Editorial Reviews

Featuring the episodes in the three-segment form as they originally aired, these popular retro hits take the action around the world and into outer space! First, winged hero Birdman harnesses the power of the sun to fight criminal masterminds like Number One, Vulturo and Dr. Millenium. Then, cosmic crusaders Gravity Girl, Vapor Man and Meteor Man - better known as the Galaxy Trio - serve up justice in space as they travel the universe eradicating evil and procuring peace across the cosmos. And finally, it's more Birdman with his trusty eagle Avenger and his namesake battle cry that strikes fear into the hearts of his enemies. Fly away with these favorite retro heroes as they deliver old-school justice in this 2-disc collector's dream compilation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Birdman & the Galaxy Trio April 2, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Now this is a truly good choice. Can't wait for the release date. Wow.

All 40 Birdman cartoons, and 20 Galaxy Trio cartoons presented as complete shows. For years we've laughed at the way "Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law" poked fun at this show. Now we can see the original Super Hero action that inspired it all.

Semi-regularly, throughout the series, you'll see winged Super-hero Birdman gain powers from the sun's energy, and take on F.E.A.R., a criminal organization which sometimes does its own dirty work, and sometimes employs super villains like Nitron, Dr Freezoid and Murko the Marauder.

Unique to the time (1967), they introduced a new character "Birdboy" in the later Birdman episodes, and developed him well, as he assisted Birdman in return conflicts with Birdman's old foes like Dr Millenium and Vulturo.

The Galaxy Trio stories are a fantastic outer space sci-fi Super-hero concept. Meteor Man (an elastic enlargeable hero), Vapor Man (who can turn into various gasses, as well as fire them from his hands), and Gravity Girl (who can reduce or increase gravity) fly through space in their ship Condor 1, defeating many foes. In particular, the music used in "Space Slaves" and "Peril of the Prison Planet" will make me keen to play them again and again.

LET'S HOPE THEY REPEAT THIS GREAT IDEA THEY'VE DONE, BY RELEASING THE 1972 "SEALAB 2020" SERIES which inspired the more recent satire "Sealab 2021".

5.0 out of 5 stars Birdman and the Galaxy Trio... May 24, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
For those that don't remember, Hanna-Barbera ruled Saturday Mornings from

7:00 am (Atom Ant/Secret Squirrel/The Impossibles/Frankenstein Jr.) until

1:30 pm (Johnny Quest) in the 1966/1967 time range.

The most interesting point I wish to make is this:

All three major networks had Hanna-Barbera cartoons. Stranger still, I

don't remember ANY of them clashing with each other during the day!

In Los Angeles, one could flip from chs. 2 (KNXT - now KCBS/Columbia)to

4 (KNBC/National) to 7 (KABC/American) and catch about all of their

cartoons. (I seem to remember Birdman airing on Ch. 4 at the time)

Birdman - It was never said, but he worked with 'our' US Government in

battles with the bad guys. As Communism was big in the 60's, the over-

tones were crystal clear.

The Galaxy Trio - Interplanetary Police who did battle with all kinds

of criminals.

This show wasn't my favorite Hanna-Barbera Animated show (that honor is

reserved for The Herculoids (which aired on CBS) and Mighty Mightor

(which also aired on NBC), but I enjoyed it enough back then to want

to buy it now ($20/US)! It still garners a Five-Star rating!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hardly terrible July 24, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I surely dont see how someone can say this is terible.I remember these as a child and they always made me happy on saturday morning.I was always glued to the set and didnt move.I guess the packaging is subpar and you need to put some effort into getting the disks out.No big deal i say as watching these again will be well worth it.Sometimes you find packaging like this but oh well,im just greatful to be able to own them and leave it at that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic cartoons September 23, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I only wish Birdman and the Galaxy Trio had stayed around for longer. I would have liked to the the Galaxy Trio especially have a more expanded role and longer cartoons. But as it stands this collection of both Birdman/Galaxy Trio are more than ample to tied me over and give me something else to remind me of some really great cartoons back in the day...not that isnt like that now. Its just more than i identified with. I remember seeing both the Birdman and GT being aired on Cartoon Network awhile ago. If not for that i probably would've forgotten about them altogether.

Thankfully i didnt and i bought this nice collection and priced well also. Its not a bother with the packaging to me, i never had a problem getting the discs out. Being for when this cartoons were made the quality is pretty decent. It's not going to be spectacular these cartoons were done back in the late 60s. Even still they hold up well to the things available today. Cop this classic cartoon series and it will give you a good idea of what Hanna Barbera brought to the table in terms of cartoon presentation and just all around good times for TV viewers for any and all ages.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hanna-Barbera's Forgotten Hero & The Galaxy Trio On DVD! September 29, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Hoping to capitalize on their phenomenal hit series Space Ghost & Dino Boy (1966), Hanna-Barbera presented viewers with the similar yet cool-in-its-own-way series Birdman & The Galaxy Trio (1967) the following season. Armed with solar rays & shield and eagle sidekick Avenger, Sun god Ra-inspired Birdman battled earthbound villainy, typically at the request of contact Falcon 7 while elemental heroes Galaxy Trio comprised of Meteor Man, Vapor Man and Gravity Girl (not unlike the Terrific Trio from Batman Beyond Season One episode "Heroes"), engaged in intergalactic struggles on behalf of the Galactic Patrol. Though Birdman failed to live up to the success of Space Ghost, reruns on Cartoon Network/Boomerang and the hit spin-off show Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law helped to renew interest in the forgotten hero. Featuring superb design work by late great artist Alex Toth, music by Ted Nichols, a solid voice cast including Birdman himself, Keith Andes and exotic environments, Birdman & Galaxy Trio - The Complete Series ably provides tons of soaring retro fun and non-stop action '60s Hanna-Barbera style. This 2-disc (420 min.) set features all 20 episodes from the series in its original three-segment form (1 Galaxy Trio sandwiched between 2 Birdman segments); Full-Frame (1.33:1) video; English audio; Closed Captioning; plus the following Special Feature: "Birdman: The Forgotten Hero." Considering the lack of remastering and the age of the show, the picture and sound are fairly good, despite some noticeable debris. Read more ›

3.0 out of 5 stars Fine for young kids, but
It was way too superficial to interest an adult. No origin story, for Birdman or the trio. Flat villians who want to take over the world. We've seen it all before
