Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Beetle Bailey, the Private whod 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 hasnt heard from the Pentagon, grumbling Sgt. Snorkle has never had a date, Beetle hasnt washed his socks, and Cooke still makes those high-bouncing meatballs.
Join Beetle Bailey and his army buddies and sound off with laughter.

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, ...Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›

Brings back memories. I also liked Snuffy Smith, for some reason those theme songs kept playing in my head, so I took the opportunity to purchase and enjoy a part of my childhood.Published 21 months ago by Pen Name
