SUPERFRIENDS: THE LOST EPISODES Studio: Warner Brothers Year: 1983 Rated: Not Rated Film Length: 172 minutes Aspect Ratio: 1.33:1 Audio: English Mono, Portuguese Mono Subtitles: English, French, Portuguese Release Date: August 11, 2009 The Series ( out of ) 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.
