Season 4 arrived today and it is more of the "good stuff" you Jay Ward fans know and love. All or the Dudley Do-Right shorts are now officially on DVD (assuming you have R&B seasons 1-2-3 and the "best of DDR" DVD. That's a plus for me cause I love DDR.
Go ahead and pick this one up and MAYBE Classic Media will give us more in the "NOT TOO DISTANT FUTURE".

Rocky and Bullwinkle and Friends: The Complete Season Four

(Released August 17, 2010 by Vivendi Classic Media)
Another Looong DVD Review by Joe Torcivia

Let's get this matter out of the way up front. The TWO ORIGINAL television programs from which this material is culled were titled: ROCKY AND HIS FRIENDS, followed by THE BULLWINKLE SHOW.

If ever there were a show called "Rocky and Bullwinkle" - or "Rocky and Bullwinkle and Friends" - it would have been something cobbled together for syndication.

And "cobbled together" may be the best way to describe the attempts to recreate a fifty-year old show with many different component parts. Same applies to the early Hanna-Barbera series.

It may actually be IMPOSSIBLE, by this point in time, to reconstruct a show like this in an exact duplication of its original form. Pieces are lost to history. Shows had differing content of "new vs. repeat" material, etc. And, frankly speaking, not everyone associated with such a project HAS ACTUALLY SEEN a show like this in its original state. They might be forced to go by hearsay and the inescapable "Things They Read Somewhere on the Internet".

Given this, I'd have to say that the producers of this series of DVD collections have done a fine job of creating something called "ROCKY AND BULLWINKLE AND FRIENDS" out of the remains of ROCKY AND HIS FRIENDS and THE BULLWINKLE SHOW.

As is our custom in these reviews, we'll break it into CONS and PROS.

The CONS:

Authenticity of the Experience: Please refer to the opening paragraphs above.

Music Substitution: The original theme music, and that which heralds the start of the many of the component parts, has been substituted.

As others noted, it's been years since Season Three was released. I had been wondering if sales were so poor that the rest of R&B would remain lost, but no, at long last, here's Season Four! You simply cannot go wrong with these shows! Often much more intellectual humor than you would suspect; it's not just a kids' show, but a funny look many aspects of society of the time. Jay Ward rules ;)

It all good Bullwinkle and Rocky, but... 2 DVDs in a flip-open case and an insert with the track listings on it. But no box for those to go in, so I'm not sure how long I'll have the insert. Maybe I can devise a box... 5 stars for the content, minus a star for packaging.

this season may only have 19 episodes but they are some of the best, plus Mr.Peabody and Sherman, Dudley-Do-Right, and all the rest are classics

Great release. On content alone, it would be 5 stars.

But this is 2010, and this is not captioned. How can ANYTHING be released in this day and age without captions or subtitles? It should be a requirement!

And it's not even as though it hasn't been done for this show before. VHS tapes that were released 20 years ago are captioned. And this isn't? That makes it even less understandable and even more wrong. Why limit the audience intentionally?

The long wait was worth it. Anything produced by Jay Ward & Bill Scott on DVD is welcomed by me.

Rocky and Bullwinkle, Fractured Fairy Tales, Aesop & Son, Bullwinkle's Corner, Mr. Know-It-All, Rocky & Bullwinkle Fan Club, Peabody's Improbable History, and Dudley Do-Right of the Mounties all had a goofy, half-baked, not-takin'-this-too-seriously charm that always keeps me watching. There was always this dual-layer of humor in these cartoons: the funny pictures and voices to attract the little kids, and the clever, fairly sophisticated humor that got through to older kids and adults. In one of these episodes seen here, there is a brief scene where a comment is made about how stupid people all seem to congregate on the freeway at 5:00pm everyday. It's stuff like this that always kept adults watching this show along with little kids. I love it.

I was five years old when "Rocky and His Friends" premiered on TV in 1959. I was hooked then and loved everything Jay Ward & Bill Scott produced afterward.

I guess it is too much to hope for to get bonus features on some DVDs these days. I am happy to finally see the episodes for Season 4 seen here. There is one more season yet to be released on DVD. I hope it comes out within a year.

Greeat!Great! Just what I Expected.When I started using Amazon Rocky & Bullwinkle & Friends was My first Search. I have been looking & waiting for The Complette Seasons a long, long time.The first Three were Great & Season Four Continues that.It is so good to have the Complete Shows R & B, Fractured Fairy Tales, Mr Peabody & Sherman Etc. Just a Great TV Show. I get such pleasure from watching These DVDs.You must Buy this Set.You will Love it!!! Bring on Season Five & Six. I think the Final Season was 1964 But,I am not sure. I hope Classic Media will give Us Complete Seasons and Shows Thru the Final Season. Whenever it was.
