Momentum launches Cartoon Crazys
Momentum have announced their intention to release a number of classic cartoon series onto Region 2 DVD n 22 October. The four £9.99 discs will feature four memorable cartoon series:
70 Years of Popeye consists 12 episodes of everyone's favourite Sailor and his friends Olive Oyl, Bluto and Wimpy. Each episode has been digitally restored and the DVD also includes rare clips featuring Popeye at an awards dinner populated by famous stars of stage and screen.
Superman - The Lost Episodes features eight original cartoon shorts from 1942-1943. At the time of shooting, these were the most expensive cartoon shorts ever made and are still considered to be prime examples of the art of animation.
Roger Ramjet comes from the pen of the same man that brought us The Flintstones and Rocky and Bullwinkle. The DVD features a collection of episodes where Roger protects law-abiding citizens from the dastardly plots of Noodles Romanoff and his evil crime organisation N.A.S.T.Y.
Finally, Gulliver's Travels is the animated telling of Jonathan Swift's classic tale of a man washed up on an island of little people.
