5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic zany antics from the master 6 Nov 2008
By tjs498
A fantastic boxset of 4 DVDs for children (and adults) of all ages. The cartoons have been remastered so the quality is fantastic for something this old. As you would expect from a collection spanning 4 DVDs some cartoons have dated better than others, but all in all highly recommended.

JC Norman must have been unlucky enough to receive a faulty disc. My copy is in English (as expected) and I have not had any problems with it at all.

I bought this assuming it would be identical to the US region 1 Woody Woodpecker collection as they have the same cover. How wrong I was!!!!! Whilst the US Region 1 set has 75 cartoons and a ton of bonus features this UK set only has about 30 cartoons. What a waste of time. Get the region one set instead!The Woody Woodpecker and Friends Classic Collection (REGION 1) (NTSC)

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic classic cartoons! 14 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase
The Woody Woodpecker Collection features four discs with Woody Woodpecker (sometimes with Wally Walrus), as well as a few Andy Panda cartoons. All in all, twenty-eight cartoons in total are included.

Disc one features "The Screwball", "The Dizzy Acrobat", "Ration Bored", "The Barber of Seville", "The Beach Nut", "Ski for Two" and "Chew-Chew Baby"; disc two features "Woody Woodpecker", "Knock Knock", "The Screwdriver", "Pantry Panic", "The Hollywood Matador", "Ace in the Hole" and "The Loan Stranger"; disc three features "Woody Dines Out", "The Mad Hatter", "Banquet Busters", "Wacky-Bye Baby", "The Dippy Diplomat", "The Loose Nut" and "Who's Cookin' Who?"; the fourth disc features "Bathing Buddies", "The Reckless Driver", "Fair Weather Fiends", "Life Begins for Andy Panda", "Fish Fry", "Apple Andy" and "The Bandmaster".

The American version features nearly fifty more cartoons than the British version; perhaps Universal UK was concerned sales wouldn't justify including these other cartoons. For example, none of the five Chilly Willy cartoons on the Region 1 DVD made the Region 2 version and five Oswald the Lucky Rabbit's cartoons also aren't included, perhaps due to Disney obtaining the rights to the character. Perhaps Universal UK might release these cartoons if sales were good of this collection?

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Lantz 14 Jun 2010
I'm reviewing two different compilations here - the UK compilation and the US compilation. There's a huge difference in content althought the titles (Woody Woodpecker and Friends, Classic Cartoon Collection) are identical and packaging looks identical - be warned! And note that the US version which is supposed to be Region 1 only, DOES run on region 2 (UK) players - no problem!

UK: Four volumes containing 28 cartoons from the earlier years of Woody Woodpecker. In these cartoons he is at his zanier best, with more innovative humour than in later years.

Kid's will enjoy these cartoons as will adults who fancy a bit of nostalgia. Woody is drawn differently in the earlier years: his beak is longer and sharper, his legs are stumpier but his humour is wilder, too.

The quality is very good but in this UK compilation there are no extras.

US: Much better value is the US version which I have purchased and repeat - it PLAYS ON REGION 2 PLAYERS. The US version contains all the cartoons of the UK version plus another 47, making 75 cartoons in all, plus extra features on 3 discs.

Characters featured are: Oswald the Lucky Rabbit - 5 cartoons (Walter Lantz's first regular cartoon character - B&W); Swing Symphonies - 5; Woody Woodpecker - 46 cartoons; Andy Panda - 6 cartoons; Chilly Willy the penguin - 5 cartoons; Cartoon Classics - 10.

For me, even if the price is a little higher, the US version is a no brainer.
