    The Series
    ([​IMG][​IMG] out of [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] )
    The Superfriends was Hanna-Barbera Studios' cartoon version of the Justice League of

    America. It ran on ABC-TV on Saturday mornings from 1973 through 1983. After its

    cancellation in 1983, ABC brought back the Superfriends in 1984 and it lasted for

    another 2 seasons before its final cancellation in 1986. The cancellation by ABC came

    as a surprise to Hanna-Barbera since the series was so popular in foreign markets.

    As a result, the 8 new half hour episodes produced for the 1983-1984 season never

    aired on ABC, although these "lost" episodes did air at the time in Australia and other

    overseas markets. Although the package art for this set announces "24 episodes on 2

    discs", there are actually 8 half hour episodes consisting of 3 different stories in each
    episode.

    I haven't watched these shows in years so I'm wondering if all of the Super Friends (& the other similarly named shows) eps are now on DVD or is there still something missing ?

    forgot the middle one:

    actually it's three series that haven't been released: the '73 series, World's Greatest Super Friends from '79 which was 8 half hours and the batch of 42 shorts that ran from 80-81 that make up 14 twenty one minute episodes.
