Wouldn't it be great for Terrytoons to be released on DVD!
21 October 2006 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This is another wonderful cartoon from the Paul Terry Studio. I always find it fascinating how people perceived how the future (our present time)would be from decades ago...even in cartoons/comic strips. So many times, what was given as absolute fantasy has turned out to be, nowadays, commonplace and just plain ordinary.

Wouldn't it be great if a compilation of excellent video quality Terrytoons cartoons were released on DVD?!!! The incredible Mighty Mouse cartoons, with that wild accompanying music, would be a good start for DVD release. One can only hope that whoever has the copyright for Terrytoons would see fit to have them set for disc. Paul Terry and his Terrytoons definitely deserve to be seen the days of "Post-War Inventions"!!!
