This DuckTales set is a nice Region 2 duplication of the Region 1 DuckTales Vol.3 set, but with Dutch, German and French being avaliable languages. Like the last set this does have some generic artwork, but it's a minor gripe.

Unfortunately this set, like Collection 2 does not contain the 7 missing episodes from the U.S. DuckTales Vol.1 set;

The Curse of Castle McDuck
Launchpad's Cival War
Sweet Duck of Youth
Earthquack
Home Sweet Homer
Bermuda Triangle Tangle
Microducks From Outer Space

Despite that though this set does have 24 other episodes, they are as follows (The case dosen't tell you, so you have to check the disks out yourself, or read this :D).

Disc 1
Duck To The Future
Jungle Duck
Launchpad's First Crash
Dime Enough For Luck
Duck In The Iron Mask
The Unscracthable Hindentanic
The Status Seekers
Nothing To Fear

Disc 2
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. McDuck
Once Upon A Dime
Spies In Their Eyes
All Ducks On Deck
Ducky Horror Picture Show
Till Nephews Do Us Part
Time Is Money: Part 1 - Marking Time
Time Is Money: Part 2 - The Duck Who Would Be King

Disc 3
Time Is Money: Part 3 - Bubba Trubba
Time Is Money: Part 4 - Ducks on The Lam
Time Is Money: Part 5 - Ali Bubba's Cave
Super DuckTales: Part 1 - Liquid Assets
Super DuckTales: Part 2 - Frozen Assets
Super DuckTales: Part 3 - Full Metal Duck
Super DuckTales: Part 4 - The Billionaire Beagle Boys Club
Super DuckTales: Part 5 - Money To Burn

Overall for under £10.00, you once again get a very nice set, which includes the Time Is Money and Super DuckTales 5-part stories which introduce us to Bubba The Caveduck and Fenton Crackshell/Gizmoduck respectevly.

Hopefully one day Disney will release the 7 missing episodes on DVD in the UK, though that will probably not happen, until Disney releases one more box set in America containing the last 25 episodes of this show, and we happen to get that set shortily afterwards, though hopefully with 7 additional episodes, making it a nice 32 episode set, it may mean a slightily higher price tag, but a welcome one in my book. Despite that though, this is still a great set.

Sadly marking the last PAL release as of this writing, Volume 3 of this iconic, much loved Disney show offers 24 more episodes of fun, adventure and laughs, rounding out the show's first season and presenting the entire second. But how does this release stack up, and has it improved on Volume 2?

GOOD:
- The show is still as fun and intelligence-respecting as it was all those years ago. The characters are memorable and fun (especially the always pun-tastic Launchpad), the stories, though short, are well paced and creative, and there's a good mix of humour in the writing for both old and young viewers to enjoy. We cover everything from deep sea voyages, lost civilizations, robots, aliens and even time travel.
- For a £6 and ever decreasing price tag, 24 episodes of a half hour show is an insanely good deal, spread across three discs, and if you want to marathon it with a bucket of popcorn, like one of those 'Afternoons' back in the day, Fast Play runs through all the episodes, uninterrupted.

BAD:
-Like V2, this DVD screams 'budget release', being in just one case with the flip over holder inside. All the discs are that bland grey that Disney has become fond of in the past few years. Heck, even the central front image of Scrooge and the nephews looks like a cheap 'Print Screen' job, with the contrast being slightly too high. Sloppy.
-Once again, no features: No commentaries, no interviews, no featurettes, not even subtitles! There's a few languages to choose from, but no subtitles. Why, I cannot even fathom.
-I hate repeating this, but I still can't believe it: NO EPISODE LISTING. Not on the back of the DVD, not on the episode selection screens on any of the discs, not even a cheap little paper insert. If you're not going to bother with extras, the least you could do is tell us what the episodes are on the actual discs!
-The seven missing episodes from the first PAL boxset are not on this release either, meaning you'll have to bootleg them or buy the American sets.

VERDICT:
While this DVD release is a little slapdash, it doesn't change the fact that this is a wonderful show for all the family. Lovable characters, engaging stories and a very high fun and rewatch factor. If it's your first or thousandth time, Duckburg always promises a good time for every kid, no matter how old you are!

loved this show as a child and still do - it's just a pain that it doesn't include an episode list. Stll a brilliant addition to my collection of 80s & 90s cartoons.
