Being of the younger generation, I watch Wishbone at the tender age where it made me love to read and dream. I spent my days awaiting for the end of school and rushing home to turn on the TV for the next adventure Wishbone would take me on. As I grew and came to love reading more and more from watching this great show, Wishbone suddenly disappeared from my life in a flash. Never again I was to see that lovable dog do a turn in joy or dress is the clothes of the character that he was portraying. Now finally I have a chance to relive my childhood again and this time share it with my niece and nephews to show them it is a joy to read and dream.
The fact that this DVD has all the shows that was released on DVD before, at a fair price that any has seen, will help others like it will help me to join the journeys we went on with Wishbone yet again. It is my hope that people will buy this product, and I will say you should, so all the old episodes we enjoyed will come out and we can share all the adventures with him again. So order this DVD today, return to the childhood of your past, and share it will the little ones you know have today. Support your children's future with a great show that never "dumb down" the stories, and support the Wishbone DVD so we can all join in the adventures again!

This was one of my very favorite shows as a kid and I am very sad that it (and a few other favorites of mine such as reading rainbow) is no longer on tv for my niece to watch. For more than a decade not only was it no longer airing but it was practically impossible to find except for $25 an episode which was way too much. I am so excited that they are rereleasing them at an affordable price! Now if only they would do the same for Reading Rainbow and Bill Nye the Science Guy! Those were great shows!

When I was a child, Wishbone used to be my favorite TV program. To this day, I wish there was a way to purchase all the episodes in DVD quality [Note: one can purchase nearly all the episodes now from people who have compiled the episodes and burned them onto DVDs - but it is not the same].

Anyway, the four episodes on this disk are quite enjoyable and should interest young children. I still occasionally enjoy watching a Wishbone episode. Unfortunately, I have already purchased all four of the episodes on this disk when Hit Entertainment released them individually on DVD a few years ago. Therefore, I have not purchased this collection, but since I am very familiar with all four episodes, I thought I would still write this review.

PAW PRINTS OF THIEVES tells a watered-down story of The Adventures of Robin Hood, in which Wishbone plays the character of Robin Hood. For the parallel story in Oakwood, Joe is faced with the dilemma of helping Ellie (the lunch lady) take food to the food bank, even though it is against Mr. Bison's (the school food director's) policy.

In short, the theme of the episode is - "Is it ever right to break bad rules for a good cause, even if it means you might get in trouble?"

In THE IMPAWSIBLE DREAM, Don Quixote and his companion Sancho Panza (played by Wishbone) embark on a journey, where among other things, Don Quixote engages in fighting windmills, which he claims are disguised as giants, while searching for the golden helmet of Mambrino. Back on Oakdale, Joe Talbot tries to break the Guinness free-throw record.

This DVD embodies the excellent, quality television PBS and the Wishbone show are all about. Very few things on television measure up to the positive influence of Wishbone. As a child growing up, this show played a big part in introducing me to classic literature and enticing me to become the reader I am today. Infact I minored in English in college and never got less than an A in any English class. Now, as an adult with a brother of 5 years old, Wishbone is somthing I am so proud to share with him. The picture, sound, and everything about this DVD would do Wishbone proud! I highly recommend people purchase this DVD so it can be around to share with generations to come and perhaps even more episodes will be released for us to share. The things on tv now do not compare to Wishbone. I would not let children watch very much on tv today. While harmless, things like Spongebob do not teach children anything but to act silly. Wishbone has messages about morality and learning and developing a love of reading and adventure. It encourages children to search for more in life. It is very educational.

I used to watch this every chance I had as a kid and I don't know how but some kind yet anonymous wonderful person sent me this DVD before the release and I love it! I would absolutely go crazy if the whole series were out on DVD, I want my kids to watch this and their kids, etc.
I might still buy one of these to give to my mother-in-law, she runs a daycare and I bet the kids would like it! Such a cute puppy Soccer, just like my Jack Russell.
