"The people have WinStar have done it again. Have they NO shame? Once more, they've dubbed in LOUD, obtrusive sound effects that RUIN the experience of watching great cartoons. And you can't turn 'em off; you are stuck with the sound of a mallet hitting a board every time Popeye takes a step.This collection is a disgrace and should be pulled from the market until somebody with RESPECT for the original animated treasures releases them. I will NEVER purchase another WinStar DVD release."

"Customers, BEWARE! The ugly packaging should be a warning sign of the quality of this DVD. First the transfers are inconsistant, and do not look like first rate orignals. Second, why did the packagers find it necessary to tamper with the original soundtracks? Their amateurish attempts to "enhance" the sound only muffles it, and is mostly out of sync! Although a noble idea to give tribute to this great animation pioneer, the selection of films was not done with much thought or careful research....

"With Winstar's resources, it is amazing that they have managed to asemble such an atrosity. The material is haphazardly selected with inconsistant quality. First, the transfers appear to have been taken from other tape sources. The OUT OF THE INKWELL examples are so contrasty they aren't watchable. One of the color cartoons appears to have drop out from the tape source. Another has a horizontal picture weave that does not appear in the others. Some have a flicker, suggesting a flaw in the video engineering. For a DVD, the customer deserves better.The BETTY BOOP cartoons have clearly been lifted from the Republic releases, with an attempt to disguise them with a still of the framed mountain motif sans Paramount logo lettering. But most of all, their "feel the sound" concept muffles the original soundtrack, and is just a bad attempt at replacing the existing sound effects with new ones that are too loud. Everything sounds like a bowling ball dropped in one's face--and not even in sync at that! Winstar is taking a chance with some of these titles since the international copyrights are in effect, and Paramount is taking such bootleg distribuors to court. The buyer needs only to look at the badly designed cover to know what is inside. There is superior product on Fleischer Studios on the market. This is not it!"
All about bypassing public domain

"these are basically reworked with cheezy new soundtracks etc so that they don't fall into the public domain, as they should. get the originals in a decent format instead!"
