Excellent picture quality.
Jody L. Huey
It is good to watch something you can laugh at as I don't find today's humor that funny.

The grandkids love the cartoons and it sure brings back memories for me as well.

From 1958 comes the first cartoon to win an Emmy award, the second effort of the pioneering duo Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera, and one of the best-loved cartoons of all time. My title is a line from the theme song of the original black and white Kellogg's sponsored show with Cornelius Rooster from Kellogg's Corn Flakes in the opening scene, which is reconstructed in the "Special Features" section. Hanna-Barbera has gone all out on this collection, even including a lithoed animation cel. This set barely fits the "Golden Collection" format, however; the four disc pack barely fits in the sleeve and the fourth DVD is double sided to hold all the special features.

Following the Ruff and Reddy Show, this was Hanna-Barbera's second foray into bringing cartoons to the small screen using limited animation to meet the much smaller budget for TV shows. Hence, it plays like radio, with Don Messick narrating and Daws Butler voicing a cornocopia of characters, whose dialogue he called "pure butter." Visually, the show is also a feast, if a minimalist one, with clean, bright colors, modern background design, witty writing and such unforgettable stars as Huck, Yogi, Boo Boo, Pixie and Dixie and Mr. Jinks.

Here's the ground-breaking show that established Hanna-Barbera, set the standard for TV 'toons, and inspired the retro look of Cartoon Network's "Two Stupid Dogs," Dexter's Lab," and "Johnny Bravo," designed as cartoon tributes by such animators as Genndy Tartakovsky and Scott Shaw who love the look of classic H-B. When this show aired in its 6:30 PM time slot in New York, adults and college kids made up a large percentage of its 16 million viewers, and I can imaging kids taking to Huck as they have to another H-B hound, Scooby Doo.

I'm thrilled that the guys and gals at Warner have decided to release this great series on DVD. It has rarely been shown in recent decades on TV. I remember watching it along with the Yogi Bear Show and the Quickdraw MacGraw Show when I was very young in the early 60s. I never forgot that opening theme. It forms part of a tapestry of wonderful childhood memories, and I could not wait to hear it again after all these years.

When I got Volume 1, I quickly ripped off the cellophane and opened the packaging. Actually, it wasn't that quick. The quadruple accordion-folded packaging holding the discs was stuffed into the plastic sleeve like the proverbial two pounds of baloney in a one-pound bag, so tightly, indeed, that it took some trying to get it out (Hint: Hold by both sides with open end down and shake). WB people: fix this on Volume 2.

When you put in the first disc and play the first episode from the main menu, you will discover, to your horror, that the original opening theme is absent. Neither the familiar opening nor the closing are included in any of the episodes on the main menu on any of the discs. DON'T PANIC! They are actually included in the special features section on discs 1 and 4.

Besides the 6 episodes on disc 1, the special features section also has episodes 2 thru 6 in "reconstituted" form, that is, exactly the way they were originally broadcast, with the original opening and closing themes and bumpers between the Yogi, Pixie & Dixie and Huck toons. Seeing these episodes with their associated introductory and concluding themes and commercial plugs gave me that warm and fuzzy feeling I got as a five-year-old watching my favorite shows right before bedtime. The opening and closing themes on the disc were also fuzzy, and in black & white.

Wonderful shows, beautiful quality. Someone did a bang-up job of piecing together the old lead-ins and commercials from whatever video source material was available, good or bad. The feature on Daws Butler is a lot of fun.
Many of my favorite Huckleberry Hound/Pixie & Dixie/Yogi Bear cartoons were in seasons 2 and 3. So I thought, "If Volume 1 (Season 1) is THIS great, then I want to order Volumes 2 and 3!"
But......there ARE NO Volumes 2 or 3 on DVD. Rats. Volume 1 came out WAY BACK in 2005. And since then, NO DVDS of seasons 2 or 3. A story all too commonplace in the DVD marketplace. The baby boomers who love these shows are healthy enough and rich enough AT THE PRESENT TIME to make it a worthwhile endeavor. I sure hope someone in the industry is reading this.

Any fan of saturday morning cartoons should buy this set! It includes hours of some of the best Hanna Barbera cartoons ever made (in the late 1950's, when Hanna Barbera cartoons where still fresh and imaginative). Sure these cartoons were made in the early days of television animation, and the animation is primitive and choppy, but the characters in these cartoons are some of the greatest characters in cartoon history. Huckleberry Hound is very funny, Pixie and Dixie and Mr. Jinx also made me laugh, and Yogi Bear is of course classic! These were some of the very first cartoons that Hanna Barberba made when they moved to TV, and you can see the cartoons get better and better with each episode. Plus, there are some great extras, including the pilot episode, the original Huckleberry Hound theme song, and classic 1950's Kellogg's commercials featuring the characters of this set. This is a must have for kids AND adults!
