I'm a fan of both the original and new (current) series, but I'm not so fanatical as to know the exact order the episodes came in. This DVD has five of the earliest episodes (supposedly the first five, in order), with a "play all" DVD menu option, but there's no way to chapter-skip within each episode. The sound and picture quality are what's to be expected of an animated TV show from the 80s.
The four bonus episodes are later in the series, and don't seem to be in chronological order on the DVD. There's no "play all" for these episodes either, unfortunately. The fact that these bonus shows are included makes me think they might not release any more original series DVDs, which would be a shame. Or maybe they're only going to release the first season or two (in my opinion, it didn't improve with age).
I highly recommend this DVD to any fan of the original series simply for nostalgia, and also to any parent of a young child (4-10) who seems to enjoy the new/current series. The new/current series is action with a little humor (more appropriate for teens), whereas the original series on this DVD is humor with a little action, and is more appropriate for younger kids.
