Thomas R.Reich: Cartoon Explosion

ANIMATION HISTORY Tom has worked with Technicolor to develop a State of the Art method to bring animation back to the brilliance and vibrancies of today’s animation.  This has translated Tom Reich’s products into millions of units sold throughout the world in such retailers as Wal-Mart, Best Buy, and Target to name a few. Tom has researched and brought back heavily damaged and rare lost cartoons back to commercial quality with over 400 film restorations of “Famous Studios”, “Van Buern Studios” and Fleischer Studios” with such creations as Popeye, Superman and Casper.  Tom has restored the only completed version of Gulliver’s Travels.  Tom’s “Feel the Sound” process which is used in his film restoration was developed by Tom and Dolby.  Tom developed a style of Foley Animation sound effects with two time Academy Award Winner, Mike Keeping.  This has the organic sound effects to seamlessly mix with the original sound effects that was done in the 1930’s, bringing them into the modern standards.

    me. Nonetheless, I’m definitely happy I found it and I’ll be book-marking and
    checking back often!

    You are by-far my source for classic animation, I don’t look anywhere else, you spend millions to restore these classics, and you make sure they sound as great as they look, keep up the great work, I’m proud to be friends with you and I consider you to be my hero and the hero of Max Fleischer’s animated classics, I own all three versions of “Gulliver’s Travels” on DvD, I can’t wait for Superman and what else you do. I’m looking forward to having a long and beautiful friendship with you. God bless you Dr. Reich. The savior of Classic Animated Cartoons and Features!!!!!!

      I am a fan of Dr. Reich too, have you ever seen his Famous Animation Directors series? Great stuff; also he did a restoration of Mr. Wonder Bird, which I think he re-titled “The Crumbling Kingdom” or something, for Good Times that never came out, I got a test copy of it and it was wonderful, Disney quality! I really think he got it looking better than Gulliver, but Good Times never put it out. I haven’t seen the Superman yet, but I am sure it is top notch!
