"I grew up when these shows were new and I remember them very well. I have no idea who chose the episodes for the DVDs, but they did a terrible job, especially on Howdy Doody, Flash Gordon and Andy's Gang. I remember Flash Gordon flying to a distant planet and confronting the Emperor Ming. The episode that was on the DVD wasn't anything like that. The episodes chosen for the other two shows were just as bad too, and I feel like I paid out all that money for nothing because I have no interest in watching any of the DVDs again. The only ones I half way enjoyed were Annie Oakley and Roy Rogers."

"I bought this for my parents (born in 1942 & '49) because there were many cartoons in this 4 disk set that they have talked about for years. This was a fun surprise for them - not a birthday gift or anything because I was afraid of exactly what did happen. The cartoons they remembered so fondly were really quite dumb. Once they got over their surprise, they watched more and had a great time laughing at them. Now they've let their friends borrow them and they are all laughing. Soon we'll take it to my in-laws.
Overall, they are glad they had the chance to see these again, but they can't ever imagine pulling this DVD out again so they are happy to just pass it around to everyone. It's a one-time watch so rent it or borrow it from the library if you can. If we ever get it back, we'll donate ours to the local library. For me, it was worth the $28 to see them laugh, but they said they'd never have paid that much for it."
