Topic: James Bond Jr. cartoon series

Hello all,

I was thinking recently about the short lived 1991 cartoon series James Bond Jr. and I how I wish that I would come out on DVD.  I have many fond memories of this cartoon as it inspired me to watch the films later on. Many other cartoons series that only got one season are out on DVD( some are exclusive to Region 2 despite being American produced shows), and I am surprised that this show never got a DVD release at all. I really hope that it does come out in the near future, especially since Cartoon Network does not show reruns any more.

I think some episodes are available on YouTube.

"Any of the opposition around..?"

Yeah pretty sure I’ve seen them knocking around You Tube, and I know Calvin Dyson has done review vids on some (but not all) of them. Never watched any myself but I really ought to give them a go out of curiosity.

‘Secret Agent?? On whose side?’

Yes, a few episodes are on You Tube although I really wish that EON would give us a proper release on DVD of all 65 episodes. Like many cartoons back in the VHS era, only a handful of episodes got a release. A lot of older cartoons have gotten DVD releases in the last few years, including many that only ran for one season. If I worked for EON, I would defiantly get in touch with Shout Factory, or some other DVD publisher and release the series.

Still nothing yet official about this series coming to DVD, but I am not giving up hope. Quite a few of my favorite childhood cartoons have taken a few years to come to DVD.* I am really surprised that James Bond Jr. never got a DVD release in the United Kingdom. Quite a few American produced cartoons from years past, have Region 2 DVD releases when they don't have any release/ or a partial release  in the US.

* I remember getting the Time Life release of The Real Ghostbusters on DVD, months after it was offered. This is my all time favorite cartoon series and I was thrill to own the complete series at last.  Sony Pictures took their sweet time releasing a handful of episodes on single volume DVD's, prior to releasing all 140 episodes in order to consumers.
