Rated 5 out of 5★ by cazwell326 A Must-Have DVD In Any Cartoon Lover's Library When I saw that the ENTIRE collection of Fractured Fairy Tales (that's 91 episodes) was available on DVD, I had to order it! Anyone who is still a child at heart will enjoy these classic cartoons that originated as brief excerpts in the Rocky and Bullwinkle show. The stories are hilarious and never-boring. And the narrator for each laugh-filled episode is the amazing talented, and dearly missed Edward Everett Horton.A word of caution-- as noted on other sites that have reviews of this product. Disc 2 is very "DVD player picky." Do not ask me why it just is. My situation was that Disc 2 for some odd reason would play perfectly on my living room SONY DVD player, but it would loop the episode "Son of Beauty and the Beast" on my MAGNOVOX DVD player and the only way to watch all the episodes on Disc 2 would be to stop the DVD, go back to the main menu, and select each episode individually. This got old very, very quickly. The solution--buy another SONY DVD player (I was meaning to replace MAGNOVOX DVD player for a long time anyway). SUCCESS! Once again on the SONY DVD player Disc 2 worked perfectly.This is a must-have in any cartoon lovers DVD library. It's at a great price too! Buy it now! 11/16/2012
Rated 1 out of 5★ by BlueDjinn Defective Second Disc This is the third set of "The Complete Fractured Fairy Tales" that I've purchased since it was released last October (2012). And it will be my last until Classic Media can get it right.The first time, I bought 2 of them--one for me, the second as a gift--from Target. Both of those sets had defective second discs. When you insert the disc into a DVD player or computer, it goes to the menu which lists as the episode titles, but that's it. It won't play. It doesn't advance. It just returns right back to the menu. Not good.When I went back to the Target store where I purchased them, they wouldn't take them back. Nor would they refund my money. They would, however, give me a store credit for the exact same item that I purchased. Since the store I bought them from didn't have any in stock, the clerk checked for local availability. Fifty miles. That was the distance of the nearest store that had any in stock. I told the clerk she could have both of the DVD sets. I didn't want them.So I waited.Almost a year later, I bought a copy of "The Complete Fractured Fairy Tales" online at walmart.com. No problems this time, right? Wrong. Same problem as before. Only this time, the clerk at the return counter at Walmart gave me a refund. Thank you. You know, Walmart didn't have to refund my money. I don't know if it's against their store policy to do so, but I appreciate it. There are copyright laws that prevent the return of certain items.I still want to see all the episodes of "Fractured Fairy Tales". I still want to buy a good DVD set. Classic Media--the production company for "The Complete Fractured Fairy Tales"--doesn't respond to emails. Too bad they couldn't get it right in the first place. The first disc didn't seem to have an defects. 10/16/2013
