Animation fans rejoice because on November 7 The Complete Harveytoons Collection is coming to DVD!
On Tuesday, November 7th, 2006, Classic Media will release the full series - all 312 shorts - of Harveytoons' memorable cartoons in a 4-disc DVD collection. The cartoons, available on DVD for the first time ever, were originally created in the 1940s and '50s, and have been digitally restored. Casper The Friendly Ghost, is Harveytoons' most famous and original character, and the second most recognizable character of all time.
Beginning as a theatrical animated short, the famous Casper cartoon soon moved into the realm of comics and later into a regular TV series. This roster of comics, movies and TV series created a medium to introduce fellow Harveytoonsters, such as Wendy, the good little witch, and Hot Stuff, the little devil. The Harveytoons Collection will also feature other classic characters, including, Richie Rich, the kid with a big heart AND big bank account; Herman and Katnip, the wacky cap and mouse duo; and the lesser known, but cult favorite, The Modern Madcaps. The set comes in collector's packaging with an original Casper Comic printed inside.
The Complete Harveytoons Collection DVD set will be available for $39.98 SRP.
Harveytoons has been entertaining children and families for more than six decades, and this collection - with more than 15 hours of classic cartoon content - is sure to please both children and the adults who fondly recall these entertaining programs from their own childhood. The captivating - and just plain fun - animation has won over the hearts of many, and is guaranteed to continue to do so for generations to come.
