Birdman and the Galaxy Trio...
, May 24, 2007
This review is from: Birdman & The Galaxy Trio Show: The Complete Series (DVD)
For those that don't remember, Hanna-Barbera ruled Saturday Mornings from
7:00 am (Atom Ant/Secret Squirrel/The Impossibles/Frankenstein Jr.) until
1:30 pm (Johnny Quest) in the 1966/1967 time range.
The most interesting point I wish to make is this:
All three major networks had Hanna-Barbera cartoons. Stranger still, I
don't remember ANY of them clashing with each other during the day!
In Los Angeles, one could flip from chs. 2 (KNXT - now KCBS/Columbia)to
4 (KNBC/National) to 7 (KABC/American) and catch about all of their
cartoons. (I seem to remember Birdman airing on Ch. 4 at the time)
Birdman - It was never said, but he worked with 'our' US Government in
battles with the bad guys. As Communism was big in the 60's, the over-
tones were crystal clear.
The Galaxy Trio - Interplanetary Police who did battle with all kinds
This show wasn't my favorite Hanna-Barbera Animated show (that honor is
reserved for The Herculoids (which aired on CBS) and Mighty Mightor
(which also aired on NBC), but I enjoyed it enough back then to want
to buy it now ($20/US)! It still garners a Five-Star rating!
