Product Description

A whopping 52 episodes and lots of bonus features make this a great collection of Rocky & Bullwinkle fun! Every episode from the second season is here in original broadcast order, plus classic TV commercials, a June Foray interview and the special Moosecalls: The Best of Bullwinkle Sings." Animated. 52 episodes on 4 DVDs. 1960-61/color/20 hrs/NR/fullscreen.

Set your WABAC machine for 1960, and the further misadventures of Rocket J. Squirrel and Bullwinkle J. Moose, the most illustrious citizens of Frostbite Falls, MN (population: 48; and that's during the summer rush). This four-disc set contains seven full-length serials, several of which loom large in the Rocky & Bullwinkle canon, including "Upsidasium," "Metal Munching Mice," and "Greenpernt Oogle," with the rare, reclusive oogle bird (sorry, you'll have to wait until the release of season 3 for the Kirwood Derby).

Perhaps emboldened by what they were able to get away with in season 1, producer Jay Ward, writer and the voice of Bullwinkle Bill Scott, Queen of Cartoons June Foray, "and a host of others," gleefully further broke with television convention. Rocky & Bullwinkle was at once very silly (for the kids) and slyly satirical (for mom and dad). Characters broke the fourth wall ("Don't look at me," a villain insists at one point, "I'm not giving up the plot"). Corporate America (television executives in particular) was mocked. In "Metal Munching Mice," news that robotic rodents are devouring television antennae causes panic when it is realized that the public are unable to watch commercials. And then there are the subversively funny "Fractured Fairy Tales," in which Puss 'n Boots gets skinned, Red Riding Hood is devoured, and no one lives happily ever after, and the time-travel adventures of cultured canine Mr. Peabody and his boy Sherman, in which historical figures are revealed to be boobs. Just for laughs, there is the faux melodrama of forthright Mounty Dudley Do-Right, and the Bullwinkle segments, "Bullwinkle's Corner" and "Mr. Know It All." Still crazy after all these years, Rocky & Bullwinklerises like the anti-gravity Upsidasium above mere nostalgia. Like The Simpsons, this series rewards viewers who pay attention, and invites repeat viewings to catch all the jokes you missed. --Donald Liebenson

Unlike some reviews that are allowed here, I actually own this set of DVD's and have watched all of it.

Those of us who are die hard R&B fans wondered if we'd see more after the release of Season 1. Happily, our concerns are unfounded with the release of Season 2. The restoration treatment is as good as the first set. Some fans did not like the "watermark" of "R&B" in the corner on the first edition. I don't like that trend either but, at least here, it is transparent and only visable for a few seconds.

This set includes four double-sided discs with 52 shows, that include 36 episodes of "Upsidasium", 16 episodes of "Metal Munching Mice", 12 episodes of "Greenpernt Oogle", 8 episodes of "Rue Brittania", 14 episodes of "Buried Treasure" and 14 episodes of "Wailing Whale".

You also get 35 Fractured Fairy Tales; 34 Mr. Peabody's; 17 Aesop and Son's and 18 Dudley Do-Right's.

"Mr. Know-It-All" and "Bullwinle's Corner" are in plentiful supply as well.

Extras include "Classic TV Commercials" (3 Cheerios commercials that featured Bullwinkle); "June Foray Interview" (the voice behind many cartoon characters including Rocky's - from Sept. 2003); "Sneak Peak at Complete Season 3" (yes, the "Dirwood Kirby episode!); and "Moosecalls - The Best of Bullwinkle Sings" (a montage of R&B clips edited with voice-overs and graphics to spoof a TV record album pitch - which looks like it was put-together for this DVD set).

While I was pleased to see the content expanded, I was disapointed in the packaging. In a word - CHEAP. Sony Wonder should be ashamed of itself for releasing such a collector's item in a cheesy package. I returned two copies before I got one with un-broken plastic DVD holders!

It's a shame they didn't use the original music during the credits. Jay Ward didn't own the rights to the music and the company putting out the DVD set didn't want to have to pay royalties for its use. Imagine seeing The Andy Griffith Show and not hearing the whistling theme song. It's also annoying that they used the opening credit segment that showed the name of the show as ROCKY & BULLWINKLE AND FRIENDS, when it was really ROCKY AND HIS FRIENDS. If you notice, when that segment plays, the voice is NOT that of William Conrad, but rather, someone who "sounds" like him. Other than these complaints about the opening and closing credits, the material on the set if great!

I finally finished watching the second Rocky and Bullwinkle DVD set. Much to my very pleasant surprise, starting on show #44 on disc 4, they used the FIRST season opening and closing title/credits sequences! Like with the second year opening/closing sequences, this was the very first time I had seen these in color. Mind you, this is not the original theme music used, which I think was better synchronized with the action on the screen, still it is great to finally again see Rocky and Bullwinkle chased up and down the hill by the loosened pinwheels! The split-second shot showing their faces in horror as they realize the fireworks are coming loose is my favorite pose of the Frostbite Falls duo!

Those of you who probably saw Rocky and Bullwinkle on TV for the first time during the years of repeats are familiar with only the dancing moose opening title sequence. I saw "Rocky and His Friends" when it first aired in the late 1950s and early 1960s and I take sheer delight in seeing these original title sequences again.

Two other nice touches are: (1) On this DVD set we see several of the "Rocky and Bullwinkle Fan Club" cartoons which took the place of "Bullwinkle's Corner" or "Mr. Know It All" on some programs. In Keith Scott's book "The Moose That Roared" it says that there were only nine "Fan Club" cartoons. (2) We finally get to see a few of the Bullwinkle cereal commercials. There are SO MANY more!

I do wish, however, the booklet would have listed each "Bullwinkle's Corner", "Mr. Know It All", and "Rocky and Bullwinkle Fan Club" cartoon by title like all the other cartoons on each disc.

Additional comments added at a later date:

This DVD set contains all of the Rocky and Bullwinkle catoons from Season 2.

Format: DVD
Back with their second season of groan inducing puns, it's Rocky and Bullwinkle!!!

This time around, we get 52 half hour episodes on 4 double-sided DVD's. That'll keep you watching and laughing for quite some time. There are seven plots for our heroes this go around: Upsidaisium (by far the longest with 36 segments), Metal Munching Mice, Greenpernt Oogle, Rue Britannia, Buried Treasure, The Last Angry Moose, and Wailing Whale (featuring that fearsome creature, Maybe Dick.)

Of course, each episode also features either a Fractured Fairytale or an Aesop Fable; Bullwinkle's Corner, Mr. Know-It-All, or a Rocky and Bullwinkle Fan Club segment; and Dudley Do-right or Peabody's Incredible History. In fact, this set contains my favorite Dudley segment, "Saw Mill."

The set this time around has a Sherman and Mr. Peabody theme and they get a couple page write up in the included booklet.

The set includes 16 minutes of extras on the final disc. The highlight of these is an interview with June Foray, voice of Rocky, Natasha, and countless other characters in the show. There are also three Bullwinkle commercials for Cheerios, a segment from "Kirwood Derby," part of the next season set (hopefully due out fall 2005), and a downright hysterical ad for "Moose Calls: The Best of Bullwinkle Sings."

Purests will note that the opening and closing from the last season set is once again present for almost all of episodes. It changes for the final 9 - no idea why. Personally, I didn't grow up watching the show, so these don't mean much to me. A little more annoying is the presence of the mostly clear "R&B" in the lower right hand corner for a couple minutes each segment. My biggest complain is that the middle segment (Bullwinkle's Corner or Mr.
