Movie Reviews

A Trip back to Saturday Mornings with a mixture of new relea
Paul J. Mular | San Carlos, CA USA | 01/29/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a good cross-section of 1960's TV cartoons (& a few theatricals shown on TV) that are owned by Warner Brothers. Some of these are new to DVD, and this could be their only appearance on DVD. TV animation collectors will wonder why the double dip of TOP CAT, THE FLINTSTONES & THE JETSONS, but hey with the low price I am willing to jump past them (or just watch them again).
Where else are we going to see Peter Potomas, Breezly & Sneezy, Yippie & Yappie & Yahooie?

ATOM ANT SHOW with PRECIOUS PUP & HILLBILLY BEARS - Up & Atom / Precious Jewels / Woodpecked

SECRET SQUIRREL SHOW with SQUIDDLEY DIDDLY & WINSOME WITCH - Sub Swiper / Way Out Squiddly / Prince of a Pup
THE FLINTSTONES - The Happy Household (Also on the seasonal DVD sets)

Great Collection, But According to Warner it is Harmful to C
John W. Yocum | Lawrence, Kansas United States | 06/03/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"OK, I've had enough with Warner deciding whether cartoons from the past are good for us or not. First they edited the Tom and Jerry releases and kept several shorts from being released at all, then they started labeling cartoon collections with this: "This collection is intended for the Adult Collector and MAY not be suitable for children." This collection and the others in the series says this: Saturday Morning Cartoons - the 1960s is intended for the Adult Collector and is NOT suitable for children." What? Seeing a pig without pants is bad for kids? Atom Ant may make them think they have super powers and they could die jumping off a building? Give me a break, Warners. I'd much rather my children watch this than the stuff that's on TV today."
The Sixties Live Again!
Joseph Torcivia | Westbury, NY USA | 05/26/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Got my sixties set today, and watched most of the non-double-dip material - excluding Marine Boy, which I still feel seems out of place in this package.

The package has its faults with print quality (but a disclaimer is offered to mitigate that), some double-dipping, and no complete content listing outside of the individual disc menus - but, overall, IT IS WORTH IT!

The Porky Pig Show has opening and closing credits AND INTERSTITALS! The Magilla Gorilla Show has opening and closing credits - making it not a "true" double dip, as the Magilla "Complete Series" did not have these credits included anywhere in the set.

It features other shows I never thought I'd see on DVD like Peter Potamus, Atom, Ant, Secret Squirrel, and Frankenstein Jr. and The Impossibles!

Brief (average about 5 minutes each) but informative and entertaining features on Quick Draw McGraw, Frankenstein Jr. and The Impossibles, and The Herculoids with various animation figures including Paul Dini, Mark Evanier, and Earl Kress.

A true Who's Who of voicing, headlined by Mel Blanc, Daws Butler, Don Messick, Paul Frees, and all the top talents of the day!

And, it sure made me long for complete sets of Quick Draw McGraw and The Herculoids!

...Maybe this'll help pave the way!
Enjoyable blast from the past - but Warners effort isn't com
B. D. Sampson | Ottawa, Canada | 07/31/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I'm a big animation fan - especially of vintage TV animation - so seeing Warners releasing these packages looked to be a real treat, since it seemed unlikely that we'd get full sets of most of these characters. I applaud the fact that they're making these available at all. My problem is with the amount of effort put into finding decent masters or cleaning up what they have. We've seen what they can do with 50+ year old Looney Tune shorts. I'm at a loss why they can't take more time to clean up some of the scratches off some of the weaker films in these packages. One of the 2 Quick Draw shorts is so dark it's almost painful to watch. Do I think they could havve found better masters of done a better job cleaning things up, yes, but that would have taken time and money-and I don't think they want to put that kind of effort into a set like this. The short of Ricochet Rabbit has audio that speeds up and slows down-it's downright painful to listen to. The other major nitpick about these is that many of these shows had short transitional bumpers in between the cartoons(Secret Squirrel, Frankenstein Jr. & The Impossibles, Space Ghost, Etc.) that have been omitted. There are Volume 2 sets planned for the 60s & 70s that include both the Bugs Bunny Show, Road Runner Show & The Bugs Bunny Road Runner Hour. These transitional bumpers were an integral part of these shows and NEED to be included. This is what made those programs unique. I so hope Warners gets it right with the next volumes.
Now, this is not to say I'm not recommending this set-it's enjoyable. If you 'loved the shows-you still will, but if you're a completest - and want to see the shows as they originally aired, you won't find them here."
