You mock, but yes it was! It sparked major outrage when it was censored for the DVD, and when this was announced for blu ray fans everywhere were praying that the scene would be restored. Now everyone is ecstatic.

Having old cartoons (be it Disney, Warner Bros, Walter Lantz, MGM, etc etc) in their original uncensored form is the wet fantasy and demand of movie/cartoon fans everywhere.

Personally, I hate cigarettes and smoking with a passion. You won't find very many people more anti-smoking than me. Yet I loath censorship of cigarettes and smoking in cartoons.

One another notable incident of cigarette/smoking censorship in Disney was in the Pecos Bill segment of the Melody Time DVD. He had a cigarette in basically every scene and it was digitally removed. In one scene he lit a cigarette with a lightning rod so that was cut entirely. I actually bought the R2 UK DVD years ago which features that segment completely un altered.

However, the fact that this blu ray restored Goofy smoking elevates my hopes of an uncensored Melody Time blu ray :like:

I bought the Disney Movie Club exclusive Two in one blu ray of the Disney feature length films Saludos Amigos and The Three Caballeros

The Saludos Amigos release is partiuclarly significant because a scene where Goofy smokes was censored off the DVD release: https://www.movie-censorship.com/report.php?ID=1996

Obviously a lot of people are ecstatic now that it's released as originally made on blu ray, marking the first uncensored release of this since the laserdisc.

Last time I placed a Disney Movie Club order was for the Disney Treasures set in 2005 so it was good to put my membership to use again.
Disney are apparently pleased with how well this blu ray set did. Hopefully this encourages them to release more stuff uncensored.

Well I finally plunged into purchasing 4K, even though I don't have a 4K player or TV.

I bought

Predator
Bram Stoker's Dracula

Both versions also contain the regular blu, though in the case of Predator the blu disc is a DNR nightmare.

Before long everything will be standard 4K (TV, players, discs). Dracula is horrible.

Agreed.

I hope to one day buy Bladerunner Final Cut in 4K once that gets cheaper. From what I read online it's pretty mind blowing. But I will still keep my multi disc blu ray release because those have the original US and European theatrical cuts.

Strangely enough 4K releases don't have region coding like its predecessors.
Dracula is horrible.
Why do you say that it's a classic starring Gary Oldman. 4K review: https://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Bram-Sto ... ay/171527/

Haven't updated this. So some blus I got the past few months.

Gone with the Wind (70th Anniversary Edition)

Heavy Metal (1981 cartoon)

Supergirl (80s movie)

Fatal Fury: The Motion Picture (Discotek Anime release, HD and fully valid uncensored release with all audio tracks)

Popeye the Sailer The 1940s: Volume. Popeye makes his blu ray debut with 14 fully restored and 100% uncensored color shorts! I am still flabbergasted how the VERY un-pc (and very awesome) "Pop-Pie a la Mode" short was included no issue. One person actually said this should have been included in later releases in case it would spark controversy and hinder further Popeye blu ray releases. Hopefully the release of this short sets a precedent so that we get more restored uncensored cartoons. On a side note, because of Popeye I ate spinach as a child, a habit I retain to this very day.

Birth of a Nation. HELL NO not the recent monstrosity called Birth of a Nation. I'm talking about DW Griffith's 1915 masterpiece that set the groundwork for movie making as it exists today. I got the Twlight Time version which features a fantastic HD transfer.

On Black Friday I got

ET 35th anniversary 4K (includes digibook and soundtrack). Thankfully unlike Star Wars sanity prevailed and all blus/4k of this are original theatrical no CGI nonsense

Bladerunner 2049 4K

Disney's Robin Hood

Disney's The Fox and the Hound

Not. But preparing. If something is out on both blu and 4K I never buy the blu. Also, 4K movies come with the blu, much like many blus come with the DVD. So really no point in buying blus anymore unless it's something not out on 4K. On a side note, I can't recall the DVDs that came with a laserdisc :hahaaa:
