Editorial Reviews

As the entire world went "space action" crazy at the end of the Seventies, Hanna-Barbera reconvened its Sci-Fi superstars Space Ghost and the Herculoids for another round of adventures. Joining the sixties sci-fi faves in their interstellar battle against evil were newcomers Teen Force and Astro and the Space Mutts (yes, that Astro!). But there's more to the story to know before you blastoff on adventures as big as the cosmos itself! Get ready to enjoy Space Stars complete with the recently-uncovered, never-before-seen "Space Science" segments restored in all their educational glory. Race! - to learn Space Magic tricks with Blip! Streak to learn Space Facts from Space Ace! Rock out to the synth wonder of the Space Mix! Solve Space Mysteries deep in space with Teen Force and join the Herculoids to crack the Space Code. They're back – for the first time ever!

5.0 out of 5 stars From One of the "Space Stars" Animators............. December 12, 2013
hey there! darrell 'big d' mcneil here. i was one of the layout artists/animators on "space stars' back in 1980 for hanna-barbera. just finished reading the wonderful comments from you guys who remembered our little efforts to continue the hanna-barbera super-adventure legacy and, while it didn't run as long as some of us would've liked, on the other hand we did a singular crop of episodes that, in my own way, i'm kinda glad no one else got to screw up. i've done figuratively thousands of animated shows over the last 38 years, but 'ss' holds a special place in my heart: not only was it my first 'h-b' screen credit, but it was the original 'space ghost' series that inspired me into wanting to becoma an animator in the first place. aside from getting to put my hands on such classic characters was getting to work with such fellow animator and voice legends/friends as jack kirby, mike sekowsky, jesse santos, my mentor alex toth (who did the original designs), space ghost hisself, gary owens, mike road, don messick, 'ginny' gregg and so many others. and yep, the gang at warners archive did a remarkable job in putting elements together that hadn't been seen in 30 years, (I never saw them....and i'm one of the guys that DID them!). and unfortunately, the eleven new additional 'herculoids' episodes we did have probably now been lost to the ages, but whatthehey......there's so much other 'new' stuff in these shows the way wb put 'em together anyway! so, speaking for the past and surviving 'hanna-barberians' out there.....a big THANK YOU for remembering our efforts from way back. it's much appreciated. and....oh yeah.... as lead character designer/comic legend/old friend jack 'the king' kirby himself might've said: "DON'T ASK.....JUST BUY IT!"

5.0 out of 5 stars Space Stars: The Complete Series October 16, 2013
By JM
"Space Stars" was one of many series in its respective era created to capitalize on the success of "Star Wars" (for the most part 1978-1982) and was originally intended to air in the 1980-1981 NBC Saturday Morning season. In a sense, it was an anthology that revived two (well, three in a sense) 1960s Hanna-Barbera properties in the form of "Space Ghost" and "The Herculoids". It also added new segments, such as "Teen Force" (three teenaged heroes that echoed memories of "The Galaxy Trio", another H-B 60s cartoon) and "Astro and the Space Mutts" (pairing the Jetsons' pet dog in a group led by Space Ace as a light-hearted counter-balance to the other action/dramatic themes of the block of shows). A television strike in mid-1980 derailed this program from airing that fall. Despite that setback, the series eventually did air the following season on NBC (1981-1982). Because the series ended production before NBC aired a single episode, all the viewers had to watch were the 11 hour-long episodes already produced (six segments aired in each hour-long show; two "Space Ghost", a single "Herculoids", "Teen Force" and "Astro" segment as well as a team-up segment titled "Space Stars Finale").

I enjoyed the series as a kid; It aired after "Kids Super Power Hour With Shazam" and before "Spider-Man And His Amazing Friends". I never envisioned that the series would be deemed classic enough to be released on DVD, but thanks to Warner Archive Collection, it's now available for all to own and enjoy.

In my opinion, the show has aged well. There are obvious things that show the series' age but certainly nothing to keep one from viewing it with their children or grandchildren.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Space ghost cartoons ever October 13, 2013
I have been waiting for this to come to DVD for ever. I bought the original space Ghost collection thinking it would be the space ghost for this series. This was the most action packed and coolest space ghost series ever. I do not remember the other 3 cartoons, but the 21 space ghost episodes are a mush buy. I have preordered my copy. I love this cartoon. Ah the memories.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stars from Space December 4, 2013
By A. Yee
Verified Purchase
My local NBC station in San Francisco carried this series on an irregular basis...pre-empting the series for most of its one season run for either local programming or NBC's West Coast sports coverage. The series followed the Super Friends formula with short 10 minute adventures per segment, a team-up episode, and a melodramatic narrator describing the action. It was great to hear the great original voices of Gary Owens, Don Messick, Mike Road, and Virginia Gregg reprising their 60s roles. The unseen "Space Stars" science, secret codes, and magic segments and the music segments with the laser light animation effects were an excellent bonus addition. Great Hanna-Barbera nostalgia!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Warner Archive release January 4, 2014
By S. Hill
Verified Purchase
Although I didn't watch this series when it was on NBC, I watched it's competition, Blackstar at the time on CBS. Goldie Gold and Action Jack was on at the same time, but moved to an earlier time during midseason. Both shows are great. Back to the review:

I thought of this show as having poor animation and bad writing for years. Actually, it's not so bad. Keep in mind that this was the early 80's where Hanna Barbera was on auto pilot making shows without consideration of quality as many would complain about today. Yes, you can see some of the dirt, yellowing, and specks in these episodes. However I don't mind since I grew up from this era of animation.

32 years later, you are now able to own the complete 11 eps of this series. I think Hanna-Barbera wanted to recapture this series as an 80's version of The All New Superfriends Hour. Why, you ask? It was not only the cross overs of the shows groups showing up in other episodes, but in the educational content that was supposed to be included in the series. There were: Space Magic, Space Fact, Space Mystery, Space chase music sequence, and Space Code. Some of the Space Magic segments were similar to the '77 season of the Superfriends. There's even some underscores heard here familiar to you from The Superfriends, (for Astro and The Space Mutts) Scooby and Scrappy Doo, Richie Rich, and The Fonz and The Happy Days Gang(?) I don't know why NBC rejected the educational segments. Consider them as your DVD extras from this Warner Archive release. Another bonus here is you'll hear Casey Kasem's "We Now Return To Our Program" on the show's sub main titles when he did the bumpers for NBC Saturday Mornings for that season (He did them from 1979-87).
