Incredible set, cartoon history music preserved,

This review is from: Hanna Barbera's Pic-A-Nic Basket Cartoon Classics (Audio CD)
This is a set that meant Rhino Records had to take a big leap of faith in cartoon music fans to support such an effort. With 4 discs, very unusual packaging, a 35 page book, and a whopping 182 tracks, it had to be a small release - for only a real classic cartoon nut like me would even buy such a thing. This set is getting exceedingly rare and hard to find now, I have seen it sell for over $100 at shows. Yogi's basket to hold the CD's in.... Great idea, but do not use the handle, it is only for "show". The CD's have their own cases. My set is also ripped to my music player so I can hear it. Also the kids are always listening to the discs in the car. This is great for keeping them happy and me too.
Look at the entire track list on this page, it is a huge collection. And all of the classic shows are represented here. Flintstones, Huckleberry Hound, Jetsons, Magilla Gorilla, Yogi, Bear, Snagglepuss, Top Cat, Josie & the Pussycats, Scooby Doo, Quick Draw McGraw, Peter Potamus, Augie Dogie, Pixie & Dixie, and so many more! Plus tons of sound effects, background music and more.
And no one seems to mention, there is a great 35 page book included with the basket. It has an interview with the great Hoyt Curtin, and it has info on main cartoon theme songs. The book definitely adds to the value. I recommend this set to any Hanna-Barbera fan.
