Rocky & Bullwinkle & Friends: Complete Season 1 (2003)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Release Date: Aug 05, 2003; DVD Release Date: Aug 05, 2003

On the surface, it was just a goofy cartoon about a flying squirrel and talking moose, but for all its silliness (once again: flying squirrel and talking moose), Rocky & Bullwinkle was surprisingly sophisticated. The duo's first adventure not only taped the Cold War space race, but unfolded over an astounding 40 installments. The ''friends'' in question are a mixed lot (Dudley Do-Right can do no wrong, while Mr. Peabody is like the schoolyard know-it-all you wish would just shut his yap), but whenever the moose is loose, so are the laughs. EXTRAS You get a special Savings Stamp Club episode and never-before-seen bumpers featuring a wacky Bullwinkle puppet, but the notorious Boris Badenov steals the show with one hilarious promo clip.
