DVD sleeve taken from their site, followed by their description of the disc:
It's the best of the first season of one of television's smartest, savviest, and most subversively funny animated series, ranked by TV Guide as one of the top series of all time. This collection of classic cartoons features the adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle as they evade the clutches of the notorious Boris and Natatsha. Other features include "Fractured Fairy Tales" which upend familiar storybook favorites and "Mr. Peabody" the canine genius who travels through time in the company of his boy Sherman. Sure fun for adults and kids alike!
Don't forget, this is a "while supplies last" offer! Just order a large pizza at regular menu price, and the DVD is yours to keep. The pizza's tasty, so what are you waiting for?
Our thanks to Josh Buescher for tipping us off to this hot deal!
Thanks to "Stephanie," the General Manager of my local Papa Johns, who made sure I got a free Rocky & Bullwinkle
DVD along with my large pizza tonight. From that I managed to scan this much better look at the sleeve and disc of the promotional sampler:
From taking a quick spin of the disc, I found out that the included episodes are the 1st, 3rd, and 5th segments of the "Box Top Robbery" storyline that can be found, of course, on the long-released DVD set Rocky & Bullwinkle & Friends - Complete Season 1
. But, if you don't have that box set yet, then pick up the phone and order yourself a nice hot cheesy disc of pizza, and get a disc to spin along with it...it will remind you why this show is so funny! Don't forget that the Complete Season 2 arrives in stores on August 31st.
