User Reviews

This series should be on DVD.
7 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember two things about this show besides how much I liked it. They are: "Madame Poughkeepsie," a fortune teller that Gordon would visit; and the episode with the Boulliabaseball game, where fish were used instead of balls. The "cat" problem became quite severe after the sixth inning on hot days for reasons you can probably imagine.

It is definitely a show for a more mature audience than little kids, and should be considered as one of the early examples of the animation renaissance that "Ren and Stimpy" and "The Simpsons" started. If it ever becomes available on DVD, I will camp out at the store to get my copy.
