5.0 out of 5 stars A trip back to Saturday Mornings, but the 1970's were not as good as the 1960's 29 Jan. 2009
By Paul J. Mular - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I give this five stars, as I believe this is the best way to see some of these 1970's shows. Most of these have not yet been released on DVD, and to be honest: one episode is enought in some cases.
Those that have been previously released on DVD are worth the entire sets.
1962's THE JETSONS feels out of place here, but it was still in network re-runs on Saturday Mornings. However I wish another 1970's show would have bene included. As this is "volume 1" I am sure the missing shows will see their way to DVD.

These were all produced by Hanna-Barbera.

Disc #1
THE JETSONS - The Space Car (also on season 1 DVD set)
THE BATMAN TARZAN ADVENTURE HOUR
HONG KONG PHOONEY (also on complete series DVD set)
GOOBER AND THE GHOST CHASERS
SPEED BUGGY
WHEELIE AND THE CHOPPER BUNCH

Disc #2
YOGI'S GANG
AMAZING CHAN AND THE CHAN CLAN
ROMAN HOLIDAYS
JOSIE AND THE PUSSYCATS (also on season 1 DVD set)
THE NEW SCOOBY DOO MOVIES (also on a Best-Of DVD set)
FUNKY PHANTOM

Bonus Documentaries on THE FUNKY PHANTOM, JOSIE AND THE PUSSYCATS and THE CHAN CLAN.

3.0 out of 5 stars 'A' for effort but a mixed bag in execution 7 Jun. 2009
By Veese - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
As a kid, I devoured all the Saturday Morning TV in the '70s I could take. Now as an adult, I'm amazed by the fact that a 70's Cartoon collection like this even exists so let's start off with the positive.

This is a great sample of pop culture history. Remember, no home video market in the '70's so the best chance to see the new comedy or adventure animated fare were only on Saturdays. It was an weekly event for kids and a boon for animation houses like Hanna-Barbera and Filmation to name a few. I was very pleased to see some long forgotten favorites such as Filmation's Tarzan and HB's Wheelie and the Chopper Bunch (an early precursor to Pixar's 'Cars'). Speed Buggy is another fun show represented I can't believe isn't on its own series DVD set yet. Of course other classics are represented here as well like The JETSONS and SCOOBY-DOO although the episodes here have already been released on other series DVD sets.

Which leads to where I think this set falls short. Too many episodes here that are already on other Hanna-Barbera series DVD sets. There is already a Scooby-Doo Movies set featuring every episode guest-staring the Harlem Globetrotters. Why not feature an episode from that series not currently on that set? There are plenty of them still missing to select from. And by the way, the opening for the Scooby-Doo Movies has been edited. The scene of the robot cowboy gunfire or other "violent" acts have been removed. I really hate the PC-ification of animation history. Questioning other episode selection choices, why run a Josie & the Pussycats episode already on their DVD set when a better choice would have been Josie & the Pussycats in Outer Space, which isn't out there yet?

And boy the mix of series selected here really don't do the Hanna-Barbera legacy any favors. When you can watch all the shows here in a row you really come to realize how sloppy and lazy the studio became as the years went by. Most of the series here became cookie-cutter clones of the Scooby-Doo model. Even admitted to by some of the creators featured in the Docs on this set. Teen-age kids and their talking pet (or car, or whatever) solving mysteries. When you've seen one, you've seen them all and the animation gets worse and worse as time goes by. Shows like The Funky Phantom and Goober & the Ghost Chasers are dreadful in every way. These are the bottom of the HB barrel in character design, story and animation and it's no wonder why these shows don't have their own dvd sets. As an animation history buff, it's almost disheartening to see right before your eyes how fast HB declines from its hey-day of Yogi Bear, The Flintstones, The Jetsons even the earliest Scooby-Doo shows into some of the most forgettable '70s cartoon series ever.

And the worst show on this set? Hands, down, The Roman Holidays. A cheap (and I mean cheaply produced!) attempt to clone the Flintstones model. Awful in every conceivable way.

Buyers should also know some of the quality of various shows on this disk are not as great as one would come to expect. A fact that is properly called out on the disks before you even get to the main menu. Obviously some of the original footage from the animation vaults was in rough shape. Tarzan and The Funky Phantom are prime examples. Which is disappointing because of all of the shows here deserving of its own DVD collection, it's Tarzan. For Filmation, one of its finest examples from its library. For those of you at the WB reading these reviews on these sets, I would still take a low quality DVD set of the Tarzan series any day over most of the other shows represented here.

At best, this disk a trippy reflection of a transitional time in animation history. Especially for the Hanna-Barbera studio. An interesting experiment for Warner Bros. I hope they try again. Only this time, here's hoping they think longer and harder about what will go into a volume two for this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent job Warner Brothers 20 Feb. 2010
By nightwing22dg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I can't say how excited I was to have this DVD. It is the best selection of 70's cartoons that I could think of. Sure, there were a few left out like JabberJaw & Fat Albert (don't know the copyrights for that one though). The Tom & Jerry Show would have been so welcome here as well (I know it is in volume 2). But first of all, this has Tarzan: Lord of the Jungle. Far and away one the best Saturday Morning Cartoons that I grew up watching. Wish there was a complete series for sale. But to also have Speed Buggy, Josie & the Pussycats, Funky Phantom, Scooby-Doo, The Jetsons, Hong Knog Phooey, Goober and the Ghost Chasers, New Adventures of Batman, and Charlie Chan & the Chan Clan here is really awesome. All very cool shows that I enjoyed watching growing up in the 70's. This disc set is by far my favorite of the Saturday Morning Cartoon releases.

5.0 out of 5 stars LONG OVERDUE!!! 10 Nov. 2009
By P. Mitchell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I purchased all 4 DVD's and I am very pleased. It has been a long time coming for some of the lesser known HB classics to have their day in the sun. To be honest, I thought many of these cartoons would never see a release. There is enough Flintstones, Jetsons, Yogi, etc. to choke a moose. In my opinion, it is great to see these lesser known characters regardless of plot, writing, character appeal etc. Let us not forget, these shows did not have the budget and personnel the aforementioned bigger titles were afforded. Also, owning an official release DVD is much better than the only previous option-low picture quality home recorded DVD's on the auction sites. Grab this before it is too late. I don't think you'll see these released again any time soon.
