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!

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Lot of Fun! August 13, 2013
By Theo
Verified Purchase
The Hanna Barberra cartoons of this vintage were extremely simply done by today's standards. Hanna Barberra were pioneers in what was called "limited animation", which basically meant making a show for less money by putting in fewer moving parts. I can't help but think of a joke left by another reviewer: that their motto as a company was always "DON'T NOBODY MOVE"!!!

I also can't help but think of a line spoken by Zorak in the 1990's adult cartoon "Space Ghost Coast to Coast". To wit: "Each time I move my arm it costs the Cartoon Network forty-two bucks"!

But provided you take these shows as what they are, they can still be very entertaining, particularly for those of us who grew up with them. True, many (perhaps most) will be attracted primarily by nostalgia or camp value. And all of these shows most certainly have plenty of both. But... once again, provided you take them as what they are, they still work quite well as straightforward adventures too.

A whole bunch of Hanna Barberra's adventure cartoons of this era have recently been released on Amazon as "on demand" DVDs. I personally have found that now that I'm an adult, with each of these shows a little goes a long way. I wouldn't want to watch any one of them for more than a single episode as a stretch. However, I have found that it is fun to have a bunch of different ones on hand, and switch regularly between them. An episode of Mighty Mightor here, and episode of Birdman there, add a sprinkling of Space Ghost...

And Saturday Morning has returned!

Oh, and grown up fans like me who also enjoy the Adult Swim lineup may be interested to note that the "Marduk" used in the Stimutacs episode of Sealab 2021 also makes his first appearance in this show!
