"Was so glad to find these cartoons finally released by a top-rate CO.....RHINO! GREAT cover too! I love these cartoons! Yes they were cheaply done by CAMBRIA and the live-action sequences were not the STOOGES at their BEST BUT they are fun and entertaining! Love the intro/closing and the theme song too!
Nice that they also included everything in complete one-hour episodes."
Great Picture Quality. A Must For Fans.

"Rhino's DVD release of "The New Three Stooges" cartoons from the 1960s is an absolute must for any Stooge fan.First of all, this collection contains the first sixteen stooge cartoons: That Little Old Bomb Maker; Woodsmen Bear That Tree; Let's Shoot the Piano Player; Dentist the Menace; Safari So Good; Thimk of Thwim; There Auto Be a Law; That Old Shell Game; Hold That Line; Flycycle Built For Two; Dizzy Doodlers; The Chicken Delivery Boys; Movie Scars; A Bull for Andamo; The Tree Nuts; Tin Horn Dude.These cartoons do not feature the greatest animation in the world (in fact, the animation makes "Clutch Cargo" look like "Wallace and Gromit"), but they're a must for Stooge fans. Even better than the cartoons are the live action wraparounds by Moe, Larry, and Curly Joe DeRita (who were all looking incredibly old by this point). While the wraparounds are not up the the standard set by the old Columbia shorts, they're still fairly amusing and a Stooge fan's dream.The picture quality of this release is amazing (at least compared to my muddy old videos). The colour on both the live action and animated segments is incredible, and they're both mostly free of grain. My only complaint is that the opening titles sequence is rather blurry.On the special features front, there's an interview with supervising producer Lee Orgel, who has some interesting tidbits about the Stooges and some interesting behind-the-scenes facts.All in all, if you're a Stooge fan, you NEED this collection of cartoons."
