Actually there were a bunch of David the Gnome products out there, they didn't sell that well. The show was notable for killing off it's central character, albeit in a symbolic gentle way.

Really made you want to get into glass blowing :)

Just some news for those of you that mentioned Tiny Toons and Freakazoid:

Sweet, I was wondering when they would get around to Tiny Toons.  Guess the Animaniacs sets are selling well.

I rented the first disc of those and never really got around to watching it, alas. :/  I did love Animaniacs as a teen.

I have all of the Animaniacs and Pinky and the Brain sets they released, it's such a funny show and even more now that i understand a lot of the jokes. It was a very smart show. That is how i fell about Freakazoid too. It will be so nice to finally have it on DVD!

Animaniacs was much better than Pinky and the Brain, but they could have done worse choosing a spin-off.  As great as a lot of Animaniacs was, there were quite a few lame segments that kept coming up.  Anytime Chicken Boo, Katie Ka-Boom or those freaking hippoes showed up I'd go get a snack.

Super-SWEET! I have the whole series downloaded, but I'll be casting those to the wind once this set comes out.

I always thought Pinky and the Brain was sort of a one-joke thing.  I didn't get how it could be an entire show.

The show did have its moments, though. My favorite episode is the one where the Brain plans to intercept a rocket ship hurtling toward Kansas from the farthest reaches of space, and to raise the infant contained therein, who the Brain theorizes will grow up to have powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men, as his servant and thrall. Needless to say, his plan fails spectacularly, and the kid ends up in the hands of a couple of hayseed farmers.  :)

It made me laugh as a kid. I still have some good memories when i watch them again. 


*Does a happy dance* Freakazoid! At last!

Yeah i felt the same way, glad im not the only one excited for this thing!

one of my favorite quotes of all time was: "I don't want to go down into the sewer. It smells like poo gas."

I dont know why but "Poo gas" made me laugh hysterically every time

I did like that Pinky and the Brain got to have larger scale stories in the new series.  Though they still had 5 to 7 minute segments sometimes, they also had the option to devote the whole episode to one story more often.  Even so, even those two couldn't eclipse Yakko Wakko and Dot for me.  The King Yakko episode has to be my personal favorite.

Big Wolf on Campus

I only watched one episode of that. I was flipping through the channels and saw Patrick McKenna (Harold on the Red Green Show). He was a guest star that episode, playing a robot teacher. He was funny, particularly in a flashback with him as the nerdy scientist who created the robot (essentially playing his Harold character). But holy crap was the rest of the episode bad!
