Like its predecessor, the second volume of Beany and Cecil cartoons was produced by Robert Clampett, Jr., and is a heartfelt outpouring of love from a son to a father. Bob Clampett's genius lay in his ability to find humor in virtually anything and the contagious joy he evoked in bringing it to the world. He was a remarkable, seemingly endless fount of ideas, from his beginnings at Warner Bros. Cartoons to his last days. Beany and Cecil was one of his greatest successes, and I watched it faithfully for years on television.

As I grew up and learned more about Bob, I viewed his Looney Tunes with awe; they took animation to places I didn't know it could go. He was graced with superior resources in his animators, his storymen, musical director Carl Stalling, and the best voice artist of all time, Mel Blanc. But it was Bob Clampett's synthesis of these strengths that resulted in some of the greatest Hollywood cartoons ever made.

Beany and Cecil is a gentler creature, aimed as it was at children, but the wit and endless stream of ideas are unmistakably there. Beyond the cartoons themselves is a treasure trove of bonus features that bring shape and dimension to the life of a great creative force. I thank Robert Clampett, Jr., for sharing with animation lovers everywhere the life story of his father, a titan in the world of entertainment.

It has been decades since I have seen the "Lost Work" of Bob Clampett. I am ecstatic that they will be included in this DVD set. The hand-puppet shows are also great nostalgia.

In these days when TV show sets are bare of any bonus material, it is GREAT that we are being treated to an abundance of bonus goodies from the Clampett Estate collection!

I just hope the Clampett estate will release volume 3 sooner than 10 years from now!

I had been waiting for so long to see a Beany & Cecil Cartoon. I must have been about 4 years old and remembering all these years these two characters even now at almost 50 years of age. I recently purchased this Vol. 2 Beany & Cecil show and was so excited to receive it. Upon watching just the first cartoon, I was catapulted back to my early childhood in a flash. What an incredible enjoyment I've had watching these cartoons which I had never even seen over the years in re-runs. I completly recomend buying this for yourself or for your grandchildren. They will love it too!

I have tried to watch for this to be released on DVD for so long. I didn't know they had done it. Watching it took me back to Saturday mornings when Saturday mornings were synonymous with cartoons. Dorky as it might appear now, it was awesome then. I even had the box game. A real find.

Most people buy cartoon DVDs because of childhood nostalgia. I was born in 1964, so I have no memory of watching B&C. But as a true CGA (Cartoon Geek of America), I read about the show and was curious after seeing a segment on Adam West's "Cartoons Lost and Found" special in 1989.

Truly great cartoons stand the test of time and age beyond the children who grew up with them. This is truly the case with the rollocking adventures of Beany Boy, his sea-serpent pal Cecil, his sea-traveling Uncle Huffenpuff, the crooked Dishonest John, and the Beatnik Go Man Van Gogh (voiced in most of these by the legendary Scat Man Crothers best-remembered for Chico and the Man and Hong Kong Phooey). These tales are hilariously funny and the charaacters are appealing. The humor crosses generations and is loaded with sly winks to adults (a Davy Crockett caricature blaks at a marriage proposal by saying, "Remember the Alimony!" The FBi is spoofed as "The FIB"-the notoriously humorless J. Edgar Hoover obviously missed this one).

Two episodes of the original "Time for Beany" puppet show from the early 1950s also appear with the original versions of the above characters. One wonders if the young Jim Henson was influenced by these for his very similar "Sam & friends" show a few years later. These protomuppets are not as slap-happy and fast paced as their 1960s cartoon counterparts due to the limitations of the art form, but they have a charm all their own and one could see why they captivated children AND adults (including Harpo and Groucho, Lana Turner, and even Albert Einstein who would interrupt meetings to watch the show)!

The DVD is also all about creator Bob Clampett and we get tons of extra features, including a 1946 Looney Tunes-esque cartoon "Its a Grand Old Nag.
