This review is from: Duck Dodgers: Dark Side of the Duck - Season 1 (DVD)
When I first heard this series was finally being released to DVD, I was ecstatic! Duck Dodgers is one of the few Looney Tunes spin off tv series (outside Tiny Toons) that has proven funny and witty enough for both children and adults. Sci-fi fans like me can especially appreciate all the references and genre jokes. I pre-ordered it and popped this DVD in the moment it came in the mail.
The DVD set is just the episodes plus a bonus of the original 1953 "Duck Dodgers" cartoon; This is fine by me, although anyone else hoping for some extras might be a bit disappointed. While the DVD itself is nothing fancy, the sound and clarity are great, and the episodes are in widescreen, which is an unexpected plus!
However, I do have one gripe, and that is that there's an episode (They Stole Dodgers' Brain) with a missing scene! I have the complete episode on my computer from when I recorded it on its first few runs. Later reruns were shortened, and I was hoping to see the complete uncut episode on the DVD. Alas, it was not the case.
Other than that, I don't have any other complaints and I look forward to watching the rest of the collection. Hopefully, this DVD will generate a lot of sales so that Warner Bros. will release the other episodes, any maybe even some extras such as the original pilot (whose scenes are were shown briefly on Cartoon Network and later interspliced in the opening intro of the show.).
