Dino Boy feels a bit like Jonny Quest in prehistoric times minus the technology. A curious but fun side trip that seems to share a common Space Ghost theme with the monsters in terms of design sensibilities. I can't help but hear Scooby Doo with the pet dino "Bronty". That's interesting too since it's voiced by the same actor, Don Messick, who would breath life into Scooby Doo later in 1969. So I guess it could be fairly argued the characterization of Scooby was taken from Bronty which was created and voiced back in 1966.
Ultimately this is a great ride for those who enjoyed that original ride back in the 60's or who crave that retro approach that was such a corner stone of all cartoons back in the day when the industry offered a more imaginative and wide open interpretation for artists. The picture is beautifully crisp and clear and well presented. For those who have not seen this in many a decade, you will be warmly surprised.
Dino Boy is a forgotten gem and fun for kids who love dinosaurs. The Lost Valley is intriguing. Ugg and Bronty are like Fred and Dino as playmates. The situations they find themselves in are exciting and fun.
Finally there is a nice documentary of Alex Toth, the creator of Hanna Barbera's best characters from the 1960s-Space Ghost and Johnny Quest are his greatest work. Being an artist, I can totally relate to this man's vision. His temperament is captured in these classics and will live forever.
Also included are the "Adventures of Dino Boy" shorts, about a Johnny Quest-like kid and his caveman buddy in a prehistoric valley seemingly ripped out of an Edgar Rice Burroughs novel. The viewer can forget about these clowns; Space Ghost is the real star attraction.
You could not see all the episodes or the original order they were presented in, most of the time you would get the same 8 to 12 episodes shown over and over again without Dino boy in the middle as it originally aired (it was a 30min. Show with space ghost, Dino boy and a second space ghost, wow!) I didn't mind I
would faithfully watch anyway, then one day it was gone and I was sad, very sad I had often wondered throughout the years what it would be like to see it and Dino boy again and all of the episodes in order, well now I can!! And I can honestly tell you this disc set is truly beautiful from the art on the box to everything inside (if you know anything about space ghost or Dino boy you will not be able to put this down) high quality all around, the sound is crisp and clear the color has stood through the test of time the picture is excellent and the best part is you get to see all of the original episodes in Crnologic order, you will mainly watch this because of space ghost a intergalactic peace keeper with his side kicks Jan and jace and their monkey blip,(who almost always steals the show, you will grow to love him) as they take down all the space baddies and monsters in outer space, just wait until you hear space ghost declare in his over the top super hero voice "Jan, jace, invizo power on!" Good stuff!! But don't count out Dino boy! A young boy who is forced to leap from a burning airplane with nothing but his parachute and ends up in a prehistoric land and befriends a powerful caveman named ugh with the help of his dinosaur gronkk they save each other from all sorts of monsters and evil beings that would do them harm, good stuff!! If you are a fan of the Hannah Barbara cartoon shows or just a animation fan/collector you must get this now! I guarantee u will not be sorry, and to Amazon.com thanks for the memories I shall keep it in my movie collection 4 ever!!!!!!
