Wowee! The original adventures of the occasionally invisible cosmic superhero known as Space Ghost are finally available on DVD. Unfortunately, it appears that Warner may have left the package/disc design and episode distribution up to the treacherous members of the Council of Doom. Both of the identical-looking DVDs in this set are double-sided fingerprint collectors. To make matters worse, they overlap one another on a cheesy digipack holder in a skinny cardboard case. Side A of the first disc holds only four episodes (each episode consisting of three six-minute cartoons), while a whopping eight episodes are crammed onto Side B. (That probably explains why my first copy had a defective B-side.) Disc 2 has eight more episodes loaded onto Side A, and a fascinating 78-minute documentary on the life of temperamental comic book artist and Space Ghost creator, Alex Toth, on the flipside. Clearly, this should have been a three or four disc set. But, on a more positive note, the artwork on the cardboard is stellar--with a groovy image of an inviso-powered Space Ghost behind the DVDs, and paintings of Dino Boy, Bronty and Ugh on the outside of the flimsy folder. And, of course, the cartoons burned onto these inferior flipper discs are classics--incredibly imaginative and filled with cleverly designed heroes and villains.

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.

This is the way to do it. All 20 episodes give you all the Space Ghost and all the Dino Boy stories from the original show in the one package. If you enjoyed Gary Owens' voice of Blue Falcon, in last year's Scooby Doo/Dynomutt Hour release on DVD, you'll think he's just right as the voice of Space Ghost too.

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).

1966 is widely regarded as the year that Saturday mornings became a ritual and an institution for cocoa puff-fueled kids, and Space Ghost was a big reason for that. The brainchild of comic book maven Alex Toth, SG spawned a host of imitators (Mightor, Young Samson, Birdman, Galaxy Trio, Herculoids, etc.) and for good reason; it was the number one-ranked saturday morning cartoon during the 1966-1967 season. It's not hard to understand why: Great character designs, colorfully bizarre villains, an outer space theme, cool music, the heroic voice of Gary Owens -- in a saturday morning landscape littered with lighter fare like Underdog, Porky Pig, Atom Ant, Casper the Friendly Ghost, the Flintstones and the Beatles cartoon -- kids ate it up. It was a more serious action-adventure show that catered to youths that couldn't get enough of the live-action escapades of Adam West and Burt Ward on the wildly popular Batman TV series.

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.

I purchased "Space Ghost & Dino Boy" strictly for nostalgia and to revisit this great animated show from my youth. This is another Hanna Barbera series that will leave fans disappointed with the varying level of quality from Warner Studios. Everything about this release confirms it was a rush job by Warner. The packaging is absolutely cheap and the quality of the disc's is terrible. This DVD set consist's of a cheap cardboard outer package and two double sided disc's that sit on top of one another, making them hard to take out. Rest assured because of this poor method of packaging the disc's will get scratched at some point if they're not already.

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.
