This review is from: Birdman and the Galaxy Trio: The Complete Series (DVD)I surely dont see how someone can say this is terible.I remember these as a child and they always made me happy on saturday morning.I was always glued to the set and didnt move.I guess the packaging is subpar and you need to put some effort into getting the disks out.No big deal i say as watching these again will be well worth it.Sometimes you find packaging like this but oh well,im just greatful to be able to own them and leave it at that.

Even though I loved these as a kid (I think I was 8 or 9 yrs old), I can see how someone could call these terrible. Some are so bad that they're good. Corny dialogue (I can't stop laughing at it though), many of the same actors voicing different characters, mouth sometime closed while the character is actually speaking (Birdman), and the same plot almost every time-Villain plans to steal something or take over the world and then Birdman and his oversized falcon (probably using steroids) try to stop them by firing rays at them, while trying to block or dodge the villains rays as well.
I know all cartoons are usually like that, but I guess here, since they're only 6 minutes long, it's fine. Also, very relaxing to watch, I find.
How about that villain with the flying pinkish horse? He thinks he's killed Birdman but doesn't check him- he's just stunned(can't stop laughing... must get closer to the sun)... or the Ringmaster easily disposing of Birdman but then when Avenger (steroid falcon) jumps on him, the guy starts crying like a baby and then his serum wears off...priceless stuff.
Too many goodies. I still haven't watched them all because I don't want to finish them too fast. I must savour each cornball episode.
BIRDDDDDDDDDDD MANNNNNNNN! BIRDDD BOYYY! (kills me every time- I love it.)

People complain about the silliest thing sometimes! I agree, I'm glad to have it! Now bring out The Herculoids! :-(

Gee, I wish I could be a brilliant hipster like you, Poker Face, and show the world how clever I am by mocking a children's cartoon!
I guess when you're so busy snickering, you don't notice such minor details as Avenger's being an eagle, and not a falcon. Or maybe you're just too cool to know the difference?
