Looking for a fun DVD set for your kids? You can't do much better than this one. You get a lot of video (17 22-minute programs), all of it filled with the same decidedly offbeat, narrated storytelling style creator Jay Ward made famous in his earlier "Rocky & Bullwinkle" programs. Though "George of the Jungle" doesn't have the sly adult themes of Bullwinkle, it still has plenty of appeal, to kids as well as parents.

My 13-year-old daughter offers this review: "Silly. And 4 and a half out of five stars."

Of the show's three cartoon series ("George of the Jungle," "Tom Slick" and "Super Chicken"), my personal favorite is "Super Chicken." Its far-fetched premise suits Ward's dry sense of humor to a tee. I've read where some parents fear Super Chicken because they think the lead character's continual need for "super sauce" may be a hidden drug reference. Maybe it is, but I can't imagine today's kids being influenced by it. In fact, the whole '60s sense of humor is what makes these shows so funny in the first place. Many of the throwaway lines are simply gems. "The pearl went back to the museum," explains the narrator after a villainous mollusk is captured, "and the oyster went to jail to serve every month with an 'R' in it for the next 30 years."

The show originally aired in 1967 and 1968 on ABC.

As far as these two DVDs go, they're pretty much just what you'd expect. The video is a little fuzzy but it's not bad unless you've got a really large-screen television. For each episode you can either Play All three cartoons, or cherry-pick them out individually.

More than 6 hours of classic "George of the Jungle", "Super Chicken", and "Tom Slick" cartoons plus the never-before-seen pilot episodes of both "George of the Jungle" and "Super Chicken"!

Running for 17 episodes, George of the Jungle was a spoof of the Tarzan story. A "show" consisted of three unrelated cartoons, each running about six minutes. They are "George of the Jungle", "Tom Slick", and "Super Chicken".

"George of the Jungle"
Life in the Imgwee Gwee valley is not easy for George (voiced by Bill Scott). He doesn't quite understand his mate Ursula (voiced by June Foray), "that funny-lookin' fella who never shaves". His best friend is an ape named Ape (voiced by Paul Frees) who sounds Oxford educated, and then there's Shep, George's pet elephant who behaves like a lap dog. Also lots of trees...

"Tom Slick"
Tom Slick is a clean-living, stalwart hero type (voiced by Bill Scott). Scott also did the voice of Gertie Growler (his only female role), the mother of Marigold, Tom's girlfriend (voiced by June Foray). The villain, Baron Otto Matic, and the Baron's henchman, Clutcher (voiced by Paul Frees) are the bane of Tom's existence. Tom's vehicle, The Thunderbolt Greaseslapper, is an incredibly versatile machine that can be modified into a car, motorboat, airplane, hot air balloon or whatever Tom and Otto are racing. As Tom would often say: "There's no such word as failure in auto racing, Marigold."

"Super Chicken"
Mild mannered millionaire Henry Cabot Henhouse III (voiced by Bill Scott) undergoes a transformation to the super-powered fighting fowl whenever he drinks his "Super Sauce". This substance is prepared by his valet, Fred, a lion (voiced by Paul Frees), and is generally drank from a martini glass.

All 17 shows are included, including the Superchicken story, "The Laundryman", which featured a Chinese stereotype as a villain. I'd feared that this would have been excised from the collection, and I'm glad they didn't, as it's one of the funniest episodes in the series.

For those who are anal-retentive completists (hi, nice to meet you), you'll notice that the 5-10 second interstitials they played between each cartoon are missing. Often, they consisted of one character introducing another character's segment on the show. Those who bought the "George of the Jungle" videotapes from Fox back in the 1990's will remember these. Why they didn't make it to DVD, I wish I knew.

The big bonuses in this set are the original George and Superchicken pilots. They're VERY worthwhile, though the DVD's producers saw fit to monkey with these. First, there's some inauthentic music clipped onto the end of both pilots. I think they borrowed some music from Jay Ward's "Fractured Flickers" series and pasted it in these pilots to make them appear more polished. Second, there are some wipe transitions in the first minute of the George pilot, where a swinging George character does the wipe. That is very unlikely, given that this is a very sophisticated technique to use in a 1960's pilot which was never meant to be seen by the public. The DVD producers did some similar edits to the audio of the Bullwinkle DVD's, and I ***REALLY*** wish they would just leave the source material alone for future releases.

Here's hoping that we won't have to wait much longer for Jay Ward's other animated series, Hoppity Hooper, to come out on DVD.
