(3 out of 5 stars)

"Famous Studios was to Paramount what Looney Tunes was to Warner Brothers and Disney was to...Disney, I guess. The Famous Studios cartoons, however, just weren't very good. The best were from Popeye, and other characters (Little Lulu, Baby Huey) had a few winners, but overall, the studio's output was sub-par. The best cartoons on this disc are Popeye's "Out to Punch" and the reasonably engaging bouncing-ball cartoon "The Mild West." ("The Mild West" is one that I fondly remember from my childhood, so I may be biased).
Unlike some of the DVDs from the Cartoon Crazys series, this one looks a bit smeary and scratchy, and some of the colours are faded. Like the rest of the Cartoon Crazys DVDs, new sound effects have been added, and they strike me as being a little on the distracting side. Included on the DVD is some interesting information about Famous Studios."
