For those who have the season 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5 or "The Complete Bull" you will want to avoid this, but it is still fun in its own right

I grew up watching these as a seperate show & I think they are wonderful. But they were originally a part of the Rocky & Bullwinkle show, and they are included in those seasonal sets. The number before the title is the Dudley Do-Right sequence number, not the Rocky Show number.

Rocky & Bullwinkle & Friends - The Complete First Season
3) Stokey the Bear
6) The Masked Ginny Lynn

From the Rocky & Bullwinkle season 2 DVD set:
Rocky & Bullwinkle & Friends - The Complete Second Season
9) Foreclosing mortgages
15) Out of Uniform
16) Lure of the Footlights
17) Bullet-proof Suit
18) Miracle Drug
19) Elevenworth Prison
22) Mother Whiplashe's Log Jam

From the Rocky & Bullwinkle season 3 DVD set:

Oh, those childhood memories. Those very inaccurate history lessons, very bad puns, and cheezy animation. No, I'm not talking about "South Park." I'm referring to those Jay Ward shorts in the Rocky and Bullwinkle Show. Still, this IS funny stuff. Well worth owning. Anyone interested in animation or those wacky 60s and 70s should make this required viewing. The jokes are a little stale now, but were they ever that fresh anyway. Who cares!!! It's Mr. Peabody and his boy Sherman. Sit (way)back and enjoy.

Mr. Peabody is a TV talisman. I always walk away from these cartoons feeling magically transformed and energized.

In the realm of vintage cartoons made on minimal budgets, Jay Ward rules! Peabody & Sherman, along with Rocky & Bullwinkle, etc, were very much like sly, fast-talking radio plays staged by smartly stylized cartoon characters. This DVD also contains rare Bullwinkle puppet segments that were used in the early broadcasts. They too underline how WAY ahead of the curve Ward was in terms of getting sophisticated and sometimes subversive humor in under the radar.

By the way, Peabody's "boy" Sherman was voiced by a man in his 40's named Robert Tetley. Amazing.

Lure of the Footlights

Bullet-proof Suit

Miracle Drug

And for those of you who happen to own the season 1 and 2 DVDs that may contain some of these episodes there is an incentive to buying this DVD. The special feature is the original Bullwinkle sock-puppet inroductions to the episodes. A must have for any fan.

I want to start off by saying that I am not a serious collector so my review will not be based on other products of this nature. I simply bought the video to share with my children. I wanted them to see what animation was like when I was little. They couldn't believe we only watched cartoons on Saturday morning. This was a great memory and we had a wonderful time watching Mr. Peabody and Sherman solve the historical mysteries.

Mr Peabody and Sherman made me laugh on Saturday mornings when I was a child and after all these years, I still get a chuckle out of watching them. Plus, I get a sense of nostalgia that just makes me feel good - I can almost reach out and touch my childhood when I watch any of the Rocky and Bullwinkle videos.
