Predating the bicentennial, The Funky Phantom was a unique take on the detective formula cartoons Hanna Barbera was cranking out since Scooby-Doo. However, this one had a lot more going on. The love triangle between Augie, April and Skip (voiced by Monkees' Micky Dolenz) was something new to the formula. Add a cowardly ghost (Daws Butler) and his ghost cat, and you've got a clever 70s cartoon. The box set has the shows complete and looking better than they ever did, packaged in a very nice looking box. True, some of the animation leaves a bit to be desired (as most of Hanna Barbera's 70s fodder often does), but it still is a fun, nostalgic trip.

Nice classic

I bought this because an enjoyable episode appeared on the DVD release 1970s Cartoons. I like the series as it was created to mimic the success of Scooby-Doo.

    Watching old shows like Funky Phantom brings back memories of growing up as a kid and today's cartoons aren't up to par like this show is.

      Comments about Funky Phantom (DVD):

      This is a fun show if you like Scooby Doo and similar programs. A little more on the humerous than scary/spooky side though. Love these HB made-to-order sets, and I hope they keep making more. Anxious for Clue Club to be released.

      Comments about Funky Phantom (DVD):

      I really loved this show as a kid in the 70's. It is kind of a copy cat of Scooby Doo which is my favorite cartoon of all time. But Funky Phantom is a caool character in his owm way and his cat rocks. It brings back a lot of great memories of my childhood getting up early Saturday morning and watching cartoons and eating cereal :)

                  Comments about Funky Phantom (DVD):

                  Familiar with many H-B shows and look forward to more, however... disc 4's mastering leaves a bit to be desired. Five episodes on a single-layer disc means lower bit-rate for each episode but it wasn't maxed out. Each of the five eps. suffer at least a bit. Some won't be bothered by this but the most glaring spot is when blocking appears at the 14min mark for approx. 20 seconds. on April's Foolish Day. Cust. Svc suggests replacement/refund but this is not a defect but a conversion issue. Multiple passes during the video conversion to create the DVD master would prevent such issues. I can only hope future sets are handled with more care. I have sample images for reference but will refrain. I feel self concious for this critique but if WB is able to look closer at the mastering process this can only benefit us all. In any case, keep them coming!

                    One of my all-time favorites! Finally on DVD! Thanks WB Archive for making this release happen. It was great to see these again (the episodes look great!), and in broadcast order, no less. Looking forward to more and more and more HB releases!

                      This set is unique, but you probably have it down if you plan on purchasing this one. Personally, I have a lot of others that I cherish more, but it is worth adding if you are a fan of HB. The formula stays the same. However, for old fans like me, that is fine. I like the trek back in time.
