4.0 out of 5 stars NOT the Complete Series but WAY FUN!, June 14, 2006
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Lancelot Link: Secret Chimp (DVD)
This is NOT the complete series. This is 11 and a half episodes. (Each Lancelot Link episode is a pair of 10 minute stories with a musical intermission by the Evolution Revolution all chimp band.) If you count each episode half as an episode, there are 22 on this DVD set.
I can't find a complete episode guide online so I don't know how many were made. I can find titles for 14 episodes on the internet but one episode (or pair of episodes) from this DVD is NOT on that list. How many more are missing from that list? Does anybody know?

Here's what you get (with episode numbers courtesy [...])

Disc 1
1.9) The Dreaded Hong Kong Sneeze / The Great Bank Robbery
1.6) The Reluctant Robot / The Royal Foil
1.7) The Great Great Race / The Great Plane Plot
?) The Lone A.P.E. / Missile Beach Party
1.13) The Evolution Revolution / The Great Water Robbery
1.1) There's No Business Like Snow Business parts 1 & 2

Disc 2
1.5) Bonana / The Greatest Chase In The World
1.12A) The Chump Code Caper
1.3) Lance Of Arabia / The Doctor Goes A.P.E.
1.4) The Surfin' Spy / The Missing Link
1.11) The Golden Swwword / The Chilling Clump Chase
1.8) Landlubber Lance / The Temporary Thanksgiving Turkey Truce

The ones we're missing:
1.2) The Great Brain Drain / The Great Double Double Cross
1.10) The Sour Taste Of Success / The Baron's Birthday Ball
1.12B) Weather Or Not
1.14) The Spy Who Went Out In The Cold / Too Many Chumps

I find it strange that they'd leave off a handful of episodes and VERY strange that they chopped episode 12 in half, showing only the first part of it. The Weather Or Not segment is missing. End Credits roll after the musical interlude. Weird.

Still, it's Lance Link and Mata Hairy on DVD so I'm happy. Well worth the [...]. The show hasn't been cleaned up and is rather grainy and faded but that's part of the charm, really. The only special feature is an option to play just the musical segments.

Here's hoping Image releases a volume 2.

The "Weather or Not" episode is included on Volume 4 of the Nostalgia Family Video (DVD) Lancelot Link release: http://www.nostalgiafamilyvideo.com/searchresults.asp. That leaves the six episodes of Lancelot Link you've identified that still require DVD release.

Seems that also missing from this set are the episodes containing...

C.H.U.M.P. Takes a Holiday / To Tell the Tooth

The Mysterious Motorcycle Menace / The Great Beauty Contest

Looks like a total of 5 and a half shows (or 11 "adventures") are missing from this DVD set.

These comments are for the old version of the set. These have been remastered and are now complete.
