Dumbo in Israel
So, I've acquired two different Israeli VHSes of Dumbo.
From what I understand, the first one was released in the late 1980s or early 1990s and was the first home media release with the Hebrew dub. The second one was released in the mid to late 1990s and also contains the Hebrew dub from the first VHS release.
And as a special bonus, the seller who sold me the first VHS also included artwork from the late 1980s French VHS.
Have you ever received an offer that was too good to be true ? Well that's what happened to me recently... I've recently acquired the Hungarian VHS of Hercules for $15 USD, was in very good condition, and it shipped from the USA too ! However what I (or the seller) didn't notice is that the tape had some substance growing on the tape; that substance being dust or mold.
Now, this was the first Hungarian VHS I've seen on eBay and they're extremely rare to find. I've seen Icelandic VHS on eBay (that being Buzz Lightyear of Star Command : The Adventure Begins; which I've bought and I have it in my collection) and I've seen Arabic dubbed VHS tapes (I've only bought Toy Story in Arabic, which was the only one not selling for an outrageous $600 USD !!) But I've never seen a Hungarian VHS on eBay before; the VHS is also dubbed in Hungarian as well.
Hopefully the next Hungarian VHS that I will find won't be dirty; maybe it might be another Disney Hungarian VHS on eBay, but that's for fate to decide. :)
