Having bought all the videos, and wanting to get a DVD with all the episodes complied, I can tell you this is a godsend! I still can't believe after so many years they still care about the old show which was by far my favourite Saturday morning cartoon.
The basic synopsis is the classic lone do-gooder (Bucky) versus the megalomanic evil empire (the Toads) plot. Bucky is not alone however, and is assisted by his crew and Willy - a human from our universe.
Bucky O'Hare did borrow many aspects from other examples in this genre, but adapted it beautifully for a younger target audience. The cartoon was developed and expanded from the original graphic novel, which is why it has such inherent style and visual strength.
The characters are instantly appealing and have good variety and depth.
Bucky - The cartoon's namesake captain rabbit. A brave and courageous leader. His blind selflessness and want to help all others often hamper his good intentions, but his leadership and gung-ho attitude bind the crew together to win the day.
Jenny - Psychic cat with magical telepathic powers. Mysterious and operates secret missions whilst the others are away.
Dead Eye - Ex-space pirate duck with the best shot in the galaxy and a calavier ego to boot. My favourite character!
Blinky - A sweet informative android who proves size is no object when compared to intelligence.
Bruiser - Giant baboon with a penchant for stomping toads.
Willy Du Witt - A human from our universe. His adventures in the Aniverse often present a parallel dilemma he has to overcome at school which both have a common solution.
The Toads - Evil, hair-brained, scheming, vicious, cowardly and above all plain funny.

It's about time companies started bringing out some of the 80's and 90's cartoons out. This is an good example of cartoon series from that period, shows for children that gave them the respect they deserved by not talking down to them. The stories are never overly complicated, but they still use scientific terms to describe the equipment, which adds to the general theme of the show.
This DVD set contains all 13 episodes of the show, along with a few basic extras, but then after 15 years, who cares if they don't have a lot of extras?
The picture is excellent, as is the sound, neither of which show any signs to indicate their age.
Great entertainment for people who remember the show, great for children of today, and I guarantee by the 13th episode you'll be singing along to the theme song!

First bear in mind that even when Bucky was first made in 1989, it was created on a very small budget which meant it couldn't get everything it wanted and the DVD people could only work with what they had.
Content: All 12 episodes! Which is exactly what the UK has needed for years since some of the videos weren't for sale over here. As for the extras you do get the scripts and character profiles, but that's all. But a lot of this can be put down to the fact that they didn't have much else, commentaries? Well none of the staff have worked on Bucky for 10+ years and so i'm not sure they could add that much really. Artwork? well for the expense it's worth locating people and getting the rights it's not cost effective really. Interviews? documentaries? Well see commentaries for your answer.
But overall, for providing a solid digital collection 9/10
Sound: Well no problem i can hear from viewing the first 5 episodes, everything is clear and concise and that's all that's needed.
Presentation: Nicely done with scrolling shots of all the action, intercut with random snippets of stuff going boom! Plus the good box artwork but i think there's too much reliance on the main music theme though. 8/10.
So overall i think it comes away with a solid 9, but add one point for the sheer courage of the makers at Metrodome who have taken a cartoon series which most people unfortunately have forgotten, and put it out on the marketplace well represented and manufactured without having legions of fans that Futurama and family guy can rely on, just for the few fans that really are thankful for this job just tells you something about the company.
10/10

I must admit to being a little disappointed that not much effort appears to have gone into making this DVD: the character profiles, though interesting, are extremely poorly written and the synopsis on the cover is frankly inaccurate. Oh yeah, and at least on my copy, Discs 1 and 2 are incorrectly labelled. But, you're not considering buying the DVD for any of that, right? If you enjoyed the cartoon, it's all here, and when I sat down to watch the series again after many years, I wasn't disappointed. I say again, if you like the show, buy it. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the quality, and I agree that there is no problem with the show betraying its age. On the contrary, I think it's spookily prophetic...

As much as I like Bucky'O Hare this release doesnt do it justice. Its grainy in some areas if you look close and pixelates frequently in action scenes, the colors look slightly washed out in places. Most people here have given it excellent reviews in the quality department because you haven't seen any other masters... I must say that some time ago I recorded the series off of cable tv onto a few dvd-r's and it looks much better than this dvd release. Of course I live in the United States, and perhaps they have different masters for the series here. They also mis-labeled discs 1 and 2, of course thats not a big deal at all.
Regardless of the medicore quality of this set I still recommend the series to all potential buyers, as its a great classic cartoon series. I just wish a little more effort had been put into this set.
