This DVD only set doesn't have the Todd/Pitts shorts. Those are licensed elsewhere.

What it does have are the 21 Todd/Kelly shorts. In a Facebook post, Classic Flix says the upcoming set is also expected to have the 1 Kelly/Shelton short and the 2 Kelly/Roberti shorts.

A tentative release date, according to their Facebook post, is late June/early July.

As for the shorts, Classic Flix says "the elements are the same ones that have been shown on TCM, but we're doing minor restoration work on them."

A pre-order is not available yet but a full announcement is expected soon.

Classic Flix says the initial batch of discs will be pressed but subsequent batches may be MODs.

I'm glad some of the lesser-known Hal Roach comedies are coming available. That studio could do no wrong, in my eyes.

For those still wondering, the Todd/Kelly set will NOT be captioned.

I am crushed with disappointment. ClassicFlix is doing a great job of captioning its films noir, so I was hopeful they would extend the policy to their comedies. Alas, not so. They want us to scream with terror, not with laughter.
