5.0 out of 5 stars Classic nostalgia 6 Aug 2009
By robby17_e - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
There aren't too many cartoons I'd commit to buying a whole season of, but Plastic Man is the exception! If you were a child of the 70s or 80s then you'll hopefully remember this. Nostalgia at it's best! There's Plastic Man with his wit, Hula-Hula with his distinct voice, Penny, the no-nonsense Chief and a whole host of villains. Can't wait to relive my youth - I've been waiting for this cartoon for ages!

4.0 out of 5 stars Why So Bitter, People? 20 Oct 2009
By Hanna-Barberian - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Dang! Why are some of these reviews so damned bitter? We are talking about a cartoon, right? A cartoon that entertained millions of viewers every week on ABC? We're not talking about someone that just bombed an abortion clinic are we?

First, to correct some of the information, this series was produced by Ruby-Spears Enterprises, not Hanna-Barbera. If the back of the box states Hanna-Barbera, it's simply because the Ruby-Spears library of programming was absorbed into TimeWarner and for legalities, it's under the Hanna-Barbera umbrella.

I remember watching this cartoon, and while I never thought it was up to the superior standards of an HB product, it did have its moments and is worth purchasing if for no other reason, than to relive your childhood memories. People just love to trash Hanna-Barbera, and Ruby-Spears but I dare any of you to compare their product with anything that Filmation or DIC put out.

My only complaint about this set, is that it isolates the "Plasticman" segments and does not include the other cartoons that were a part of "The Plasticman Comedy Adventure Hour": "Rickety Rockey," "Mightyman and Yukk" and "Fangface." I would have loved to see the entire block included. As it stands now, it probably won't happen. Oh well, that's why God invented Boomerang.

3.0 out of 5 stars A "not so" complete collection 31 May 2012
By S. Hill - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
The first time I've heard this series was coming to DVD was back in 2009. Let's say it was a good thing I've waited for the price to drop. I don't like the episodes being on PAL format (meaning the pitch was high, and the quality of the picture varied). That's why I gave this review three stars, because of the quality.

I give the series five stars. I enjoyed Plastic Man as a kid through reruns (The Plastic Man Comedy/Adventure Show live action version via syndication) and later, Cartoon Network. All of the first season eps (excluding the preview episode from the '79 ABC Satam preview special) are present. Three second season eps (with "The Plastic Man/Baby Plas Super Comedy Show" titles, minus the supporting segments) are present. It's great to add these to my Hanna-Barbera collection (Yes, this series was produced by Ruby-Spears, NOT Hanna-Barbera).

Either way, enjoy the DVD's.

4.0 out of 5 stars silly putty fellow 13 Dec 2010
By H. Bala - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A long time ago the voice over guy used to say this to open the episodes: "From out of the pages of DC Comics comes the world's newest and greatest super-hero: Plastic Man! He can spring. He can stretch. He can fly. He can bounce. He can change his shape. And... he can even dance..."

Because of that sense of silly so inherent in Plastic Man, not many people realize just how friggin' powerful the guy is. He's just about invulnerable and his ridiculously malleable rubbery form can shape shift into anything. That is serious, serious mojo. Imagine if petty crook "Eel" O'Brien hadn't decided to switch sides and become a crimefighter? The Elongated Man and Mr. Fantastic have got nothing, compared to Plastic Man's tool box. Really, other than the most powerful of supers and supernaturals out there, who can take Plas down?

Of course, creator Jack Cole set the tone from jump, establishing Plastic Man as a humorous character, and this perfectly transitioned him into Saturday morning cartoons. I used to love watching him on Saturday mornings so long ago. His world was topsy-turvied some to make him even more accessible to kids. Plastic Man, in his cartoon, is a fully deputized government agent, receiving his assignments from the smoking hot Chief. He flies around in a plane that resembles his costume. Plas also has his two friends to help him/get underfoot in his various missions. Southern blonde bombshell Penny has a thing for Plas (although, early on, Plas seems oblivious to this). Penny is there probably mostly to offset certain assumptions. I mean, our guy strolls around in a red leotard, know what I mean? But Plas and Penny eventually do get married and have a kid, Baby Plas. Meanwhile, his sad sack Polynesian sidekick, Hula-Hula, sounds and acts and even kinda looks likes Lou Costello. Hula-Hula was one of the minorities the show had to choose from the network's list. Else, we maybe would've seen Plas's long-time comic book pal, Woozy Winks.

THE PLASTIC MAN COMEDY ADVENTURE SHOW, man, this show was so much fun when I was a kid. I did sort of think it'd be asking too much for the high muck-a-mucks to release a DVD set which also collects the segments featuring Baby Plas, the Plastic Family, Mighty Man & Yukk (a particular favorite!), Fangface, and Rickety Rocket. Anyway, part of the fun used to be trying to figure out which item on the screen is actually Plas in disguise (you always looked for that tell-tale red color; it's the only thing that kept him from being the perfect chameleon). Plas's rogues gallery is pretty wild, too. The Weed. Half-Ape. The Clam. Disco Mummy. That heinous genie of the lamp, Badladdin. They all fall in perfect for the cartoon's trademark broad humor. Plastic Man and slapstick go together like Saturday mornings and cartoons. But, one of these days, someone will write a dark, dangerous Plastic Man story and eyes will be opened. If Plastic Man were a villain, he'd be one scary mother. Oh, if only Alan Moore were still writing comics.

PLASTIC MAN - THE COMPLETE COLLECTION has the entire 35 episodes on 4 discs and with the following bonus material: "PLAS-tastic: A Brief History of Plastic Man" is a retrospective exploring the backstory of Plastic Man from his comic book origins to his move from Quality Comics to DC and his various incarnations on television (00:14:07); and "Puddle Trouble," the unaired pilot episode commissioned in 2006 for a new Plastic Man animated series that never materialized (00:10:06). The animation for this pilot is sorta like that in DEXTER'S LAB.

4.0 out of 5 stars Typical of its era only to a point. Title character and "abilities" supercedes animated formulas of the time. 1 Dec 2009
By BENJ1969 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I've waited forever for this to hit DVD. A h. school grad of 79, my first 2 years were loaded w/ Partying Friday nites, followed by coffee drenched hungover Saturday mornings watching cartoons till I reawoke. No Saturday morning was complete w/o "Looney Tunes/Bugs Bunny" and "Plasticman." You couldn't have 2 more contrasting cartoons, their humor and approach are completely different, but got gut busting laughs from me just the same. For me, it was a show canceled long before it could pick up steam, and a following. But, this DVD is not complete w/o the Adventures of Baby Plas. As much as I've waited for this to hit DVD, I won't buy until those segments are included. To exclude them is a travesty. While Hanna Barbara comparisons aren't totally inaccurate, the spin on this cartoon's super hero routine is more a tongue in cheek wink at the serious super hero cartoons that preceded it, HB's last quality output.
