THE PHANTOM CRUISER HAS CRASHED !!
on July 25, 2007
I purchased "Space Ghost & Dino Boy" strictly for nostalgia and to revisit this great animated show from my youth. This is another Hanna Barbera series that will leave fans disappointed with the varying level of quality from Warner Studios. Everything about this release confirms it was a rush job by Warner. The packaging is absolutely cheap and the quality of the disc's is terrible. This DVD set consist's of a cheap cardboard outer package and two double sided disc's that sit on top of one another, making them hard to take out. Rest assured because of this poor method of packaging the disc's will get scratched at some point if they're not already.
I pre-ordered this set from Amazon and when I received it the disc's were already full of fingerprints and scratches upon opening the package. Amazon quickly issued a replacement set without hesitation, so thanks to Amazon for getting another set out to me. Unfortunately, the second set arrived and it was covered with deep scratches, more fingerprints and some kind of residue on the disc's. This lead me to believe that it's a quality control problem at Warner, well it seems that's not the case. After receiving two damaged sets, I contacted Warner and I was informed that they don't handle their own DVD replicating process; they just put their name on the final product. I contacted Warner again to complain about the poor condition I received my two sets in and guess what they did, absolutely nothing!
Don't get me wrong, I'm really glad I bought this set but I have seen better quality in other Hanna Barbera release's and expected the same with this one. I am completely satisfied with the level of service from Amazon even though I wasn't happy about the condition of the two sets of this show I received under the Warner name. In the end it's Warner's name on the package and it's them I hold accountable for the quality of this release. I'm still a big Fan of this show and rate it a solid four stars, I really enjoyed the special feature :The Life and Art of Alex Toth.
