Don't have much faith (at all) in Classic Media, but this is one of the few series they didn't royally screw up when they did release it.

At least something's happening.

It's about damned time. I've been waiting for Season 4 to be released--I really wanted to see those last 13 or so Fractured Fairy Tales, and remaining Dudley Do Rights and Peabody and Shermans.
That's why I never touched "THe best of Rocky and Bullwinkle" because it's just not a show without all those extras.

Does this mean I'll get "The Banana Formula" finally?

Intresting, Classic Media seems to have the heart at right place when it comes to releasing the old material but they have that bad habit of quickly produce the sets i.e finding the easyest prints able. ala that Harveytoons set. Maybe some on should sent them a post and tell them to contact Jerry Beck and check if they are intrested in makeing more complete set of Harveytoons than we actually got back in 2006. But the news of the Bullwinke though are intresting, I will keep eye on that one for sure.

I am glad these sets are being made, all it needs now are the original titles and cereal plugs... I am a Bullwinkle fan, maybe not a big fan but watching them is a lot of fun.

August is now going to be a spendy month for DVD's. However, between the Looney Tunes discs and the Bullwinkle set, this is all that's going on right now for classic cartoon releases.

The guy they need to talk to is Keith Scott, who wrote THE book on Jay Ward and co: "The Moose That Roared". He also voices Bullwinkle in modern productions and is pretty much the go-to expert on the series.

Don't want to get carried away or anything, but I remember hearing over a year ago how Entertainment Rights was bought/taken over by the original founders of Classic Media and some were hopeful they would improve things. Nothing has happened so far, but now we finally hear about this release. Perhaps its a sign of things to come, like a season 5 Bullwinkle release, and, dare I think it, a real Underdog and/or Tennessee Tuxedo release? Okay never mind, that's crazy talk :shame:

Finally!!!! I hope Season 5 follows soon after, that was always one of my faves with the Pottsylvania Creeper, Lou's on 92nd Street and Wossamotta U storylines! Does this officially render those single disc character releases by Sony Wonder useless now?
