That "someone who cares", at least I used to think so, is George Feltenstein. Back in the day, George championed the release of innumerable laser disc collections, including the Complete Tex Avery, Happy Harmonies MGM cartoon classics, and a slew of Looney Tunes collections. What a great time. Now, owing to either promotion into the realm of "don't care any more" or "can no longer be bothered", we have lost our one true advocate. Very sad. I hope George responds and explains how and why this has come about. If he responds in this forum, I will be surprised. George was an incredible, reliable supporter for many years because we thought he cared, and he was passionate about preserving and releasing these incredible golden age animation classics. Now, his ambivalence has led to the sorry state of affairs we have witnessed regarding Tom & Jerry Vol. 2, and the apparent demise of Tex Avery on Blu-ray, additional Looney Tunes on Blu-ray, the Fleischer/Famous Superman collection on Blu-ray, and pretty much any other bit of classic animation from now on. I once admired George Feltenstein, but now mourn the loss of his dedication, passion and support. This is a day of mourning for fans of America's incredible output of classic animation. Thank God we have Steven Stanchfield and Jerry Beck to carry the torch, which George Feltenstein has all but extinguished. Yes, I am VERY passionate about this!
