On my old computer I used up all of the region 1 settings on my DVD drive twice over - first with the DVD-ROM drive that came with the PC and then with the DVD-RW drive I replaced it with. I haven't bothered doing so with my new computer because I've got a multi region DVD player and an adequate TV to play it on (cheap TV's aren't NTSC compatible and you get the 'green screen' problem when trying to watch R1 DVD's on such a TV).
Sounds like a good deal there Ken. I don't ever remember watching Dino Riders as a kid but I have seen the intro on Youtube before. I'll have to watch an episode or two sometime - maybe it was one of those cartoons that I watched back in the day but can't actually remember watching.
Gizmoduck was better known as Fenton Crackshell and he appeared in both Duck Tales and Darkwing Duck I think. I did check on the Wikipedia entries for both Duck Tales and Darkwing Duck yesterday but I've since forgotten exactly what I read.
For years the Paw Paw Bears cartoon had been racking my brain. I could remember watching a show where they brought a giant totem to life but couldn't think which cartoon it was. It was only when I was idly stumbling through old cartoon intros on YouTube that I found it and decided to watch an episode. I was disappointed that it didn't live up to my expectations and thought that it was just too uninteresting to watch another episode. But then, thats what nostalgia does to you.
