No US set extras and edited episodes.....PHOOEY!
on 28 October 2015
This UK version of the US box set is OK. It's very good for it's price, being practically dirt cheep but it has it's flaws.
Although unlike the US set where disc 2 is double-sided, Disc 2 is this set is a single disc, which is fine if you're worried about smudging your discs etc. However, because of that, the extras that are on the US set, are NOT on this UK re-release. So if you want 3 episode commentaries, a Hong Kong Phooey documentary and a storyboard sequence, then you'll have to get the US set.
Also, the episodes on this set and on all subsequent re-release put out by Warner Bros. are sadly edited episodes and therefore are NOT complete.
Probably to save space, Warner Bros. used the Syndicated masters (which were edited for commercials and local network continuity), instead of the full unedited Saturday morning versions, which is a bit of a shame and yes the US set is also guilty of doing this. :(
The packaging is also OK, but not on par with the much nicer US set.
So overall it's good for it's price, but fails on so many other levels.
