Originally titled "The Young Sentinels" [changing its name to "Space Sentinels" midseason to emphasize their space background], the 1977-78 NBC Saturday morning series "Space Sentinels" featured the culturally diverse immortal heroes Hercules, Nordic strongman ("Blackstar's" George DiCenzo); Astrea, beautiful African American shapeshifter; and Mercury, swift Asian American speedster; The trio, who had been taken from Earth centuries ago then endowed and trained in their special powers by sentient supercomputer Sentinel One, protected the Earth and the galaxy from an assortment of aliens and time-travelers.

The following season in the fall of 1978, Hercules returned to the superhero business on a different network and with a different team. "The Freedom Force," one of seven segments from CBS's ninety-minute "Tarzan and the Super 7" show featured The Valley of Time, home of the Freedom Force: Isis, goddess of the elements ("Flash Gordon's" Diane Pershing); Hercules, the world's mightiest man (now voiced by Bob Denison); Merlin, master of magic; Sinbad, hero of the seven seas; and Super Samurai, giant of justice; all champions of freedom who battled fantasy-driven mythological foes.

Join them now on adventures through time and fantasy with "Space Sentinels & The Freedom Force - The Complete Series!" This 2-disc collection features all 13 episodes of "Space Sentinels," and all 5 episodes of "The Freedom Force," plus the following Special Features:

* Interview with creators Lou Scheimer, Buzz Dixon, Darrel McNeil, Michael Reaves, Robert Kline and David Wise.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Filmation series brought to DVD August 26, 2006
Space Sentinels was created by Filmation and appeared on network television as a Saturday morning cartoon in the late 1970's, comprised of 13 episodes. Three main characters, Hercules, Astrea and Mercury go on various adventures on Earth and sometimes in space. On the spaceship resides a sentient computer acting as an advisor known as Sentinel One and a little robot that borders on a traditional Filmation mascot, Maintenance Operator or simply MO. The original title was called Young Sentinels and the characters sometimes introduce themselves as Young Sentinels in the dialogue. The voice acting is slightly more diverse-there are three main actors doing most of the voices, but in this particular series, Filmation added others without crediting them specifically, such as the standard Lou and Erika Scheimer and then some other actors who were used irregularly such as Linda Gary, Diane Pershing and even Ted Cassidy ("The Time Traveler"). Other items that made this show unique for its time (1977) was the multi-ethnic cast (Mercury was of Asian ethnicity), and having a African/American woman as the leader. This is a very brief run down of each Space Sentinels episode.

MORPHEUS: THE SINISTER SENTINEL
Another sentinel with an evil alignment and who has the power of Astrea, Hercules and Mercury combined, comes to Earth for revenge.

SPACE GIANTS
The sentinels have to deal with giant tough-to-beat robots who are initially after some gold as fuel.

THE TIME TRAVELER
A human from an advanced time period has returned to stop the construction of a moon base by destroying the supply rockets (unmanned) shortly after launch.

THE SORCERESS
A large section of the north pole has vanished, and the sentinels are dispatched to investigate.

3.0 out of 5 stars All I need is a bowl of Frankenberry... December 5, 2006
Ahh...the seventies. I remember really liking this one as a kid. If you've never seen it: Think "Superfriends" in space. The animation is classic 70's Filmmation. In other words, not really very good. But the stories are reasonably well-done, although this is strictly kids' stuff (the robot Moe is particularly grating to my adult mentality).

The bottom line is, Space Sentinels is a nice nostalgic trip if you were between the ages of 5 and 12 in 1977. For most everyone else, it's probably not worth owning.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nostalgi-attics should be pleased! August 6, 2006
In all honesty, don't remember Space Sentinels at all, but I loved Freedom Force as a kid. I purchased the video on ebay a few years ago, and of course these things are never as good as you remember them. But it's still a great novelty item, especially for those like myself that loved the live-action Isis program. Freedom Force featured the only animated incarnation of Isis that I am aware of. I'm sure the shows will look great on DVD. All in all, a fun purchase for nostalgia fans, cartoon fans, Isis fans, or for good wholesome entertainment for the kids.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old School Saturday Morning Fun!! October 6, 2012
By Dan M
Verified Purchase
Bought this mainly for the Freedom Force espisodes. Have to confess I don't remember there being 5 of them. Bummer. Anyway, after watching some of the sentinels episodes I do vaguely remember them...still good though. I was always a sucker for just about anything filmation put out...not sure why, but their stuff always appealed to me and still does to this day.

I bought several late 70s early 80s saturday morning cartoons, (at 40yrs old), and been having a freakin field day doing 'Old School Saturday Mornings' here lately. My wife just rolls her eyes as she walks thru to get her coffee but I don't care...I'm having one hell of a time reliving my childhood!!

Over all, I HIGHLY recommend this to any 'Old School' fans out there that love to relive the wonder, fun and great shows we grew up with. The audio/video were/are great and well worth picking this up!!!!!

Kids today SURE AS HELL have no idea what a great Saturday morning is.....wake up at the butt crack of dawn, stumble to the tube and flick it on, shield your eyes cause it's so bright and you just woke up, grab a blanket and curl up on the couch and watch the favs, (while trying NOT to fall back asleep or while eating your cereal :) )

Space Sentinels/Freedom Force
Plastic Man
SuperFriends
Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends
Incredible Hulk
Fang Face
Thundarr the Barbarian
ect, etc

Then come 12p when they were over, get dressed and go out and play...THOSE WERE THE DAYS!!!
