While I'm not too happy that Mill Creek didn't release complete series sets of all 13 episodes of The Get Along Gang and Pole Position, this set does have the remaining three episodes of both shows on Disc 10. If you are a fan of specific shows on this set, most of these episodes are already available on other releases. This is more of a babysit your kids type set, rather than something geared towards collectors. The tin case is much better than the paper sleeves Mill Creek usually uses for its discs. I got this set for less than $12.00, which is a pretty good price.
Here is what is on the ten discs:
Disc 1 - Busytown Mysteries
1 "The Lost Key Mystery"/"The Door Knocker Mystery"
2 "The Red Spot Painter Mystery"/"The Teeny Weeny Piano Mystery"
3 "The Flattened Field Mystery"/"The Flying Potatoes Mystery"

BONUS EPISODE: Paddington Bear: Please Look After This Bear
The 10th disc contains episodes from various cartoons; Pole Position, The Get Along Gang, C.O.P.S., Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors, The Legend of White Fang and Gadget Boy's Adventures In History.
If you brought the triple pack feature Jayce, C.O.P.S. and Pole Position, you'll need this set to complete Pole Position as the last 3 episodes are on this set, while the other 10 are on the triple pack. Though hopefully Mill Creek may release Pole Position on it's own with all 13 episodes in tact. The same can be said for the Get Along Gang, if you brought the 10 episode best of compilation of that series that has the first 10 episodes (each episode is split into 2 11 minute segments), then to get the last 3, you'll need this set too. Though hopefully Mill Creek may one day put the entire series on DVD on it's own as well. But for now you need to get that release and this one to have all 13 episodes.
Spread across the discs are bonus episodes for Paddington Bear, Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century, Sabrina's Secret Life, Whimzee's House, Nanoboy and Simon in the Land of Chalk Drawings.
The discs are kept in a metal circle case with a zip that goes around it and inside is several pouches made of Velcro (I believe) and the discs are kept in each pouch, making it ideal for journeys, hence the theme of this set.
However I can only recommend this set if you're a fan of variety as most of these shows have all ready been released by Mill Creek Entertainment on separate sets you can buy for each show individually, so unless you want variety or you wish to complete The Get Along Gang or Pole Position, I wouldn't recommend anyone else getting this set and would suggest buying separate sets if you're only a fan of a few of these shows, as there is a LOT of variety in this set.
Though if you don't mind variety or just want something affordable to keep the kids at bay for hours, well you just can't say no to a set like this. Very well packaged and a nice idea on Mill Creek's part. Though hopefully they'll see sense and release the Get Along Gang and Pole Position separately soon.

Big thanks to Cookie Jar for resurrecting another group of childhood favorites!
Comes in a convenient tin travel case that zips up with a harness that makes it perfect for trips with the kids.
What really makes this a great deal is the episode count and the shows included. There are shows included for various ages, even young toddlers and upwards of pre-teens that like a bit more action...
100+ episodes, 10 DVDs, 40+ hrs...the main reason I even gave this a second look as opposed to those other ripoff cartoon compilations is the fact that it contained Heathcliff, but also Johnny Test (hate the show, but kids like it) and a few other newer titles...
Regardless, its a great set and ended up grabbing it at K-Mart for $9.99...thanks Cookie Jar!!

I initially gave this set a poor review because I tried buying it from Amazon TWICE, and both times, the sets were defective--disc 10 was missing, and there was a duplicate of disc 8.
Luckily, the manufacturer of the DVD, Mill Creek, has amazing customer service. I emailed them about the issue, and they promptly replied and sent me a replacement! It was no hassle at all. For that alone, I'll be happy to keep giving Mill Creek my business.
So, you may need to get a replacement disc from the manufacturer, but this set is a great value with lots of fun cartoons. RECOMMENDED.
