When CBS Saturday mornings reigned supreme, 23 October 2011
Author: blackaugust79 from United States

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

First things first: why does this show have such a low score? Not only that but I'm the only one to review it? Wow. Anyhoo... This cartoon came out in 1988 and started to become a part of CBS Saturday morning lineup. It replaced the Pee Wee Herman Show after Paul Reuben's arrest and image got tarnished. Every Saturday morning I would tune in to see what adventure or trouble the Raggedys would get into. The animation is pretty good for the time period it came out in(1988) and the stories are nicely done. Once and a blue moon you would get a story with a moral attached to it and it wouldn't be done in a heavy-handed fashion either.

The thing I love the most about this show was the fun factor. It was fun watching the Raggedys getting into trouble and try to find their way out of it. It was fun to hear Grouchy Bear's unflinching cynicism. Nowadays cartoons are missing the fun factor. I still feel like a kid again when I watch this show. I don't get that same wonderful feeling when I watch the toxic waste sludge that passes for cartoons nowadays. You know that feeling you get when you sit in front of the TV early Saturday morning with your bowl of cereal. Watching your favorite cartoons without a care in the world. I feel that way when I watch this show as well as most of the cartoons and shows from CBS's past.

My only gripe with this show is Cracklin being the reoccurring villain. He was funny for a moment but becomes a nuisance after a while. Other than that I enjoy the show as well as the characters of Raggedy Ann, Raggedy Andy, Raggedy Dog, Raggedy Cat, Sunny Bunny, Grouchy Bear and Tallyhoe.

Now I know that they have released this show on DVD but let me explain that situation to you. They only released SELECT EPISODES! Matter of fact I'll tell all of the episodes they released. The Mabbit Adventure, The Pirate Adventure, The Beastly Ghost Adventure, The Pixling Adventure, The Ransom of Sunny Bunny Adventure, The Perriwonk Adventure are all released on DVD. The Christmas Adventure, The Little Chicken Adventure, The Sacred Cat Adventure and The Magic Wings Adventure are all released on VHS. Thats 11 episodes for a show that lasted 3 seasons. What happened to The Warrior Star, The Megamite Adventure and The Boogeyman Adventure? What happened to every other episode released? Releasing select episodes is the same hackjob that Disney did with Goof Troop and Quack Pack. Sheesh CBS, are you people that damn corporate minded?

At any rate if you can find episodes of this show please get them and share them with the kids. Don't let them grow up on the heart achingly wretched garbage now on Nickelodeon, Disney and Cartoon Network and please bump the show up to a 7.2 rating(a more accurate rating) on IMDb. Thanks for reading and good night!
