What’s it about
It had been decades since Disney (Buena Vista) released the gala Moose and Squirrel VHS tapes, to much hoopla and shabang. Then came the long-awaited fourth season from Classic Media and Vivendi Entertainment. When the box set of all five seasons appeared in 2011, viewers despaired that the fifth season might never make it out on its own. But despair not, gentle viewer, for here they are, all 33 episodes of the climactic final season of Moose and Squirrel, on four one-sided discs, somehow in one DVD case.
The packaging falls a bit short of the deluxe presentations of the other seasons, but then again, the fourth season only held 19 episodes on two discs. The only extra on the fifth season set is “Goof Gas Attack” audio outtake, AKA “The longest laugh in history”, but keep in mind when we say episodes, we mean entire shows, including the various well-known bumpers, like “Eenie Meenie Chilibeani, the spirits are about to speak!” from Bullwinkle gazing at a crystal ball, with Rocky’s reply, “Are they friendly spirits?” and Bullwinkle’s retort, “Friendly? Just listen!” as an imaginative segue into a cereal ad, sometimes continuing the look of the series, as Cap’n Crunch ads were also designed by Jay Ward Studios.
