Accordin' to the web pad "World Screen" and writer Miss Kristin Brzoznowski, STM Etertainment, purveyor of many classic TV shows, has inked an agreement with Inception Media Group to distribute "restored editions" of many of their holdings.

Among the "restored editions" of TV classics slated for fall release are "The Colgate Comedy Hour, starring Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis." If this means that the entire catalog of the Martin and Lewis Colgates are bein' restored as full programmes includin' musical selections...that will be extemely excitin' news for all us devotees of our great man.

Dino-philes have been waitin' forever for such Dino-releases. But, likes pallies with the disappointin' results of the recent release of the Time-Life Dino-discs of the Best Of The Dean Martin Show, one has to wonder if the Colgates will suffer the same kind of cuttin' and pastin' that the Dino-shows have received.

Anyway dudes, likes we can all hold our hopes up high that indeed these "restored editions" of the Colgates will be pristinely primo releases of full episodes. Thanks to the pallies at "World Screen" and particularly writer Miss Kristin Brzoznowski for sharin' this news with us.
