Cat Carson Rides Again
Northwest Mousie
Surf And Sound


They're all the same length as the other cartoons on the set, so I would guess they are complete here.

Adding "Katnip's Big Day" to that list of clipshows!

I'll check again in my own archives, but if I buy this, it combined with the PD DVDs will help me personally as I would end up having ALL of the Hermans.

From Thad's review: "It’s fair to say that everyone would agree that the MGM team’s best moments were behind them when H&K broke free from the Noveltoons and got their own series in 1952."
Hate to be a broken record here, but I disagree with that statement. I happen to like "Johann Mouse".

No offense, but this is one of the many reasons why I'm not looking over to your next review. It's ironic how you call the Hanna-Barberra Tom and Jerry series formalic at a certain time as this how I feel about these reviews.

I've been watching a lot of these cartoons lately. My favorite has to be Mice-Capades, with a story from arguably Famous' best story man, Irv Spector.

So the DVD is pretty much crap. Well, I'll still get this anyway because I would own 99.9% of the Hermans (I checked my archive, and I'm just off by one PD cartoon:eek:). Hey! It's better than not being out at all. Hopfully Little Audrey and Baby Huey are up next.

As "Drinks on the Mouse" is edited, I'll pass. Why Classic Media didn't go to "Shout Facorty!" for help on this set is beyond me.

My bad, I noticed from the screen caps that the set includes 33 cartoons, not 32. That means these cartoons are about 18¢ each!

And Woody, I think you mean Shout Factory.



yes, I meant Shout, I sometimes make ridiculous spelling errors, but sometimes it might be understandable since my first langue is not American English or British English for that matter.

I think this not too bad of a deal given the lack of job done on original titles, and lack of job done on edited cartoon all though it sounds like only one.

Unless its Shout Factory that has to go to them. It will be interesting to see the Caspar set for comparison.
