Editorial Reviews

When two adventurous, twin teenagers, Chuck and Nancy, recombine the halves of a mysterious ring, they are instantly transported to ancient Egypt...as masters of an all-powerful genie named Shazzan.

Now, with the help of the mighty Shazzan, the twins seek the wizard who lives "behind the beyond," the only person able to help them return home. But even as the teenagers pursue their quest, every evil sorcerer in the desert kingdom desires the twins' magic ring and will stop at nothing to gain the power it grants over Shazzan.

Format: DVD
I never watched "Shazzan" growing up, and that is saying something from a cartoon junky like me. I would watch pretty much anything animated. I watched all of the other Hanna Barbara shows; "The Herculoids," "Space Ghost," "Birdman," " Frankenstein Jr.," ... but not "Shazzan". I refused to watch it because I was a huge Captain Marvel fan, and the whole Shazam / Shazzan thing offended my sensibilities. (I was a true geek even as a kid, apparently).

Older and wiser now, I took the plunge and dove into this long-shunned Alex Toth production, and found an excellent, goofy, and surprisingly edgy late `60s cartoon.

The `60s and `70s wasn't exactly the greatest time for American cartoons. Budgets were tight, techniques were limited, and simplistic stories were recycled over and over again. "Shazzan" is no different, and repeats a basic magic item / unfulfilled quest scenario for all 36 episodes. Everything you need to know about the story is summed up in the preamble that runs before every episode:

"Inside a cave off the coast of Maine, Chuck and Nancy find a mysterious chest containing the halves of a strange ring. When joined the ring forms the word Shazzan and with this magical command they are transported back to the fabled land of the Arabian Nights. Here they meet their genie, Shazzan. Shazzan presents them Kaboobie a magical flying camel and gives Chuck a magic belt and rope. Shazzan will serve them whenever they call, but he cannot return them home until they deliver the ring to it's rightful owner. And thus begins their incredible journey."

Who is that rightful owner? The story never says. Just a macguffin to keep the plots churning. The saving grace for many of these `60s/'70s shows is design, humor, and imagination.

The Shazzan series along with Space Ghost and Dino Boy, Moby Dick and the Mighty Mightor, and Jonny Quest are for me the classics of Hanna- Barbera cartoons. They bring back the fun memories of childhood watching cartoons with friends and neighborhood kids. Each of us had our favorite characters, we knew their names, their talents, the story line as to how the characters started out on their journey and that they always were on the side of right. Even the music for these cartoons stirs up memories of what was going to come, excitement, adventure, using super skills and setting things back on the right road. Many times wrong choices were made by some of the characters, however there was always someone to help. It didn't end there because lessons were learned and a consequence always follows. I think that is what is missing in the Saturday morning cartoons today. I've seen some of the cartoon that children watch today and to me they are very scary and have no substance. The classic cartoons of Hanna-Barbera have a timeless quality.

Shazzan is a great Hanna-Barbera cartoon. Unlike many, but not all, of Hanna-Barbera cartoons, each episode of Shazzan was new and fresh - there was a new villain each episode. That helped keep this series fresh, and the kiddies (and adults) interested. Series like "The Perils of Pauline Pitstop," for example, had the same villain each week, to wit, the Hooded Claw. And although a couple of villains had recurring roles, it was basically a new episode each week with Shazzan, Chuch, Nancy and Kabubie (sp?).

The animation, as other reviewers have noted, was typical high quality from Hanna-Barbera. Hanna-Barbera was prolific in the field of of animation - I'm glad Shazzan was among their cartoon repertoire. Hope you enjoy it!

Hanna Barbara cartoons were the best cartoons ever made. I was looking for years hoping to see them again. Artists made them so life like. The cartoons of the present are all angles and strange looking. They are so vulgar and sexual innuendos now I would never let my child watch them. That's why America is like it is. Favorites were shazzan,herculoids etc. can't wait. Jim

I've wrote on all these old cartoons I've collected and it's great to have them, sure they didn't really have a plot like modern stories with an ending and real character growth but they were sure a lot of fun weren't they? I mean, who wouldn't have fun with a Genie you can summon to get you out of any nasty jams you find yourself in. And he's always so jolly when defeating the bad guys too.

If you're like me and like the old school cartoons like this, well it's certainly worth having in your collection.
Thanks for reading and have a nice day.

Shazzan was one of my all time favorite cartoons as a child, and I have been waiting patiently for the series to be put out on DVD. As with all of Hanna Barbera cartoons, the animation quality and characters are excellent. I'm slowly building up my Hanna Barbera collection, and I'm very glad to be able to add this one to it. If you are a fan of Hanna Barbera, then this is a series that you absolutely need to have in your collection.
