The rabbit come home to Disney


As part of the compensation for releasing Al Michaels from his contract, in order to broadcast football with John Madden for NBC Universal, Disney has regained the rights to OSWALD, THE LUCKY RABBIT, the predecessor to Mickey Mouse. Walt had done about 26 Oswald cartoons for Universal Pictures in 1927, but was not able to take the character with him when he set up his own studio.

I'm looking forward to some sort of video release, since I don't rememebr seeing any full cartoons.

I wonder if they will release it in the next wave of the Disney Treasures. It would probably do well since I'm sure some of these haven't been seen in quite a while.

I wonder how Al Michaels feels about being traded for a 'toon. ;D
