Like "The Archies", "Groovie Goolies" and "Top Cat", the REAL openings are there, captured in their FULL format. Unlike "Magilla Gorila", "Batfink" and "Rocky & Bullwinkle" where they've cut them or re-edited them and changed the theme.(very disappointing indeed)
But you'll be very happy with Cool McCool, restored in its entirety.
You get 20 FULL 25 min episodes(over 8 hours) on three single sided discs. Great value!
Packaging is excellent.
Menus are animated with music. Realy good.
Episode menu has great chapter selection through the episodes, and has some great special features.
Brilliant picture and sound, and in perfect sync.
Do yourself a favour, you won't be sorry. (Well worth the money)
This set also marks the strong entry into the DVD- making field of Ink and Paint, who have here produced a beautiful set, with three one- sided discs in three slip cases in a box set. There's a subtle tip of the hat in the cover blurb: "That suave secret agent from the swingin' sixties is back...for 2007", with the OO7 enlarged through a magnifying glass. This box set includes the full run of Cool McCool with twenty episodes, each consisting of two Cool segments sandwiching one Harry McCool 'toon (My pop the cop), who with cohorts Tom and Dick make up a very limited animation Keystone Kops team.
The show was also unique for its cool jazz theme, which starts "OO", another way of almost saying "007". Cool's tag line was "Danger is my business". Like Bond and Maxwell Smart, he had an array of super gadgets, and can whistle for the Cool Mobile, but they usually foul up and he winds up stammering the recurring line, "Sorry Number One, that will never happen again". Don't expect lavish Disney animation, but if you want to see an imaginative cartoon played for laughs, made, as were all of King's 'toons, on an extremely limited budget, it doesn't get any cooler than this.
* single sided DVDs
* bright colorful fun packaging (each DVD has a different pic on it too)
* Full episodes (including the theme song, which is what I usually remember and loved from cartoons, and which is sadly missing on most of the old cartoon DVD's we buy these days). This in itself is a huge feature and is worth 5 stars!!
* Music and Cool McCool's singing during the show - classic stuff and so "Cool McCool"
There are two Cool McCool episodes and one Harry McCool episode per show. Villains include the Rattler, Hurricane Harry, Greta Ghoul, the Owl, Jack-In-The-Box and Dr. Madcap.
Only one negative - some of the coloring is bad - eg Cool McCool is bright fluro green as is his car, and other characters at times and background. Sometimes can go from a normal colored scene to a bright fluoro colored scene.
That'll never happen again Number One
What did he say Harry, What did he say?
Overall I gave it 5 stars, it's great value and really fun to watch and I am enjoying watching it for what it is.
RATING: FOUR TRENCH COATS

Not as good as I remember as a kid, but the quality is excellent for such an old cartoon.Published on August 24, 2014 by McCool
I'm a McCool, so these videos I am saving for my family to remember our name and maybe
have a value in the future.
My memory certainly was more kind to this series than it deserves. The graphics are terrible, the sound production is bad, the writing and voice characterizations are poor, so I... Read morePublished on May 19, 2011 by John T. Zipple
