For starters the set includes all 26 animated episodes of the series (each episode runs about 8 minutes long) with writer commentary on a couple of them. Disc 1 contains the first 14 while disc 2 contains the remaining 12 and a host of interesting special features including interviews with many of the show's actors and producers. We even hear from producer Lou Scheimer in several of the interviews.
The show (for those who have not yet had a chance to enjoy it) is surprisingly well done and clearly provided the source material for more recent super hero spoofs such as Sky High and The Incredibles. Rather than compete directly with the campy superhero animation out at the time (Hanna Barbara's Superfriends for example), Hero High knew not to take itself too seriously instead choosing to poke fun at both itself and comic action in general.
The episodes are fairly short romps in a tradition of good clean fun rather than epic good versus evil and to be completely honest, some of the humor contained within is on par with the type of material one would expect in sitcoms from the era.
Additionally the second disc contains an episode of the live action skit that came packaged in the Kid Super Power Hour at the time. This, too, can be viewed with writer and actor commentary, which really adds to the value of reliving the experience.
The package itself is in a league of its own (as all BCI/ Ink & Paint sets tend to be) with colorful sleeve art and a book that not only lists all of the episodes but also provides color photographs, a synopsis of each one and a trivia pertaining to the episode! Talk about going above and beyond to deliver quality. The picture quality is quite crisp and clean (showing no indication of the era) as are the audio tracks. Once again Ink & Paint have provided a masterpiece compilation worthy of shelf space on any collector's entertainment center.

It was a fun rolic to the past, but I can tell these actors were only doing this as a first gig hoping to move onto other acting opportunities.
this is not a cheap transfer but a well made video copy. the colors are crisp. the only complaint I have is the audio seems very jumpy but I think that was recorded that way. It's very imperceptible but it's there. well worth 10 bucks or less.
