Tom and Jerry Come to Life at a Store Near YouLAB 601 creates special features for animation classic DVD (October 06, 2004)
Fans of the Tom and Jerry legacy have LAB 601 to thank for the release of a bonus DVD, planned to be available in stores this December.
The two-disk set of 40 restored and re-mastered shorts is produced by The Benson Company for Warner Brothers, in partnership with Atlanta-based LAB 601. LAB 601 is responsible for the ?special features portion of the project, as well as some of the editing and post-production.
Additionally, Brian Bremer, an account manager at LAB 601 and professional actor, did a portion of the voiceover work as he portrayed Scott Bradley, the composer of the classic Tom and Jerry background music.
?Working on a timeless classic like Tom & Jerry was truly a great opportunity for LAB 601, said Bremer. ?The cartoons are just as amusing today as they were during my childhood.
Tom and Jerry- Spotlight Collection: The Premier Volume includes the creation and evolvement of the cartoon along with nine Academy Award nominated shorts and seven winners. Famous scenes include Jerry dancing with Gene Kelly and the cat-and-mouse team swimming with Esther Williams.
Spanning six decades of famous directors, the animated duo was the creation of William Hanna and Joseph Barbera. The history of Hanna-Barbera is included in the Spotlight Collection in addition to Behind the Tunes, a new documentary on the music of Tom and Jerry.
The new DVD is great for cartoon aficionados and will cost $26.99.
