"This is the first cartoon collection that includes EACH AND EVERY episode in the series! 130 of 'em to be exact! So hats off to A&E! These cartoons are typical early 60's fare and 100% nostalgia. If you're looking for the fantastic art like early Fleischer, Disney or Warner Brothers, forget it. This is TV stuff...quickly made...not much detail...but it is very cool to see these cartoons that have been kept hidden for so many years. Courageous Cat is not your typical save-the-day, not-do-anything-wrong hero. He screws up on occasion, makes errors in judgement and is actually more of a regular guy trying to be a hero! I don't think it was intended that way, but that's how it comes across. Minute Mouse, on the other hand, could've been a lot better if they hadn't decided to use a high, irritating voice. The Frog, an Edward G. Robinson-type villain, is always fun to watch. Included is an essayed biography of Courageous Cat's creator, Bob Kane, creator of Batman (there are many similarities between these two characters). These cartoons are definitely flawed, but the nostalgia effect is wonderful. This is a wonderful addition to my personal collection and it should be in yours."
A blast from the (cat gun) past!!!

"When I read in Entertainment Weekly that this would be released,I knew it was a must have for my collection.Although this dynamic duo is a parody of Batman I always enjoyed laughing to the villians most of all froggy.This set brings back many childhood memories as these cartoons were popular in the 60's when I was growing up and nothing mattered except if the infamous cat and mouse would save the day each afternoon for us.The only drawback is that at 100 plus episodes it will take a while to view completely,but it is cool that you do get every single one at once and not divided into future sets."
