Movie Reviews

The competition never stops when you have these DVDS
Robin Orlowski | United States | 07/31/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"My younger brother and I watched this cartoon growing up in the 1980s. Because it wasn't a superblockbuster (GI JOE..etc) I am glad that it is being released on DVD.

Even though we never figured out why Iggy Nutmeg (the young boy in the "Heathcliff" segments) always was dressed up while Jennifer went casual and Grandma and Grandpa also looked (for their generation) informal, the series was great. Heathcliff was a cat who lived with the Nutmegs and, although generally well behaved, and wanting to impress his girlfriend Sonia (also a cat) got into trouble around the neighborhood.

He obviously wasn't content with being just a housecat because Heathclif was always cooking up some kind of 'get-rich-quick' scheme, but the family always forgave him and loved him exactly for who he was.

I loved the car which the Cadilac Cats had, it litterally changed into anything. Sure they lived in a junkyard and knew how to fend for themselves if need be, but the Cadilac Cats weren't hooligans. They were usually well-mannered cats and their leader Rif-Raf, honestly wanted nothing more than to be with his beloved Cleo, who worked at a music store. Plus (again to the perspective of a little kid) their makeshift house from an old airplane looked really cool.

I hope that whoever took the initiative to bring the series to DVD also included the theme song. Many years later, the lyrics and beat are still memorable."
A Great Reissue thats done right!

"Finally a good eighties reissue!! This set actually is everything from the original episodes! From the theme song to the right back to the episode clips everything is here just like it was back in '84/'85 minus the commercials ;) Seems most cartoons from the eighties that have recently come out on dvd are missing key parts such as proper opening closing credits voice changes and other bad annoying things. But, fear not this set is exactly is how they were shown back then! This is one of the few cartoons that wasn't out every Saturday (then in the late eighties everyday in the afternoon) that wasn't messed up because there was no toys to dictate how the show should be made vs action toy cartoons (i.e. thundercats is a good example of that.) One can enjoy watching this in nostalgia of your childhood while enjoying it with your children now! Kid's of today and yesterday will find Heathcliff and the Riff Raff Gangs escapades quite enjoyable and funny! Oh yeah they even include the pet tips on this which is cool too!
Cartoons you don't find anymore

"i loved heathcliff growing up. the show always made me is a shame that the cartoons of today are nothing like what i watched growing up.Heathcliff is a cat that thinks he owns the street where he lives with family. Heathcliff gets into all kind of trouble. the second half of the show is with the catillac cats who live at the dump on heathcilffs street. the gang is run by Riff Raff who has the hots for Cloe who lives in a music shop with a dog named Butch. Between heathcliff and riff raff you never no what is going to happen."
Quality Issues On An Otherwise Great Cartoon
Michelle Ilisa | 07/28/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I was so excited to find out HeathCliff and the Catillac Cats, one of my favorite cartoons from the 1980's was released on dvd. After viewing some of the episodes I found that they were still as entertaining as I remembered them.
Now for the problems, the picture quality could be much better. The picture has these little flicks of black and white lines in them that come and go very rapidly.(I can't think of any other way to describe them).Also, some episodes from the first disk have a wavy like appearence in the backround on the left hand side in a few scenes. I know these issues are not due to a defective copy as several people I know have copies that due the same thing. If you are willing to overlook these small problems and you love Heathcliff then I would recommened buying this DVD set."
