DVD Look: Saturday Morning Cartoons 1960s Vol 1

This past May saw two new releases from Warner Home Video, Saturday Morning Cartoons: 1970s Vol 1 & Saturday Morning Cartoons: 1960s Vol 1.In an attempt to capture the retro feel and shows of the classic Saturday Morning cartoons, Warner Bros has released these new DVD collections for people who grew up watching these cartoons and to introduce them to a new generation."Saturday Morning Cartoons: The 60's" contains quite a bit of classic Hanna-Barbera shows, many which are making their DVD debut, plus an episode of The Porky Pig Show complete with bumpers along with an episode of an early Anime series called Marine Boy, which is presented with a crisp picture and sound which makes me wonder if Warners is planning on releasing a season set?Along with an extra episode of The Quick Draw McGraw Show, there are 3 featurettes explaining the histories behind Quick Draw McGraw, The Herculoids, and Frankenstein Jr. & The Impossibles.Golden Age Cartoons has a great review of the set by Jon Cooke which includes a listing of the complete contents of the 60's set:
