If you bought The New Adventures of Superman - (DC Comics Classic Collection)or The Adventures of Aquaman - The Complete Collection (DC Comics Classic Collection), you have seen most of the episodes of 1966's the Superman/Aquaman Hour. These superhero cartoons were bookend between a superman or an aquaman episode. If you love classic animation of the 1960 DC heroes, this DVD is what you need to get.

1966, I remember parking my butt on the couch in front of the tv set and watching these shows. Similar to what kids do today with shows like Ben 10, TMNT and Johnny Test. These cartoon are over 40 years old and the quality is still there

Here's what you will be getting on this collection:
Justice League--
Between Two Armies
Target Earth
Bad Day of Black Moutain

Teen Titans
The Monster Machine
Monster Roundup
Operation Rescue

The Flash
The Chemo Creature
Take A Giant Step
To Catch a Blue Bolt

Green Lantern
Evil is as Evil Does
The Vanishing World
Sirena, The Empress of Evil

Hawkman
Peril from Pluto
A Visit to Venus
the 23th Dimension

The Atom
Invasion of the Beetle People
The Planet Master
House of Doom

You must rememember these are the 1960's incarnation of these DC heroes. They are well done Saturday Morning animation. It is not as slick as today's animation. I have seen all of these cartoon at Science Fiction conventions.

The previous reviews give an accurate account of which cartoons to expect in this series.
Here's a lot of superfluous waffle, for all those who actually want the fine details of how these cartoons were originally aired.
They first screened as part of the 1967 Superman Aquaman Hour of Adventure, which also included (per episode) 2 Superman stories (not yet on DVD. See below), 2 Aquaman stories, and a Superboy story (release problems detailed below).
So normally, following an Aquaman story, you'd have seen (on tv) a collection of Justice Leaguers and Teen Titans moving around the screen to a 30 second Ted Knight narration "Stay tuned for another exciting adventure, featuring a guest star from this world of Super Super Heroes."
Then you'd see a commercial break.
Then you'd get the customized beginning theme for a Justice League/ Atom / Hawkman / Flash/ Green Lantern / Teen Titans story.(If you saw these guest star stories on the Superman Batman Adventures on Cartoon Network in the early 2000s, you'd have noticed that these two "Stay tuned" and "Character Begin" themes were missing, and the stories were often ruthlessly cut too. (One of the worst examples was in the Justice League America story "Bad Day on Black Mountain." The team divides up their tasks. Flash says "Atom and I go for the rocket base." (The actual sequence of Atom and Flash doing their mission was completely edited out.
So I'm very pleased to see that Warner are releasing this lot in full, and can only hope it will include the customized character begin themes and the "Stay tuned..." theme (even if only as extras).
In Australia, of course, we saw the shows separately. The Superman (and Superboy) cartoons (from the two latter shows) were just packaged with the previous Superman series.

Four stars for this one, with the proviso that much of my rating is based on biased perspective. Man, I grew up on Filmation shows! More objectivity would probably garner this dvd set a three star rating from me. But, fellas, nostalgia's a powerful thing...

Way back in the stone age (that would be 1967), the Filmation group produced the Superman/Aquaman Hour, a CBS Saturday morning cartoon show and one of my tried-and-true favorites when I was a kid. But with so many menaces constantly itching to take over the Earth or just act all nefarious, it takes more than Superman or Aquaman to get the job done. Guest star stints in the form of 7-minute shorts were integrated into the hourly series, as Hawkman, Flash, Atom, and Green Lantern engaged in their own solo exploits. As the Justice League, these guys (with Superman) banded together to fend off cheesy alien attacks. And with assists from the Teen Titans and Superboy, the world got saved but plenty.

The way it worked with the Superman/Aquaman Hour, the first half hour belonged to the Man of Steel, with Aquaman dishing out his own two segments in the second half hour. Sandwiched in between would be the "guest" superhero cartoons, which were on rotation with the Superboy shorts. Anyway, with Aquaman's animated adventures already compiled in his own box set (The Adventures of Aquaman - The Complete Collection (DC Comics Classic Collection)), it didn't take long before a collection of the guest spots was released.

confused about dvds
"DC Super Heroes: The Filmation Adventures" contains different material than the Superman sets.

I put together a Listmania list that hopefully clears up any confusion: http://www.amazon.com/Early-DC-Animation-Fleischer-Filmation-Hanna-Barbera-Ruby-Spears/lm/REACDOKV28OO0/
