The timeless melodramatic tradition of duelling polar opposites became the foundation of many an animated conflict, but never were Good and Evil so stylistically rendered as in the ROLAND AND RATTFINK cartoons. Square-jawed Roland and the green-complected Rattfink occupy the roles of yin and yang with hilarious aplomb: peacenik vs. warmonger, stalwart singing cowboy vs. scurrilous cattle rustler, effetely sensitive “flower child” vs. bomb-throwing miscreant. This special edition showcases all seventeen episodes of DePatie-Freleng’s ROLAND AND RATTFINK, which rank among Hollywood’s most innovative cartoons of the late ’60s/early ’70s, and continue to inspire laughs in the 21st Century.
