I did the same thing Randy did and got the same automated response, more
than a month after I emailed them! That response also listed a Hayley
Mills Collection (March 3, 1998), Don Knotts Collection (April 21,
1998), The Wonderful World of Disney Collection (May 19, 1998), and The
Animal Adventure Series (August 4, 1998). Hmmm, have decided what
collection to release in June or July yet?
There is hope that a second or subsequent inquiries about our popular
movie might get the attention of a human operator because the response
included the statement:
"... you are welcome to resubmit your inquiry to our department and we
will do our very best to get back to you as quickly as we can."
Why not a Fred MacMurray collection? Mr. MacMurray made 7 movies for
Disney that I am aware of (The Shaggy Dog , The Absent Minded
Professor , Bon Voyage , Son of Flubber , Follow Me
Boys , The Happiest Millionaire , and Charlie and the angel
). Surely that is enough movies to warrant a collection release!
Keep those emails flowing to Disney, folks. Talk up "Follow Me Boys"
and a Fred MacMurray Collection release with "Follow Me Boys" as one of
the selected movies. Be patient waiting for a response. Like I said, my
response came more than a month after I emailed them. My second email
response may come back quicker, hopefully after a "human" has
intervened. With patience and constant pressure (emails), we can move
mountains (or even the Disney folks!)
