A lot of the Tom & Jerry shorts has been shown edited for television, video and DVD releases (recently the Warner releases in Europe - See the DVD Times review) but this Chinese boxset with 140 short is all unedited versions in both sound and picture. A few of the movies were made equally in CinemaScope and Academy ratio but none of the shorts here are widescreen, "Pet Peeve" seems to be the original fullscreen version while most of the other CinemaScope additions opens with MGM logo and title in widescreen and then goes to fullscreen.
The source seems to come from video, but most is in an acceptable condition - there is some print damage, some is a little washed out, faded colors etc. Some of the movies also have some visible compression artifacts, but I'm quite satisfied even it's not "Walt Disney Treasures" standard. The sound is good and clear, the audio is 5.1 but the same sound is distributed to all speakers (no seperation). Minor audio comes from the rear channels and it didn't distract me.
All the shorts on the 6 first DVD's open with a "Buddha video" logo instead of the MGM, while on the last 4 discs the original MGM logo appears.


I think this Chinese release is official and legit, all the major Chinese stores stocks it, for example the largest: (China's "Amazon").
No doubt that Warner will release these movies in USA with a better picture quality - lets hope it also is the unedited versions out of.

I was a little to quick to judge all the shorts unedited, according to a post at The DVD Forums there is 3 edited shorts: 

- The aforementioned removal of Mammy in Puss 'n' Toots:

- The version of Saturday Evening Puss presented is the one that has been re-animated to replace Mammy with a skinny white woman, and the voice has been dubbed over with an extremely bad performance by the usually good June Foray - In His Mouse Friday, the visuals are intact but the cannibals' voices have all been muted out (their lips still move though)"
