It's very standard stereo quality that you'd expect from a 90's cartoon.

Bobby's World debuted in 1990, as part of the FOX Kids lineup. It is also the longest running (in reference to how long it lasted, not how many episodes it had) FOX Kids show on the network, lasting 8 seasons and 81 episodes in total; although the DVDs being sold on Amazon has 7 seasons total...don't be alarmed, all 81 episodes are still presented. The show is about the very imaginative adventures of Bobby Generic (pronounced JEN-a-rick, not jin-AIR-ick...a running joke on the show). It was created by Howie Mandel (Deal or No Deal; current judge on America's Got Talent).

How does the show hold up in today's world? Surprisingly well. Don't expect miracles from a soon-to-be 22 year old show, but it serves its purpose well, and its purpose is to entertain. I grew up with this show, being 3 when it debuted, and I watched it until it ended in 1998 (I was 11 in 1998). I still had a lot of fun watching it at 24. I have a younger brother and sister who would also enjoy the show, so there are a lot of benefits to be gained with a show like Bobby's World.

Video Quality: 2.5/5

The episodes are presented in their original aspect ratio of 1.33:1. That's one good thing, at least. The quality, though, is a mess. Very noticeable scan lines on some scenes, dirt, debris...the works. I wasn't expecting miracles for a show from 1990, but I've also seen VHS that looked better than this. All is not a total loss, though. Episodes, for the most part, are very much watchable, and some scenes do look just fine.

Audio Quality: 3/5

The episodes are presented in Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo, at 192 kbps. The audio quality is just fine, for the most part. It's very standard stereo quality that you'd expect from a 90's cartoon. Nothing more, nothing less.

There is nothing bad at all to say about Bobby's World. My sister and I used to watch the show ALL the time on TV when we were kids. It was by far a favorite and we were very bummed when they took it off air.

There is one episode we both will always remember, and we frequently would joke about it bringing up old memories. I happened to stumble upon this DVD set of season 1 while I was shopping on here to find my sister a birthday gift. I knew this was PERFECT and would hit home!

She was beyond excited to receive this as a gift. And it doesn't matter how old you are- when you can pop in a DVD of one of your favorite childhood shows and watch them again, over and over, today or any other day- the memories never fade and it has brought nothing but smiles and a lot more laughs watching a classic show we used to together years ago.

This is still a great children's show. I recommend purchasing this set for anyone who used to watch the show when they were younger and remembers how fun it was. And for anyone younger, though this show was before their time, it is still a great cartoon for kids and one they can love & appreciate.

Great DVD set, makes for a good gift and so much fun for a trip down memory lane with lots of laughs. :)

It was a nice trip down memory lane for my 26 and 20 year old. It has a good lesson learned story line, and Howie Mandel is hysterical as Bobby. I would give it a try for kids.

I loved Bobby's World when it used to come on TV years ago. My young son reminds me a lot of Bobby with his inquisitive mind. You can actually see my son's wheels churning as you speak with him about everyday things. I thought that getting the CD would be nice for him. I was right, he loves them.

I love this cartoon because it's funny for both children and adults. There are references to things that only adults would understand (not bad things...just puns and things like that), which makes it enjoyable for adults, too. I actually bought the episode for me - not my daughter - because I remember watching it when I was younger and really liking it. I haven't shown it to my daughter, yet, but I'm sure she'll probably like it, too. I would recommend this product to anyone with younger kids (around 4 to 8), but I also recommend watching it with them because it's pretty funny.
