HASH(0xa927ef18) out of 5 stars "Family fun" indeed! March 16 2008
By Randy E. Halford - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I was quite pleased with Universal Pictures' combination of 4 of their family films into one DVD package. It would've been even better if they had thrown in featurettes on the making of each film, but the quality presented here is fine.
"The Little Rascals" is a sheer delight. I was amazed with how well they recaptured the original spirit of the old "Our Gang" comedies. The casting was uncanny as these new, adorable kids strongly resemble their original counterparts. The story re-connects with the old storylines through familiar trappings: The go-cart race, Alfalfa's romance with Darla, his friendship with best pal Spanky, etc. And it's seasoned with cameos from "old pros": Mel Brooks, George Wendt, Darryl Hannah, Whoopi Goldberg, Donald Trump, Lea Thompson, and Reba McIntire.
"Casper" is my personal favorite, a dandy CGI-laden comedy supported with a story that has lots of heart. The creation of "friendly ghost" Casper and his nasty, mischievous uncles is wonderfully done--along with brilliant art direction in the form of "Whipstaff Manor"--but it's also a human story given credibility by Christina Ricci and Bill Pullman. Cathy Moriarty & Eric Idle are tops as the comic villains here, along with cameos by everyone from Father Guido Sarducci and "Ghostbuster" Dan Aykroyd to Clint Eastwood, Rodney Dangerfield, Mel Gibson, and--yikes!--the Crypt Keeper.
"Flipper" is another familiar story brightened by gorgeous tropical scenery, a playfully cute dolphin, and the appealing star power of then-teen Elijah Wood and the amiably charming Paul Hogan. Starting off as a fish-out-of-water story (no pun intended!), misplaced teenager Wood eventually finds new meaning & direction in his life from Flipper, with the support of his unconventional, slightly crusty distant fisherman uncle (Hogan). The film's weakness here is its antagonist, a rather one-dimensional "island bully" played by Jonathan Banks. But again, its the star power which elevates the story and makes it engaging to watch.
"Leave It To Beaver" does its best to live up to the beloved old T.V. series. Its art direction and fashion tries to wed the old with the new, falling somewhere in-between, and set in one of those blissfully innocent towns in the heart of America. Christopher McDonald does his best to fill the shoes of stern but loving model husband/father Ward Cleaver, but it's tough not to think about the "jerk" roles he's played in the past. Janine Turner (from T.V.'s "Northern Exposure") is fine as June Cleaver, blending old traditions with new in her characterization. Eric Von Dotten takes on uncertain teenaged older brother Wally. The young actor who plays sly juvenile opportunist Eddie Haskell is a hoot. But the film belongs to the "Beav" as he's faced with problems both serious & comical: A stolen bicycle, not-so-spectacular grades in school, failing miserably on the football team, etc.
This is a great package idea. There's a little bit of everything here to make anyone smile!

HASH(0xa98c7060) out of 5 stars Great transfers but the Rascals/Casper disc was a let down. Oct. 7 2014
By SitcomsGuru93 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Upon losing my original DVD of Leave It to Beaver, I was thrilled to get this set because not only did it have Beaver but it included the original theatrical aspect ratio.

All four films are great family fun.
Video quality: 4/5 (Little Rascals and Casper are recycled transfers from the original DVD'S)
Audio Quality: 5/5

Pros:
The Little Rascals, Casper and Leave It to Beaver are presented in 1.85:1 while Flipper is presented in Panoramic 2.40:1
The packaging is nice.

Cons:
The Little Rascals/Casper disc is a reverse sided disc, I didn't even think Universal did that but I guess they decided to go a cheap route. I would have been happy with a silver disc that had both films on the same side.

But, this will have to do.

Brought many good enjoyable hours to our family while watching these movies. It brought memories of my younger days forward & gave me a time to share them with my grandchildren. What a blessing. I recommend it to anyone who desire a great movie to spend good holsome hours & share with the younger ones in your life.

I loved this combo of movies, several were favorites from when I was a kid. Didn't really care for Leave it to Beaver, but wasn't a fan back then either. The quality is great, and it's a great deal to get all 4 movies for the price!

While I still haven't watched Fipper, I was absolutely ecstatic to watch the other 3. What a great combination of movies from my childhood at a great price! Fantastic box set.
