Editor's NoteA windfall for cartoon collectors, DICK TRACY - THE COMPLETE ANIMATED SERIES brings together under one cover all 130 episodes of the early 1960s cartoon program. Although the series was made by Dick Tracy creator Chester Gould, it differs from Gould's dark strip in its light, slapstick tone. Exaggerated characters like Jo Jitsu, Go Go Gomez, and Hemlock Holmes are Tracy's cohorts in fighting the evil figures Flat Top, Mumbles, and Prune Face. The series' sleek, minimal style is nicely representative of the era's animation, and the handsome package make this a welcome addition to any cartoon library.

Another blast of the past!12/20/2012
It is GREAT to have these and I love the original cartoons un-edited and uncut! It appears that CLASSIC MEDIA made a small goof though. The back cover says it includes Tracy's CRIME STOPPER TIPS (The short inbetween segments from the original show) BUT unless they are a REALLY well hidden EASTER EGG, I haven't been able to find them. Other than that, I am glad this set was released Un-Censored!
