The Shows: Perfect. Making me sit through 8 minutes of usel

"Anybody who has ever seen any of the television shows contained in this set knows how cheesily good they are. It's not like I'm giving you information you don't already have. If this set was rated just on the merits of the content, five stars without a doubt.
However, making me sit through eight minutes of previews...not even previews...make that eight minutes of "behind the scenes" of some completely unrelated cartoon, complete with interviews, is absolutely insulting. I understand that the $5.99 DVD's at Wal-Mart are going to have previews, but even those allow you to bypass them with the menu button. Not here. Fortunately, this is just on the first dvd (Rudolph).
Whoever included the forced "behind the scenes" preview should be ashamed. This is a nicely boxed, very well executed collection of Christmas television shows, and tacking on a commercial to the front is just insane. How insulting!"
Great Classic set to own

"This set has 5 of the original Christmas classics.
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
Santa Claus is Comin' to Town
Frosty the Snowman
The Little Drummer Boy
I like 4 out of the 5. I would rather of had Frosty's Winter Wonderland than Frosty Returns. Frosty Returns is below the quality of the other 4 on this set. Frosty's Winter Wonderland is a much better match to the quality of the other videos to this set.
Otherwise this set is worth the money. My kids love watching the classics I grew up with."
THESE ARE CLASSICS AND SHOULD BE TREATED BETTER THAN THIS!

"This review would have 5 stars,but for the lack of care for these treasured classics. Especially Rudolph! Come on! Watching this is a yearly ritual for cryin' out loud! The prints are not that bad,but they are dirty and should have been cleaned up. It is a good collection,but there are a number of other Rankin & Bass classics yet to be released to DVD. Get on the ball and restore all of these old friends and put them out in a complete box set. You'll sell millions of these every year! for years to come!"
