"The Pirates of Dark Water" is a wonderful cartoon series from the 1990s. A fantasy world is endangered and dying; only one man can save it. Humanoids and monstrous creatures abound. The character designs have a distinct Arabian or Sinbad feel to them. The protagonists are not a typical do-gooders; for example, they stole their sailing ship in the first episode. And (minor) characters do perish. The animation is typical Hanna-Barbera fare, but the voice acting is distinctive and includes Tim Curry and the woman who voiced the Little Mermaid. The content is 4 or 5-star content and very enjoyable.

After so many years of VHS tapes, illegal downloads, and streaming video, this series was finally released on DVD by Warner Brothers in 2010. It is a burn-on-demand product, so it should remain in-print for a long time to come. However, the audio and video have not been remastered for this DVD. No extras have been added either. Compared to the alternatives, this DVD set is well worth its $29.95 price tag.

Disc 1 of this dvd set is defected. Once the dvd was in, the Piracy warning came up and never went away. I managed to bypass it with a bit of button finagling. It skipped into the middle of an episode. While it plays, the film hiccups every few seconds continuously. It is impossible to watch the episodes on this disc. The other discs play well aside from a sparse few glitches that crop up here and there. POS dvds, Warner Bros. POS.

The show itself is still entertaining from what I've been able to watch. It deserves a better dvd treatment.

Pirates of Dark Water was one of my beloved childhood memories. I jumped at a chance to own the entire series on DVD to see if this show has stood the test of time.
Unfortunately the DVDs are unwatchable. The First Disc is stuck playing an infinite loop of the anti-piracy message and the few episodes that can be watched are jumpy and glitched.
I am very disappointed that this entire set is unwatchable. I do not know how a professional Media company can produce and ship a product this far gone. 10 seconds of quality control could have prevented this.
DO NOT BUY.

This is truely an amazing show by Hannah Barbara from the good ol' days of 1991.

The premise is as follows: on the alien world of Mer, an evil and sentient tar-like substance known as Dark Water is threatening to envelop the entire planet, killing everyone and everything. 17 years prior to the show's start, King Primus of Octopon, the largest and most beautiful kingdom on Mer, sets out with his loyal captains to retrieve the lost Thirteen Treasures of Rule. These jewels are the only thing that can contain the Dark Water in Mer's center, where it originates.

After retrieving several of the Treasures, Primus is captured by the terrible Lord Bloth, a pirate intent on taking the Treasures for himself so HE can control the Dark Water. The rest of Primus' crew evade capture and scatter the Treasures around Mer so Bloth can't get them.

After 17 years of imprisonment aboard Bloth's massive ship, the Maelstrom, Primus escapes and manages to return to Octopon, left in ruins by Bloth and the ravages of the Dark Water. Our protagonist, Ren, a simple lighthouse keeper, spots Primus trying to swim ashore and dashes out to rescue him. Now an old and frail man after almost two decades imprisonment, Primus uses the last of his strength to tell Ren he is his father. He shows Ren a vision of a restored Octopon, and passes onto Prince Ren the Quest before dying and washing out to sea.

As young Prince Ren is to discover, not just Octopon, but all of Mer depends on him recovering the Thirteen Treasures of Rule.

And so begins one of the greatest epics ever put on TV. No doubt borrowing from countless sources, the story, characters,
exotic locals keep the story fresh and entertaining.

I am so happy that this series is out on DVD.
This was (is!) a great adventure-fantasy cartoon that I adored as a child and am happy to be able to own as an adult.
I hope one day this cartoon is revisited for future generations.
The story may have never been completed, but maybe one day people will show this series the attention it truly deserves.

If you love classic adventure and Hanna-Barbera cartoons, you should check out this series.

I want to start this review by stating that this show was one of my all time favorites as a kid. The bright colors and high sea adventures are as great as I remembered. "Drop of Darkness" is my absolute favorite episode...it appealed to all my girlish sensibilities.

Here is where the review turns negative... The barebones nature of the DVD set made me somewhat upset considering the set costs over $20. Also, one of the discs has an error that causes an entire episode to freeze. I was extremely disappointed with this disc defect considering I bought the set New.

The content/show is great for nostalgia purposes, and has potential to capture new fans, but the DVD quality is well below par.

Why does this take so long to ship?
Warner Brothers may have had a batch made up already. Sometimes, discs have to be pressed, or in this case burned, before being shipped from a company to Amazon.

Hanna-Barbera doesn't exist anymore. It is a recognisable brand/holding company (name only) for the HB/Ruby-Spears and certain MGM (Tom & Jerry) animated properties and back catalogue.

HB changed hands at least thrice I know of Taft Broadcasting, Turner (early 1990s) and current owners... Read More
