Freak Out!!

There are simple pleasures in life which you just forget about and then rediscover. For some, it’s that lost episode of Doctor Who. For me, it’s the insanity of cartoons; Tom & Jerry, Wacky Races and the like. In particular, two series exec produced by Steven Spielberg in the early nineties - Animaniacs [http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0105941/]and Freakazoid [http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0111970/]- were just so great, it seems criminal that neither are yet available on DVD. Ain’t eBay great though? Found myself a bootleg DVD of all the Freakazoid episodes [http://www.bcdb.com/cartoons/Warner_Bros_/Television/Freakazoid_/] there and have even gotten Jane to laugh through it. The (pythonesque) random asides, “Scream-o-vision as brought to you by the Dutch Tulip commission”, the theme tune [http://www.relaxorium.com/freak/], the actually famous voices that crop up through it. Bliss. Where are the Animaniacs DVDs then?

[Update: They are here in Region 1 only: Season 1 [http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000FA57H6?ie=UTF8&tag=hmobiuscom-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B000FA57H6] , Season 2 [http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000HWZ4DO?ie=UTF8&tag=hmobiuscom-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B000HWZ4DO] , Season 3 [http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00000FBC9?ie=UTF8&tag=hmobiuscom-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00000FBC9] ]
