It’s about time they re-released this. No offense to Rhino, but the first release of this cartoon was just not up to par. It was a good and noble effort, but it was nothing to really write home about. The menu system left much to be desired, and the features seemed equally slapped together. Not to mention that the menu was so poorly designed, that it wasn’t until months later that I discovered some features that I didn’t even know were actually on the set.
This edition is from a different DVD studio called Shout! Factory. And they’ve pulled out all of the stops on this release. Not only that, but one of the features that they list for the set makes it well worth the upgrade if you’ve already got it: Restored to the original broadcast versions with a new stereo soundtrack created from the original audio.
