Editorial Reviews

From KIDS FIRST!: If you remember the excitement of waking up early on Saturday morning to watch cartoons, then get ready for a new treat as you enjoy favorites from your childhood with the next generation. This collection of cartoons from the 1980s will keep you laughing and rooting for the good guys as you walk down memory lane. Join the adventures of Thundarr and Mr. T,. and laugh with The Flintstone kids and The Monchhichis. The DVD set also includes The Kwicky Koala Show, Chuck Norris: Karate Kommandos, The Completely Mental Misadventures of Ed Grimley, Galtar and the Golden Lance and The Biskitts. As some adult reviewers pointed out - the trip down memory lane, viewing cartoon favorites from the past was “awesome,” and they even got to view some shows from the 80s that they had never heard of before. KIDS FIRST! Child Juror Comments: This is a great movie because I get to watch some things that my mom and dad watched when they were as old as I am. I think my friends would like it because they like The Flintstones, and I think they would think it’s cool to watch The Flintstone Kids. The cinematography was good, but not as good as things are now. Some of the episodes looked like drawings on paper. It was pretty good for the 80s, though. The characters were pretty kind to each other even though there were bad guys in the episodes. The bad guys never won. My favorite part was in The Flintstone Kids when Freddy made the bet that if their team won the game, the bullies would have to eat their gloves. Then they had to eat their gloves.\

I'm a huge cartoon nerd who in particular loves the Saturday morning and syndicated stuff from the 80s and it's unfortunate that I think I'm both the exact target audience for a release like this as well as one of of the fans completely let down by this style of release.

Real quick, the WB presents SMC 1980s 2-disc set is a compilation of single episodes from eleven different 80s cartoons including:

Thundarr the Barbarian
Mr. T
Dragon's Lair
The Flintstone Kids
Galtar and the Golden Lance
The Biskitts
The Completely Mental Misadventures of Ed Grimley
The Monchichis
Chuck Norris: Karate Kommandos
Tex Avery's the Kwicky Koloa Show
Goldie Gold & Action Jack

There's also a short 18 minute special feature called Lords of Light that reminisces on the production of Thundarr the Barbarian with a handful of talking head intervews (including some great insights from writers, as well as the creator/producers of the series Joe Ruby and Ken Spears.)

First off, for the casual fan there's a lot to like about a compilation set like this. If you're only curious about getting a taste of the various shows that aired during Saturday Morning throughout the 80s, then a set like this is great. There's a nice range of mystery solving, action, and comedy with enough recognizable highlights (the Flintstone Kids, Mr. T, and Thundarr) to offset the more obscure series (Goldie Gold & Action Jack, Chuck Norris: Karate Kommandos, and the Monchichis.) Unfortunately, even for the casual fan the set has little to no re-play value, and so it would fall into the realm of the impulse buy or one-time Netflix rental.

For the more hardcore fans the set is a disaster.

It's great to see the 1980s decade of cartoons getting it's own volume to shine, being that we've already seen two 1960s and two 1970s sets of the Saturday Morning collection already out. One can not stress enough that high sales of this 80s volume 1 would encourage WB to release more 80s sets in the future. It's been said the 60s volumes have not sold as well as the 70s sets and that's a shame because some of these cartoons released in volume form are about the only way they'll get to be on DVD being they're not as popular to be sold on their own. So the more 80s volumes made, the better chance we'll get the more niche' cartoons.

Well on to some of the content, "Thundarr" is your classic good verus evil set in a post apocalyptic earth, the intro to the show alone is worth the price of admission. "Galtar" also shares that action vibe set and is similar to Conan in some regards. Both shows clearly deserve a complete series set and they might just get that treatment if this volume sells highly well. Also I am sure fans of "Pirates of Dark Water" would feel encouraged they might also be considered in a 1990's Volume set or a complete series being that has never been released on DVD yet.

Being Warner Bros has a chat each year where fans can ask questions on shows they'll like to see released I think they do consider shows people ask for like Plastic man which finally got a release last year and I formally asked about " The Biskitts " and they actually included an episode in this volume which I am really glad they heard me on that one. Think the " Smurfs " a bit of action, comedy and adventure and down right cute puppies and a bumbling king and side kick providing laughs galore.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ticks most of my boxes February 25, 2010
Format:DVD
I was quite surprised to see the average ratings (so far) given in the reviews. As a quintessential child of the 80s, the cartoons featured in the 1st volume are some of my most wanted on dvd... The Biskitts, Monchicchis, Chuck Norris and Mr T! These were all great shows that I remember fondly. All that plus some great looking artwork makes this one of my most anticipated releases this year. It's just a shame we'll probably only get one episode of each. My requests for the 2nd volume... PawPaws, Pac Man and Rubik The Amazing Cube!

4.0 out of 5 stars A great grab bag of 80's Saturday morning cartoons March 21, 2013
Format:DVD
I bought this DVD compilation with low expectations, but was surprised with the number of cartoons they had on there from what I remember in the 1980's. I mostly bought it because of the MR. T cartoon show. I vaguely rememebered watching it. Some of the cartoons I felt didn't really belong on there, mostly The Flintstone Kids. I would have gone with something else like Pound Puppies, CBS Story Break, Saturday Supercade, Smurfs, Turbo Teen, Shirt Tales, Richie, Rich, Rubik: The Amazing Cube, The Get Along Gang, Gummie Bears, or The Wuzzles.

Some of the cartoons that were on this collection & I either forgot about or didn't even realize was a cartoon series. I remember a video game in the early 90's called Dragon's Lair. I didn't know it was a cartoon. I also thought that the Ed Grimley Show was a great addition "I must say".

The only thing that would have added an extra bit of "umph!" would have been to include toy commercials & PSA's (like "One to Grow On") from that era in special features.
