Part 3. Annie Awards. Chris Mitchell for "The Stink of Fear: Chapter One" — Characters: Keiko Murayama for "The Stink of Fear: Chapter One". Daytime Emmy Awards. Ended Toonsylvania Invasion America Alienators: A script was written, storyboards were produced, the network gave it a green light, but the project was canceled because of objections from the NFL. Actual team owners were parodied and Boris was fixing the game.
Another revival attempt took place at Disney in the mid s, back when they were distributing the show on VHS. Before the two presented their pitch, they soon found out Disney did not have the rights to the actual series, only to the video distribution of the old Bullwinkle show, and the concept was abandoned. The program debuted on home video with two compilation CED Videodiscs released by RCA during the format's rise in the early s, featuring complete, uncut story arcs and accompanying alternating segments and bumpers.
These are presented differently from when broadcast. Two "Rocky and Bullwinkle" chapters were sometimes edited together into one removing the "titles" for the next chapters as well as part of the recap at the beginning of the next , usually showing the storyline in four or five chapters per video. For example, the episode Wossamotta U. The "Bullwinkle Show" closing was used on these.
The first eight videos were released under the "Classic Stuff" banner, with covers and titles being parodies of famous paintings or painters. Four more videos were released under the "Funny Stuff" banner, but unlike the first eight, these were not numbered, the video titles matched the title of the featured "Rocky and Bullwinkle" storyline, and the covers represented scenes from shows such as Bullwinkle pulling a rhino out of a hat as the cover for "Painting Theft".
The change in the banner might have been due to a video magazine publishing a letter criticizing the editing. Years after the Buena Vista releases ended, another series of "Rocky and Bullwinkle" VHS tapes were released, both separately and as a boxed set.
However, these were released through Goodtimes Video and were not authorized by Ward Productions. The copyright status of these 98 episodes along with some episodes of Hoppity Hooper is disputed. Releases then stalled until , when season 4 was released, in part to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the series. A standalone release of season 5 was released on March 29, The DVD releases differ somewhat from the originals.
The original opening bumpers as seen on the network run were restored, but the title of the show was replaced with the name "The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle and Friends" never used during the show's television run and a modern logo with styling inconsistent with the rest of the animation pictured somewhat clumsily inserted into the original bumpers.
Some segments were moved from their position in the original episodes. Mathematically, this makes sense since the total number of supporting features assuming two used per show exactly equals the number of shows created during the first four seasons. The first set, most of the second set, and the fifth season set use the second opening and closing used for the Rocky and His Friends broadcast, while the last two story arcs in the second set, as well as the third and fourth season sets, use the original opening and closing from the Rocky and His Friends broadcast.
In addition, the first four season sets include optional Spanish-language audio tracks. In , Classic Media released a series of "best of" DVD compilations of popular segments of the series: These compilations contain episodes from the entire run of the show. During the time the show was available on Hulu it was offered as a free series before it went to a subscription-only model , the DVD version of the episodes were used instead of the syndication prints.
