Countdown To Superfriends

I had to do a little research on Hawkgirl just in case. Hawkman was in animation back in the late 60s, along with Atom, The Flash & Green Lantern.:slightly_smiling_face:

Several years ago, I discovered a DVD set with a few of these 60’s DC cartoons, it was at a time I was tracking down bootlegs of the old Marvel animation from back then, like the amazing Hanna Barbara FF series, and the Hulk, Iron Man, Cap, Sub-Mariner cartoons -all 4 of which kinda suck, cause they’re more motion comic than true animation.

Anyhow, I stumbled upon the DC set on Amazon and bought it immediately. I love them. HBOMax has the Aquaman episodes, and a few of us did a WAL a couple months back. I wish they’d put up the rest of the shows from back then.

PS: So I went to Amazon to look up the collection, in case anyone was interested, the original set is $50 bucks new now, way over priced, though there is a used one for $12. But, it appears that in '14 they split the set up into two discs, and you can get those used cheaper. And who knows, you might find a reasonably priced set on Ebay? It’s called “DC Superheros: The Filmation Adventures.”

Thanks for the info on the DVD sets. I’ve long ago stopped buying home video on physical media. After amassing a pretty good iTunes library and experiencing the convenience of that, I just can’t god back :slightly_smiling_face:. They don’t have these Justice League cartoons though, unfortunately.

As far as I ever saw, the 16 episodes of the Super Friends— essentially season3, that ran before Challenge of the Super Friends-- was never on here.

HBO Max has an inconsistent pattern here-- while the 1987 Jonny Quest episodes are simply there as season 2 of Jonny Quest, Josie and the Pussycats is one show, and Outer Space is listed as another show. Each series of Ben 10 remains a seperate series, as is Scooby Doo Where are you and Scooby Doo and Scrappy Doo. So while they might just put it all out as one show of nine or so seasons, as it was done here-- do you think it would be best to list all seasons as their original. essentally separate shows?

Superfriends – which no one has ever let Aquaman live down, even though batman and Robin are treated as uselessly

All-New Super Friends Hour

Super Friends/Challenge of the Super Friends (best season)

World’s Greatest Super Friends (8 episodes done mostly as a build up to Superman- The Movie)

Super Friends (viginettes done to build up a syndication package that wouldn’t happen for a couple of years-- about two thirds of them appeared in two season on ABC, combined with reruns of previous shorts. All of them would eventually air on the USA Network and in a syndication package or two.)

Super Friends - The Legendary Super Powers show (Firestorm-- and because Olan Soule is now Prof Stein, Adam West becomes… Batman)

Super Powers Team- Galactic Guardians (Cyborg-- and a season cut short by behind the scenes changes at ABC)

There is also the Superman Batman Adventures, combining all the Super Friends episodes with the Filmation episodes of Batman and Superman-- and I think Aquaman right before it got ended by Warner Bros suddenly being direct owners of DC Comics instead of being sister companies under Warner Communications or Time Warner-- whatever it was at that point. It was actually a lot of fun.

@discordia57 and @moro Check out the Filmation Aquaman series on HBO Max. All of the Justice League shorts are in-between segments to the main Aquaman episodes, with the solo-starring character shorts (with The Flash, Hawkman, The Atom and Green Lantern) appearing between other episodes of the show.

The DC Super Heroes: The Filmation Adventures DVDs were pretty neat. I preferred the all-in-one two-disc set, but the subsequent single disc releases were neat too, mainly due to their packaging art that looked nothing like the actual character designs from the show(s), but was cool all the same.
