This petition is for CBS Operations to release on DVD's all the Terrytoon Cartoons.

Terrytoons was an animation studio founded by Paul Terry. The studio, located in New Rochelle, New York, United States, operated from 1928 to 1968. Its most popular characters included Mighty Mouse, Gandy Goose, Dinky Duck, Deputy Dawg, Luno and Heckle and Jeckle; these cartoons and all of its others were released to theatres under the studio's solitary Terrytoons banner by 20th Century Fox.

When Paul Terry retired, the company sold to CBS in 1955, but 20th Century Fox (TCF) continued to distribute the studio's releases. The following year, CBS put it under the management of UPA alumnus Gene Deitch. Deitch's most notable works at the studio were the Tom Terrific cartoon segments for the Captain Kangaroo television show. He also introduced a number of new characters, such as Sick Sick Sidney, Gaston Le Crayon, John Doormat, and Clint Clobber.

After Deitch, in 1958, Bill Weiss took control of the studio. Under his supervision, Heckle and Jeckle and Mighty Mouse went back into production. In addition, the studio began producing the Deputy Dawg series for television in 1960. One of the notable talents at Terrytoons in the 1960s was animator/director/producer Ralph Bakshi, who got his start with Terrytoons in the 1950s and later helmed the Mighty Heroes series.

From 1930 to 1971 Terrytoons did over 824 cartoons and was nominated four times for the Academy Award for Animated Short Film: All out for V in 1942, My Boy, Johnny in 1944, Mighty Mouse in Gypsy Life in 1945, and Sidney's Family Tree in 1958.

For the sake of art preservations, we respectfully address CBS Operation to start releasing all the TerryToon Cartoons on DVD, to do some restoration if needed and to have interviews with the animators and work personnel of the time.

The list of all their productions are listed on this page: http://imdb.com/company/co0028853/
