    I think one of my favourites is Colossus (not yet released) where Apache Chief "En-ek-chock"s multiple times over until he is much bigger than the whole Earth. According to Wiki his tribal powers were originally limited to making him about 50 feet tall, but he learnt to extend it to unlimted size from The Atom.

    The phrase apparently means "Big Man" in the Apache language.

    The episode is notable for the create in question to literally put Earth into a bottle as a toy!

    Not to mention that even though the Wonder Twins have now been ushered into DC print canon, they were originally created for the show--
    In 70's Saturday morning, the rule was "Follow the lead of popular movies/TV", and...just wanna see, how many here are actually OLD enough to remember Donny & Marie's show making jokes about purple socks, and "Cute, Marie, real cute"?

    Yes I remember a cartoon where he said his phrase multiple times. Thank you for confirming its existence!

    Good thing the villain du juor didn't have a cup of coffee on him, eh? ;-)

    Anyway to reply to other posts...I didn't know the remaining "lost" shorts made two seasons. I stand corrected. Also, the Legion of Doom primarily starred in Challenge, but representatives from the group returned in said lost shorts. And Lex and Brainiac would return as solo acts in the Super Powers seasons. As would the Scarecrow in one of the most memorable SF/SP episodes, the one that first presented Batman's origin on TV no less!

    I stopped by while I was out today and grabbed one. And I've watched half of it so far.

    I did forget to mention that itunes has all those shorts
    Available to download. It's not DVD, but it does mean
    that a Superfriends fans can watch the whole series!

    These are some of my favourite and most memorable episodes of the series. I'm glad to have bought them today. I wonder if they plan to release the rest of them as we get closer to the Man of Steel theater and home video release?

    Do anyone have any ideas as to what we should expect for the next HB release? I purchased the Roman Holidays today. Can wait for the next installment in the HB library!

    Interesting thought they report on Warner Archive titles when they are exclusive to the Warner online shop for a small period of time, yet for a target exclusive, which is also for a small period of exclusivity, they look over it. Doesnt make any since to me and is bad for the consumer that reads that website for making buying decisions. And how is it any different I ask??

    I like tvshowsondvd a lot, so this isn't really a criticism,But they seem aligned with Amazon for their paid adsand I'm ok with that. It would be nice though if they didmention releases like this SuperFriends. There is a lot less good news for retro fans theses days, and if you didn't tell us about the target ad, we might have missed the news.

    Thanks Derosa. I really like tvshowsondvd too. It's funny though but I would have missed the Superfriends DVD if I wasn't perusing the ads for a new springtime clothes. Didn't find my dress but I've got my Superfriends (hehe).

    I went to a Target store in Toronto this morning,
    but they didn't have the SuperFriends dvd.
    No staff around knew anything, I guess it's only
    in the USA stores right now.

    I really like them too, and the more ridiculous the story the better... I may be alone, but a lot of the appeal of Super Friends for me is laughing how cheesy it gets. I was introduced to the series on Cartoon Network in the mid 90s and I used to laugh my head off. I have no doubt they'll finish the series on dvd now, but who knows when. I just hope they knock it out in a single set.

    Lex is also in this series that was just released, in an homage episode to Superman: The Movie (basically). Bizarro also appears outside of Challenge of the Superfriends, both in the '80s shorts and Super Powers Team.

    Given that Roman Holidays didn't do that good in the polls, I'm surprised it got released already. I hope we get some more GoBots and Mister T soon as it has been two years since the last releases.

    Roman Hollidays was part of the saturday morning set as such i am not surprised it was released. There are only a few left from saturday morning set, like Tarzan or New Adventurs of Gilligan or Banana Splits.

    I am happy that more sets are coming out, but it has been a very slow process. In two months we will be half way through another year and there are still many releases still to come. I plan to get Roman Hollidays, Yogi Gang down the road, but i have to order them from amazon.com as amazon.ca does not sell them due issues with WB archive and Amazon Canada.

    I am wondering if Clue Club is next on the list as it was popular in the polls. I also be interested to know what is happening with Banana Splits or these our the day or other shows.

    I also like forums like this as i can share my love of cartoons with similar people. I am in my forties and i still love the classic cartoons. I have nearly 50 completed sets now and i usually watch one dvd from my set each weekend. I do take a lot of ribbing from my special lady as she says i am too old for cartoons!! I told her that you never too old for cartoons as all us are still a kid at heart!!

    Them jumping to Roman Holidays wasn't that far of a stretch assuming the ones that finishd ahead of it were also started. The Holdays are no doubt one of the most untouched ones so it would more than likely had a very quick prep time. It was #6 on the second poll. #3 (Hair Bear Bunch) and #4 (Ed Grimley) were released. #2 (Clue Club) is confirmed to have started being worked on. Chances are good then that #1 (New Hanna Barbera Cartoon Series) and #5 (Shirt Tales) are also probably being worked on.
    (Others being #7 Fantastic Max #8 Loopy De Loop #9 Wheres Huddles #10 Johnny Cyhper (another non HB/RS outsider))

    On the first one: #1 (Chan Clan), #3 (Inch High), #4 (Sky Commanders), #7 (Butch Cassidy) are out. #2 (Marine Boy) is an outsider in it's own section of the library that they seem to have implied was being worked on. #5 (Cave Kids) is a strong candidate for release given that the article out recentlly said more Flintstones releases were coming. #6 (Paddington Bear) i'm not sure of my mind is telling me they said clearance issues but i can't guarentee that off the top of my head, and #8 (Police Academy) was started. PA however according to the best selling algorithm on their website is lower than Mr T and Gobots, so i doubt they have plans to rush to finish that one any time soon.
    (Others being #9 Heyy It's the King, #10 Dink the Little DInosaur)

    Overall i'm predicting Clue Club is the most likely next release. Could be wrong though, if any of those funny animals or CC get done or Cave Kids is given a quick rush those could come out first.

    But at the same time don't forget the Tom and Jerry Kids Season 1 sets come out this week to stores from WHV.

    The only SF season i bought was Challenge as it was the one i really liked, but this is great news for SF fans.

    What does this leave missing now for them? I'm assumign the Target volume will end up wide released soon enough, so outside of that, how many more?

    And as a tie-in, this bodes well in hopes the Scooby season sets will get to make a return in the future. WHV is on a roll now with returning season sets for WB shows and DC shows. Here's to hoping HB will get to be on that roll too. We already have one set out now in T&JK, let's keep the ball rolling please.

    As mentioned previously, there are two seasons of shorts that remain unreleased from between 1980-1982.
