Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Greg Fagan
Somewhere, most likely in a mountain of junkyard metal, you'll find a 1972 Volkswagen convertible sporting a "Statehood for Moosylvania" sticker on its vent window, a homage to a TV cartoon that never went out of style. And the arrival on DVD of Rocky & Bullwinkle & Friends Complete Season 1 makes one long just as keenly for the roughly two-by-four-inch oval window appliqué as for the snazzy German ragtop that it graced. In an age long before cable allowed demographers to pigeonhole the heck out of the viewing audience, Jay Ward's Rocky & Bullwinkle cast a uniquely wide net, appealing to kids eager for cartoon action and older viewers drawn to its inspired satire and clever wit. The DVD format, which spreads the first 26 episodes across four discs, serves the program especially well, and digital remastering has yielded images that are as sharp as one could hope for. Of course, the sharpness here is in the writing, the characters, and the voice performances, not the animating per se. As the voices of Rocky and Bullwinkle, June Foray and Bill Scott gave life to characters that were the Marge and Homer Simpson of their time. The duo's elaborate serialized adventures -- often with Cold War–infused story lines -- pit them against Boris Badenov (voice-over giant Paul Frees) and Natasha Fatale (also Foray) and chug along on a succession of gags and puns, sometimes intentionally wince-inducing ones. Rocky & Bullwinkle segments typically end in cliff-hangers that lead into the ...& Friends portions of the shows, which are equally inspired. To at least this writer, the show's "Fractured Fairy Tales" remain the root of all subversion, as, for instance, "Sleeping Beauty" becomes a fable on exploiting the misfortunes of others. Edward Everett Horton narrates these gems with his uniquely impeccable dignity. The show also offered history in the form of "Sherman and Peabody," an eager boy and know-it-all dog who venture in "The Wayback Machine" to various episodes in the past, where Peabody's ingenuity inevitably saves the day. Last (if not least) in R&B's cartoon coterie is "Dudley Do-Right," the intrepid Mountie with the protruding chin who fights a never-ending battle with Snidely Whiplash, often saving his lovely Nell from the mustachioed evildoer's clutches, with the help of his horse, Horse. This package, offering a mother lode of cartoon memories in a four-disc set -- including a few nice extras (promos, "Dear Bullwinkle" segments, etc.) and a 14-page booklet -- certainly ranks among the DVD highlights of 2003. It's truly wonderful to be able to revisit this world, with or without children in tow.
Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
Cold War-era aerial ace Rocket J. Squirrel and his pal, Bullwinkle J. Moose, embark on some of their silliest heroics yet in this third-season set. The highlight of the set is "Missouri Mish Mash," featuring the legendary Kurwood Derby (named after veteran TV second banana Durwood Kirby), which transforms the wearer into the smartest person in the world. "Lazy Jay Ranch" and "Topsy Turvy World" are also wonderfully absurd, chock-full of terrible puns and keen satire that skewers such sacred institutions as the government and television itself ("Our ratings have been slipping," Bullwinkle ponders when faced with the beginning of a new adventure). Each of the lightning-paced shows features segments that have garnered their own cult of fans, including "Fractured Fairy Tales," "Peabody’s Improbable History," and Dudley-Do-Right of the Mounties. The installment "Coming Out Party," in Show 20, is one of Dudley’s best, in which the stalwart Mountie tries on Snidely Whiplash’s top hat and cape and becomes an arch-villain. And now, to paraphrase Bullwinkle’s Mr. Know-It-All, for the educational portion of this review: This four-disc set pulls at least one archival goodie out of its hat, a montage of clips from the 1961 Bullwinkle Show, featuring introductions by a Bullwinkle puppet (voiced by series co-creator Bill Scott). Soon abandoned by a skittish network, they were characteristically irreverent, and no doubt baffling to young viewers ("Welcome to The Loretta Young Show," Bullwinkle announces in one) and confounding to parents, who must have been outraged when their little ones took Bullwinkle’s advice to remove the channel-changing knob from the set!
