Now let's hope for season 5...
Nathan Redmond
One of the best Rocky & Bullwinkle sets with all of crew, fractured fairy tales, mr. peabodys improbale history, etc.
Larry A. Reynolds
These cartoons seem to appeal more to adults than to children, humor-wise, but kids will love them just the same.

After five years since the release of season 3, the penultimate season of Rocky and Bullwinkle comes to DVD at last, to honour the duo's 50th anniversary year.

At 19 half-hour episodes (for a total of 38 R&B segments), this is by far the shortest season. Five stories are presented, in order:

Painting Theft (6 segments)
The Guns of Abalone (4 segments)
The Treasure of Monte Zoom (8 segments)
Goof Gas Attack (8 segments)
Banana Formula (12 segments)

There are no special features, but I'm just happy to have the episodes after all these years of waiting.

Now let's hope for season 5...

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".

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 ;)

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?

Excellent quality video that brings back many memories. One of the best Rocky & Bullwinkle sets with all of crew, fractured fairy tales, mr. peabodys improbale history, etc. Bought additional sets for pre-teens who have really enjoyed the cartoons.

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.

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.

While this is a shorter season then the previous ones, it is one of the funniest. All the walls between the story and the characters and the audience came down in this one. Some of the dated references will be lost on younger viewers but the narrative free-for-all is hysterical none the less. Some notes: By this point the show was called "The Bullwinkle Show" and there are a couple of places where Rocky is clearly upset at this but there is no way the viewer of this DVD set would understand this as the first season open and credits are still being used here. The narrator also makes reference to the Bullwinkle Show. Oh well. They could have at least provided the high stepping Bullwinkle Show open as an extra. And as a warning, there is some material repeated from the earlier sets, mostly the Bullwinkle's Corner and Mr. Know-It-All segments. Overall it's a great set.
