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.

3.0 out of 5 stars PREPARE FOR A....... CRASH LANDING !! July 25, 2007
Format:DVD
I bought this set purely for nostalgia and I'm glad I did, but it appears that little effort went into restoring these episodes for this DVD release. The video transfer suffers from all sort's of age related debris, scratches, speckling and is nowhere near the quality of some of the other Hanna Barbera releases. As for the overall packaging and condition of the discs, some fans will definitely be disappointed.

The packaging is absolutely cheap and the quality of the discs is just plain terrible. In this set, you'll get a very cheap cardboard package and two double sided discs that sit on top of one another. The discs are very hard to remove from the package and chances are they'll get scratched, if they're not already.

I pre-ordered this set from Amazon and when I received it the discs were already full of fingerprints and scratches. I contacted Amazon customer service immediately and they offered a replacement set without question and issued an apology. When the second set arrived it was riddled with deep scratches, more fingerprints and some kind of residue on the discs making them unplayable. It's evident from this release that the company doing the DVD replicating for Warner has some serious quality control problems and they need to be addressed immediately.

As for Amazon, they resolved the problem to my satisfaction with a level of customer service I've come to expect. I wish I could say the same for Warner Studios. As for an apology, Warner should apologize to all the fans and to the people at Hanna Barbera for the way they handled this DVD release.

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

If you go to YouTube.com and enter "Super President" you can see the opening credits -- pretty poor quality, but considering how little known that cartoon is, I was surprised to find it at all. I only barely recall it; I remember Super President catching some sort of robotic villain... Read More
