1.0 out of 5 stars Jerry Beck Sez October 27, 2006
Animation Historian and self-proclaimed Famous Studios fan Jerry Beck posted this on his excellent Cartoon Brew web site:

"Sony Wonder has just released a boxed set called Harveytoons: The Complete Collection. 'Harveytoons' was the generic name affixed to the 1950s Paramount/Famous Studio cartoons (featuring Casper, Baby Huey, Herman and Katnip, Little Audrey, Buzzy, etc.) when they were originally syndicated to television back in the 1960s, after Harvey Comics acquired the TV and non-theatrical rights to the library. Classic Media owns the collection today and authorized this new set. I haven't had time to review the whole set, but what we have here are 52 episodes of THE HARVEYTOONS SHOW, a program I formatted for Harvey Entertainment and Fox Kids back in 1998. Unfortunately, this set does NOT constitute 'the complete collection' under any condition. For a variety of reasons we did not incorporate the entire Harveytoon library into the original series. Certain cartoons (particularly the Screen Songs) are edited. The fact that their were 78 episodes should tip you off right there. Here's the list of the original Fox Kids series. Sadly the contents of the DVD set doesn't even match up to this list (for example, episode 52 on the DVD is actually #53 of the series).

"Oh, how I wish someone from Classic Media had consulted with me. For one, I would have made sure to include certain cartoons (like the politically incorrect Chew Chew Baby) and it would have been fun to create some bonus materials. The good news is that the cartoons look nice and clean, the cult classic La Petite Parade is included (episode #40 on the DVD) and they've restored the original Jackson Beck vocal tracks to Buzzy The Crow."

1.0 out of 5 stars What were they thinking?? November 12, 2006
First of all...this is NOT the complete collection. Secondly, the cartoons are butted together with hardly time for one to end before the next one begins. And lastly, there is no booklet, no listing, no menu of any kind on the DVD itself.

Very shoddy package of some very fine cartoons and characters. I hate to sound like an old-timer...but why do most people not care anymore about what they produce? How could you sign you name or be part of a team that worked on this very mediocre (at best) packaging, and walk out of work with any sense of pride?

Dramatic, I know, but fight the urge to be any part of mediocrity. Be proud to sign your name to anything you produce. No one should be proud of being any part of this packaging.

4.0 out of 5 stars Basic Review From Stay At Home Mom New To Series October 29, 2006
Classic Media, Harvey and Sony Wonders have released Harveytoons-The Complete Collections. If you are old enough to remember these classic shorts you will be glad to finally own these classic cartoons on DVD. If you are new to the Harveytoons collection, you will enjoy yourself getting acquainted with the original Casper The Friendly Ghost, Wendy, Baby Huey, Katnip, Little Audrey and other characters.

The four discs included with the set are dual disc in nature, which means that DVD content is on both sides of the disc. What I found most frustrating about this set is that there is no booklet included. If I were a connoisseur of these classics shorts I wouldn't know which disc to start with or where to look for the episode I wanted to watch. So I just put the discs in and started watching cartoons.

Harveytoons are almost completely new to me, so please bear with my review. I have a vague memory of seeing these cartoons in syndication when I was three or four years old. Casper is probably the most well known of the HarveyToons characters. In the shorts featured on the set he has to deal with people being afraid of him sometimes. He can't understand why because after all he is a friendly ghost. In one short he goes to the zoo and befriends a baby elephant. The most interesting of the Casper shorts are when his naughty cousins are included in the episode. Katnip is another popular HarveyToons character. He is a mischievous feline. My son said some of the Katnip episodes reminded him of Tom & Jerry, I'm sure he was referring to the storyline because Katnip did have a mouse named Herman who was involved in many of his adventures.

The HarveyToons-The Complete Collections is pretty barebones. There is nothing that tells you how much content is on each disc.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funday Funnies March 11, 2011
Verified Purchase
"Matty's Funday Funnies" ran on Sunday (Funday) on ABC from 1959 to 1962. The show was immensely popular, featuring Casper the friendly ghost and other characters from Harvey Famous theatrical cartoons, which were shown by Paramount in theaters in the '50s. Casper was also syndicated in 1953 for TV in seven minute cartoons. "Matty" in the title of the 1959 series referred to the sponsor, Mattel Toys, and the cartoon hosts, Matty and Sisterbelle. The show's second incarnation, "Matty's Funnies" in 1962, featured Beany and Cecil Bob Clampett's: Beany and Cecil Bob Clampett's Beany And Cecil, Vol. 2.

It's difficult now to imagine how good cartoons were at this fledgeling time. The 1959 show ran against "Rocky and His Friends", which must rank as one of the all-time great shows. The 1960 season brought "The Flintstones", which ran until 1966. Bugs Bunny also appeared in repackaged Warner theatrical cartoons this year. Along with the Oscar-winning rabbit, "King Leonardo and his Short Subjects" made their dubut, and were later syndicated along with Rocky and Bullwinkle shows. 1961 saw "The Alvin Show", "Top Cat" and "Beany and Cecil" take the stage, followed in 1962 by Hanna-Barbera's other early triumph, "The Jetsons". Along with the "first family of the future", "Supercar" arrived from the UK, the vanguard of the futuristic Supermarionation shows that would include "Fireball XL5" and "Thunderbirds", announcing to US kids that the future is now.

Famous Studio Cartoons in original theatrical prints?
Certainly, there ought to be major sets of complete and uncut Harvey Toons cartoons, perhaps similar to the old Worldvision VHS tapes where there were entire "programs" devoted to any of the characters in the roster. Of course, such programs left out the one shot cartoons which I... Read More
