Special Features


Editorial Reviews

Featuring the voice of the late, great Don Adams (who portrayed Maxwell Smart on Get Smart and later voiced Inspector Gadget), Tennessee Tuxedo And His Tales educated as well as entertained youngsters.

Tennessee, a wise-cracking penguin, and his dimwitted pal Chumley resided in the Megalopolis Zoo, where they were constantly scheming against zookeeper Stanley Livingston and his assistant Flunky in an attempt to raise the quality of zoo life. Their projects required the assistance of their educated friend, Phineas J. Whoopee (voiced by Larry Storch), and his 3-D BB (a three-dimensional blackboard).

This 6-DVD set contains all 70 Tennessee Tuxedo cartoons for the first time in one collection, highlighted with the addition of many of the supporting segments of The King And Odie and The Hunter. As an added bonus, we have included episodes of Tooter Turtle and Klondike Kat to round out this classic collection of Total TeleVision animation.

Growing up, I enjoyed Tennessee Tuxedo quite a bit. I loved when Tennessee and Chumley would visit Mr. Whoopee as I knew I'd learn something interesting as well.

So, when this DVD set was announced, I immediately pre-ordered it.

This set gives you all 70 episodes of Tennessee Tuxedo, as well as some episodes of The King and Odie, Tooter Turtle, Klondike Kat, and The Hunter.

For most fans, this is all you need to know. But for those interested in the minute details that Amazon's blurbs tend to overlook, please read on.

While I would say this is likely the most thorough collection of Tennessee Tuxedo that we'll likely get, there are a number of issues that keep it from being the truly definitive collection fans had long hoped for.

The most obvious change that fans will notice immediately is the theme song that the first episode kicks off to is *not* the original recording - even though the visuals are correct.

The original theme features the voices of Tennessee and Chumley, as well as a chorus of male singers. The theme that starts more than half of the episodes here sounds like one taken from a children's record, with a female singer, *no* Tennessee & Chumley vocals, and no sound effects to go with the visuals (sound effects the original opening had).

Thankfully, the original audio *can* be heard as part of a collection of bumpers, promos, etc. that is on disc three. (This collection of various odd and ends is sourced from bootleg video tapes, so the quality ranges from mediocre to quite poor.

I am giving this set 5 stars for the effort that was put into restoring and preserving this timeless classic television series but there were a couple of flaws that they should have corrected before releasing this set.

As other reviewers have noted, this series is about as complete as it's going to be. All the original background music for each cartoon is intact which is extremely important when releasing any classic TV show.

This set includes most of, if not all of the Tennessee Tuxedo, The King and Odie, The Hunter, a few Tooter the Turtle and Klondike Kat Cartoons. The remaining Tooter the Turtle and Klondike Kat cartoons are on the Underdog DVD set, which was released recently.

All the cartoons on this set are broken up individually, rather than being shown as a 30 minute program such as with Underdog or Rocky and Bullwinkle. I am not completely sure why Shout Factory chose to break up the cartoons individually but it's pretty safe to say that there were some missing elements of the series that are now gone forever. The DVD set includes many of the 30 second Tennessee Tuxedo riddles but they are all in Mr. Whoopie's office. There are no cartoons of the three Tuxedo characters telling a riddle as they going up in the rocket. This set also include the original beginning and ending titles for Tennessee Tuxedo, King and Odie and The Hunter. However the original titles and Tuxedo riddles are on the disc as bonus material.

There is a note that appears at the beginning of the DVD that says the picture quality may change from episode to episode because some elements were missing and that they have had to use they only available source. The "only available source" looks like it came from a second or third generation VHS copy.

My first viewing of these cartoons were when it was already in syndication as part of The Underdog Show on Nickelodeon in the 90's, and later on Cartoon Network and Boomerang. I had watched every episode of Underdog several times over, and I originally thought I had seen all of the episodes of Tennessee Tuxedo. Little did I know that there were only about 25 or so episodes that were shown with Underdog, while there were actually 70 created in total! I had special VHS episodes of Tennessee here and there that had extra episodes not shown in syndication, but even those only got the episode count up to 30 to 35. I searched and searched for years for other episodes on the internet to no avail. The actual Tennessee Tuxedo show seems to have rarely been shown in its original form in years, and these other 30 or so episodes seemed lost to me.

Needless to say, I preordered both this DVD set and the Underdog set, distributed by Shout Factory. I have yet to watch the entire set, but i've already spent the last several hours watching these "lost' episodes today. Everything here is of exceptional quality. Unlike previous DVD releases, these episodes come with the original theme songs and original title cards. this set also includes several episodes of other TTV creations such as Tooter Turtle and the King Leonardo and Odie, which are two other hard-to-find cartoons....especially the latter.

As far as the cartoon itself, for those that don't know, it's about an anthropomorphic penguin and walrus that live in a Zoo, and get into all sorts of hijinx, usually in the course of trying to better their own lives but with questionable results. In every episode, they seek advice about a topic from the man with all the answers, Mr. Whoopie!
