This is not the orignal Black Stallion movie, but the series called the Adventures of the Black Stallion that aired back on the Family Channel back in the early 90's. The show was unfortunatly cancelled when the Family Channel was purchased by another TV company. It stars Mickey Rooney reprising his role from the movie and Richard Cox playing Alec Ramsay. It's 90 minutes long and in it, The Black is entered in the French race Prix de Chantilly, and Alec's friend Nicole (Marianne Filali) returns home to see her sick mother, while Alec and Henry deal with crooked gamblers and bad businessmen who try to fix the race. If you loved the Adventures of the Black Stallion, this DVD is for you!

I mistakenly purchased this DVD thinking it was the 1979 version by Frances Ford Coppola. I was very disappointed in this series of shorts of The Black Stallion produced for the Family Channel. This may good for children but for someone who was looking for the mystical and beautiful film that moved me in my childhood, it was an extremely poor imitation. What really irks me is the fact that nowhere does the product information explain that it is not the film of the same name done so well in 1979. I shoulda looked closer and I will next time. Just because its name is The Black Stallion based on the book by Walter Farley, starring Mickey Rooney does not make it the classic from 1979 produced by Frances Ford Coppola.

I originally bought this DVD thinking that this was the movie starting with Alec Ramsay being saved by the Black. As I watched it I realized that it was a TV show and a poorly done one as well. The script is poorly written at best and it's almost a shame that Mickey Rooney accepted a contract. There are a total of about 4 episodes plus a bonus that seemed to be a bonus only because I couldn't determine where it fell in the timeline. Having read all of Walter Farley's books, I couldn't even tell which books the show was based off of. The Black was played by a Friesan Stallion, not even an Arabian, and was referred to as a Thoroughbred. Having been involved with horses almost all of my life, this was probably the most disturbing. The cinemetography was poor and I probably will not ever watch it again.

I was a large fan of both this TV series and the movies. I think that most people if they like horses will enjoy this series. I always felt like I was with Alec on his adventures, it was not only Alec who could ride the Black, but I could ride him too. I do think they titled dvd wrong though. It is no wonder many people got confused and thought it was the 1979 movie. It should have simple been titled The adventures of the black stallion season 2 episodes 1 -5 , or they should have put Richard Ian Cox's name along side Mickey Rooney.

I loved this show when it was on the Family Channel and definitely enjoy the DVD. Those who complain it is not the original "Black Stallion", all you have to do is look at the date of 1990 and KNOW it couldn't possibly be the original!!!! JEEZ, give me a break!!!

I was so excited to see some of the episodes from the tv show, The Black Stallion (done by the family channel in the '90s) are now on DVD. Growing up, the Black Stallion was my favorite tv show! When I saw this DVD I couldn't resist and I'm so glad I bought it! The theme song for the show gave me goose bumps and brought back so many childhood memories. I hope they put ALL the episodes on DVD- I will buy them all!!

Seeing some of these reviews that people have left, apparently they can not read the title, it's description/synopsys nor research what they are wanting BEFORE purchasing! *eyeroll*

This series spin-off of "The Black Stallion" movie is reffered to as "The New Adventures of The Black Stallion". This series, as stated from the reviewer posted bellow me, was shown on the cable station (in the USA) The Family Channel. (I didn't know that this station got bought out, thank you for this information. *sob* ) This spin-off series was wonderful watching for the entire family and I recomend it! It continues the story of Alec and the Black into their new racing lives together with their trainer Henry. Along the way they encounter new enemies, threats, families and friends. One friend being Nicole and her endless search for her father and mother. Toward the end of one of the seasons, this friendship between Alec and Nicole turns into something more. Sadly the series just dissapeared before that part of the story could develop. Each episode had good plots, storyline growth, 'keep your attention' scenes, beautiful local filming, along with morals to each story with a good Christian base/family ethics. Some very well known actors/tress star in this story as well as the horse that stars as the Black whom was trained by the same famous trainer that trained the Black that starred in both movies and countless other well-known horse stars! I was very sadden to see this series go in the past. Now that this first season is being released in a DVD box set, I am absolutely ecstatic an can't wait untill it gets to my doorstep to relive this exciting adventure once again! Thank you so much for allowing me to enjoy this wonderful show again and I look forward to a future release of seasons 2 and 3!
