    No More Maltin Disneyland Treasures?

    Someone posted this note from Leonard Maltin on the net:

    "I have been told that there will be no more Treasures, and of course I'm disappointed. I have the exact same questions you do about "unfinished business," and I wish I had answers, but I don't. Nor have I been told what they plan to do under the Legacy imprint. That this series exists at all is a minor miracle, and I feel grateful that we had a six-year run with it. cheers, Leonard Maltin"

    Rats! They haven't finished releasing all the shorts yet - - or the TV episodes I'd hoped for.

    Think of all the classic Disneyland park material we have yet to get on DVD...

    Write to Disney!

    I said my answer to this in here. What is your favorite Walt Disney Treasure?

    Still; How sad. I do love the Disney Treasures very much and I love to listen to Leonard Maltin.

    Good idea Disney! You shouldn't sell material people want and are willing to buy! You shouldn't capitalize on meterial that we want.

    If this is indeed true, who the heck makes these ridiculous decisions at Disney? The Disney Treasures collection was definatly a money maker for the company.

    I hope Disney reads this thread and realize the mistake they are making.

    To be honest, they seem like they are throwing out crumbs. Other companies release entire series in box sets. Disney releases a box, which is mostly hollow, and has one or two DVDs in it. Instead of releasing "Disneyland TV show", they release a few episodes tied to a narrow theme which take up too much space on your shelf.

    I still buy a few of them, and I still want them to release more, but the appeal is narrow and the price high, so I could see them not all selling well.

    I want them to blow their wad. Make a set with a dozen DVDs and such strong appeal it's hard not to buy, and one that stores easy too! No giant mouse heads Disney!

    Who needs Disney Treasures when you can buy Bambi 25?

    Re: No More Maltin Disneyland Treasures?

    I really don't know what the point of this series is if it doesn't release all of the material it has to offer. It has been slow trickling out content. The content isn't always the material that I have wanted to see. I want to see the release of Zorro... I want to see the later Disneyland specials throughout the years... I want to see programing from early Disney Channel.

    The programing was not "fully restored" or remastered. It was retreads of later edits. And it was specifically targeted at a certain age range, and pretty much screeched to a hault, I think mostly because there was not enough volume.

    On the up side I am happy with the material they did release... Because it didn't seem like I would see this material again in any other condition.

    I agree with Cellar. Plus I would enjoy seeing a Zorro release as well.

    Oh no! Maybe some of the rest of the cartoons will be released as part of the new Legacy collection.

    Agreed.

    I'm tired of being a pigeon, hoping for the next crumb. I want "Walt Disney's Disneyland" - the entire series in a mega boxed set.

    Do what they did with the Musical History of Disneyland CD set - make a limited edition version of the set that collectors will go crazy over, and make a normal set that general fans will enjoy just as much.

    Then they can release Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color in a similar boxed set, and on-and-on......

    Re: No More Maltin Disneyland Treasures?

    And what the freak is this? (from the link above)

    Apparently— and here's where my source went into more detail than Mr. Maltin— the Treasures series is not being halted due to lack of public interest, nor do the most recent wave's smaller edition numbers (60,000 vs. 100,000+) reflect plunging sales. From what I understand, the smaller editions and possible cancellation merely reflect deliberate marketing efforts, so that Treasures will not sideline newer products that Home Video management wants to launch.
    Not sideline newer products? Even WITH Lasseter on board, are we still looking forward to Lady and the Tramp III, and Lion King 14.7? Is THIS what is cutting into their marketing efforts?

    But they never finished Donald so they haven't put out my favorite, Trick Or Treat. Not to mention Zorro, how can you put out the Hardy Boys and not Zorro?
