I've been waiting now for Filmation/Warner Brothers to release the "Shazam!" DVD for a seeming eternity; it was my favorite Saturday morning program when I was young, and - as a result - Captain Marvel was my favorite superhero. I drew pictures of him at school and in my spare time, and owned the Mego action figure. (Remember those?) I preferred Jackson Bostwick (first season) as Marvel over the later John Davey, and recall being shocked at the sudden appearance, mid-season, of an entirely different-looking Marvel. Jackson Bostwick, in full costume, once came to my city for a Cerebral Palsy Telethon, and I was too shy to go see him or even call the station to speak with him.

Viewed now from a more cynical perspective, the show itself is the epitome of 70s cheese, and it doesn't hold up well in the new millenium. Still, it's good viewing for nostalgia's sake. Teenager Billy Batson and Mentor perpetually travel the "highways and by-ways" of America in a Winnebago, like Jack Kerouac with wanderlust, yet never seem to leave California. "The Elders" (six animated Greek gods whose initials provide Shazam with his name) deliver fortune cookie riddles to Billy, which then become clear later in the episode - after Billy has encountered a troubled youth of some kind. "In times of dire need," Billy turns into comic book hero Captain Marvel by uttering the word "Shazam" and being struck by a bolt of lightning... but the Captain Marvel of the show isn't your typical superhero: he never fist fights, he stops wrong-doers by lifting the rear wheels of their car off the ground or jamming their car between two trees, he brings in the cops when things get too intense, and he provides a brief moral lecture directly to us at each episode's closing. This Cap doesn't throw punches, he "develops understanding.

...This show was part of my Saturday mornings, as a kid. Good, clean, positive fun. Nostalgic adults and kids can still enjoy this.

I haven't seen this show since I was 15 in 1976. So I'm glad to see it's out on dvd. The picture & sound quality are as good now as ever. But this version of Captain Marvel is only partially faithful to the original comic books. There's no origin story except the brief explanation by the narrator at the beginning of each episode. We see the six ''elders''- the Greek gods from which Shazam's name is derived in animated form. But where is Shazam himself? Also the role of Billy Batson is made to appear to be about 20 years old. In the original Whiz Comic books Billy was a young paperboy around 10-11 years old. That doesn't stop this from being an enjoyable show. Micheal Gray handles the role of Billy Batson very well as does Les Tremayne as Mentor.Not much has been heard of from Micheal Gray or Les Tremayne since. Does anyone know what are they doing today? Jackson Bostwick looks great as Captain Marvel.He's clearly the best Captain Marvel onscreen thus far.This is a fine show that teaches us morals and values without being overbearing. John Davey took over the role for reasons unknown after Bostwick made the first 17 episodes. Davey's ok in this role except his voice shakes a bit when he says Shazam. On some of the episodes the cartoon images of the elders looks a bit foggy. Was this the effect the filmmakers hoped to achieve? Or is this the result of aging after 39 years? Either way I can easily forgive this because the technology we have today didn't exist back in 1974. Nearly all of the episodes focus on teenagers & the troubles they get into. This is a show everyone can still enjoy today.I do wonder though why is this a 3 disc set? It could easily have been reduced to 2 discs because we get no bonus features at all.Read more ›

So very 70's! In one episode there are bank robbers, hidden money, a shark, catholic school girls, a dune buggy, and a nun in a wheelchair! And Danny Bonaduce even shows up in one epidode!

Good fun and a must have for collectors of live action superheroes.

Acting isn't great and special effects are sometimes very cheesy but the show does have some fun and is entertaining.

1974 lives again in this extraordinary three disc compilation of episodes of the Saturday morning children's show that aired on CBS-TV from 1974-1976. I can close my eyes and see Jackson Bostwick, John Davey fly over the city, in stunning red and gold. Michael Gray remains 18 years old and Les Treymayne as Mentor lives forever in our mind's imagination. The production values are impeccable. This cult and fan favorite has been around for the last 39 years. The lovers of Captain Marvel and the magic word "Shazam" have hoped that this show would be reproduced on DVD for the longest while. Thanks to Amazon.com, we now have the chance to watch our dreams once again. Thank you Amazon for making our tomorrows come alive once more.

First off this is not like a regular store bought DVD but is rather recorded on DVD–R media that is “Made on Demand” (MOD). I was always prejudiced against this format until I realized that it’s the only way to get some of the older shows. Plus if you are old enough to have enjoyed Shazam! when it first aired then you were not bred on HDTV. Either way I’ve largely had good luck with these Warner Archive releases. This is how the episodes break down;

Disc One: Season One –(1974)
01. The Joy Riders
02. The Brothers
03. Thou Shalt Not Kill
04. The Lure of the Lost – (Part 1 of 2)
05. The Road Back – (Part 2 of 2)
06. The Athlete
07. The Treasure
08. The Boy Who Said “No”
09. The Doom Buggy

* Special Feature: Play all with morals

Disc Two: Seasons One & Two (1974–75)
10. The Brain
11. Little Boy Lost
12. The Delinquent
13. The Braggart
14. The Past Is Not Forever – (Part 1 of 2)
15. The Gang's All Here – (Part 2 of 2)
16. On Winning – (Season 02 Begins)
17. Debbie
18. Fool's Gold

* Special Feature: Play all with morals

Disc Three: Seasons Two & Three (1975–76)
19. Double Trouble
20. Goodbye, Packy
21. Speak No Evil
22. The Odd Couple – (Isis)
23. The Contest – (Season 03 Begins)
24. Bitter Herbs
25. Ripcord
26. Finders Keepers – (Isis)
27. The Sound of a Different Drummer
28. Out of Focus – (Isis)

* Special Feature: Play all with morals
