I think the New Adventures show is great. Some of the episodes (Penguin's School of Crime) are outstanding and Adam and Burt do great voice work. I really hope Warner releases the 68 Adventures series, either in stores or through the archive. Amazon has the Adventures show available for download. Does anyone know if any thing is missing?

I have to watch the rest, but remember the first few eps. being really corny. And yeah, now I remember the '68 series being on Amazon! I guess that might be why we haven't seen certain series pop up on DVD, because everything's going digital? Speaking of which, I assume the 1980-82 Scoobys on Amazon are in syndicated form, and not with their partner shows of the time?

CBS = Constantly Butchering Shows.

For myself, Scrappy was a series killer. I was there when he showed up in 79 and after about three episodes I gave up on the series as a lost cause. Yes, Scrappy was done as a way to re-invent the series. At the time ABC felt that Scooby had gotten stale and wanted to cancel it. They instead decided to give it another chance if the series was revamped. Enter Scrappy. I would love to have the '68 Batman series on DVD. Were they done by Hanna Barbera?

Filmation did the 1968 Animated Batman (Along with Superman, Superboy, Aquaman, and the Justice League (Atom, Flash, The Green Lantern and Hawkman)) About half of the Superman Cartoons, all of the Aquaman and Justice League Cartoons are available on DVD. A "Rights Issue" F.U.B.A.R. Prevents the Superboy and Batman Cartoons from becoming available on DVD. :f

Last I checked sell thru of Disc was still a 8-9 BIllion dollar a year business, hardly chump change.  Digital downloads... much much less. Im sure we will see this series either through the Archive or Regular sometime in the future.


Im not sure why but as a little girl I didnt like Scrappy now in 2013 when I watch the episodes featuring this k9, I dont mind him so much.

Being a female is a matter of birth. Being a woman is a matter of age. But being a lady… Now that's a matter of choice.

The '68 Batman show is available in its entirety on amazon as a (perfectly legitimate) download. I've never heard of there being any rights issues associated with it.

Must have been cleared. I wonder why it hasn't been made available on DVD? :confused: There's still the issues with Superboy to contend with. (I read it has something to do with the estate of Superman's authors. Maybe these will be cleared someday. Then again, there's a certain 1966 superhero Series that probably has to be King of the F.U.B.A.R.s when it comes to DVD. :f

I would have thought that the legal issues with Superboy would have been settled when they did the live action series.

The legal issues with Superboy have been settled. Warner Archive is now offering the live action series through their program. There are no rights issues with the BATMAN series from 1968. It used to be available on VHS but it has not shown up on DVD yet.

It's been about six years since those titles were released, and they seem to be heavily discounted at Amazon and such places, selling for $5-$7. I don't think there is a lot of potential profit for more releases. It will be interesting to see if the rest of the episodes from the Filmation produced stuff ever gets a DVD release.

HB complains about sales of their sets over the years, but WB does little to opening up the selection to wider market. WB archive is main distribution point for releases and yet many of those releases do not make it outside of the United States. Yes, there are ways via amazon.com and/or deep discount to purchase Archive releases, but the vendor's pricing can be very expensive.. I usually wait a few months for the price to dropped and/or if i can package few sets together within an affordable price. So, you tell how is WB archives/HB releases really fair to markets outside of the USA? Well, they are not. Roman Hollidays is on my list, but it will be 6 months or so after it comes out before i purchase the set.

Ditto here. Probably during the Holidays. ;)

Actually, the current price for the New Adventures of Batman at Amazon is about the lowest I've ever seen it. I think the profit potential for the Adventures of Batman is greater than either Acquaman or the vaguely titled DC Super Heroes. Personally, I was confused for a long time about Warner's various offerings of DC cartoons. From most of the packaging, it is never really clear where the cartoon is coming from. This is especially the case with the numerous iterations of Super Friends. Personally, I think that they would have been better served to have put the dates of shows on the boxes so that consumers could tell what they were getting more easily. At any rate, regardless of whether Superboy or more New Adventures of Superman could do well at retail, I'm sure that they would be very successful archive releases. As for The Adventures of Batman, it might even do well at retail. My children really enjoy the New Adventures of Batman and many of the more recent cartoons are too dark and adult oriented.

No surprise but great news. I have to wait 2 weeks but I'll definately pick it up then.

Welcome back everyone.

 

The only new speculation we really have is that a post might imply to expect some more specials coming out later in the year, but that's not really true confirmation.

 

We're still waiting on Roman Holidays and then it's back to our list and breaking down what we know are short or long term fix ups.


Blanket Quote for myself for all my postings from Feb 2014 and on

"i'm not shy to mention that i seem to be a major outlier on this forum. But i'm still highly boggled by some things posted here. But hey i can only be so critical but some things do bother me a bit, but to each their own. Even if it's odd conspiracies, not wanting to use terms correctly or just throwing hasty generalizations."

I really like to see them complete Wait Till Your Father Gets Home. I have S1 and love that show

 

I am also surprised there is no update up on the New Adventures of Gilligan.

They just confirmed that Marine Boy and Johnny Cipher in Dimension Zero are still planned to be released. I don't know how they are going to do Marine Boy. It is 77-78, 1/2 hour episodes. Johnny Cipher was arround 130 episodes but only 6 minutes long.

 

Like most of you,  I love the old Hanna-Barbara cartoons of the 60's and 70's but, I also have a love for the Japanese created cartoons of the 1960's. We watched the Hanna-Barbara toons on Saturday but during the week, after school, the other cartoons. We had a show in the Philadelphia area called, Wee Willie Weber's Cartoon Club. He introduced us to Astro Boy, Kimba the White Lion, Marine Boy, Rocket Robin Hood, Johnny Cipher in Dimension Zero, Ultraman, Speed Racer, etc. Good times, good times....

Note that rights to stream a show are different to releasing it on "home video". I'm not sure of the full legalities, but I think it is something like streaming is closer to broadcasting. Eveidently, most shows of any vintage were created with contracts that covered broadcasting re-use, but only those made in the post VHS-era have clauses covering home video, whioch is why they are so problematic because they have to go to everyone involved to negotiate the rights, royalties, and even a minor character can act as a block (and sometimes their estates)

 

Marine Boy is confimed? Where?

 

I would be very excited if it is! Suprised TVShowsOnDVD haven't run the story if it is the case. As you say it's a large series with 78 half-hour episodes. It seems somewhat large for an MOD release.

 

The previous release of Centurions, which gave us just the five episode starter series but not the vast bulk of the later episodes, does not fill me with optimism.
