        >>Dr Syn, Alias the Scarecrow, I know nothing of this....can someone fill me in?<<

        "Dr Syn, Alias the Scarecrow" is the theatrical cut title for three "Scarcrow of Romney Marsh" episodes first shown domestically on "Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color". Starring Patrick MacGoohan ("The Prisoner", "Thomasina"), Scarecrow is a populist vigilante/smuggler/bootlegger - - a man of the people against the system (in this case King George) in the tradition of Zorro and Swamp Fox. Syn is a vicar by day and a terrifying Scarecrow by night. Great theme song. These shows were extremely popular in the 60's and 70's to the point of warrenting a theatrical re-release in 1975.

        Walt Disney Home Video got amnesia about this title in the 80's and all the good prints eventually faded away to nothing. After Vault Disney went away, so did the title. No one wanted to pay for restoration. But finally it has happened! And I understand MacGoohan has done an extensive interview for the set!

        A great title with a loyal following of baby boomers.

          I saw Destino at an art Exhibit here in LA. It's like 10 minutes long, how can they make that into a valuable experience worth paying full price for? Adding documentaries? That seems like a rip off to me.

              I've still got my Super 8 Sound Color Film reel of "The Mysterious Dr. Syn"...sold by Walt Disney Home Movies (a division of WEDEMCO...Walt Disney Educational Media Company) back in the 1970's.

              Now...if I only still had a projector...I wouldn't have to wait!

                Dr. SYN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                One of my favorite movies (series) as a child. Even watched the Super 8mm short reel (no audio) countless times.

                Wow.....to see it fully restored and to hear his character's maniacal laugh again....November can't come soon enough!

                  Dr Syn shows up at "bootleg" dvd tables at Horror conventions a lot. It's also available on ioffer (think eBay with less rules.)

                  I am glad I held off giving money to someone for an unathorized copy now that a authentic copy is being released.

                  On a side note I wish they had released the theatrical compilation film of El Fuego Baca on the DVD release they put out last year.

                    Dr. Syn sounds like a really cool series, plus I can't wait for Destino.

                        My first intro to Dr. Syn (Scarecrow) was oddly enough the now cancelled Disney Adventures Comic Zone section. They had a comic strip series about this character, had no idea why they were doing it... later I found out who this character was.

                        I also am curious as to the DVD release of Destino. I saw it at the Fantasia concert at the Hollywood Bowl and everyone was quite speechless at what we just saw, haha. Definately worth a 2nd and 3rd look at this animated short. But yeah, then the disc is filled with a bunch of bonus features to fill it up... huh?

                        I definately get Donald. How many more Volumes are they gonna squeeze out of him? Is this the last or is there a 5th volume??

                            I love it! Nice job, skunkwerx. Great atmosphere.

                            It would be fun to see a long version - with this tease as a lead in (perhaps featuring an English accented voice-over), add "Walt Disney Presents" or "Walt Disney's" to the "Dr Syn" logo - - and finish up with the whole "Scarecrow" song/music video!

                            Nice teaser!

                              sounds like some good releases. I have disneyland secrets stories and magic. none of the others though.
