This DVD collection has been mastered from 16mm reduction prints but is so highly compressed to fit more than 200 minutes of content on a single-sided DVD that the picture is coarsely rendered, and looks terrible on a high-definition system.

Some of the films are accompanied by synchronized sound effects and music scores performed on digital keyboards by Don Kinnier, and some are accompanied by soundtracks compiled from preexisting recordings.

For reviews of the individual films, see our pages: Be Your Age on Home Video; Fluttering Hearts on Home Video; Mighty Like a Moose on Home video.
