Among the usual Betty Boop, Popeye and Superman cartons, these includes three rare cartoons: One called Do-do, an Australian/British cartoon about an alien boy with a robotic bird, and both of them speak in rhyme!
Another one is Tobor the 8th Man, a B/W Japanese rip-off of Superman with a puzzling title (8th Man???). This cartoon is boring and pointless with no ending, but has a great line (making these signs oriental does not help to find your way!).
The last one is Little Nero, and although is only two minutes long, it was made in colour during the early days of silent animation! A true gem for any animation fan!
Winstar's commitment of restoration of these public domain cartoons does show on most of them, and is certainally the best I have ever seen. The "Feel The Sound" process is not as off-putting as I have feared, and it certainally enhanced the Superman cartoons to great effect.
This DVD is most suited for animation fans and Cartoon Crazys colectors. Not one of the best, but a good addition to my ever-growing animation DVD library!
The value comes from Popeye, Superman, and Little Nemo.
Popeye is one of my favorite cartoon characters, and his adventures in this package ("Out to Punch," "I Don't Scare") are funny as always. Superman was never one of my favorite characters, but "Underground World" and "Electornic Earthquake" are some of his best. "Little Nemo" is the first colour cartoon ever made, and it's fascinating and funny.
Cartoons, especially those of Superman, Toonerville Trolley, and Betty Boop, look good. In fact, they look much better than the public domain videos and DVDs you're used to getting. The usual Cartoon Crazys extras (Production Notes, Reading Lists, Restoration Demo) are all here, as well as a few novelties. (Comic book gallery, wallpaper.)
Is anyone aware of a DVD of the original series being available?
My best friend has a theory why we no longer see this character on American TV: Ever notice the "funny cigarettes" he smokes when he needs to power up? HA!
