Meet The Roman Holidays...
from Bangor, MI
About Me Collector
Comments about The Roman Holidays Complete Series (MOD):
For the single season that this aired, it was cute, fun, animated Saturday Morning fare from the folks at Hanna-Barbera. This show was such a rarity that I don't even remember it being a part of USA's Cartoon Express in the late-80s when the 9:00 slot was specifically set aside for Hanna-Barbera rarities (luckily, it aired once or twice when Cartoon Network was airing its previews for its sister station, "Boomerang.") There are those who would disagree with this receiving FIVE stars; and I can concede that detractors have a point. This is not, for one easy example, "The Jetsons" (or for one even easier example, "The Flintstones.") Still, the Roman-themed misadventures of family patriarch, Gus, wife, Laurel (Laurie), tot-genius Precocia, scheming Happius (Hap/Happi) and resident "dino," Brutus, the Lion (a lion utilizing the exact same voice and mannerisms as Daws Butler mainstay, Snagglepuss) were entertaining when treated as their own entity. Plus, we get Dom DeLouise's impressive voice-work debut as cantankerous landlord, Caesar Evictus. The "Roman Holidays" were not treated nearly as well by the creators as "The Flintstones" or "Jetsons" and, therefore, weren't nearly as successful with audiences. However, they are still good clean family fun.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

When in Rome..
from Baytown, TX
As the WB Shop has been making many Hanna-Barbera Classics available for Made-on-Demand DVDs, I'm definitely glad they've brought a rare, overlooked gem to the lineup: The Roman Holidays. Somewhere in the Hanna-Barbera TimeZone, between the Prehistoric realm of Bedrock, and the Futuristic burg of Orbit City, existed a 'modern' family in Ancient Rome known as the Holidays. Augustus (Gus) Holidays usually faced the trials and tribulations of city life with his wife, Laurel (Laurie), his two kids—daughter Preccocia and son Happius (Happy)—and their pet lion, Brutus (voiced by Snagglepuss' Daws Butler).Just as Fred has Mr. Slate, George has Mr. Spacely, Gus deals with Mr. Tycoonius at the Forum Construction Company. However unlike his timely counterparts, Gus' difficulties also occur at home as well as work.Living at the Venus De Milo Apartments, he is ever in constant fear of being thrown out by the aptly-named landlord, Mr. Evictus (Dom DeLuise, in his first vocal role). Usually caused by the problems made either by Happius playing his drums, or Brutus getting into something.Despite what critics have said, The Roman Holidays didn't heavily rely on the anachronistic puns as the Flintstones and Jetsons did. Mainly the only puns applied was either on their names or using Rome in the place of other words. In fact, one running gag was Laurie serving Caesar Salad at every meal ('Caesar Salad, with corn flakes?' Preccocia laments.).One of the interesting aspects comes from the circumstance people hardly believe the series originally aired in 1972. Primarily because as with myself, I didn't learn about The Roman Holidays until about a decade later when it first re-aired on USA's Cartoon Express. As Gus and his family migrated eventually to the Cartoon Network (and later Boomerang), many others began discovering this lost artifact of Hanna-Barbera Chronology.The Roman Holidays' late-blooming came from the element of being put in an early-morning time slot on Saturday Mornings, in the Seventies. During that time, network affiliates normally did one of two things: (1) Pre-empt shows with news programs; and/or (2) Replace low-rated shows with syndicated ones.When the Roman Holidays' aired, many critics panned it as a pale version of Hanna-Barbera's other time-themed shows. Rather odd, since many of the Scooby-based shows did rather well when they first aired in the Seventies.However, when they did re-emerge one decade later, The Roman Holidays became briefly popular for the fact it showed Hanna-Barbera did attempt other time periods for the animated sitcom genre.The one thing I like about this collection is finally seeing all the episodes in the series, unedited, since one problem with the syndicated series was usually having them cut out scenes for time-constraints. Not to mention at times ending up seeing the same episode.For those who remember what Classic Saturday Morning Cartoons were really like, I definitely recommend purchasing The Roman Holidays.

Roman Holiday Strikes again
By E3 the basketball star
Watching this show is very funny and is enjoyable for all ages. How can you go wrong with a lion and a roman family because their shenagians are very comically.
