    You're right. I've seen that cartoon a lot long before they even created the Cartoon Network, let along Boomerang; and that is the first time I've ever seen one second of your footage AFTER the explosion. Understandably why, but still…

    Wow.Is this in the new Droopy box set, coming out next week?

    Having seen the entire cartoon again, I don't remember Droopy ever going back to the cabin after it burnt to the ground, but I can't swear to the last couple of seconds in the lightning strikes twice sequence. In any event, while socially acceptable at the time, it's obvious why those moments were edited out.If you want another for-instance: when the Hanna-Barbera studios and the MGM cartoon archives were both under Ted Turner's ownership, H&B went back at their own expense and re-recorded all the housekeeper's dialogue from every Tom and Jerry cartoon she appeared in.

    I have no idea if this is in the boxed set or not. Somehow, I doubt it– but I can always hope.
