Title Best
Wacky Races-Volume 2R1

    A very sad state of affairs when looking at the similar disc available in Region 1. That release has some really good extras included in a really nicely packaged set. First and foremost, rather than just releasing a few episodes on each disc separately as is the case in Region 4, the Region 1 release spans three discs and covers all 34 episodes of the series.

    The Region 4 disc misses out on;

  • All 34 episodes on three discs.
  • Rearview Mirror: A Look Back at Wacky Races featurette.
  • Spin-out Spin-offs: A ten minute look at the two shows that were spun off from Wacky Races: The Perils of Penelope Pitstop and Dastardly and Muttley in Their Flying Machines.
  • Audio commentary - Four of the races have commentaries from Hanna Barbera veterans.
  • On screen trivia track on two episodes.
  • Easter Egg

    The Region 1 disc misses out on;

  • Swedish Dolby Digital 1.0 soundtrack

    The harsh treatment given to the Region 4 release is a real shame, since this is one of the handful of animated series from the 1960s just crying out for a properly restored and packaged set aimed fair and square at collectors. If that sounds like you it is hard to go past the Region 1 version.
