Included along with the 42 exciting Space Ghost shorts in this collection are 18 stone-aged escapades starring the underappreciated and oddly-named Dino Boy. According to Wikipedia, Dino Boy's real name is Todd, but his blue-eyed caveman pal, Ugh, knows him only as "Dino Boy." This is likely due to the fact that he is usually seen perched atop his pet dinosaur, Bronty/Bronto. If he were on horseback, he would be called `Horse Boy.Read more ›
This was Hanna-Barbera's first serious super hero show. Space Ghost, Jan and Jace, and monkey pet Blip respond to calls for help from their Ghost Planet, and tackle galactic threats like Metallus, Brak, Lurker, Brago and Creature King.
The last six stories form a serial adventure, in which you'll see guest appearances by Shazzan, Moby Dick, Mightor and Herculoids, which is an obvious cue for subsequent releases of those characters' shows too.
Here's hoping they put out the later series "Space Stars" (made in 1981, with Space Ghost, Herculoids, Teen Force, Astro and Space Star finales).
What many people don't realize is that Space Ghost shared it's timeslot with another program called "Dino Boy in the Lost Valley," which was an entertaining program in its own right; kudos to Warner Brothers for including those segments in this set. A predecessor to Land of the Lost, Dino Boy features a young boy who is marooned in a prehistoric valley populated by dinosaurs and cavemen. Featuring plenty of tyrannasaurs and lushly painted backgrounds, it is a worthy addition to any cartoon fan's collection.
What Space Ghost and Dino Boy had that later saturday morning cartoons didn't was actual ACTION! In the late Sixties, partially in response to Space Ghost, parental groups lobbied to have violence of all kinds be removed from children's programming, resulting in bland, lackadaisical programming for the most part.Read more ›
I pre-ordered this set from Amazon and when I received it the disc's were already full of fingerprints and scratches upon opening the package. Amazon quickly issued a replacement set without hesitation, so thanks to Amazon for getting another set out to me. Unfortunately, the second set arrived and it was covered with deep scratches, more fingerprints and some kind of residue on the disc's. This lead me to believe that it's a quality control problem at Warner, well it seems that's not the case. After receiving two damaged sets, I contacted Warner and I was informed that they don't handle their own DVD replicating process; they just put their name on the final product. I contacted Warner again to complain about the poor condition I received my two sets in and guess what they did, absolutely nothing!
Don't get me wrong, I'm really glad I bought this set but I have seen better quality in other Hanna Barbera release's and expected the same with this one. I am completely satisfied with the level of service from Amazon even though I wasn't happy about the condition of the two sets of this show I received under the Warner name.Read more ›
