"I know some people don't like these "reviews" where the person isn't actually reviewing the product, but this needs to be said. This release is weak, and it's what Warner Bros. seems to do best. This is my favorite new cartoon, and the episodes featured here are good. I don't own this release, but I don't have to to tell you it's a waste. This show deserves a season set, but instead we get this feeble, single disc release. There are a lot of good Cartoon Network shows that have not been released properly. Where is Dexter's Lab, Courage the Cowardly Dog, or Cow and Chicken? The only one that was given a good treatment was Powerpuff Girls. That came out as a complete series set, only after several single disc volumes and a first season set. Warner Bros. is the owner of a lot of good properties, which is lucky for them. It's unlucky for us, though, because they cannot seem to grasp the concept of giving the fans what they want. If Warner Bros. wants to be uptight about this kind of thing, I have a suggestion: Give Amazon permission to do the manufactured-on-demand DVD's, like what they've done with Rugrats and Doug. I'm sick of waiting for Warner Bros. to do the job right. It's tempting when a release like this Flapjack DVD comes out to just buy it. But instead, I know better. I'll wait for the season set, all the while knowing it probably will never come. Maybe there isn't enough demand for WB to put the time and effort into producing season sets. Fine. I understand they have a business to run. But there ARE people who would like to own such a set. So WB should let Amazon take over where they're too scared to. That way, the fans will get what they want, and Amazon and WB will make a profit. Everyone wins. But as long as WB keeps up this nonsense of single disc releases, the only one winning is them."

"Out of several cartoon shows that appear on Cartoon Network, The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack stands out. It is very unique and entertaining, just like Chowder.
The main characters of the show is a young adventure seeking and candy loving boy named Flapjack, and his maple syrup drinking pirate buddy Captain K'nuckles. Also we have the always protective and loving whale, Bubbie, who raised Flapjack since he was an infant.
The series follows the trio as they partake on adventures on Stormalong Harbor and beyond. Always seeking a way to get to Candied Island, or at least getting some free candy from Peppermint Larry.
The show has a great deal of entertainment value, but some may disagree with me. But all of us are entitled to our own opinion. Personally, I really like the show and its unique characters. The animation is different, plus like Chowder, it utilizes stop-motion animation!
Below is a list of episodes and special features that are included on The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack, Volume One.
1. Several Leagues Under The Sea/Cammie Island
2. Several Leagues Above The Sea/That's A Wrap
3. Lookin' For Love In All The Wrong Barrels/Beard Buddies
5. Capatain and ToeNeil (never seen it before, possibly wrong one listed or it may be a brand new never before seen episode)
- Adventures in Voice Acting Featurette
- Adventures in Animation Featurette
- Misadventures in Song Featurette
- Meet Thurop! Featurette
My advice, if your a fan of the series or if you actually like it, buy it. It's a good series with some interesting characters and unique animation. Pre-order your copy and enjoy!"

"My boyfriend and I watch the Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack every chance I get. We are 28 and 27 years old. Flapjack is hilarious and always puts us in a great mood. It's good, clean, silly fun...for the young AND the old! The puns are chuckle-worthy and the storylines, as crazy as they may be, leave you wanting more. If I were to compare Flapjack to any other cartoon, I would have to say it reminds me of the ever legendary Ren & Stimpy and/or Spongebob Squarepants. Whether you're in the mood for a haircut or surgery, or in desperate need for a maple syrup fix, Flapjack is the show to watch. I have been waiting for this DVD to come out for what seems like FOREVER. I plan on buying it as soon as it's released. May the spine-tickling entertainment of Flapjack live on for eternities to come!
P.S. Remember...Everything's comatose roses. ... Hahahahahahaa"
I don't care if this is for Kids, This Show is Hilarious

"This is by far the only show on Cartoon Network right now that is worth something. Cartoon Network has really gone down the drain latley, and its nice that This show can actually entertain and Make you laugh. Its just nice Sillyness. FlapJack and Knuckles are a odd pair, but It adds to the Funnyness, I will definently be buying this, and I hope Volume 2 Comes out Sooner than Later."
