Shove Thy Neighbor

It's no secret (well, maybe it is) that I'm a fan of Terrytoons shorts made under Gene Deitch's short-stint as a creative supervisor. I mean, think of an average "Mighty Mouse" story and compare it to this:

These cartoons were made in CinemaScope, but the YouTube video above is pan-and-scan.

Unfortunately these cartoons are not officially available on DVD. So far the only way to see them is to purchase it from Jerry Beck, which are in pan-and-scan and with TV credits instead of the original theatrical opening.

To anyone from Viacom reading this...RELEASE THESE CARTOONS, DAMMIT! And in the original widescreen format with the original credits, too!
