Tom & Jerry - looking for info on DVD replacement program

first off, i desperately wanted to buy the new R1 2-disc set of tom & jerry. but after reading about the cuts on the 1st disc, i held off. since i'm not located in the US the disc replacement program is not an option (i did that with the BTTF set and it ended up costing me $100 overall )

now i surfed around on amazon's german site and they have a 12-dvd set of tom & jerry! does anyone have more info on this (quality, specs, cuts, etc.)?
i'm not going to blind-buy this and find out it's crap...
(this is not available on amazon.com or .co.uk)

You'll be better off asking a Mod to move this to the International forum, since this is an R2 release.

there is a R2 forum?!


from here http://www.dvdtalk.com/forum/showthr...ry+disc+edited

At cartoonresearch Jerry Beck says:

"Warner Bros. Home Video is very, very upset over the edited cartoons that made their way into the TOM & JERRY SPOTLIGHT COLLECTION.

This was a mistake made at the servicing level. Warner Home Video and I became aware of the error only ten days before the official release date - and by then, the dvds were on their way to the stores.

It is part of Warner Bros. Home Video's marketing plan not to release edited or censored cartoons because they know that collectors want them complete.

The company is taking immediate steps to correct the situation. The proper digital masters of all three cartoons have been located and are being prepared now for replication. It may take as long as six to eight weeks to have a corrected disc ready for replacement.

From what Iíve been able to gather, the intention is for fans to be able to replace Disc 1 at no charge to them. I know from personal experience that Warners had a problem a year ago with the film KISS ME KATE. The transfer was not done correctly and fans were upset. Warners responded immediately, created a new transfer and eventually fans recieved replacement discs. It was not an overnight process. But it all worked out in the end.

Those of you waiting for the uncut disc 1 to appear on store shelves, I cannot say when that will happen. It will not happen soon. The quickest way to get the set the way you want it is to buy it now and go through the replacement process.

Despite this inconvience, There is much to recommend on the TOM & JERRY SPOTLIGHT COLLECTION as is. The CinemaScope transfers are amazing, and the never-before-released stereo soundtrack on TOUCHE ***** CAT is really fantastic. (Only eight MGM Cartoons were recorded in true stereo at the time and this is the first one to be restored and released as originally intended).

I don't have a direct link, but you can search for Tom and Jerry in the DVD Talk area. The thread on the topic was around here only about a month ago.

When Warner does release details on it can we make sure we make a thread about it. I remember reading about this a month ago and I completly forgot about it. I sure hope I don't forget to switch mine later.

Any update on the replacement disc programme? Originally I heared it was going to be within a month of the release. It's way past that now - have I missed something?

Thanks
Chris
