A few episodes of Rugrats' 6th season ended up here due to what I said in my review of season 4, thus making this a 4-disc set instead of only 3 discs. In this set alone, we get to see what life was like for the Rugrats and the "growed ups" before AND after Dil came into the picture. This was the final season to have actor David Doyle playing Grandpa Lou, due to his passing, and the first one where Joe Alaskey took his place as Grandpa Lou. Alaskey was already famous for providing the voices of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Sylvester and Tweety in this period in toon history, and would eventually be Toon Disney's main announcer guy for a bunch of years, not counting Jetix. Also in this season are the voices of Hanna-Barbera legend John Stephenson (as Lou's doctor video narrator), and those of 2 future Digimon actresses; Philece Sampler (as Emma, Big Binky's little sister) and Mona Marshall (as the teething baby who got Tommy framed for popping the McNulty brothers' ball, and other roles in the whole series), both of whom had big roles (and small ones) in Digimon's first 5 seasons! What's more, Aunt Miriam's second appearance in the series is here, as always voiced by Andrea Martin (who played Ms. Carbunkle in Frosty Returns and eventually Mrs. Gristlepuss on SpongeBob). What bugs me about my copy of season 5 is during He Saw, She Saw, the picture and sound get buggy for a few seconds, and during Visiting Aunt Miriam, the picture got glitchy for a second, but those are the only glitches I could find in my set. Other escapades in this set include Angelica learning a new word from Ms. Carol to the grownups' horror, the Rugrats in a Chuck E.Read more ›

I would suggest for others consideration that the first 5 seasons of this iconic mid-90's series were its best. I have been wanting to own those specific seasons for years now, and while I wish they were proper sets with some extra features, I'll gladly take these season 3, 4 and 5 releases to go along with the first two seasons that were released this way over two years ago.

I own the first two season and have never had issues with them, despite them being DVD-R's which are inferior quality dicss. The picture looks how I remember it from television, not cleaned up but not noticeably worse, they also take time to produce basic menus and artwork that are fitting for the series.

The following episodes from 1997/98 are included in this set:

83 Grandpa's Bad Bug / Lady Luck
84 Hiccups / Autumn Leaves
85 Crime And Punishment / Baby Maybe
86 Word Of The Day / Johnathan Babysits
87 He Saw, She Saw / Piggy's Pizza Palace
88 Fugitive Tommy / Visiting Aunt Miriam
89 The First Cut / Chuckie Grows
90 Uneasy Rider / Where's Grandpa?
91 The Wild Wild West / Angelica For A Day
92 Babysitting Fluffy / Sleep Trouble
93 Journey To The Center Of The Basement / A Very McNulty Birthday
94 The Family Tree

Someday I still hope they would at least bundle together the first five seasons (and perhaps the movie) with at least some minimal special features, they could then release the other seasons and the second movie in another set. Though I doubt it ever happens I'll always hope in the back of my mind.

Now the question is will they go back and release what they ommitted from the second season? It wouldn't take much for a season 2 Part 2 set and they wouldn't have to admit any wrong, but we'll see. Odd choice to have Dil on the cover of this season rather than Phil and Lil, since Dil doesn't technically appear until the film, despite these episodes being a precursor to his arrival.

I won't lie, I knew what I was buying when I purchased this collection of episodes. But it doesn't change the fact that the use of "season" in the title is an absolute case of false advertisement. My kids have just recently became Rugrats fans, and I figured Amazon would be a good place to get some of the episodes for them. The term "season" is used to represent a handful of Phil and Lil focused stories, each running around 12 minutes. The quality is standard, so no complaints there. I'm just a sucker for semantics, and this product pushes the wrong buttons.

I have always loved watching "Rugrats" and hold it close to my heart still, since I am the sort of person who loves early childhood as it was full of memories and magic for me. The jokes are humorous and not hokey, and the colorful animation just draws in more interest for the actual series. Oh, how I long for programs of splendid quality of the kind that were broadcast on "Nickelodeon" during the 1990s, and just knowing that better cartoons were available at that time just kills the quality of the programs airing now. The grass is greener on the other side when it comes to children's television, I guess. The grass is greener.

Season 5 is a great Collection of Rug Rats for anyone who enjoys them. The only downside was the packaging for the 4 Disc set. My set came with a damaged inner case so two discs could not be held safely. Easy fix with some slimline cases and the use of a color copy machine to make a second cover. Thankfully this set was only 4 disc and not 6 like Season 1.
