Ouch. Bad disc sleeve packaging.

"Love the Flintstones. Have been waiting for a nice priced complete set. Unfortunately the paper sleeves for the discs WILL end up scratching the dvds. Im sure some will be scratched upon purchase . So I will get the single sets. I recommend people buy those instead. Much nicer cases and only about about $15.95 more (105.94 for all the single sets) than that the silly looking box the complete set comes in. Course Im still giving it four stars for the episodes.
UPDATE: The regular sets have now been put back to their regular price of around $32. So its not so good a deal anymore. I guess you could wait for them to be on sale again or just take your chances with the complete set. Plus theres no new bonus material so the only thing your getting EXTRA is the UGLY ORANGE BOX. This set is basically the orignal six season sets repackaged. Again I think its best to wait for good prices on the single sets. The packaging is much more convienent."
Okay set but has it's flaws

"Just received the set and it's okay being the whole series is here but it's no different from the original 6 sets. I would have liked it better if they included maybe a book or something besides the disks like the Batman Animated series box set does.
It mentions 4.5 hours of extras leading me to believe they added more extras but that's not the case. The extras are the same as in the individual sets.
Packaging comes in 2 booklets made of cheap cardboard with very tight sleeves to insert the disks. This can and will cause some scratches on the disk being it's tight. About half my discs do have visible scratches on them. The booklets are nice with just the episode titles of each disc listed on them.
I hate the ugly orange case so i got rid of it and kept the 2 booklets.
So i give a 3 star rating for the content, and minus 2 stars for lack of anything extra from the original sets.
What a dumb idea

"I saw this set advertised and thought wow all the Flintstones in 1 box. Now that I have it I am very disappointed on how the dvds are stored. They are put in cardboard sleeves and if you take them out even once you will put scratches on them and I find this unacceptable.

"the flintstones;the complete series is a must have for those who love classic cartoons or for those who have small children and want to show them what 'real cartoons' are. i highly recommend this series. the only problem is that the discs are hard to get out of the cardboard sleeves that make up the 'book' that they are packed in. seems like the discs will scratch easily. for that reason i give the flintstones a 4."
