Alas there is "no reason" where studios are concerned. The new AOL regime at
Warners appears more bottom line but you would THINK the cartoons would be
a gold mine for them. They also put out more silents on LD and video
than all other Major Studios COMBINED ( which is kind of cheating since only
Paramount actually put any out other than WB) Anyway don't drive yourself
crazy ever trying to figure out the logic of studios.
