A COLUMBIA CARTOON ON DVD

lost skeleton of cadaveraThose of you longing for Columbia Pictures to release their library of UPA and Screen Gems cartoons on dvd – you’ll have to keep waiting.But, Columbia-Tristar Home Video will commit one Color Rhapsody cartoon to digital home video this summer when it releases a “special edition” of the B-movie spoof THE LOST SKELETON OF CADAVERA on dvd June 22nd. The Ub Iwerks 1937 cartoon “Skeleton Frolic”, a color remake of Disney’s “The Skeleton Dance” (1929), was re-released theatrically with LOST SKELETON in its limited theatrical release this past winter. It will be included as bonus material on the dvd. The LOST SKELETON feature itself is hilarious, and highly recommended regardless – the addition of this bonus cartoon makes it a must-buy.
