"Old MacDonald Had a Farm"........and confidentially who cares?

A certain guy will go crazy for this post......
here you have screenshots from a great restored print of this Famous Noveltoons.
My copy does not include the bouncing ball segment and the first shot is the one featured here. I'm not sure if this cartoon was introduced by the classic Paramount montain...........

Well, I'll be seein' ya,
Duck Dodgers

Well, at least we get to see great looking screengrabs of another Noveltoon.

BTW, This cartoon's TV print is, because of the way the credits are configured (They scroll from left to right, not unlike the credits to "Wabbit Twouble"), one of the most atrocious NTA blackout jobs i've ever seen. The transition from the first card you posted to the second is marked with two intersecting black bars in order to keep all the verboten info obscured, and if that's not enough, you can see the word Paramount (as in "Paramount Presents") for a few faint seconds before that's blacked out too.

I remember having seen such absurdity in one PD DVD.

IS that the one where the credits roll upwards, and a series of Black Bars uneasily scroll upwards in order to obscure all the necessary info?

"The Mild West" used the same type of opening as "Old MacDonald", and the NTA print had the same problems. Fortunately for the PD video world, NTA sent out a copy in the late 1970s with the original Paramount titles, and that's the one that most of today's bargain DVDs use (albeit most of the time with the Paramount opening and closing removed).

"I am not sure that the film was introduced by the classic Paramount mountain"

I have seen the cartoon with the orginal Paramount logo.

Search for "4 Sing-Alongs Down on The Farm" on Then buy a used copy, and if it has the UAV and not the Sterling logo on the cassette's sticker, it means you have an old version. Be careful, some tapes are broken.

What was the name of the late 1970s VHS from NTA that has The Mild West with the original Paramount titles?
