Nice set, but edited episodes......PHOOEY!
Verified purchase
OK, the reason why this set has three stars is that these episodes are edited! Yes these are NOT complete episodes, they are incomplete.

To try and fit them onto the disc (I assume) Warner Bros. used Syndicated masters and NOT the original Saturday Morning versions. Me and a friend of mine saw the episodes on the UK set and I got this to clarify that they are the same episodes and we both agree that scenes are clearly missing. Perhaps, Warner Bros. at the time only had access to the syndicated masters (which were edited to give more time to commercials and local TV network continuity) and didn't have direct access to the Saturday Morning masters, still it is a pity.

Other then that, the packaging is very nice and it does include some extras on the second (double sided) disc, which is more then what the UK got, though the second disc was not double sided, which explains the lack of extras, that this set has.

The only hope we have of getting the unedited episodes is very likely an MOD (manufacture on demand) release, but Warner Bros. and the public needs to know first that these episodes are incomplete. Hopefully the ball will be set into motion to find the Saturday Morning masters and have them released in an unedited set on DVD.

Hong Kong Phooey quicker than the human eye
Verified purchase
Another cartoon favorite brought back to life in this set as the entire series comes to colorful dvd. The dog with his trusty sidekick cat named spot leaps through the office turning from mild mannered janitor into the "number one super guy" Hong Kong Phooey. All the laughs are back looking better than ever, reminding me of the olden days when cartoons seemed so much better and Saturday mornings were appointment television.
If your new to it you'll love the comedy and funny action and if your a fan it'll make you smile again.

Hong Kong Phooey, Fan-rriffic!
Verified purchase
Watch Hanna-Barbera's #1 superguy take a chop out of crime in Hong Kong Phooey - The Complete Series! Starring the voice talents of Scatman Crothers (Chico and the Man, Transformers), Joe E. Ross (Car 54, Where Are You?) and Kathy Gori (Inch High Private Eye), this 2-disc (397 min.) set features all 31 episodes (except for the half-hour "Comedy Cowboys") in their original two-segment form; Full-Frame (1.33:1) video; English audio; French & Spanish subtitles; plus the following Special Features: "The Phoo-Nomenon" Phabulous Retrospective Documentary; "The Batty Bank Gang: Complete Storyboard"; Expert Commentary on 3 Key Episodes by Creative Producer Iwao Takamoto, Layout Unit Manager Willie Ito and Hanna-Barbera Historian/Warner Animation Producer Scott Jeraldson; plus Trailers. Considering the age of the show, the picture and sound are fairly clean, despite some noticeable debris. The two discs in this set are housed in a slim two-panel pak (like the [[ASIN:B000OY9V7A Space Ghost]] and [[ASIN:B000OY9V7K Birdman]] sets). While there is no segment selection option from the main menu, there are chapters for the segments which you can skip thru using your remote. Extras are especially fun and informative.

Car Thieves/Zoo Story
Iron Head the Robot/Cotton Pickin' Pocket Picker
Grandma Goody (Cat Burgular)/Candle Power
The Penthouse Burgularies/Batty Bank Mob
The Voltage Villain/The Giggler

Hong Kong Phooey ----- According to the Hong Kong book of Kung Fu how can you go wrong!!!!
Excellent DVD video quality is excellent just wish they were more episodes. I used to watch this in the 80's as a kid and it still has me rolling.
Don't pass up the opportunity to hear Rosemary's hilarious phone answers "Hallo, hallo, this is Rosemary the telephone operator, the lovely lassie with the classy chassis"
As a kid never even realized this part of the show.

A little bit of childhood

I remember this show when I was a kid. Scatman Crothers is classic in this cartoon. Not a bad set either. If you want to go back to your childhood just a little bit, this one will help you get there. Check it out.
