When I got a chance to own and watch the beautifully remastered version of the Dr. Seuss TV special "The Lorax" by Warner Home Video, I thought "Why can't they release newly remastered versions of OTHER Dr. Seuss TV specials?" The reason I had this thought was because the only versions of these TV specials I've seen are washed-out copies from FOX Video from the 1990s (or subsequent "half-way" remastered versions from Universal DVD from the early 2000s) that I thought should belong on DVD in COMPLETELY remastered form at some point. Of course, I didn't care about this back in the days when I was a casual cartoon-loving young boy, but now I'm a serious collector, and I think that quality is very important.
It just so happened that one evening in late May when I was flipping through pages on Amazon, I came across a pre-order link for this new DVD. Since I, like I mentioned earlier, was impressed with the remastering of the "Lorax" special, I decided to go ahead and buy this one too. My copy arrived a few days ago, and I must say I was again impressed with the effort WHV put into making this special look better. The colors are vibrant and there are no visible artifacts. The sound is also quite good.
Having made all those remarks about the quality, I have to say that, of course, the special itself is quite entertaining as well. It's essentially a loose adaptation of the famous children's book, in which siblings Dick and Sally are left bored at home until that well-known mischievous cat and his supporting helpmates Things One and Two invite themselves in and vandalize the house while having fun with the kids. I don't want to spoil the ending, so I'll let YOU find out what the results of all this mischief are.
I encourage anyone who has children or who even loves old school animation to buy this DVD right away. It will only enable WHV to release even MORE remastered cartoon classics such as Looney Tunes and perhaps Tom and Jerry.
