Wow! Now to decide if I want to double-dip the first 4 seasons for the package...

Same predicament as me. I had the first 4 seasons but went ahead since season 5 is still over $20

How is the item packaged? Discs stacked? or the season sets within the box?

Thanks OP - been wanting the 5th season for ages - this is still cheaper than buying the last one alone.

Thanks op for the heads up! Order put in, and will arrive via priority mail. This is a great deal considering,
this set is presently $50 at Amazon. It's still $15 cheaper than the upcoming lightning deal.

From one of the Amazon reviews:

I received this set yesterday and,I hate the way they have placed the DVDs!

This is the kind of way none of us like, where the discs just slip into a cardboard pocket. Its tough to try and grab the disc out and also, as is always the case when DVDs are placed this way, there is a lot of scuffs and scratches on the DVDs. And then there is the problem of trying to put the DVD back into the pocket. At the price they are charging for this, you would think they would have perhaps put the single season sets into this box or, used hubs to hold the discs so they would not get scratched and scuffed.

Re: Rocky & Bullwinkle & Friends: The Complete Series - $19.99 @ JR.com

Thanks OP! For all the stated imperfections/nitpicks with the way these cartoons have been handled on DVD, $20 for the whole thing is still way too good to turn down.

Between the Laurel & Hardy Essential box deal and this, J&R has gotten the bulk of my BF week shopping! Who knew?

Re: Rocky & Bullwinkle & Friends: The Complete Series - $19.99 @ JR.com

Now for some seriously dumb questions...

I haven't watched Rocky & Bullwinkle since I was young. I don't even remember what it was called but I don't remember "Friends" as being part of the title. So, is this "Rocky & Bullwinkle & Friends" set the complete series that I saw when I was young (i.e. in the 70's) or is this some newer series?

People are sure the Amazon lightning deal is going to be $35 on Sunday rather than less than $20? Normally one doesn't know the price unless it's listed in the BF lightning deals calendar which this set isn't for tomorrow. I don't want to buy from J&R unless we're sure the Amazon deal is $35 and these are shows I watched when I was young.

Is this Speed Racer gift set in the car packaging (with no details on J&R's site) the same 6 DVD one that Amazon sells for $19.99 without the car packaging?

Where do I find the Laurel & Hardy Essential box deal and for how much? I searched on Laurel & Hardy and none of the items had "Essential" in the title. I would like to get a cheap but decent set of some of their non-silent works someday.

Yes it's the same series you watched as a kid and the deals calendar shows $34.99 for me.

The Speed Racer gift set is the one with the tin Mach 5. It's different from the one at Amazon. The Mach 5 edition is available from sellers at Amazon starting at $40.

Thanks. I just ordered it from J&R. I'm surprised it isn't OOS already. I also refreshed the Amazon calendar and now I see the Rocky & Bullwinkle set. It wasn't there when I checked earlier, so I guess it's a late addition.

Thanks. I'm not into odd packaging even if it looks cool because it doesn't fit nicely on my shelves. Does it come with a normal package (like shown on Amazon) inside the car or is the car the packaging for the discs? Also, other than the packaging are the 6 DVDs inside either set the same?

Manzana, the Mach 5 holds the dvds inside. You get all 52 episodes on 5 discs as well as a disc of bonus features.

"NOW HERE'S SOMETHING WE HOPE YOU'LL REALLY LIKE!"

WOW! This is what I'm talkin' about when it comes to Black Friday! What a deal! Thank you and a hearty hand clasp to BACIGALUP for the alert on this. Probably the best bargain I've gotten so far along with BEN HUR (if that one comes through).

Re: Rocky & Bullwinkle & Friends: The Complete Series - $19.99 @ JR.com

WOW, just WOW.

I was actually thinking about going for the LD if the price was 25-30. A real no brainer for me. Picked up the Speed Racer set as well (even though I have it already --- I really wanted that packaging!).

Thanks OP!

(Though I really need to be more careful. I didn't read the post thoroughly and almost checked out WITH postage. I actually found the "friends" thing on my own. I think being at the computer for the last week is taking its toll!)


EDIT: I hope that Speed Racer is really the one with the Car. That may just be a stock picture that everyone had at one time and J&R just didn't change it. I guess I'll keep my order for now, but I won't be too happy if it's the reg. packaging.

Quick! Can someone tell me how long this deal will last?

It says it can ship to Canada for only $5.95, with "Mail Innovations Super Saver Shipping $5.95". What is that? Thanks, if anyone can tell me.

EDIT: Balls. It says in their help section "Canadian Shipping is via UPS Worldwide". IE, it will be $53 to ship to Canada. Fabulous.

Re: Rocky & Bullwinkle & Friends: The Complete Series - $19.99 @ JR.com

Wow, I thought I had a good deal months ago when I bought the Rocky & Bullwinkle set from Amazon for ~$47. But I did pick up Speed Racer just now, and with free shipping. Kudos all around! I know the SR set is far from perfect, but had been kicking myself for not buying the keepcase version for the same price at Wal Mart, back in the spring.

@JoeySeven:

"Dirty E word"? Sorry, guess I'm not thinking clearly either. The only "catches" in the Friends With Benefits program are that they reserve the right to send email marketing (but opt-out is easy), and also charge for the program upon renewal (after 12 months). But you could cancel membership through their web site once your merchandise arrives. It saved me a $4.95 shipping charge, so I can tolerate a little inconvenience.
