Starring Thundercats voice actors Earl Hammond, Larry Kenney, Peter Newman and Bob McFadden, this action packed animated series launched into battle for one soaring, spectacular season.

This show is slick. From the rockin' intro to the cheesy yet fun-loving dialogue, you can't go wrong. Yeah it's a bit old school... but I'll play hooky from the new stuff to watch this. As an adult, do I feel guilty for buying this, watching it all, and then letting the intro run for about 30 minutes while listening to it over and over? No, and neither should you. Do yourself a favor and pick this up, or do your kids a favor and show them how things used to be in the cartoon world.
Have they desided once more not to release the rest of the series like others great 80s shows like gi joe, wheeled warriors etc. This makes me mad!!! Please please give out the second half of this series.
Setting aside the package glamour, the dvds have eight episodes per disc. Their menus are accompanied by the SilverHawks theme song and look appealing enough, but are not animated or anything fancy. Although there's no mention of remastering work, picture and sound are pristine, with no apparent age artifacts apart from an occasioned darkness to some episodes (in particular, sections of "The Bounty Hunter"); on a few of the middle episodes (eg., "Darkbird", "Gold Shield"), a minor horizontal tracking flicker is visible along the topmost edge during the closing credit scroll. The show was not originally recorded in stereo, so it's all unseparated center-channel audio, with tracks in English, French, and Spanish, plus proper subtitles (not Closed Captioning) in English and Spanish.

Anyway, back to the subject at hand. A lot of my favorite episodes are on this collection ("Journey to Limbo," "One on One," "Sky-Shadow," etc.) The minor complaint that I have though is that I owned "The Origin Story" (actually, five intertwined episodes) on VHS and, therefore, I know that roughly five minutes of the first two episodes is missing from the DVD release. I don't know if it was also missing from television broadcast and the DVDs are using abbreviated episodes or what the deal was but, clearly, a portion of "Journey to Limbo" (including a battle between my favorite villain, Mo-Lec-U-Lar, and hero, The Copper Kidd) was missing. Also, clearly, the title card is missing from "Sky-Shadow." These are minor inconveniences, however, and easily overlooked by the casual observer.
On to my major complaint as promised: while this is a nice opening collection with the first 32 of 65 episodes, I would kind of like to see Volume 2 eventually actually get released. If poor sales are somehow dissuading the Warners from continuing sales, then we are being teased by the first of two releases!

|Silverhawks and Bravestar||
Both shows did not have an ending. You only had 65 episodes each, and after their run......they both just left it to your imagination. Not even Galaxy Rangers had an ending.

|Will any of these show go on Blu-ray?||
Well I would have said no when you originally posted this, but since last year, TMNT the original movies, and alot of anime series have been re-released on blu ray so I would imagine eventually they will. With Warner Home Video announcing that they are going to stop producing some movies on dvd... Read More
