Granted the power and wings of an eagle by high priests, Birdman defends the rights of mankind across the universe accompanied by his constant companion, an eagle named Avenger. The two roam the galaxy in their spaceship, Condor 1, and are often aided by the Galaxy Trio: Vapor Man, who can dematerialize into a gaseous mist; Gravity Girl, who defies gravity; and Meteor Man, a stupendously strong hulk.]]>

All 40 Birdman cartoons, and 20 Galaxy Trio cartoons presented as complete shows. For years we've laughed at the way "Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law" poked fun at this show. Now we can see the original Super Hero action that inspired it all.
Semi-regularly, throughout the series, you'll see winged Super-hero Birdman gain powers from the sun's energy, and take on F.E.A.R., a criminal organization which sometimes does its own dirty work, and sometimes employs super villains like Nitron, Dr Freezoid and Murko the Marauder.
Unique to the time (1967), they introduced a new character "Birdboy" in the later Birdman episodes, and developed him well, as he assisted Birdman in return conflicts with Birdman's old foes like Dr Millenium and Vulturo.
The Galaxy Trio stories are a fantastic outer space sci-fi Super-hero concept. Meteor Man (an elastic enlargeable hero), Vapor Man (who can turn into various gasses, as well as fire them from his hands), and Gravity Girl (who can reduce or increase gravity) fly through space in their ship Condor 1, defeating many foes. In particular, the music used in "Space Slaves" and "Peril of the Prison Planet" will make me keen to play them again and again.
LET'S HOPE THEY REPEAT THIS GREAT IDEA THEY'VE DONE, BY RELEASING THE 1972 "SEALAB 2020" SERIES which inspired the more recent satire "Sealab 2021".
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!
Thankfully i didnt and i bought this nice collection and priced well also. Its not a bother with the packaging to me, i never had a problem getting the discs out. Being for when this cartoons were made the quality is pretty decent. It's not going to be spectacular these cartoons were done back in the late 60s. Even still they hold up well to the things available today. Cop this classic cartoon series and it will give you a good idea of what Hanna Barbera brought to the table in terms of cartoon presentation and just all around good times for TV viewers for any and all ages.
