Top Cat - Volume 1 [DVD] £3.98 - Penny more at HMV & Play if you want cashback - then around £5.50
Although it only ran for one series, TOP CAT retains a permanent spot in the pantheon of Hanna-Barbera cartoon classics for its slyly subversive, yet comically light-hearted, anti-authoritarian themes. Set in the trash-strewn alleyways of New York City, the animated series centres around charismatic con-man Top Cat and his gang of lowlife felines as they dodge nemesis Officer Dibble in their eternal quest for get-rich schemes.
Dastardly And Muttley - Vol. 1 [DVD] or Vol 2
Take a 70's nostalgia trip with Dastardly & Muttley as they try in vain to 'catch the pigeon'. In the WACKY RACES spin-off, Dick Dastardly--sporting a rather dubious handlebar moustache--leads the Vulture Squadron, a ragtag group of characters whose sole purpose, it seems, is to stop a carrier pigeon from delivering messages to the other side. Using a variety of WWI aircraft fitted with bizarre and ridiculous contraptions, Dastardly will stop at nothing to trap his avian nemesis. Along for the ride is his snickering canine sidekick Muttley, who fancies himself as a bit of a heroic figure and often retreats into his own fantasy world. Features the legendary vocal talents of Paul Winchell (Tigger) and Don Messick (Scooby-Doo).
