Editorial Reviews

A superdog from Planet Krypton, who comes to earth after traveling across the galaxies as a test pilot puppy aboard a malfunctioning rocket ship built by Superman's father. Years later, when the rocket finally reaches Earth, Krypto is a full-grown dog. With no family, he finds a new friend in a young boy named Kevin Whitney, who soon realizes that Kypto has superpowers. With the help of Kevin, Ace the Bathound (Batman's caped canine), Streaky the neighbor's cat, and the superpets in the Dog Star Patrol, Krypto responds to the call of duty, embarking on adventures to save those in need. Volume 1 includes 5 episodes in the order in which they aired: Krypto's Scrypto 1, Krypto's Scrypto 2, Super Flea, A Bug's Strife, Meet the Dog Stars

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally! "Superhero" cartoons for young kids! June 19, 2006
By Eric
Format:DVD
These are excellent retro-style cartoons, perfect for young children. If you are looking for Superman/Batman style entertainment for your kids, without all the explosions and fights, then this is it! My four-year-old loves Superman's dog, and my two-year old loves Streaky the Cat! I would give it five stars, but 60 minutes is pretty skimpy if I'm going to take up space in the DVD cabinet. The first 30 minutes is already marketed on a DVD that comes with Krypto's Rocket Toy. (Which my son, Krypto's #1 fan, already has.) Any fan of Superman will enjoy seeing that his dog Krypto has finally gotten the spotlight he deserves! Krypto was actually in many of the Superman comics of the 50's and 60's. The stories are well written, and targeted to young children. The animation here is top-notch, and may remind you of "the Jetsons" cartoons.

4.0 out of 5 stars A new classic June 21, 2006
By sdp
Format:DVD
This show is trully classic, Paul Dini (writer of the well known Batman, Superman and Justice League cartoons) is part of the project and it shows. Unlike the shows mentioned earlier this show is for young kids, however it is written very well that an adult can sit through the episodes and enjoy them. The whole show feels retro, fromt he theme song to the episode splash. The show so far has also gotten development and keeps getting better with a big cast of supporting characters, from his owner Kevin and Ace the Bathound (batman's dog) all the way to Streaky the cat and the Dog patrol.

However, since the show is aimed at young kids, so is this dvd, with only 5 twelve minute episodes, it hardly feels worth it, hopefully it'll get some better releases later as this is a great show.

2.0 out of 5 stars Rip-Off, Misleading November 14, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
"Krypto the Superdog" is a great show that hearkens back tot he enjoyable cartoons of the 80's.

The problem with this dvd release is that is a major rip-off with a misleading label.

The dvd states clearly it has "5 TV Episodes" and in the back "Color/110 mins.", which implies 5 actual episodes. That however is a complete LIE. In reality these are actually 5 episode SEGMENTS (each episode had two segments, each about 10-12 minutes). So really each dvd has 2 1/2 episodes, running a total of about 55 mins..

The "5 episodes/110 mins." fact would only be true if we take both Vol.1 and Vol.2 together.

Now the segments are in order, so we get:
Vol.1:
-"Krypto Scripto Part1" (episode 1, segment 1)
-"Krypto Scripto Part2" (episode 1, segment 2)
-"Super Flea" (episode 2, segment 1)
-"A Bug's Strife" (episode 2, segment 2)
-"Meet the Dog Stars" (episode 3, segment 1)

Vol.2:
-"The Streaky Story" (episode 3, segment 2)
-"Diaper Madness" (episode 4, segment 1)
-"Feline Fatal" (episode 4, segment 2)
-"Dog-Gone Kevin" (episode 5, segment 1)
-"The Dark Hound Strikes!" (episode 5, segment 2)

So one buys two separate dvd's just to get five episodes.

Now, the series had 39 episodes, which means that in the (highly unlikely) chance that Warner Bros. continues releasing these, it will take some 16 volumes (at about $6.60 each, coming to over $100, about as much as I paid for the "Real Ghostbusters" complete box set, which had three and a half times as many episodes)!

I doubt Warner Bros. will keep releasing these, which is a shame as it is a very good series. But to do these "trickle" releases is not good. To lie and mislead buyers is intolerable though.

2 Stars, for atleast the series had some sort of release.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hooray for Krypto + Streaky!!!! May 18, 2006
Format:DVD
I have always been a DC Comics fan!! My favorite title as a kid was Adventure Comics because I wanted to grow up to be Supergirl!You might think I wanted to be Supergirl because she was brave or smart or pretty or cool or Super but you would be wrong to think that. I wanted to be Supergirl because Streaky was her Superpet!!!!When I heard that Cartoon Network was making a Krypto cartoon I was excited; When I heard Streaky would be in it I was elated!!!
This show is fun!!Watch it!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Kids love Krypto June 3, 2008
By slim
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
We happened across this program one Sunday on TV. Kids really liked it, but apparently show was no longer in syndication. They enjoy watching the super-hero dog, Krypto. I'd rate it G.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cute Little Series May 28, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Krypto proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Paul Dini's brilliance cannot be contained even by the strict rules slapped upon writing children's programming. Fans of his previous DC comics character works (Batman & Superman the Animated Series, Justice League, etc.) need to realize that Krypto caters to children between the ages of 4 and 8. And while it is certainly a step toward simplicity when compared to his prior works, the entire series really isn't far off from what Hanna Barbara was putting out all though the 1970s and 80s.

Especially noteworthy is the 2 part debut episode which not only reveals Krypto's origins, but sets up the rest of the series very effectively. Expect a cameo from Superman himself (and Lex Luthor in later episodes).

The animation is clean and colorful with its own unique look to it and the voice work is quite impressive. My only compliant about this set is that $12 is a bit steep for how little is actually contained on the DVD. Five 12-minute episodes can be breezed through in a single sitting. While I realize that children have shorter attention spans and probably appreciate the slim episode running times, Warner would have been wise to throw at least ten episodes on this disc so parents feel they got their money's worth out of it.
