Growing up in NYC, Saturday Morning Cartoons in the 60's and 70's, were a staple. These characters started off in a cartoon called Sabrina and The Groovie Goolies. This collecton, is part of the later shows which featured the Goolies as the main characters. I hope kids of today can see these and enjoy them. I know I have the recent BCI release of the entire series from some years back and will still buy this one. I just hope one day they'll release the original Goolies with Sabrina, as the theme music used on that one was slightly different and they even had a live-action cartoon, where the Goolies come out of the cartoon and become real live beings. In the meantime, break out the Alpha Bits, Cap'n Crunch, the Goolies are back on the air.. Thanks, I needed That as Frankie used to say..:)

I saw that the complete Groovie Goolies series came out on DVD a few years ago, but I felt like the price was too high. So a few days ago, while poking around Amazon, I was delighted to discover that this very inexpensive Groovie Goolies sampler was just released! I received it today, and it's PERFECT. Six episodes chock full of images and sounds I remember from 35 years ago! The color is amazing, and the images look sharp on my set. Several of the episodes, for some reason, have no laugh or applause tracks, but thankfully, two of them do, since that was part of my childhood viewing experience. I will say, those shows without the laugh tracks, allow me to hear for the first time, very clearly, that great, repetitive Groovie Goolies background music! Memorable "guest bands" like The Mummies and The Puppies are here, and plenty of those Scooby Doo-style musical interludes. Also fun to see in the closing credits "Horta-Mahana Sound Effects" and "Filmation, A TelePrompTer Company". Get this for your collection, and like Frankie, you'll be saying, "I needed that!" - William

I used to enjoy watching this as a kid. Now, at the age of 55, I find myself enjoying it just as much.

I used to watch these cartoons when I was little and just thought they were so funny, and nothing has changed they are still funny! I am glad to say that finding them on Amazon.com was great because I can now share this with my children! They have watched this over and over and over!

I have looked for this movie for years to give to my father. He loved it and we had a great time watching it with my little one.

The Goolies were a hit "way back when" , and the bob-along music and crazy story lines are good for a laugh. I was not disappointed, and it was great to have an old kid's favourite video available on DVD. I will be sharing it with my grandchildren when they are a little older. It had the added benefit of being compatible with Australian DVD players.

I never even knew this cartoon existed, until I came upon it online somewhere. I'm in my 30's so of course I wasn't around when this would have been on t.v., but it's so great! Even my 12 yr. old daughter likes it.

My husband use to watch this when he was little... I surprised him with it and he just loved it. Now he will be able to share it with our daughter.
