4.0 out of 5 stars The Title Says It All! May 28, 2007
Format:DVD
"Super Friends: The Legendary Super Powers Show!" as announced in the opening main title by veteran voice artist Dick Tufeld (Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends, Thundarr the Barbarian) was the next-to-last incarnation of the long-running Super Friends series.

Based on the Super Powers Collection toy line of the time featuring select DC Comics heroes including hero Firestorm (a long-time personal favorite of mine), Super Friends: The Legendary Super Powers Show (1984) is most revered as the Super Friends series that first introduced Firestorm the Nuclear Man in animated form, along with evil Apokolips lord Darkseid. Not to mention Adam West reprising his caped crusader role as the voice of this show's animated Batman.

Though still "Super Friends fun," the art and animation for "Super Powers" was diminished to rather cartoony proportions, as most Hanna-Barbera cartoons of the time (Challenge of the Gobots, Scary Scooby Funnies) tended to be. Dedicated SF fans will overlook it, while those spoiled on today's animation may not be so inclined. Firestorm's transformation scene still looks cool though. Plus the tone of the show is *slightly* more intense (for Super Friends) than the previous versions thanks to the presence of Darkseid. So while the quality of the show is down a bit, it still remains highly watchable.

Comprised of 16 episodes totaling almost 8 half hours, this "Super Powers" collection also may seem limited, especially to SF fans who were hoping that the follow-up series The Super Powers Team: Galactic Guardians episodes would be included on the set. However, unlike the

4.0 out of 5 stars TYPICAL HANNA BARBERA FARE BUT IT IS THE JUSTICE LEAGUE! September 3, 2007
Format:DVD
Long before The Justice League animated series on the Cartoon Network there was the Super Friends on Saturday Morning TV. Premiering in 1973, the Super Friends went through various incarnations over the years until the final season during 1985 - 1986. The show featured a number of DC Comics' superheroes but the mainstays were Batman & Robin, Superman, and Wonder Woman. The show was geared toward Saturday Morning TV viewers and not comic book fans. Thus the stories were more simplistic and the violence was toned down quite a bit. One thing that the Super Friends did was to introduce ethnically diverse heroes to Saturday Morning TV with an African American (Black Vulcan), a Native American (Apache Chief), an Asian (Samurai) and a Hispanic (El Dorado)

This particular series, The Legendary Super Powers, was a rather ingenious media tie-in with Kenner Toys' line of action figures called the Super Powers Collection. This is truly one of the great action figure lines of all time. First, the line featured many characters who would not be seen in action figure form until the DC Direct series. This included Red Tornado, Dr. Fate, Martian Manhunter, and Captain Marvel. In addition, many of the figures were short-packed, creating instant collectibles for figures such as Cyborg, Plastic Man, and Mr. Miracle. It was a great line of toys.

Onto the DVD...The Two Disc set includes the complete, 16 episode series to go along with some nice special features. No one will ever accuse Hanna-Barbera of producing great animation, at least not in the 70's and 80's. Animation was still on the downslide prior to being revived by Disney in the late 80's and early 90's. Hanna-Barbera did what they do very well...

4.0 out of 5 stars Probably one of the best SF series ever May 1, 2007
Format:DVD
Yes if they are only doing the 1984 series, it will be a bit skimpy (still want to know what the bonuses are, and I wonder if any of the "lost" 1980s shorts will make it on this set, as they were seen as filler on some of the original broadcasts). But being "abused" by WB's marketing schemes in this case is worth it to me...well, in general, I am a big Superfriends fan anyway. And by this time, the show was turning towards the elements (including a slightly more serious nature) that would culminate with The Super Powers Team. It took one of Challenge of the SF's main strengths by using more villains from the comics; Lex Luthor and Mxyzptlk would return, joined by appearances from Mirror Master, the revamped Brainiac, and most of all, Darkseid and other New Gods characters! And on the side of justice is one of the most underrated DC heroes, Firestorm the Nuclear Man (by the time of the SPT, Cyborg would join next, and we'd see the Wonder Twins and most of the Multicultural Pals phased out). As a bonus, Batman's voice from then on would be Adam West, which made the character seem less nerdy than the Olan Soule version. Soule would take over the role of Martin Stein, one-half of Firestorm, in this season. Stein and Batman even team up for one episode!

Yes this might be a sparse DVD release, but still worth it for me to have pristine copies of this season. Bring on the Super Powers Team, and some more of the Superfriends series (All-New SF Hour, anyone? World's Greatest SF? The aforementioned "lost" episodes? Heck I'd even buy a set devoted to the Wendy and Marvin episodes)
