Hoo-ray! "Rocky and Bullwinkle" Season 5

At last, "The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle Season 5" is here! Well, it will be on March 29. I was worried because there were rumors that Season 5 either would not be released at all or released as a separate season (It is currently available as part of "The Complete Bull" DVD box set). Now I can breathe a sigh of relief.

Season 5 is the final season of "The Bullwinkle Show" from 1963-1964. Jay Ward went on to create "Hoppity Hooper". This season features such classics as "Pottsylvania Creeper" and "Wossamotta U. and of course, the final episodes featuring "Moosylvania Saved".

My only complaints about this series is that they don't have all the original music elements and are missing some classic goodies like Bullwinkle high-kicking it on the stage, which should have been part of Seasons 3, 4 and 5. I'll live, but it's a shame that Classic Media doesn't put the care and attention to find and add these little items even as bonus material.

“Pottsylvania Creeper” SHOULD have been the final episode of The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle! Watch it again, and you’ll see why!

Looking forward to this.
