A Loop, a Whirl and a Vertical Climb

I’ve been viewing the first set of Rocky & Bullwinkle & Friends DVDs this week. I don’t mind the use of the second season opening titles (the syndication package was entirely presented as The Bullwinkle Show from when I was a toddler, so much of those episodes were “wrong” if you’re going to be a purist). The creation of the European syndication package doesn’t bother me (the reason why the Bullwinkle Studios/Classic Media DVD sets follow this pattern owes to the fact that General Mills owns North American broadcast rights to The Bullwinkle Show in perpetuity). I don’t greatly mind the digital substitution of the Rocky & Bullwinkle & Friends logo apart from wishing the design was a closer fit to the Jay Ward house style. Like most cult TV DVD sets, this contains material that was scarce for a long time… now you can own it for buttons.
