Yep, I'm already planning on getting this, because it has "I Love to Singa," for starters.

I'd love to find the Road Runner/Wile E. Coyote episode that features the "Indestructo Ball." One of the most hilarious sequences from that whole series.

I'm deprived! I don't have ANY cartoon dvd box sets!

Not surprising. I've never been much into cartoons, even as a lad. Comic books is another story. . . .

Gotta love the Internet yet again--I did a search and discovered that the Indestructo Steel Ball comes from a 1959 cartoon entitled "Wild About Hurry." Unfortunately, it's not on either of the Looney Tunes DVD box-sets.

There is, however, an online catalogue for all ACME products!

I may get one to watch the Rocky and Bullwinkle sets. Are they still as funny as I remember them to be?

Another shout out to the Critic. I was able to rent the whole series on Netflix. I had forgotten that Marty's son went to the UN High School. There are some classic laughs related to this, including the son falling in love with Castro's grand-daughter.

I've seen some Gumby but not a complete edition.

BTW, I believe Rocky and Bullwinkle season 2 just hits stores. I saw it in Target yesterday, though I might have been hallucinating from jetlag.

Yes. we picked ours up at Target today. I don't know about anywhere else, but here in Arlington, Target is selling it for $24.99. When you consider this is a 4-DVD set, with each DVD having stuff on both sides thereby making this the equivalent of an 8-DVD set, this is a steal!!!

And yes, it is still just as funny!!!

Oh yeah, there's plenty of gems MIA. I'm guessing this is gonna be an annual thing (didn't the last set come out about the same time last year?), so that'll give us something to look forward to!

In any event, I'm really looking forward to the pre-1948 cartoons. Hopefully, when they say "restored," they mean that the Blue Ribbon notations have been removed and the original openings to each cartoon restored. I just hope, HOPE, that they left the old Looney Tunes in black & white, the way they're meant to be seen!

Me, I'm just tickled there's all those Road Runner cartoons!!! :excited::excited::excited:

I took your advice and bought this in Target. Good price! Did they change the music cues though? Sure seems like it. :(

By the way, I bought some DVDs for my brother-in-law for Christmas last year from Deep Discount DVD

http://www.deepdiscountdvd.com/

and had good service from them. I think you'll like their prices and their selection.

Not sure; haven't had a chance to really sit down and watch it. Which music cues are you referring to?

The connecting and beginning ones for each episode; for instance, the music playing when Rocky jumps off the high-dive board and flies around in the air while Bullwinkle lugs the water tub all over the place.

I read they use Season 2's beginning because it was Jay Ward's favorite. Don't forget, the first 2 seasons it was called The Rocky Show. Then, i think, it switched networks & became The Rocky & Bullwinkle Show. I think that's the beginning your thinking of. It looks like they used the first season opening (I'm guessing here) on the last 2 stories in the season 2 box. I say that because of the crudeness of the drawings.

You’re correct that there is some change. If you look closely on the 1st Season, when they do the Rocky & Bullwinkle intros, the lettering for “Rocky and Bullwinkle and Friends” is clearer than everything else in the picture. It looks though the new lettering was superimposed over the old lettering. To be sure, I checked an old video of the show, and sure enough, THAT intro was called “Rocky and Bullwinkle.” I don’t know if that’s the original: for all I know, that one also could’ve been superimposed! I don’t know why they couldn’t just leave it in its original state! Even the voice-over sounds a little different: like they over dubbed the “and Friends” part.

Ah well; nit-picky details, to be sure. Everything else about the DVDs, especially the sound quality, is fantastic!

Not meaning to nitpick, but...the first two seasons the show was called "Rocky and His Friends" and was shown twice a week (Tuesdays and Thursdays in DC where I lived at the time). It was syndicated.

It then (I think this was 1960, maybe '61) moved to ABC where it was called "The Bullwinkle Show", and was shown Sundays at 6:00 pm as I recall (I lived in Seattle then).

It is also my vague recollection that they were inconsistent in the titles of the cartoons after they moved to ABC, sometimes carrying the name "Rocky and Bullwinkle", and sometimes "Bullwinkle and Rocky", but that may not be correct.

Cool! :tup:)

If nothing else, the DVDs make the titles consistent!

I promised my son I wouldn't watch season 2 without him, and that we'd spend the evening tonight (Friday night) watching it. So I'll have an answer about those music cues then.

I watched some of season 1 tonight, and all the music cues are as I remember them. Bear in mind, though, that I was born ten years after this stuff premiered, so I have no idea what it all originally looked or sounded like! :w

You didn't ever catch repeats of the show?

I was born during, I believe, the third season, and can remember watching repeats of it back in '66, '67, '68, and so on. The thing is that it seems a lot funnier as an adult because you get all the jokes, but kids still love it. (In that sense, it was sort of The Simpsons of its time.)

I'm an anime fan, so I enjoy the Sailor Moon season 1 set, the Neon Genesis Evangelion set and the Tenchi Muyo! OVA set (original video animation)
