Classic Cartoons on DVD

Thu Apr 20, 2006 6:52 am

Warner has annouced the upcoming release of two classic cartoon series. On August 15th, look for Hong Kong Phooey-The Complete Series and Magilla Gorilla-The Complete Series, to be released in 2-disc and 4-disc sets respectively. I personally never liked either one of these series, so I'll leave my sets on the shelf for someone else. Now, if Warner/MGM would just get off their ass and release a Droopy set, I'd be the first in line for that one.

Just a bit of trivia....
The black guy in "The Shining" is called Scatman Crothers and provided the voice for the Hong Kong Phooey cartoon character and various Transformer voices in the 1980's.

Scatman appeared in One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest also with Jack Nicholson.

He died in 1986.
