Special features

There's not a dog in the bunch here. [It] proves again that it's the best cartoon out there today - bar none."[2]
  • DVD-Forum.at, in a review of it, said that "Fans of the series can still strike due to the low price," while calling the episodes featured on the disc "very entertaining and very funny for both young and old."[3]
  • Currently retired critic Roy Hrab of the DVD Verdict, criticized the episodes and the at the time state of the show overall, calling them "less than impressing, even for kids," while also calling the extras "forgettable."[4]
