Sometimes I wonder if reviewers even own the DVDs.

"(...) Having taped Jackie Chan Adventures on both Kids WB! and Cartoon Network, and having recently purchased all three JCA DVDs used (never pay retail!) I can WITHOUT A DOUBT say that these episodes are intact. Much like Cartoon Network does, this DVD plays the opening credits, the show, the ending credits. Kids WB! plays approx. 90 sec. of the episode (the intro), then the opening credits, then the rest of the show, and then the ending credits. For example in the first episode on the first DVD, the opening theme/credits are played, then the 90 sec. intro which takes place in the castle (it is this part which Kids WB! would play before the opening credits, then the scene changes to Uncle's shop and the rest of the episode continues. Where these DVDs really deviate is by playing one opening credit, all three episodes in "movie format", then all three "Ask Jackie" spots and finally a combined ending credits. Strangely, though they use the opening theme music during the end credits as adopted in later seasons NOT the "Chan is the Man" song originally used.(...).All JCA episodes on these DVDs are intact, though why Columbia/Tri-Star (Sony distributes the show, but not the DVDs) chose to go with the "movie format" instead of just a straight-forward Episode 1, Episode 2, etc. and then stopped making the DVDs with Episode 9 is beyond me. I would like to see a Season One, Season Two, Season Three, and Season Four box set (especially since JCA has been picked up for a fifth season), hence my only giving these DVDs three stars each."
WARNING!! WHOLE CARTOON NOT INCLUDED

"I recently purchased both vol 2& 3 of JCA on DVD. To my dismay, I discovered they did not include any of the preludes that set up the main story before they play the main title theme. The rest of the cartoon is the same, but it seems very abrupt to be thrown into the action with no set up. The proper order is prelude, main theme song, story. All of the preludes were not included. I'm going to return my copies back where I bought them."

"Jackie Chan adventures is very funny!! It will make you laugh your head off. Like when a doll comes to life of when Valmont shoots fire using the Dragon talasman. If you have a good sense of humor I would buy it."
