I have to agree that Sony needs to free the shorts! Yes! We need to have all of these wonderful shorts available on DVD. The sets that we have of The Three Stooges are very close to perfection. After they're done with them, they need to release all of the others. Well, as many as they can. I know they released a volume of Buster Keaton. I haven't got that yet, but I will. I'm still hoping for that set of Charlie Chase. That would be very good.
We need all of these shorts released on DVD so we can all watch them and enjoy them, talk about them, etc. We all have different opinions on which ones we like and dislike. But without a good way to watch them, we can't really talk about them. If they're gonna be removed from youtube, then they need to be released on DVD. That's what Sony needs to do.
On that note, I wonder how many shorts (other than the 3 Stooges) were done in 3-D?
