Classic cartoon DVD's on the horizon?


Recommended Posts

Well, we were blessed with DVD releases of The Transformers, Star Blazers, Battle of the Planets, GI-Joe, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Bugs Bunny, Tom & Jerry, and others.


And it seems that we are going to see Thundercats soon, and possibly He-Man as well. Very excited for those, especially Thundercats.


I for one, will not rest though, until I see an official release of The Tick, and X-Men. THE definitive cartoons on saturday mornings of the 90's, IMO.

I haven't heard any word on these two jems of a cartoon being released in the near future. Anyone have any info on these, or other classic cartoons that aren't out yet, or announced, that you'd like to see come to DVD?

Inspector Gadget would have been better if it hadn't pummelled its one single joke into total oblivion :P.


They need to release a huge set of good old Saturday's Supercade. None of those shows was terribly memorable, but hey, it'd fit with the site's theme, right? ;)


I consider myself fortunate that Batman and Gargoyles, two of my faves, are on DVD already. Now if only there was Darkwing Duck...

Inspector Gadget wasn't Saturday morning, it was an everyday afterschool cartoon.


ok....so I went a bit ADD on the subject.... hehe


but I'd still like to see that one on DVD.

ok then....official renaming of the thread....


"Saturday morning and after school with Ellios Pizza and Cool Ranch Doritos cartoons." :tu

orgnial ninja turtles


Already being released Bobbio.


You can buy Season 1 (which is only a few episodes) here:




It also includes 4 never released episodes from Season 10.


Season two of the classic TMNT is also due on 4.26 for 10 bucks:






Hell yeah. Possibly my favorite cartoon of all time. You can add Darkwing Duck to the list. :tu




Looks like we'll be forced to wait for more of these sets. Rhino recently lost the license to GI-Joe making a release from them impossible. Supposedly Season 2 Part 2 will be thier last release of the show. :(


The rights have apparently reverted to Paramount along with the rights to the Tranformers (which thankfully had a full series release on DVD).

I might be showing my age by asking this, but how about the Super Mario Bros. Super Show and the Legend of Zelda cartoons? Those were the highlight of my day when I was a kid. Zelda on Fridays... thumb.gif Excuuuuuse me, Princess!


You can watch some episodes of those on Yahooligans! although I warn you, you may be amazed at how shockingly awful they are. wink.gif


Also, how about Captain N: The Game Master... now those were some freakish interpretations of Nintendo characters (Simon Belmont, Mother Brain, King Hippo and Eggplant Wizard, etc.), but I didn't think much about it when I was a kid.

I'll show more age. How about the original dungeons and dragons cartoon. I used to love that on saturday mornings. In the non saturday morning cartoons I would also love to see Ducktales. Great cartoon and I always liked Uncle Scrooge in the comics. How about some Richy Rich too.
