                   Announcing the Return of the Puppetoons! 

The Puppetoon Movie Volume 2 Blu-Ray+DVD (Collectors Limited Edition 2 Discs) is a second landmark collection of more dazzling George Pal Academy Award®-winning stop-motion and some all cel animated short subjects. Puppetoons not seen in generations are fully restored from their original Technicolor negatives. With special appearances by Bugs Bunny and Superman! 

Producer-Director Arnold Leibovit - The Fantasy Film Worlds of George PalThe Puppetoon MovieThe Time Machine 2002 remake - proudly presents 18 brilliant high definition Puppetoons never before released on any home video format*

In the 1930s and 1940s, before George Pal made classic features like The Time Machine (1960) and The War of the Worlds (1953), he created dozens of stop-motion animated marvels called Puppetoons™ which utilized an astonishing Pal invention called the replacement figure or series puppet where thousands of wood puppets were created and replaced as required for each advancing frame of film. Pal’s big Idea transformed the flat cartoon into three-dimensional Puppetoons often praised as some of the great works of stop-motion animation ever conceived. 

In 1987, working with Mrs. George Pal, Leibovit made The Puppetoon Movie. In 2013 an acclaimed HD restoration Blu-ray of that film was re-released and now for the first time Leibovit presents added Puppetoon masterpieces sourced from their Original 35mm Technicolor Successive Exposure Negatives (SEN) or 35mm (IB) Imbibition Technicolor Nitrate Prints.
