EXCELLENT TREASURES SET, BUT THERE WAS ROOM TO MAKE THIS A COMPLETE SERIES!
By ! MR. KNOW IT ALL ;-b
Wave 6 ends with another Mickey Mouse Club title, this one featuring The Hardy Boys. I wasn't born early enough to have seen these shows first run, but I found it to be a good format and engaging throughout. Once again after watching so many cartoon shorts on these sets, it's a welcome change to see another treasures set devoted to some of the live action shows.
The first disc contains 9 episodes from the classic TV show and some interesting extras. One of them is the introduction episode of TMMC for the series. The other a short feature from Dixon to Disney about how the book's story details were changed(slightly) for the TV show. The episodes here all look very clean with minimal artifacts etc., but the extras seem a little light considering they didn't keep the 12 minute episodes in their original format as part of the TMMC TV show.
The second disc has the remaining 10 episodes that made up the first serial which aired on the second season of TMMC. An on screen interview with the two young stars Tim Considine and Tommy Kirk with Leonard Maltin and two stills galleries round out disc two.
This is another worthy treasures set, but considering the running time of these two discs, they could have fit the other Hardy Boys story on this set making it a complete series. You woulod think since they took the serial out of the TV show saving lots of room, if would have made a great choice to add the rest of the serial on this set. I hope they will continue and finish the series along with Elfego Baca, The Swamp Fox and Spin and Marty....looks like plenty of material to release another "Treasures" wave to me.

IT NEVER GETS OLD! THIS DVD IS A MUST HAVE!
By Susan Allman-Carlo
Recently purchased the Mickey Mouse Club DVD featuring the Hardy Boy's mystery based on the TOWER TREASURE. Had purchased this for eight year old grandson who is beginng to read the Hardy Boy books by Franklin Dixon. We put the DVD in on Christmas Eve for him, but the whole family ended up watching it from beginning to end! We had all seen it when we were kids, but found that IT NEVER GETS OLD! Tim Considine and Tommy Kirk brought the Hardy Boys alive for both us and our grandson! It meant SO much more to be able to picture the Hardy Boys as real people! This DVD is a MUST HAVE! If you liked this, you will LOVE the "four movie" Nancy Drew DVD starring Bonita Granville as Nancy. Both the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew are in black & white. How do you tell if a movie is GREAT? After the first ten minutes, you become no longer aware that it's not in color! It's so captivating that it actually COLORS your mind!
