Superfriends season one DVD cover

Super Friends: Season One, Vol. One

by Suzanne 12/31/09

Back in the 70's, there wasn't a lot of scifi, fantasy, or animation on DVD, compared to what we have today. We didn't have very many channels, and only a few people had cable TV (which was mostly movies). Comic books were very good then, but the animated superhero shows were not that great,  and they were mostly aimed at young kids. Both the animation and stories lacked the sophistication that teens or adults would like, such as what we have today on shows like Justice League Unlimited.

I watched Superfriends, one of the best of the animated superhero shows back then, even though it wasn't that good, just because I was a comic book fan. At the time, I enjoyed it, for the most part. It's not really anything an adult or teen would probably enjoy now because it's just too simple and young, with lessons for children, Scooby-Doo-like characters added for the kids, and so-so animation.

I don't know why it took them 37 years to come out with the show on DVD. It's certainly something that any superhero collector who grew up back then would want to have in their collection, for nostalgia if nothing else. Kids will love it, too. Plus it's nice and wholesome, and somewhat educational.

This is the first season. Hopefully they will come out with more later. The extras are pretty limited. There is a Super Friends interactive quiz, and that's about it.

Definitely buy this for your young superhero fan!
