My Classic Cartoon DVD Collection

Post by gutterhippo » Sat Nov 12, 2011 4:20 pm

My name is gutterhippo, I am 28 years old, I have a girlfriend, I am 7 months shy of obtaining a Ph.D., and I confess that I still watch cartoons. And not only that, but I have spent an embarrassing amount of money on cartoon DVD's. With that, ladies and gents, I present to you my cartoon DVD collection... I mostly go for having a little of everything, rather than having multiple boxed sets of the same show. Any glaring omissions? Have your own collection? Want to make fun of me? I'd love to hear from ya!

"My name is gutterhippo" is probably the greatest opening line in the history of brutally honest, soul-exposing, pull-no-punches confessions. Fantastic. :lol:

Very nice collection, man. I'm a fan of just about every cartoon that you listed, and watch them all from time to time. It's certainly nothing to be ashamed of. Can't claim to have spent quite as much money on them, though :P .

Thanks mates, I actually got into collecting 'em after a guy on these forums (TRS maybe?) posted the link to www.tvshowsondvd.com, which keeps track of DVD releases and has a feature where they track sales on Amazon.com. Admittedly not the best use of my money, but who doesn't love a trip down memory lane from time to time?

Add Batman The Animated Series, some Hey Arnold, All That, Kennan and Kel, and maybe the Animaniacs and that would be a kickass cartoon line up gutter!

Batman is definitely on my list, as is '93 X-Men. And good call on the Animaniacs as well. I've stayed away from most of the newer Nickelodeon releases, as well as some of the newer Hanna Barbara, only because they're manufacture-on-demand, which as I understand it means that when you order it, they use standard DVD-R recording equipment to burn you a copy, and still charge you $20-30. There are usually no extras or special features. It's more or less what you could do by yourself with a torrent program.

I think I paid somewhere around $10 for that one, and now it looks like it's out-of-print and commanding huge prices on Amazon. Random fact about the show: in the first episode of the series, Inspector Gadget had a thick mustache. They had to change it when they got a complaint from the studio that makes the Pink Panther saying that the character too closely resembled Inspector Clouseau.

i wouldn;t call it a classics collection, but i have every season of the simpsons that's been released on dvd (1-15, 20), and all 7 volumes of futurama. i do have the first 2 volumes of the ninja turtles that you posted above, and i have some EXTREMELY old vhs tapes of mighty mouse & bugs bunny. if i come across some extra cash, i'd love to get my hands on the ninja turtles episodes box set that comes in the turtle van.

bet that once the old 70's batman tv show series is released on dvd i'll be getting my hands on it too.

OK.
I'm Mafwanix. I've been around this board for 10+ years, and I'm an old fart. My participation here puts my mental state in question, considering I'm approaching retirement. To further indicate my senility, I love cartoons. Probably a genetic trait; my father told me, my grandfather, back in the 1940's, before TV, often took all the neighborhood kids to the movies on Saturdays. Just so he had an excuse to watch the cartoons.

As you may expect, the cartoons I love are all pretty much from the period prior to 1970. Especially the Warners and early Popeyes. The MGM Tom and Jerry's. They used to show these in the theater before the feature films, in the 60's. The 1960's also had all the great Hanna-Barbera stuff on TV, as well. That's what I like.

Of modern cartoons, I'm a fan of SpongeBob. It is done in a style reminiscent of those old cartoons I love.

Check this out: The Jonny Quest opening, lovingly done in stop motion animation by fans who "remember how cool 60's cartoons were":
