Editorial Reviews

When the city is in trouble, humble and lovable Shoeshine Boy turns into his alter ego Underdog to stop a series of villains, including the evil Simon Bar Sinister and Riff Raff. And when TV reporter Sweet Polly Purebred finds herself in danger, no one but Underdog can save the day!

Now you can enjoy the 1960s cartoon canine superhero in this complete collection that includes all three seasons of the classic series. Each of the nine discs features Underdog’ s greatest adventures along with all of the original shorts from Go Go Gophers, Klondike Kat and Commander McBragg.

The print quality on the DVD is great and you will not be disappointed.

I would recommend this to anyone who has a child that enjoys cartoons (which should be about every child).

So as Underdog says it, "When Polly's in trouble I am not slow, so it's hip, hip, hip and away I go!!

I had been looking forward to the release of the "Complete Collector's Edition" of Underdog from the time it was announced. And while this set does have quite a lot going for it, there are many aspects that keep it from being the absolute definitive version fans of the show had hoped for.

This set *does* give you every episode of Underdog, Go Go Gophers, and Commander McBragg. You also get 14 episodes of Klondike Kat, 12 of Tooter Turtle, and two featuring the Hunter.

And unlike past Underdog/Total TeleVision Productions DVDs that omitted the original theme songs for the supporting cartoons, this set has them intact.

Unfortunately, this is also where this set suffers from a visual standpoint, as many of the opening sequences were mastered from rather low-quality bootleg video tapes as opposed to the original film elements that the producers were not able to include.

Klondike Kat's two different openings are from a video source, as are the Hunter's and two of Commander McBragg's three. (All three of the Commander McBragg's closing sequences, as well as Tooter Turtle's are from nth generation video tapes as well.)

Obviously, having these things in lesser-quality is better than not having them at all. But, there are a few other issues that made me wonder how much effort was actually spent in trying to obtain the best-quality elements.

For example disc three has a bonus collection of original bumpers and the syndicated closing credits sequence (among other things). One of the clips is of the "in weeks to come" promo that fans of the show are sure to remember.

We finally have some sort of description of this upcoming release from SHOUT!Factory. This info was posted on TVShowsondvd.com. Let's keep our fingers crossed this all comes to light!

The long-awaited legendary cartoon arrives on DVD from Shout! Factory this coming January 24th with every episode of Underdog, plus original shorts featuring characters such as Go Go Gophers, Klondike Kat and Commander McBragg. This all comes enclosed in "high-end packaging" with all-new DVD extras that will entice fans to jump on this release! While Shout! hasn't finalized the supplements for the set, the preliminary info sent to retailers (may be subject to change!) shows these bonus items they hope to have will include:
Commemorative book; Bonus cartoons: Tooter the Turtle and The Hunter; Alternate episode openings and closings; Featurette; Commentaries with writer/producer/co-creator W. Watts Biggers, voice actor George S. Irving, producer Treadwell Covington, animation historian Mark Arnold and more...
Again, that list is NOT finalized, and could be subject to change. Stay tuned for the official Shout! Factory press release for all of the completed details about Underdog - The Complete Collector's Edition 9-DVD set. Remember, as much as 70% to 80% of the material on this title has never been released on DVD before.

NOTE: Some of our readers have inquired with us about original music on this set, pointing out that some syndicated rebroadcasts in recent years have had replacement music, and hence such replacements were also seen on some of the previous home video releases. We asked the studio about this, and we were told in reply that Shout! Factory is *not* using syndicated masters of the episodes, so there is unlikely to be any replacement music on their DVD release.

I got my advance copy of this, and I have to say that it turned out quite well. There are always problems always inherent in these sorts of things where all of the film elements had to be compiled from different sources. As a result (I'll go through the negative first), some of the opening and closing elements are of a rough bootleg quality, because they are! I supplied them. Somehow, even though these shows had aired endlessly for about 30 years, things got lost. The audio wasn't even transferred on many cartoons, so that we have many cases where audio from bootlegs is supplied to be reconnected with pristine video images.

Now for the positive, this is the most complete Underdog set that has been issued, and that you will probably ever find. Episodes are presented in chronological order and overall are very well. Unfortunately, some of the episodes have the updated titles, but this is very minor considering the excellent picture quality of a lot of these items. And the theme songs are all there, and all original, too!

The documentary segment plays very well and is quite informative. Everyone is very animated in their discussions...even me! My segments were recorded in Oregon last August. I haven't listened to the phone conversations yet, but I assume that they've come out well, also. I even learned something that I didn't include in my book, that Norma MacMillan voiced Sweet Polly from LA, and not New York. No one told me that before and I never thought to ask.

Overall, I'd give it 9 1/2 out of 10, for the few minor shortcomings this has, but really it is a 10 for the outstanding effort put in by me and Cliff MacMillan, Reed Kaplan, Mark Yurkiw, Dave Downey and all the rest of the interview subjects.

Next, comes Tennessee Tuxedo And His Tales: Complete Collection
