As to some of the information from the shows being dated, that is true. As a previous reviewer mentioned, one has to view them in context.
The folks in their 30s,40s, and 50s are probably the best target audience for the shows, although they should appeal to a broader audience. There is a large nostalgia factor here.
As to the presentation, well....this IS a BCI release, after all. They are not always bastions of great quality DVD releases. Actually, they didn't do a bad job. I picked this one up at a discout club for $23. Not bad for 7 double sided discs and 50-30 minute episodes.
(I also complain that the box is rather a poor touch and there is very little documentation included....not even production dates).
I think it was definitely worth the $$. It is interesting to watch and covers a broad range of animals. the quality is not the greatest but my son hasn't noticed. As one viewer mentioned this is footage from the 60-70's.
I would far rather watch this with my son that cartoons.
I got this as a Christmas present for my father - i remember watching it with him when I was little - now I'm watching it with my children - and they love it as much as I always have - the 50 episodes have a great variety of all the show had to offer.
