4.0 out of 5 stars CATCH THAT PIGEON!!! May 4, 2005
Format:DVD
This classic cartoon, commonly known as "Stop That Pigeon" among young viewers over the years, first debuted on September 13, 1969 on CBS and subsequently aired on and off in syndication over the years. I first saw the series growing up in the 80s.

The stars of the series are Dick Dastardly and his snickering canine sidekick Muttley (who always muttered his signature "rassuh-frazza-pazza). The duo was first introduced in 1968 as part of the ensemble cast of Wacky Races (which received a similar dvd treatment from Warner Bros. Home Video last year). Along with the rest of the Vulture Squadron (fellow dimwitted pilots Zilly and Klunk), they use WWI aircraft in an attempt to follow the orders of "The General." Those orders being: STOP THAT PIGEON!

The show is somewhat reminiscent of Road Runner, with the Vulture Squadron filling the Wile E. Coyote role. The outcome is similar too, with Dastardly and co. failing spectacularly in each episode to stop the pigeon.

Dastardly's voice, and that of The General, were done by Paul Winchell, whose other roles include Winnie the Pooh's friend Tigger, Zummi Gummi and Marmaduke. The legendary Don Messick (famous for his work as the voice of Scooby-Doo), did Muttley as well as the other members of The Vulture Squadron.

The half-hour show originally consisted of two Dastardly/Muttley adventures, a brief segment in which Muttley daydreamed about adventures of his own, and a few quick, unrelated gags. All 17 episodes are included in this set.

By J. Rose
Format:DVD
Dastardly and Muttley crash into your TV screen once again in this DVD set, the second offspring of Hanna-Barbera's much-loved WACKY RACES. The triptych of WACKY RACES, DASTARDLY AND MUTTLEY IN THEIR FLYING MACHINES and THE PERILS OF PENELOPE PITSTOP were heralds of Hanna-Barbera's return to zany slapstick comedy in the Sixties.

This show began life as STOP THAT PIGEON, a series about a kooky flying squadron whose mission is to stop a carrier pigeon. Dastardly and Muttley were brought into this series due to their popularity from WACKY RACES, and the final product makes it easy to see why this villainous duo command such a loyal fan base. Although Dastardly and Muttley are not particularly nice people, one gets the sense that they are not really evil either: as the designated Bad Guys of WACKY RACES, D&M cheated, plotted, schemed, double-crossed and booby-trapped simply because it was their job.

Dick Dastardly (voiced by Paul Winchell, one of only two voices for every character in this series) is now the commander of a World-War-I-era flying force known as the Vulture Squadron, consisting of Muttley (growled, snickered and cursed by Don Messick), whose job in this series is mainly to rescue Dastardly from crashing to the ground (though not without the promise of a medal), maniacal inventor Klunk, who dreams up and builds various absurd-looking planes and speaks in sound effects, and craven coward Zilly, who translates for Klunk and tries repeatedly to sneak off at crucial points (such as the beginning of a flight). Their mission, ordered by an unseen General, is to catch the fearless patriotic flyer Yankee Doodle Pigeon (who, compared to his colorful enemies, seems rather boring).

4.0 out of 5 stars magnificent muttley July 20, 2007
Format:DVD
Brings back memories of my childhood when my only worry was getting that second bowl of Sugar Frosted Flakes . I loved the cartoon then, and I love it still. I can't help but laugh when Don Messick does the famous Muttley wheezy snicker . Also amazing to think that he and the great Paul " Tigger Mahoney " Winchell were the only voices in the cartoon .
Maybe I am an old fart , but I think the H-B cartoons are still the best
compared even to today's computer generated shows.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome classic March 29, 2008
Format:DVD
I just watched the set, and still find myself enjoying the show as I did when I was a kid. Muttley is so freaking funny, and that laugh... I am still puzzled why the show didn't last long.

5.0 out of 5 stars STOP THAT PIGEON!!!! December 30, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Fresh from Wacky Races, Dick Dastardly and his dog, Muttley are now taking to the skies. Their mission, to stop Yankee Doodle Pigeon from delivering his messages. With cowardly Zilly and incomprehensible-but-inventive Klunk in tow, one would think this mission's in the bag, right? Wrong. Watch as Dastardly and his Vulture Squadron concoct elaborate planes and plans to 'Stop that pigeon' and fail with disastrous, yet hilarious results.

With this as the premise of 'Dastardly and Muttley in their Flying Machines,' Hanna-Barbara continues the simple formula of basic plot (the Vulture Squadron's attempts to stop the pigeon and failing), slapstick gags in self-contained episodes. Added to the mix are side stories and gags in the form of "Wing-dings," self-contained shorts of gags and jokes, and "Magnificent Muttley," a series of companion shorts that focuses on Muttley daydreaming he's a hero, getting the better of Dastardly.

The quality of the episodes are clean and crisp. The dvd menu has a funny little sideshow of the Vulture Squadron chasing the pigeon back and forth. There are are number of bonus features including:

The Vulture Squadron's Greatest Misses: A series of highlight reels of the squadron members in their more hilarious blunders, quips and epic fails to catch Yankee Doodle Pigeon.

Dastardly & Muttley Spinoffs: What Wacky Races Wrought: A retrospective with animation veterans Iwa Takamoto and Jerry Eisenberg(designers for this series) and Scott Jeralds (of Warner Bros. Animation) concerning how the success of Wacky Races soon landed Dastardly and Muttley in their own spin-off series.

Commentaries on 2 episodes: Episodes 11 and 15

Whether you grew up watching this or many of the other Hanna-Barbara cartoons, or are looking for countless laughs, you can't go wrong with Dastardly and Muttley in their Flying Machines. Whoever thought to bring this series to dvd deserves a medal!
