The Heathcliff and Dingbat Show DVD Review



Synopsis: The sassiest, frassiest, classiest cat, Heathcliff, jumps from the comic strip to the TV screen in the first of his animated adaptations and is joined by the silliest trio of monsters ever seen, the aptly named Dingbat and the Creeps. The feline half of the show is pure classic Heathcliff high jinks, with the highfalutin’ low-livin’ tomcat living the life while romancing Sonja, avoiding the dog-catcher and tormenting Spike. And as an added soupcon of catnip, Heathcliff is voiced by the legendary man of 1,000 voices, Mel Blanc! Meanwhile, a dog heads up the second half, but this is no common canine. Dingbat is a vampire dog, who with fellow Creeps the fat skeleton Sparerib and teamleader Nobody, a talking jack-o-lantern, makes up the strangest service biz ever seen, Odd Jobs, Inc. So grab a seat and get ready for the funniest antics this side of alleyway and graveyard in this complete 2-Disc, 13-Episode collection.

Review: We love Heathcliff here at the Legion.  Some might tell you that you need to pick between Heathcliff and Garfield....not true!  We love 'em both.  This cool new online only release from the warner archive features the old 1980-82 Ruby-Spears Heathcliff cartoon, which had Mel Blanc on board as the voice of Heathcliff!    This was a fantastic show back in it's day....its not to be confused with the later DIC Heathcliff cartoon that ran in the mid-80s.  This one was two seasons, the first called Heathcliff and Dingbat..the second was Heathcliff and Marmaduke.  This DVD release is all 13 episodes of the first season, Heathcliff and Dingbat.  This cartoon, and the backup Dingbat cartoons, are highly enjoyable and hold up quite well.   This one is a gem and a MUST for any fan of vintage animation.
