Sure, Dave, but remember that a lot of the ads are either repeats, or are
selling something else, such as Disney cels, so don't worry if I don't
send anything for a while.

Disney has finally seen the light!

Can a boxed set of Disney academy award nominated shorts be in the works?
How about a chronological CAV boxed set series?

(I wonder if they will release The Golden Touch, the only short directed
by Disney (after Disney started making talkies).  Never heard of it? 
There's a very good reason.  Disney, while a creative person and shrewd
businessman, was also a terrible animation director.
