Thanks for the review, Herb. I have fond memories of the show, but I'm not sure I want to commit the dollars for the entire series run. I know if I break down and buy season one, I'll end up buying them all. I'm thinking about picking up Jonny Quest, though... shorter series, and another of my childhood favorites. -Scott

Great review, Herb – much appreciated. I especially enjoyed your observations on Fred's boss and Barney's job – Posted Image.

And a justified rap on the knuckles for Warner regarding the supplements – the play's the thing, but Warner really should know better.

Good review on the Flintstones. I've enjoyed the first two immensely. I am looking forward to receiving my Flintstones Season 3 set soon from Amazon.com. I like your little tease about an announcement coming soon on a Yogi Bear DVD set. I am ecstatic about that. Perhaps Huckleberry Hound will also be coming soon? Curious minds want to know.

Great review as usual Herb. Just a couple of questions regarding the show's openning if anyone knows: -I remember seeing a version of "Meet The Flintsones" which features Fred running into the house and picking up Pebbles (who was playing on floor I beleive). Did that openning appear right after "Dress Rehearsal" or early in season 4? Because I didn't see it in this collection. -Also some episodes have a sync problem. You here the sound effect of Dino poping out of the top the car too early. Is that an error on the DVD or something that plagued the show originally?

I've just watched disc 3 of this set. Anyone else notice the first episode on this disc uses the wrong opening sequence that already has the additions of Pebbles, Bamm-Bamm, and the rubbles? The bird at the start also sounds like a whistle. From my understanding, this sequence isn't supposed to show up until much later. What gives?

Has anyone else noticed that all the episodes are about 25:30 long except for the episode "The Big Move", which is only about 22:30? That's about 3 minutes shorter than the rest. Does anyone know if this is the syndication cut of this episode, or if it originally aired this short? Also, I wonder if the complete episode still exists somewhere, and if it does, why it wasn't included on this set.
I'm a classic TV fan. Widescreen? What's that?
