Not to mention Fraggle Rock proper to Blu-ray! Though, as it was done on video, it remains to see how it will come out in HD.

Not sure if I need 2SD, but I'm curious about the new SS, which I never saw.

Super-Secret Secret Squirrel was actually pretty cool; a worthy follow-up to the original TV series, IMO. The main difference being that all of the characters are animals .. and the addition of the 'Agent 99-esque' character, Penny.

2 Stupid Dogs is just dumb fun. :) Though, it could be 'repetitive', at times; like its contemporary, Ren & Stimpy, it latched onto certain running gags/catchphrases and ran with them across multiple short cartoons, often without context .. because if it was funny once, it's funny every time, right..? (little dog: "no")

Both are important shows, however, for their role as an incubator for the core talent that would forge Cartoon Network's identity in the ensuing decade.

I have seen a number of 2SD cartoons, since they appeared as a bonus on so many H-B tapes back then. I found them okay, but now in retrospect I can appreciate them more for the reasons you mentioned.
