Walt Disney Treasures Donald Duck Vol 4 Replacement disc?

From http://www.dvdizzy.com/donaldvol4b.html

The Walt Disney Treasures line has been very good about offering even controversial cartoons in their original, uncut form. The Chronological Donald Volume Four contains a notable but befuddling exception to that rule. Bee on Guard, a 1951 short located on Disc One, ends abruptly and chops off five seconds from the original cut. The truncation is likely a mistake rather than an intentional edit; the five missing seconds contain nothing that could be considered offensive or legally troubling. The omitted animation merely zooms in on the bee's face as he winks. The edit will understandably frustrate many collectors but ultimately isn't of much consequence.
Does anyone know if any replacement disc was ever issued for the first disc from this set? And if so can it still be obtained?

I tried searching online I could only come up with these pieces of evidence.

Wikipedia talks about a replacement disc: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walt_D...d,_Volume_Four

And this link lists info on other replacement discs but only mentions that a replacement disc for this one would be issued: http://filmscoremonthly.com/board/po...1282&archive=0

Call up Disney customer service - if anyone knows it will be them.

But I wouldn't hold my breath they still have replacement discs available even if one was made at one point.

On Monday I plan to do that. Not optimistic about it though.

Sadly it doesn't look like the short even had a DVD release besides this one: http://disney.wikia.com/wiki/Bee_on_Guard

Just give a shot as you have nothing to lose and you never know, but if I'm a betting man on this, the odds might be slim due to the age factor of that set and how now that set along with the rest of the Treasures sets being in moratorium isn't helping matters in that regard but crazier things have happened before.

Yeah, I wouldn't count on it, especially since Volume four was manufactured in extremely low numbers compared to the other Donald sets.

Whether or not they issue me a disc would still be interesting to know if one was ever issued.

UPDATE on this!

I called 800-723-4763 and I pressed 1 for English and 5 for all other inquires.

They asked me for some info on the release

UPC
86936 76826

Spine
057742

Then the numbers on the disc, this is where it becomes tricky

The FRONT of Disc 1 says 367127 CD4-ON-NW1.1 (IN MIRROR WRITING NO LESS - at least on mine)

The BACK of Disc 1 says 367126 CD4-ON-NW1.1

I said "the front says 367127 and the back says 367126"

Seems that info was adequate and I was told they would be able to replace the disc! I couldn't believe it!

A few days later I got the envelope, sent my old disc, then got back a new one! I tried it and you see the full footage on the "Bee On Guard" short! Wow that is awesome! Especially when you consider this is the only non-VHS release of that particular short.

For those that want to check their disc, the back of the corrected disc says 373491 CD4-ON-NW1.2

Since I never knew about this up until now, I wonder if any replacement discs were issued for the first Mickey Mouse in Living Color (the censored audio in Clock Cleaners), the first Silly Symphonies (censored Jewish disguise in Three Little Pigs), and the second Mickey Mouse in B&W (The Castaway missing 2 seconds)

Like I told you, all you needed to do was try as the worst thing they could have told you was no, but always remember this...expect the unexpected at any given time and you won't get prosecuted for at least trying and you tried it and you got results out of this. Good job and enjoy!

Just got off the phone with Disney. The phone rep didn't request any of the info you were asked for. Said I'd get the disc in two to four weeks and that there'd be a remailer to send back the old disc.

They can ask me whatever they want I don't mind. I got a replacement disc so I'm happy with that!

Re: Walt Disney Treasures Donald Duck Vol 4 Replacement disc?

For what it's worth, I asked them about Mickey Mouse in Living Color and Mickey Mouse in B&W vol 2 they said no new versions were issued. Such a shame.

At least I bought for less than $5 shipped on ebay a used copy of Have a Laugh vol 2 which fixes the Clock Cleaners short.

Three Little Pigs I got someone to send me the vob from the UK release.

There's sadly no easy fix for the issues in Mickey Mouse in B&W vol 2.
