Mid-Century Modern Animation- Volume 1

Quote:

Thunderbean is proud to present this revised Blu-ray edition of rare, 'modern design' cartoons from the 40's, 50's and early 60's. These theatrical shorts, commercials, industrial films and drive-in commercials were produced by studios stepping away from the established cartoon design styles that had become standards in the industry, instead finding inspiration in modern graphic design and the work of contemporary fine artists. These new ideas in animation design became staples of the Television age, largely because of the influences and pioneering work of United Productions of America (UPA) as well as the many newly established commercial studios. This collection is mastered from original 16mm and 35mm prints. Quality is stunning.

Films in this collection include:

Theatrical and entertaining Industrials:
Big Tim- Beautifully animated UPA short from 1948
Destination Earth-Oil is king in this astonishingly designed industrial short from 1956
The Magic Fluke-Great Fox and Crow short from UPA
It's Only the Beginning- rare Technicolor John Sutherland pro-business propaganda film
The Sailor and the Seagull (1949) rare UPA cartoon for the Navy
Swab Your Choppers (1948) UPA for the US Navy
Planet Patrol- Rare and cool late 50's pilot for a TV series

Great news, and just pre-ordered it! GULLIVER'S TRAVELS was the first feature-length film I bought when I started collecting 16mm back in college, and was a nice reduction print from Thunderbird, but this Blu-ray promises to surpass it greatly in quality (not to mention including all the rare bonus shorts) at a tiny fraction of what I paid for the used 16mm print decades ago!

Thanks OP ... Great news!!! I bought from Thunderbean in the past (the Private Snafu DVD) and was very impressed with their product and service.

EDIT: This is the kind of small company I'm very happy to support.
So many blurays, so little time.

First blu-ray purchase - "Jason and the Argonauts" on July 6, 2010.

Can't wait! I own all the Thunderbean DVDs and I'm really pleased we are now getting Blu-Rays as well.

Another Blu-Ray that will eventually be released by Thunderbean is one called 'Technicolor Dreams and B/W Nightmares'. It will feature 20 rare cartoons from the 1920-1950s.

Question someone asked in the comments at the Cartoon Research post;
Quote:
Q: Definitely ordering this no matter what, but it would be nice to know what other cartoons are included. I don’t see them here or on the Amazon page – ? Or is that still being decided?

STANCHFIELD: 

I kind of like a surprise 
Some are already decided, but so far for sure are: Modeling (35mm Nitrate transfer), Ding Dong Doggie (Pudgy), one of the Gabby shorts, In My Merry Oldsmobile (35mm Nitrate), and a color classic (35mm).

I hope they eventually release the Superman series they did as well. Those are incredible pieces of animation that had a DVD release years ago, but wasn't a really great transfer.

Even though Warner restored the B/W Popeyes in HD years ago (for the DVD releases), they haven't been eager to release them on Blu-Ray.

I'm calling it now; this will be the most dramatic improvement in a Blu-Ray double dip ever for a feature film (even if both releases aren't by the same company). The previous Blu-Ray can't help but look even worse in comparison.
