4.0 out of 5 stars Another forgotten gem from Hanna-Barbera, May 5, 2012
This review is from: Inch High Private Eye (DVD)
For anyone who grew up in the late 60's and early 70's, Saturday mornings simply weren't complete without a healthy does of cartoons from Hanna-Barbera studios. These colorful and fun programs may not have been the best animated shows in the world, but they were more than enough for us kids.

Inch High Private Eye (1973) only lasted one season, but I think it holds up as well as most HB shows from the same era. Mysteries and crime-solving, typically with young protagonists and some kind of animal, were the studio's bread and butter. And while the dimunitive hero of Inch High stands out among his animated peers, the show doesn't stray far from the tried-and-true formula. Inch has his young human sidekicks Lori (for a 5 year old boy in 1973, the prettiest girl outside of Josie & the Pussycats), her beefy boyfriend Gator, and canine companion Braveheart (voiced by Scooby Doo's Don Messick). Their adventures pit them against the standard assortment of larger-than-life baddies, monsters, etc.

While the show may be a hard sell for today's kids accustomed to a faster pace, I think it holds up quite well for those who enjoyed it growing up. Like all cartoons from its era, it's all perfectly innocent, largely non-violent, and witty in a juvenile sort of way.

As with all their recent made-on-demand relases, Warner Bros. has given this one the "no frills" treatment. All you get is the cartoons, spread over 2 discs. There are no subtitles or other language tracks. Picure and audio quality are quite good, although it is obvious no extensive remastering has been done. I viewed the discs on my Blu-ray player on a 52" screen and was mostly satisfied with the results. Definitely recommended for fans of the show, or anyone who likes "old school" Saturday morning fun. :-)
