It's really unfortunate that the prints we normally see have amped-up reds -- as I understand it, the cartoons were later processed that way to adjust how they would appear on black & white TV (back in the 1950s).

Fortunately the b & w Fleischer stuff looks good, although we're stuck with "U. M. & M." instead of the original Paramount logos (or "NTA" is still around in other cases).
Last Saturday, METV showed Fleischer's color classic "All's Fair At The Fair" during the Popeye block.

I don't see any more on the schedule for this Saturday or next.

Looks like they (METV) are going to mix in a few cartoons from the Gene Deitch 60's Popeye show starting Feb 27th with Matinee Idol Popeye.

I found this one sort of odd, because Daffy's personality had already been changed 10 years prior to be a lot less screwy / insane (Tex Avery 's original version), plus a mere two months later Daffy undergoes yet another personality change that would permanently define his character moving forward with Chuck Jones classic "The Scarlet Pumpernickel".

(does not believe that "classic" was shown in this "Popeye block" last Saturday; remembers having seen a different cartoon that could be referenced as "All's Fair At The Fair" (or "All's Fair at the Fair" in cases of certain beings such as my self) in a "Popeye block" last Saturday)

Sorry about that. My heads a little foggy when I first wake up.

For Daffy at his looniest check out Daffy Duck Hunt from 1949. He's totally bonkers, even emitting spit as he's cavorting around at the beginning.

Boobs in the Woods, as well as DD Hunt, are McKimson cartoons. He may have wanted to keep Daffy looney.

Thumb Fun and Quack Shot are a couple of other examples.

I'm not very familiar with Popeye--these aren't those dreadful Popeye and Brutus cartoons, are they? The ones with Popeye in a star at the beginning?

You win the day on this, since MeTV doesn't do that. I hope that means they aren't getting complaints.
Really curious to see if they will show "A-Lad-And His Lamp" and Rebel Rabbit? Two classic Bugs Bunny cartoons.

Think so. Below, is an episode synopsis from the METV schedule page.

"Brutus is an egotistical French director making a film about Antony and Cleopatra, starring Popeye and Olive Oyl."

I know I'm gonna hear about this, but I doubt it, particularly A-Lad...

I was just reading the rundown of Rebel Rabbit, and it hasn't been on any DVD set. I'm pretty sure Cartoon Network didn't show it (nor did they show A-Lad...), so it may not be prepped for broadcast.

Speaking of classics, another one CN didn't show was Ali Baba Bunny.

Correction: I just went to the basement and checked a VHS list. I have Rebel Rabbit (and A-Lad) from CN's June Bugs in 2001. I need to put RR on a DVD!
(I'd have to re-check but I don't think Ali Baba was on June Bugs.)

Here's another one I know CN didn't show on June Bugs: Mississippi Hare, now there's a funny cartoon! Last time that was shown was probably on CBS or ABC Saturday morning shows.

For those who don't know, June Bugs was a CN weekend marathon of every Bugs Bunny cartoon except the ones they didn't (dare) show.

Ugh! Well, maybe they're not as bad as I remember them. Last time I saw those was on Popeye Theater in Philadelphia, many years ago.

Thanks for your commentary stevea on the Warner "Blue Ribbon" reissues. Did you happen to have the official Warner DVD set that includes "Horton Hatches the Egg" --? I think my brother may have it, but I haven't borrowed his sets yet. I was wondering if it's been restored -- there's been a small image of the original title card online for years.

"Horton" is on Golden Collection 6, disc 4. See below from Wikipedia:

Sketches and photos of the original titles for "Katnip Kollege", "Farm Frolics", "Sioux Me", "The Fifth-Column Mouse", "Pigs in a Polka", "The Mouse-Merized Cat", "The Cagey Canary", "A Tale of Two Kitties" and "Horton Hatches the Egg" have surfaced, but their real titles have not been found.

The Wikipedia article this came from is pretty good, and someone keeps it pretty well up to date:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...ibbon_reissues

Warners ought to be checking abroad. I have a few toons from overseas where the originals were probably sent over there and retained--"Fast and Furry-Ous" and "For Scent-Imental Reasons", for example.

This is also interesting:

The original titles for "Sunday Go to Meetin' Time", "The Merry Old Soul",[2] "September in the Rain", "Tweetie Pie", "Tale of Two Mice", "House Hunting Mice", "Doggone Cats", "I Taw a Putty Tat", "Daffy Dilly", "Mouse Menace" and "Life with Feathers" all are known to exist. However, the original audio is also required for the short to be present restored on a home video release.

Yes, you need the audio. If there are notes on the shorts, the music could be redone.

A lot of these have been recreated online (Youtube), but someone is guessing on the music and pulling it from other titles. As much music as Stalling reused, someone with actual notes could probably pull the "real" music from other titles.

Thanks -- yes, it's exciting when stuff is found overseas in its original form. Old films (especially silents) and old BBC TV programming have really benefited in restoring archives by that means.

Here's the Horton image I mentioned from prior to the Blue Ribbon change:
