Pac-Man! The game that gobbled up a nation's quarters while its hero gobbled up those annoying Ghost Monsters spawned sequels, spin-off, toys, games and more. Taking note of Pac-Man's avid fan base, famed carton studio Hanna-Barbera hit upon the idea of adapting the game for Saturday morning animation - becoming the first video game to make the jump to TV. Kids were immediately enraptured and a score of other arcade favorites soon followed Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man and Baby Pac-Man from the gaming console to the cathode ray tube. In this 2-Disc, 13-Episode collection Pac-Man does battle with Inky, Blinky, Pinky, Clyde and Sue, the Ghost Monster minions of the dreaded Mezmaron, who lusts after Pac-land's precious power spheres. Aided by his plucky and charming wife and son, Pac-Man saves the Pac-President, confronts the vampiric Pacula, discovers the Abominable Pac-Man and more. Pac-Venture awaits - no quarters required!

All three characters - Pac-Man, Pepper (Ms. Pac-Man), and Pac-Baby - and their pets Chomp-Chomp and Sour Puss pull together as a family as they fend off Pac-Land's five Ghost Monsters: Clyde, Pinky, Inky, Blinky and Sue. (Pinky, Inky and Blinky appeared in both the Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man video games; Clyde appeared in Pac-Man only, replaced by Sue in Ms. Pac-Man.) The Ghost Monsters - each with their own unique mob-like personality - work for Mezmaron, whose mission is to seize the power pellets, Pac-Land's power source. Most of the show's plots center on these battles.

With Pac-Man: The Complete First Season in your collection, you can relive the days when Pac-Man fever was sweeping the nation. In addition, the cartoon is good clean fun the whole family can enjoy.
It seems strange then, tragic even, that I never knew this show existed as a kid! Where was I? All I can figure is that He-Man must have been on at the same time. (Seems I had a thing for charactors with -Man in their names..) It's really a shame, because if I had seen this as a child I might find it more viewable as an adult. Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong about the show... but then there's nothing really right about it either. You get the idea that Hanna Barbera figured the Pac name alone would draw kids in and they didn't need to focus on story telling. The show has very little humor, no witty one liners or zingy comebacks, nothing quotable. The charactors are lifeless and bland. There are some flashes of genius, like the Pac family going to the drive in to watch video games (kinda' a Galaga meets Star Wars) but they are few and far between.
Not even my kids got into this one, and they both like Pac-Man and 80's cartoons. Still, it gets four stars for simply being a Pac-Man cartoon. It's not bad for what it is. It's just not great, either.
The show is corny, there's barely any plot, and after a while each episode seems the same as the last, but it's Pac Man and his family & it's classic at it's best, and still beats any of today's cartoons by hundred.
