Product Description

For more than 50 years, the laziest private in the Army has won the daily attention of millions of faithful comic strip readers –and kept them in stitches.

Beetle Bailey, the Private who’d rather drop and nap than drop and "do 20," is the wise-cracking joker of the most famous Army camp –Camp Swampy, where befuddled General Halftrack still hasn’t heard from the Pentagon, grumbling Sgt. Snorkle has never had a date, Beetle hasn’t washed his socks, and Cooke still makes those high-bouncing meatballs.

Join Beetle Bailey and his army buddies and sound off with laughter.

King Features' cartoons of Mort Walker's popular comic strip have long been available in a number of formats. Many were released on VHS, and about twenty were featured in the Animated All Stars Vol. One DVD set along with other Hearst properties, mainly Barney Google and Snuffy Smith. A number also made it onto a Rhino DVD along with animated specials of Betty Boop and Hagar the Horrible. Both of those specials were made in the early '60s but the Hagar special didn't air until 1989. A third show, to be titled The CBS Beetle Bailey Special was also never aired. Until now. Nothing on the box says so, but the long lost special is included in this set as a "Bonus Episode" on disc two. To select it, click Next on the disc two menu. The special includes characters from the comics at the time, like Killer, Plato, and Miss Buxley, who rarely make an appearance in the cartoons. The look and voices are different, but in some ways more resemble the comic strip.

The other good news is that this set includes all 50 cartoons, grouped in thirteen four 'toon 30 minute episodes, but you can select individual cartoons (the last two episodes only contain three 'toons each). Packaging is durable and attractive, with two single- sided discs in a two section case. At this great price, watching one a 'toon a day on weekdays, that's two months of 'toons. Mix with other great, reasonably priced sets like George of the Jungle: The Complete Series, Underdog - Ultimate Collection,

I was quite happy to see all 50 of the Beetle Bailey cartoons come out on DVD. I received the box set in December 2007, about a month after it came out. I eventually watched the whole thing all the way through. Glad to see that most of the cartoons on it have their openings, closings, and title cards complete and unaltered. I was also glad to see the unaired 1989 Beetle Bailey special on there, since I had never seen it before.

However, there are a few caveats in this collection. Three of the cartoons are edited down: "The Bull of the Ball"; "Home Sweet Swampy" (also missing opening title cards); and "Beetle's High Horps" (also missing opening title cards). Perhaps they should have stretched the collection out to three discs, so that all of the cartoons can be completely uncut, and still have the 1989 special at the same time.

The missing last scene of "The Bull of the Ball" has the playboy (whose name sounds like it is pronounced "feh-reh-feh-ree sub ros-ah"), that Bunny rejected Beetle for, dancing with Beetle, with laughter from observers. The missing footage also reveals that Cosmo won the dance contest with Bunny.

Significant chunks are missing in "Beetle's High Horps." One scene that is missing shows Sarge and Beetle entering into General Halftrack's office. Sarge marches Beetle in as Beetle kicks his leg up very high. This footage occurs between the part where Beetle sinks into the mud as General Halftrack tells Sarge to bring Beetle into his office, and the part where Sarge says to Beetle "at ease" as they are in the General's office. The final scenes are also missing. In the DVD collection, it ends with the rocket and Sarge Snorkel sinking into the muck.

The TV version of Beetle Bailey in shorts by King Features Syndicate, aired in 1963. Shorts are 5-10 minute cartoons as opposed to the full 30-minute ones that we have now grown used to, so an episode would consist of either three or four short cartoons. This 2 disc set (complete with disc artwork but no inserts) contains the 13 30-minute episodes of Beetle Bailey. So in this set you get 50 different Beetle Bailey cartoons. I have to take Hearst and BCI's word for it that this is 'The Complete Collection' because I wasn't born 'til '74!!! If that sounds like too much Beetle for you, then you can check out the sorta first release of Beetle Bailey by Hearst and BCI - Animated All Stars, Vol. 1 - which contains 20 Beetle Bailey cartoons as well as samplings of other cartoons as well. Those 20 cartoons appear on these discs as well, of course. Slight error in the listings on the back of the box - the last cartoon in episode 5 is Cosmo's Naught and not Welsh Rabbit, while the first cartoon in episode 7 is Welsh Rabbit and not Cosmo's Naught. This is how it appears in the disc cartoon menu. Also, the episodes The Bull of the Ball and Labor Shortage have been switched.

Even though the sound at the beginning of the disc at the disc menu is a bit shaky, the audio quality is very good considering that these toons were aired in the '60s! There is of course the consequent dots and threadlike stripes in the film from time to time but I think it rather adds to the element of nostalgia. Those are things that you got accustomed to in watching shows from the 60's, 70's and even 80's. The picture on this DVD is generally crisp and clear.
