Editorial Reviews

From the Hanna-Barbera vaults comes one of the more unique animated pairings in Saturday Morning cartoon lore. Moby Dick is a friendly white whale to teens Tub and Tom, and together with their pet seal Scooby, they battle the dangerous villains of the undersea world like the Iguana Man and the Crab Creature. Travel back to the prehistoric era with Tor. He was just an average cave teen until a stranger presented him with a magical club that turns him into super-powered Mighty Mightor when danger strikes his village. A great white whale and a teenage cave dweller are the headliners of this 2-Disc, 18-Episode Collection. The triangle on your play button is all the symbolism you'll need to know!

5.0 out of 5 stars Moby Dick & The Mighty Mightor: Complete Series... August 19, 2011
First, an historical note.

In 1967, Moby Dick & The Mighty Mightor came on Saturday Mornings in Los Angeles (Channel "4"). It was another entry from the (then) mighty Hanna-Barbera Studios, which, from 1966-1968, absolutely ruled Saturdays on all three major affliates in town:

1. KNXT-TV (Columbia Broadcasting System(CBS) - Channel "2")
2. KNBC-TV (National Broadcasting System(NBC) - Channel "4")
3. KABC-TV (American Broadcasting System(ABC) - Channel "7")

With that out of the way, I'll break this review into two sections:

1. Moby Dick - A super whale who finds, befriends and watches over two children while they search for their father who was lost at sea during an scientific expedition. This half of the show details their adventures. Personally, it was just "ok" If standing on its own, it would garner at best, 3 stars.

2. Mighty Mightor - The story of a young cave dweller (named "Tor") who saves an old Hermit being threatened by a menacing T-Rex type of creature. The Hermit, being grateful, bestows upon Tor a mystical club that possesses great power. To invoke this power, Tor only needs to raise the club above his head and say, "Migh-Tor" and he is instantly transformed into a being of great strength and power.

This is where the fun begins.

As a side "benefit", his pet dinosaur ("Tag" - as in "Guten Tag" - german for "Good Day"), is changed into a Fire-breathing Flying Dragon. What used to crack me up was the narrator saying "transferred" instead of "transformed" when it came to Tag. But, I digress...

What amazed me about the cartoon was the level that Mightor dealt with the bad guys he encountered.

5.0 out of 5 stars I so miss old saturday mornings... November 26, 2011
Verified Purchase
Wonder whatever happened to good classic cartoons? They don't really show them even on Boomerang anymore (much like TV Land was supposed to show only classic TV...my how things change), but there is a solution! DVD! Thanks to DVDs it is now possible to recapture those old classics from Hanna-Barbera, like this one, Moby Dick and the Mighty Mightor! In my epic search and victory in finding my favorate Hanna-Barbera show of all time the Herculoids (which I am also proud to own the DVDs now) I came across this and honestly had forgotten all about Moby Dick, but then again it wasn't really Moby Dick I was after, it was Mightor. As a fan of superheroes, even stone-age ones, I had to get his DVD set, I had forgotten how much I enjoyed the show and there were serveral on here that I had never seen before either which made it all the better to watch and enjoy, the only thing this DVD set was missing would have been some kind of review or commentary which I imagine was saved for bigger names like the Herculoids, Space Ghost, and Birdman. Overall, a great buy! Thanks for reading and have a nice day.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mighty Mightor - Good But Not Great Quality September 21, 2011
Verified Purchase
Mighty Mightor was one of the best cartoons in 1967 and is still very watchable. Such animation is far superior to many of the animated series today. The reason I give this release Four Stars and not Five Stars is because the restored video quality is good and not great as expected. The colour saturation is somewhat muted in many of the episodes and there are significantly numerous scratches and other degraded film artifacts such as dark and bright splotches in many scenes. Nevertheless, this is apparently the best quality currently available. Considering these episodes are 44 years old I suppose one should consider it fortunate to have at least good quality DVD episodes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another H-B Masterpiece December 9, 2011
Verified Purchase
Yet another great classic cartoon transferred to DVD. I thourougly enjoyed these two shows in the 70's (as re-runs of course), and I enjoy them even more now. They are both action packed. (Mightor especially) If you have little ones or a collector of classic toons then this is a must have.

3.0 out of 5 stars Prehistoric He-Man & a stubby white whale December 21, 2013
I bought this for Mightor only. I find the Moby Dick episodes pretty lame, but then Mightor himself isn't all that awesome, either. Interesting to me mainly for the sharp comparisons to the later Filmation He-Man series. An interesting piece of animation history but both shows are pretty much assembly line, by-the-numbers filler that Hanna-Barbera studios cranked out by the TON back in the 60's & 70's. For me, the charm of Mightor, aside from the He-Man similarities, are the character designs by Alex Toth. Mightor basically comes across a lot like Space Ghost in a loin cloth, but given that they're both created by the same artist who was stuck working on a tight timetable with a limited H-B budget, it's really no surprise.

Episodes look pretty good considering their age and the fact that this release is an M.O.D. (Manufactured-on-demand) DVD-r release from Warner Bros.' Archives division. That means no remastering, no restoration and zero extras, like 99% of their MOD stuff. Important for H-B fans & completists, and curious animation fans like myself. Worth it if you snag a used copy thru Amazon for cheap.

When I was a kid, I was playing to be Mightor, one of my favourite animated show and now that I can watch it on tv, I can't believe it : a journey to the past when Hanna Barbera did those marvellous productions !

Great Picture and sound : The entire series remastered !
