My Local Walmart filled up their dollar DVD bin again. It's pretty much all the same stuff again(movies, TV, cartoons), except for 12 new Cartoon Craze titles. These are not number like the others. They also have different covers. The previews on the disc list 25 titles, 13 which have been previously released. Not sure if they are not making the other 12 old titles anymore.

Old titles. Same covers, same everything

Some really wacky stuff. Unlike previous Digiview cartoon comps, these seems to have the dreaded "And Friends" feel. For example, the Wizard Of Oz is a short cartoon anime version then filled out with 7 Fleischer cartoons and "Marcello, I'm Bored" (1966) directed by John Milius(director of Conan The Barbarian and Big Wednesday)with sound editing by George Lucas! EDIT: Even though it's listed and there's screen captures on the back cover, it's not on the disc. Except for the wizard of oz cartoon, the title listing on the back is completely wrong. D'oh.

Panda and The Magic Serpent is from a pretty bad print, but it is the first feature length color anime film ever made. It also apparently inspired Hayao Miyazaki to get into animation.

I was able to get 7 of the new discs, I'll report more titles when i can.
