I'm a huge cartoon nerd who in particular loves the Saturday morning and syndicated stuff from the 80s and it's unfortunate that I think I'm both the exact target audience for a release like this as well as one of of the fans completely let down by this style of release.

Real quick, the WB presents SMC 1980s 2-disc set is a compilation of single episodes from eleven different 80s cartoons including:

Thundarr the Barbarian
Mr. T
Dragon's Lair
The Flintstone Kids
Galtar and the Golden Lance
The Biskitts
The Completely Mental Misadventures of Ed Grimley
The Monchichis
Chuck Norris: Karate Kommandos
Tex Avery's the Kwicky Koloa Show
Goldie Gold & Action Jack

There's also a short 18 minute special feature called Lords of Light that reminisces on the production of Thundarr the Barbarian with a handful of talking head intervews (including some great insights from writers, as well as the creator/producers of the series Joe Ruby and Ken Spears.)

First off, for the casual fan there's a lot to like about a compilation set like this. If you're only curious about getting a taste of the various shows that aired during Saturday Morning throughout the 80s, then a set like this is great. There's a nice range of mystery solving, action, and comedy with enough recognizable highlights (the Flintstone Kids, Mr. T, and Thundarr) to offset the more obscure series (Goldie Gold & Action Jack, Chuck Norris: Karate Kommandos, and the Monchichis.) Unfortunately, even for the casual fan the set has little to no re-play value, and so it would fall into the realm of the impulse buy or one-time Netflix rental.

For the more hardcore fans the set is a disaster.

It's great to see the 1980s decade of cartoons getting it's own volume to shine, being that we've already seen two 1960s and two 1970s sets of the Saturday Morning collection already out. One can not stress enough that high sales of this 80s volume 1 would encourage WB to release more 80s sets in the future. It's been said the 60s volumes have not sold as well as the 70s sets and that's a shame because some of these cartoons released in volume form are about the only way they'll get to be on DVD being they're not as popular to be sold on their own. So the more 80s volumes made, the better chance we'll get the more niche' cartoons.

Well on to some of the content, "Thundarr" is your classic good verus evil set in a post apocalyptic earth, the intro to the show alone is worth the price of admission. "Galtar" also shares that action vibe set and is similar to Conan in some regards. Both shows clearly deserve a complete series set and they might just get that treatment if this volume sells highly well. Also I am sure fans of "Pirates of Dark Water" would feel encouraged they might also be considered in a 1990's Volume set or a complete series being that has never been released on DVD yet.

Being Warner Bros has a chat each year where fans can ask questions on shows they'll like to see released I think they do consider shows people ask for like Plastic man which finally got a release last year and I formally asked about " The Biskitts " and they actually included an episode in this volume which I am really glad they heard me on that one. Think the " Smurfs " a bit of action, comedy and adventure and down right cute puppies and a bumbling king and side kick providing laughs galore.

I grew up in the 80's, as did my husband, so naturally we grew up on Saturday morning cartoons, along with the USA cartoon express. Most of these you'll remember right away & a few took a couple of seconds, it's a great collection. My only complaint is that it's not a bigger set, I would have liked to have seen MORE. It's a must for any 80's child to have in their collection & is great to share with your children.

I bought this DVD compilation with low expectations, but was surprised with the number of cartoons they had on there from what I remember in the 1980's. I mostly bought it because of the MR. T cartoon show. I vaguely rememebered watching it. Some of the cartoons I felt didn't really belong on there, mostly The Flintstone Kids. I would have gone with something else like Pound Puppies, CBS Story Break, Saturday Supercade, Smurfs, Turbo Teen, Shirt Tales, Richie, Rich, Rubik: The Amazing Cube, The Get Along Gang, Gummie Bears, or The Wuzzles.

Some of the cartoons that were on this collection & I either forgot about or didn't even realize was a cartoon series. I remember a video game in the early 90's called Dragon's Lair. I didn't know it was a cartoon. I also thought that the Ed Grimley Show was a great addition "I must say".

The only thing that would have added an extra bit of "umph!" would have been to include toy commercials & PSA's (like "One to Grow On") from that era in special features.
