Repeats on Rocky & Bullwinkle Season 3
I've seen a couple people ticked off that they've repeated the Bullwinkle's Corner/MR. Know-it-All on the Season 3 set. Well it's because there were only 99 of these segments produced and as of this boxset, they have all been released. So you're not getting ripped off of original material. It's just there to keep the episode's "complete."
It will be interesting to see what they do for the next boxset since there are now only 14 Mr. Peabody, 5 Dudley Do-Right's, 14 Fractured Fairytales and 5 Aesop & Son left in the cupboard to be paired with the 104 Rocky & Bullwinkle segments (that's 52 episodes).
Also they need to put out all the cereal ads - I've seen a bootleg containing a lot of them and they're amazing.
But we'll have to wait another year for what should be the big wrap up. And then I won't have to worry if Boomerang will ever show Rocky & Bullwinkle again. Of course next year we should also have all the H-B Tom & Jerry and the final season of the Flintstones. Strange to think how much of Boomerang's programming will be on the DVD shelf.
I saw this box at the store today; saw that the pictures on the back looked like they were from the "Craig Antler" episode; are they repeating R&B segments, too, or is it just sloppy box-art choices?

it's sloppy work on the Craig Antler pic - that's not part of this set. They haven't repeated any of the R & B adventures.
You get Missouri Mish Mash, Lazy Jay Ranch, The Three Mooskeeters and Topsy Turvy World. Plus there's 6 minutes of the Bullwinkle Puppet intros and outros - including the infamous "pull the knobs off your TV set." There's also great moments where he jokes about Walt Disney threatening his life.
It is a shame about the theme music not being right and other little bonus things not being included, but since I nabbed it for less than $24, I'm still not going to whine so hard.
Hopefully with the fourth boxset, they'll include both openings for the syndicated versions of the Rocky Show and the Bullwinkle show.
