"Abou Ben Boogie" is coming on DVD........... Chapter 2

Yessir, we need a better print. If you don't buy the Lantz set the very same day it will be released you don't deserve to be named "animation aficionados". Fanboys, that's what you would be. And I'd call you in other ways (What? Threats?) but I'm such an old-fashioned gentleman........

Buy it, fellers. Don't eat for a few days (what's the matter? You'll lose weight in the!)and spare the money. Rob a bank, do what you want but buy it. I want a volume 2.

Well, I'll be seein' ya,
a completely gone Duck Dodgers

Yep, because it is one of the Studio's best and the only one (with "Pass the Biscuits Mirandy") that I've never seen in at least a decent print.
There are 3 copies of it available among collectors:
a b/w Castle Film reissue copy without opening and closing and credits;
an original technicolor copy time-coded with audio problem for the first two minutes;
an original technicolor copy combined by a friend of mine, with sound restored and a black bar in place of the time code.

The situation of "Pass the Biscuits Mirandy" is like the one of the second copy of "Abou Ben Boogie".
That's why I'm expecially looking for these shorts to come out.

Pass the Biscuits Mirandy was achildhood favorite. I sang it all the time. Here's what I remember:
Pass the biscuits Mirandy. I'm gonna load up my gun. We'll use your biscuits for bullets and we'll get those varmits on the run.
(Mirandy)I'll use some glue and some chicken feathers too...chicken feathers ought to make my biscuits light...
If it's on DVD, let me know...I'm looking for it.
