Overview

After countless packagings of a few episodes here and there, Warner Bros. finally did the right thing and released Challenge of the Super Friends in a two-disc season one set. Now you too can skip through each and every adventure of the Hall of Justice battling the Legion of Doom in the comfort of your own living room with the help of your trusty DVD player. This time, the disc's producers enlist the help of some of DC's renowned comic creators to help join in on the nostalgic fun. Extras on this 16-episode set include a 13-minute featurette "Saturday, Sleeping Bags & Super Friends: A Retrospective" -- a look back at the series from the eyes of artist extraordinaire Alex Ross, along with writers Paul Dini, Mark Waid, Geoff Johns, and the more recent Justice League TV series producer James Tucker. Additionally, Waid and Johns show up on two commentary tracks, where they wax poetic on the characters, their childhood memories, and the sheer shoddiness of the show's production values. With nice picture quality and a solid Dolby Digital Mono sound option, this disc is a must-have for fans of the show and a nice addition to your DVD rack, with packaging designed in line with the Batman: Animated Series -- Volume One box set released at the same time.

    banded together from remote galaxies....

    Greetings from the Hall of justice... Back in 1978, Hannah Barbara introduced an expanded roster of Justice Leaguers"as opposed to a small handfull in the 73' superfriends" and created this wonderfully fun show. unlike the show that came before, Challenge of the superfriends introduces classic villains from the DC comics. Banded together from remote galaxies are the legion of doom. LEd by Lex Luthor(the silver age mad man) they include: Gorilla Grodd, Solomon Grundy, Bizarro, Cheetah, Scarecrow, Riddler, Giganta, Sinestro, Black Manta, toy man, Brainiac and Captain cold. the formula for each episode is pretty simple: the Justice league of America vs the legion of doom. but its the hokiness of the show that makes things fun. the legions schemes include everything from growing gigantic to trying to control apes from gorilla city. The show is definatly in the spirit of the Silver age Justice League comics of the 60s. the only thing missing is Snapper Carr. the show became a part of pop culture. Characters like Apache Cheif(a character created for the show for racial diversity in the league) have been Parodied in Familly Guy and Harvey Birdman. definatly worth owning if you are a fan of the classic silver Age Justice League. so grab your Cereal and your pajamas and get ready to watch hours of cornball fun. on a side note: the commentaries by Mark Waid and Geoff Johns are fun. i wish there were more of them though. otherwise, the set would have gotten five stars. they are fun to listen to. but then again, they are two of my favorite writers and i could listen to them all day.
