I saw all these cartoons on my local PBS station. The same stuff as you will get on this 2 disk DVD package
First the bad news...Tom and Ray Magliozzi seem to dumb down their radio personas and tried to milk their Click and Clack characters in this cartoon. The pilots are paper thin. The animation is drawn so badly, you wonder if the animators drew their characters out of the line purposely.
Now the good news...It is cute cartoon for kids. To have good family entertain is a rare thing and should be patted on the head. It has a sugar sweetness that adults can enjoy with the kids. Some of the lines are pure groiner for adults but kids will laugh at the Tappets wholeheartedly.
Will Tom and Ray be the next cartoon superstars? I truly doubt it. But they can try! I will still listen to both of you on Car Talk for my laughs!
it is great to get for family viewing..so buy it for the kids and watch it with them!

For the Nay-sayers:
1. This is a cartoon. It is meant to be goofy and not taken seriously.
2. When was the last time you turned to PBS to watch cartoons and comedy? British humor (oxymoron) doesn't count.
3. One can compare the artwork of this DVD to "The Lion King: The Musical". As one reviewer wrote about the musical, the story and music are great once you get past the costumes.
4. Get real expectations. When listening to "CarTalk", the fun is trying to guess the caller's auto/relationship problem. The humor is secondary. With cartoons, the intellectually part of your brain is not required. How much intelligence is needed to watch "The Flintstones", "The Little Mermaid", or "The Simpsons"?
5. Story lines are simple. Doh! Cartoons are designed to numb the brain from reality of life.
For others looking for positives:
1. You have to WATCH each episode. There is background humor that takes place in the artwork. For example: one of the books is titled: "Fundraising: From B.C. to Barack". Some of the humor follows the approach used in "Police Squad in Color". Too many people use television as background noise as opposed to actual entertainment.
2. If you love the wise-cracks from "CarTalk", you will love each episode. The humor is steadily paced. These guys grew up in the era of Abbott and Costello. The humor of this time period took a little time to set-up and is not rapid fire. Current humor is designed for the ADHD viewer: How many jokes can one insert into a sentence. Sit back, take your Ritalin or Focusyn tablet, and enjoy the show.Read more ›

This is the most ill-conceived garbage every conceived by PBS - they must've been desperate, and after the show was canceled I hope they fired the goobs responsible.Published on July 4, 2009 by A reader
