too. I mean, there is always more that they can do with any release, but I think they gave Zorro fans a nice batch of extras. We're lucky to even have them. Every studio except Disney has stopped making bonus features for older content.

So with 30,000 editions available of each season, how long until these will be sold out do you guys think?

I'm up to episode 12 now. Good show.

My guess, it'll be all sold out before Christmas.

They are starting to sell out now. What were they out less than a week? Get Zorro while you are able before prices go crazy. :o

Here's a question, which episodes made up The Sign of Zorro and what year did it come out? UD has it listed as 1960 but IMDB has 1958 listed.

Author:  Escapay [ Mon Nov 09, 2009 4:20 pm ]

It was released overseas in 1958, but not released to the US until 1960. Wikipedia says it's from episodes with the Monastario storyline.

Zorro, the Avenger was based on the end of the Eagle storyline and was released overseas in 1959.

I was just thinking about those Zorro lithographs Disney offered thru DMR earlier this year to promote Wave IX. Were they the same as the ones that came in the tins or were they different?

Just finished discs 1 and 2 on Season One and disc 1 on Season Two and I am absolutely beaming. The restoration job is top-notch and any true Zorro fan will think he or she has died and gone to Heaven, ar at least the Pueblo de Los Angeles.

Bravo Disney on a job well done on these Treasures sets!

I am currently on disc two and so far I think it's a pretty good series. I remember watching a few episodes when they aired on Vault Disney. It might take me a while to finish both sets as I am very busy with work and college.
