There are loads of Popeye (23 of them, almost all the post Fleischer ones), just one Casper & Woody Woodpecker, which may disappoint, but the Woody one is a great early 40s one.
BEWARE buying this set if you own the 100 Cartoon collection (with the dog pen drawing on the front) and the 101 Set (from Australia) as these duplicate most of this set. The 101 set copies 75% of this set in the same order!

However, do not think you can sit the kids down unattended, this is a historical collection and contains many cartoons with stereotyped and racial characterizations.
Overall, this may be the best place to start building a collection of works from this bygone era of entertainment.
Video dubs on "150 Cartoon Classics" vary from very good quality to barely fair. There's no evidence here of digital enhancement. Some shorts are taken from 16mm b&w prints once sold for home use, even though the originals were in color. One example is "Jingles" (it's actually "Mendelssohn's Spring Song" -- "Jingles" being the series name). Although b&w here, this was originally in "Brewster Color." Audio is generally clear, however a few titles have unsynched sound and picture. Also, MILL CREEK flashes their logo on-screen for several seconds midway through each short.
Betty Boop is most plentiful in this collection, followed by Popeye and The New 3 Stooges. Less-common cartoons include works from Britain, France and Canada. Studios represented: AUDIO PRODUCTIONS, BREWSTER, CAMBRIA, CORNELL, FAMOUS, FLEISCHER, HALAS & BATCHELOR, JEFFERSON, LANTZ, NEW WORLD, PIED PIPER, POWERS, SOFAC, SULLIVAN, TERRYTOON, VAN BEUREN and WINKLER.
FAMILY CLASSICS 100 Movie Pack (also from MILL CREEK) is an excellent motion picture supplement to this MCE DVD.
