The problem with this dvd release is that is a major rip-off with a misleading label.
The dvd states clearly it has "5 TV Episodes" and in the back "Color/110 mins.", which implies 5 actual episodes. That however is a complete LIE. In reality these are actually 5 episode SEGMENTS (each episode had two segments, each about 10-12 minutes). So really each dvd has 2 1/2 episodes, running a total of about 55 mins..
The "5 episodes/110 mins." fact would only be true if we take both Vol.1 and Vol.2 together.
Now the segments are in order, so we get:
-"Krypto Scripto Part1" (episode 1, segment 1)
-"Krypto Scripto Part2" (episode 1, segment 2)
-"Super Flea" (episode 2, segment 1)
-"A Bug's Strife" (episode 2, segment 2)
-"Meet the Dog Stars" (episode 3, segment 1)
-"The Streaky Story" (episode 3, segment 2)
-"Diaper Madness" (episode 4, segment 1)
-"Feline Fatal" (episode 4, segment 2)
-"Dog-Gone Kevin" (episode 5, segment 1)
-"The Dark Hound Strikes!" (episode 5, segment 2)
So one buys two separate dvd's just to get five episodes.
Now, the series had 39 episodes, which means that in the (highly unlikely) chance that Warner Bros. continues releasing these, it will take some 16 volumes (at about $6.60 each, coming to over $100, about as much as I paid for the "Real Ghostbusters" complete box set, which had three and a half times as many episodes)!
I doubt Warner Bros. will keep releasing these, which is a shame as it is a very good series. But to do these "trickle" releases is not good. To lie and mislead buyers is intolerable though.
2 Stars, for atleast the series had some sort of release.
However, since the show is aimed at young kids, so is this dvd, with only 5 twelve minute episodes, it hardly feels worth it, hopefully it'll get some better releases later as this is a great show.
This show is fun!!Watch it!!!
Especially noteworthy is the 2 part debut episode which not only reveals Krypto's origins, but sets up the rest of the series very effectively. Expect a cameo from Superman himself (and Lex Luthor in later episodes).
The animation is clean and colorful with its own unique look to it and the voice work is quite impressive. My only compliant about this set is that $12 is a bit steep for how little is actually contained on the DVD. Five 12-minute episodes can be breezed through in a single sitting. While I realize that children have shorter attention spans and probably appreciate the slim episode running times, Warner would have been wise to throw at least ten episodes on this disc so parents feel they got their money's worth out of it.
