Super Friends: Season One, Vol. One
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
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
Definitely buy this for your young superhero fan!
