DVD Review: CatDog Season 2 Part 2

My family and I recently received a copy of the new DVD CatDog Season 2 Part 2 to review.

One of the newer releases from the Nickelodeon vault, CatDog originally aired back in the 90's. Cat and Dog were "conjoined twins" - cat and dog joined in the middle. It made for some amusing fun, as they were complete opposites in just about everything - Cat was tidy, Dog was a slob for instance. For all their differences though, they were best friends. The show is geared towards the 7 to 12 year old crowd. There's a bit of questionable humor in this show at times, so make it your call on what you are comfortable with your child viewing at what age.

Season Two Part Two is a two disc set that contains the last ten mostly double story episodes of season two: "Surfing' CatDog" / "Guess Who's Going to Be Dinner!", "It's a Wonderful Half Life" / "Shepherd Dog", "Dog Power" / "It's a Jungle in Here!", "The House of CatDog" / "CatDog Campers", "Let the Games Begin!" / "Winslow Falls in Love", "Royal Dog" / "Springtime for CatDog", "A Dog Ate My Homework" / "The End", "Extra! Extra!" / "CatDog Squared" "Cliff's Little Secret" / "Freak Show", and "A Very CatDog Christmas".

There are no special features available on this DVD. I give up when it comes to these releases by Shout Factory. I love having these shows available on DVD, don't get me wrong - but it would be nice to get the odd bonus feature here or there, especially since they keep splitting seasons in half like they are doing with this series.

CatDog Season 2 Part 2 will be available on DVD this coming Tuesday, September 25th, 2012. Rated TV-Y, it is full frame format, with a total running time of roughly four hours. The suggested retail price is $19.93, but Amazon has it available on pre-order for $14.99 as of this posting. (Netflix users: this title is not currently available for streaming, but add it to your DVD queue to be notified when it is available.)

I received a copy of this DVD in order to view it and share my thoughts on it. All opinions are my own.
