My younger brother and I watched this cartoon growing up in the 1980s. Because it wasn't a superblockbuster (GI JOE..etc) I am glad that it is being released on DVD.

Even though we never figured out why Iggy Nutmeg (the young boy in the "Heathcliff" segments) always was dressed up while Jennifer went casual and Grandma and Grandpa also looked (for their generation) informal, the series was great. Heathcliff was a cat who lived with the Nutmegs and, although generally well behaved, and wanting to impress his girlfriend Sonia (also a cat) got into trouble around the neighborhood.

He obviously wasn't content with being just a housecat because Heathclif was always cooking up some kind of 'get-rich-quick' scheme, but the family always forgave him and loved him exactly for who he was.

I loved the car which the Cadilac Cats had, it litterally changed into anything. Sure they lived in a junkyard and knew how to fend for themselves if need be, but the Cadilac Cats weren't hooligans. They were usually well-mannered cats and their leader Rif-Raf, honestly wanted nothing more than to be with his beloved Cleo, who worked at a music store. Plus (again to the perspective of a little kid) their makeshift house from an old airplane looked really cool.

I hope that whoever took the initiative to bring the series to DVD also included the theme song. Many years later, the lyrics and beat are still memorable.

Finally a good eighties reissue!! This set actually is everything from the original episodes! From the theme song to the right back to the episode clips everything is here just like it was back in '84/'85 minus the commercials ;) Seems most cartoons from the eighties that have recently come out on dvd are missing key parts such as proper opening closing credits voice changes and other bad annoying things. But, fear not this set is exactly is how they were shown back then! This is one of the few cartoons that wasn't out every Saturday (then in the late eighties everyday in the afternoon) that wasn't messed up because there was no toys to dictate how the show should be made vs action toy cartoons (i.e. thundercats is a good example of that.) One can enjoy watching this in nostalgia of your childhood while enjoying it with your children now! Kid's of today and yesterday will find Heathcliff and the Riff Raff Gangs escapades quite enjoyable and funny! Oh yeah they even include the pet tips on this which is cool too!

Meeeeeow! Shout Factory has finally given fans of "Heathcliff and the Catillac Cats" something to MEOW! about. For the first time on DVD format fans will be treated to all 24 complete episodes of Heathcliff also containing all the Catillac Cats segments as they originally aired in the 80's. Voiced by the one and only Mel Blanc your family will be treated to hours of feline fun and frolic compliments of Heathcliff and The Catillac Cats.

To his feline friends Heathcliff is nothing more than a con-cat and neighborhood practical joker. For the rugged but loveable Bulldog Spike he's the constant thorn in his side and endless source of torment. The always scheming Riff Raff leader of "The Catillac Cats" is joined by sidekicks Hector, Wordsworth and Mungo. Riff Raff along with his girlfriend Cleo and the Catillac Cats live in a junkyard and drive a Cadillac car that can change into anything. Due to Riff Raff's cat brained ideas to get rich quick and eat gourmet grub, the Catillac Cats are constantly in and out of trouble.

This four disc set from Shout Factory is well done and a welcomed addition to any DVD collection. The disc packaging is well done and the disc artwork makes this set even more attractive to own. The picture is in its Aspect Ratio of: 1.33:1 has been remastered to DVD and other than some minor blemishes and speckling it's still very good. The sound in my opinion could have been much better; it's inconsistent throughout the episodes and distorted at times. Overall the quality is much better than I had hoped for and I'm giving "Heathcliff and the Catillac Cats" five stars and a bowl of milk.

The cartoon: This is the first season from the syndicated cartoon that ran from around 1985 to 1988, and then was picked up by Nickelodeon (where I remember watching it as a kid). It was produced by DiC, and the animation was farmed to famous anime company Tokyo Movie Shinsha. While it's not movie quality, the animation is definitely several cuts above the quality level of TV cartoons on average. Heathcliff is voiced by cartoon legend Mel Blanc, and there are several other familiar animation voices in the cast. I personally have fond memories of watching this cartoon as a kid, but overall I think it's held up well.

The DVD: This is a four disc set made by Shout Factory with 24 episodes total. The full episodes are there, with the intro, commercial bumpers, one Heathcliff and one Catillac Cats segment per episode, the obligatory 80s morality segment at the end where Heathcliff gives a blurb about caring for your pets, then the closing. The episodes are arranged in chronological order by the date they aired. The pilot is on here too, though for some reason it was #18 in rotation. There are extras on discs 1-3, the first one being the most interesting by far. It's an interview with the current Heathcliff cartoonist. Heathcliff's creator George Gately retired in 1999 and passed away two years later, leaving his nephew Peter Gallagher to continue the comic. Peter discusses the history of the comic and gives a short tutorial on how to draw Heathcliff. On disc #2, there is a strip gallery with one comic from each year up until 2005. Disk #3 has the last segment, the promo clips that were used to sell the show to independant stations. IMHO this is the worst out of all the extras, since it just has clips from cartoons that are already on the discs, sans voices.
