I assume that this is French dubbed only, right?

No...it has the original mono audio track which will be english although according to that link i posted the french mono track wasn't preserved so i wouldn't at all be suprised if forced french subtitles were to be imposed.

Be aware though....the transfers will be exactly the same as your laserdisc boxset as it states in the link that they haven't been restored.

possible US set

There's a thread over at the forum on Jerry Beck's Cartoon Research site that mentions this set. Someone asked Jerry if he knew of plans to issue a US version of the set, and he said he "could not comment". So, hopefully that's a politically cautious way of saying yes??? That seemed to be the consensus on the forum, and Jerry didn't deny this. In any case, he confirmed that the French DVD set would be from the same masters as the old LD set.

Looks very nice (if highly over-priced), but JEEZ- click on the link and you get four pop-up windows (in French)! What were they thinking, "How can we make sure no one ever comes back here?"
