Not the same as the US release.,
This review is from: DuckTales - First Collection [DVD] (DVD)
I will not further expand on what has already been said about this wonderful cartoon. However, I would like to point out that this is a different version to the one sold in the US.
Some reviews here, list the collection as containing 27 episodes. This is incorrect. The US version does contain the 27 episodes mentioned (with a run time of 618 minutes). This UK version, contains only 20 episodes (with a run time of 460 minutes). I was quite disappointed when I received this, as I thought it was the same as the US release (with 27 episodes). The US version, which looks identical to this, is titled "Volume 1 - Episodes 1-27". This UK version is entitled "First Collection". Both sets contain 3 discs, however, as mentioned, The UK version does not have the same amount of episodes.
Despite my disappointment, I cannot fault Amazon UK as they did not mislead (it was the incorrect information in some reviews that that ultimately led to my disappointment). Therefore, I will not mark the score down, I am giving it 5 stars based on the cartoon itself.
The episodes included are:
Send In The Clones
Sphinx For The Memories
Where No Duck Has Gone Before
Magica's Shadow War
Master Of The Djinni
The Lost Crown Of Genghis Khan
Duckman Of Aquatraz
The Money Vanishes
Sir Gyro De Gearloose
Hero For Hire
Maid Of The Myth
Down And Out In Duckburg
Much Ado About Scrooge
The Pearl Of Wisdom

message to Slide Away. Yes you can partially look to amazon regarding this. No matter how many releases a DVD has they combine the reviews making the whole process very complicated and at times confusing. Content being talked about in a 2006 review for example may have no connection to a 2010 re-release of the same series, film or special. Some reviewers specify but others don'tIn many cases these reviews appear on regional amazon sites under all variations of a title for example the Jackie Chan film Miracles - type in his name and the film title and you'll get the idea. This practice is common. Be careful when buying!!
There are those of us who just take a chance on the version we can get at the time.
