MGM Cartoon Shorts on DVD Questions
I've read a lot of proposals about LT and MM shorts on DVD, but there's something else I'd like to see in addition to the classic WB shorts, and that's classic MGM shorts from the Hanna-Barbera and Tex Avery eras.
Now, I know that they could easily place random shorts and such on a disc along with extras like archived interviews and sketches, but that's not the real question here.
Technically, the shorts are owned by the Turner Entertainment division of AOL Time Warner Turner (I know that's not the real name of the company, but that's what it should have been), but they were originally produced by Metro Goldwyn Meyer. So, my questions are:
1) Who would exactly own the video rights to these shorts, MGM or Turner?
2) If they belong to Turner, would ATW be willing to release a disc set with a competing studio's logo so prominent at the beginning of every short?
What does the X stand for? It's definitely not Extreme. Extreme starts with E.
