The All-New Popeye Hour - Classic Hanna-Barbera Series shown in New Popeye Hour Gets Complete Release

Only Sold In Canada, However

Posted by David Lambert
When Hanna-Barbera brought us The All-New Popeye Hour in 1978, there were a few other cartoons mixed into the hour, and one of them was Dinky Dog. Dinky was voiced by none other than Frank Welker, the original voice of "Megatron" from The Transformers as well as "Freddy Jones" (Scooby-Doo), "Abu" (Aladdin) and "Nibbler" Futurama).

During the 16 cartoons produced for Dinky Dog, Welker was joined by the voices of Jean Vander Pyl ("Wilma Flintstone" of The Flintstones & "Rosie the Robot" of The Jetsons), Julie Bennett ("Aunt May" in the '90s Spider-Man cartoons), Frank Nelson ("Ralph Ramsey" and other characters in I Love Lucy) and Jackie Joseph (who also joined Welker in both Gremlins films).

VEI of Canada is going to release Dinky Dog - The Complete Series as a 3-DVD set on February 19th. It will only be sold in Canada, but if it manages to find its way to players in the USA it will, of course, work. Cost is going to be CA$24.95 SRP. Here's a look at the cover art:
