    Yeah muppetsforever that is a sweet and heartfelt song. If I weren't so lazy I could go through the DVD and pick out the words to that song...but...I probably won't. Sorry.

    I don't get Toon Disney or Boomerang! Ergh! Oh well, don't have much time for TV anyway.

    wow, garfield and friends- that brings back memories of hours in front of the television... i actually remember that episode with the muppet babies reference- and remember thinking how cool it was that i watched both shows and got that refrence... god, i was a pathetic little kid. it's so refreshing to know there are other people who have an appreciation for the old time quality programming of that time. little kids don't realize how crappy the stuff is they're watching today..

    All the same, we watched some crappy shows when we were little, too. Go back and watch the old He-Man cartoon. Ugh. And as much as I love Pac-Man and the cartoon, it really wasn't that good. And then shows like Transformers, which I watched religously when I was little, was nothing more than 30 minute toy commercials. --Klonoa

    To some extent that is true. There is always plenty of garbage floating around for everyone.

    However there were also some cartoons that were pretty good.

    CBS probably had the best lineup of Children's programming.

    Muppet Babies, Pee-Wee's Playhouse, Garfield and Friends, Ninja Turtles {the first few seasons}.

    But I mean there were other great shows on too ranging from Real Ghostbusters to Ducktales {not on Saturday's but still}.

    You just don't see the budget's in the cartoons anymore. I mean as a whole Saturday mornings on networks have been dead for 10 years now.

    I mean if you go from 1984 to 1994 you see some crap but you also can come up with a pretty impressive list of shows that started as well.

    I would definitely agree that the quality and budget is not put into it anymore. I mean I was raised on Hanna Barbera and the '80s cartoons you listed and those cartoons were much better (IMO) than today's are.

    McFraggle are you buying any of the Old Hanna Barbera cartoons coming out on DVD?

    I already have Scooby Doo Where are you season 1 and 2, Jetsons 1st season and Flintstones 1st season. I can't wait for Wacky Races and Top Cat!

    You guys know what else is coming to dvd? Pee Wee's Playhouse, I think both season one and two around the same time! along with Pee Wee's Christmas Specail! All these cool shows and Fraggle Rock next year! I hope this leads to Muppet Babies and the Muppet Show bow sets!

    I'm also looking forward to The Looney Tunes Gold collection 2! I might get Top Cat as well.

    Sheesh Muppet Babies {Though only a few}, Garfield and Pee Wee's Playhouse, along with a release of the original ninja turtles..... I feel like recreating CBS' old saturday morning mega lineup.

    I haven't yet. I would like to buy the "Jetsons" though. I bought a cheapie "Heathcliff" DVD the other day that had around a couple hours worth of episodes. :)

    Oh yes the Heatcliff DVD's there are three of them, "Terror of the Neighborhood” “Fish Tales,” and then the Heathcliff movie wich is basicaly a bunch of reg ep's tied together by Heathcliff telling stories to his nephews.

    I'm not found on how they say 9 episodes on the DVD's when it's not 9 full shows but rather 9 single cartoons. 7 are heathcliff and 2 are Catillac Cats cartoons.

    But I do like how the DIC company has been put out many DVD's of thier shows. I haven't seen them all in stores (like the Littles) but i have all the ones I want for now, which is basicaly Heathcliff and the one Mairo Bros 3 one. some are at stores like Media Play others at at drug stores. I hope for more Mario and maybe even an All Dogs go to Heaven the Series DVD. I haven't seen the Inspector Gadget one though, only garbage boy.... i mean gadget boy.

    I bought "Fish Tales." I too like how they claim it is 9 "episodes." So which is better "Terror of the Neighborhood" or "Fish Tales?" I didn't see "Terror..." at Wal Mart. :)

    I keep seeing Fishtales at Wal-mart myself.

    Though I am still waiting for Disney to open their vaults and release Ducktales and Rescue Rangers.

    Hopefully they follow the Garfield approach {Can't wait for set 2}.

    I do think it'll happen eventually. I mean if you would have told me two years ago that we'd see the tv show explosion like we have, I wouldn't believe it.

    But studios are starting to realize that people really like the concept of tv on dvd and it makes a lot of sense really. It gives people a chance to sit back and see fav. episodes and characters in more situations than just a movie and they take a while to go through. You can watch them in half-hour increments every night.

    In many cases the shows have never looked better. You're essentially seeing your favorite shows in the best detail possible.

    It is cool and the "TV on DVD" craze is one of the best things to come from the DVD explosion. :)

    Good now watch it before Volume 2 comes out in 4 weeks.

    Speaking of, has anyone else had any trouble finding the new Garfield Holiday DVD?

    I know I have. I've been to lots of stores. The thing is that I went to Kmart since thats where I got Garfield as himself and Garfield and Friends vol. 1 but I didn't go on the date that Holiday Celebration and I'm thinging that is got sold out. I had someone call Hastings in Abliene and they said thay hadn't got there shipment in and they would put me down for one but I didn't have one. I hope I can find in before Thanksgiving.
