Although, I'm largely impartial to the upcoming movie, at last the five-disc Classic Cartoon Collection set hits DVD for R1 next Tuesday.  I've been waiting for this for, like, forever. 

This, and The Corpse Bride on the same day; it's gonna be a great week for animation fans.  ^_^

661 minutes of cartooning bliss

Picked up The Pink Panther set today, and I'm enjoying it immensely.  This is my first time ever seeing the very first short, "The Pink Phink," and it's an absolutely brilliant and entertaining piece of work.  I've said it before, and I'll say it again: there's something to be said for silent presentation.  It's incredibly refreshing not to have a bunch of mundane talking heads eating up precious screen time, when the animation speaks so acutely for itself.

And Corpse Bride is worth it for the music-only audio track, which essentially has the entire film's score, from beginning to end, with voices and sound effects removed -- yep, that even means instrumental versions of the vocal songs!  I've grown a fonder appreciation for the music as a whole now.

Tears To Shed (Instrumental Version) -- so very, very good.

Oddly enough, the PP cartoon that sticks out most in my mind actually does have voice: an offscreen voice bent on turning PP and his neighbor against each other. And then, boom, speaker reveals himself at the end. A bit creepy when you're 5 years old.

Incidentally, does the collection include at any point the Dexter's Lab homage where Dexter and DeeDee are decorating the lab in blue and pink, respectively?

That's one of my favorites!  Another that comes to mind is when he builds a house, while someone tries to build another at the same time and same place.  Then there's one when he's at a ghost town...ahhh, so many classics!

Hm, could that be "The Pink Phink" episode?  The plot is more or less what you describe; it ends with the "short, rival dude" dumping and burying the cans of pink paint underground in frustration, and as a result, the entire ground, grass, flowers, and the house all turn pink.  Pink instantly moves in, and that's the origin of how he gets his house.
