There was some interest in this recently @ Amazon before the price went up. Can't find the thread now.

I've quoted "complete" because these are fairly heavily edited & re-dubbed. The re-dubbed voice of Mammy Two Shoes really spoils the whole experience for me & I've only watched a few episodes despite owning the set for a couple of years at least.

Will no doubt amuse those too young to know the difference though & cheap enough for 6 disks.

Info regarding the Cut & Dubbed state of Tom & Jerry.

Warner Home Video has announced a disc replacement program for Tom & Jerry Spotlight Collection, Volume 2, due to complaints that some of the cartoons on the set were censored, when they were not supposed to be. For those who purchased Tom & Jerry Spotlight Collection, Volume 2, call (toll free) 1-800-553-6937 and give them your name, address and telephone number. A self-addressed stamped envelope will be sent to you so that you can return the old discs. You'll be sent corrected replacement discs within about 4 weeks. No word yet on the replacements for Spotlight Collection 1. This offer is for U.S. residents only.

Here is a comment from an reviewer from 2004.

Apparently, the edits in this collection were a mistake, and the first disc can be replaced. I found the following on tomandjerryonline:
I was searching, today the 21st, on one of the forums below and happened upon Jerry Beck's (Cartoon Historian who worked on the DVD) post:

Warner Bros. Home Video is very, very upset over the edited cartoons that made their way into the TOM & JERRY SPOTLIGHT COLLECTION.

This was a mistake made at the servicing level. Warner Home Video and I became aware of the error only ten days before the official release date - and by then, the dvds were on their way to the stores.

It is part of Warner Bros. Home Video's marketing plan not to release edited or censored cartoons because they know that collectors want them complete.

The company is taking immediate steps to correct the situation. The proper digital masters of all three cartoons have been located and are being prepared now for replication. It may take as long as six to eight weeks to have a corrected disc ready for replacement.

From what I've been able to gather, the intention is for fans to be able to replace Disc 1 at no charge to them. I know from personal experience that Warners had a problem a year ago with the film KISS ME KATE. The transfer was not done correctly and fans were upset. Warners responded immediately, created a new transfer and eventually fans recieved replacement discs. It was not an overnight process. But it all worked out in the end.

Those of you waiting for the uncut disc 1 to appear on store shelves, I cannot say when that will happen. It will not happen soon. The quickest way to get the set the way you want it is to buy it now and go through the replacement process.

Despite this inconvience, There is much to recommend on the TOM & JERRY SPOTLIGHT COLLECTION as is. The CinemaScope transfers are amazing, and the never-before-released stereo soundtrack on TOUCHE PUSSY CAT is really fantastic. (Only eight MGM Cartoons were recorded in true stereo at the time and this is the first one to be restored and released as originally intended).
oh dear just bought from amazon :(
Great price
Is the (original un-politicly corrected), version still available?

Have a look here.

Seems some US (R1) sets are uncut but it doesn't mention the overdubbing. Given that the overdubbing started in the US, I guess they probably still are.

That's an interesting read.
I've got the entire collection somewhere including unedited episodes i think that i errr mmmm shhh downloaded;-)
The overdub and edits really are just annoyingly jarring (at least to someone who grew up watching these). The recent Popeye sets are the way such a collection should be done.
Don't forget Quidco.
Good call. :thumbsup:

I DID forget with some other stuff I ordered so cancelled & re-ordered. :oops:
Edited title to reflect price increase.
I guess the credit crunch is really getting HMV so they need another £3.
