Trivia / Columbia Cartoons

  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: The bulk of the library is not available, especially in regards to the pre-UPA Columbia library (which has had most of its library restored save for a handful of shorts that are either missing, only exist in fragments or in crude dupe negative form) save for what is available on Jerry Beck's Cartoon Research Garage Sale Web site. Fortunately, the cartoons are now being aired on the Antenna TV program "Totally Tooned In". Jerry has said that he is working with Columbia on a DVD release at this time. UPA: The Jolly Frolics Collection is now available from Turner Classic Movies. A set of the theatrical Mr. Magoo shorts has also been released.
