    I was at Wal-Mart today and I saw that they have finally released the first episodes of Super Friends. The Wendy and Marv episodes are the ones I remember loving as a kid and just seeing them released brought back this flood of memories and sensations. Anyone else have fond memories of this show?

    I did. Is there any site that lists the DVD releases in order? I have some of the DVDs, but when I Wiki'ed the show, whoa, I had no idea how long it was and how many versions there were.

    When I was a kid I cried once because I awoke on a Saturday morning too late for Superfriends.
    TRUTH

    Yeah, I've been waiting for a "Complete Collection" box set before I buy.

    Since Super Friends started coming out on DVD I've been dieing for the '73 series. Boy it's been a long ass wait. It was the first ever thing I got into, and set me on track for all things geeky for the rest of my life. Sadly I haven't seen any of the original series since I was 4 years old... so I'm kind of experencing what I think of as true nostalgia.

    Super Friends is terrible, but because of the kid in me.... they are awsome! ... and I was suprised to find out that they are hour long episodes (50min) and that the stories aren't nearly as bad as I thought.

    Observations....

    -Oh my, look at how many 'Happy Whales' there are.
    -"Holy Shhhhaminite" -intentional 'Holy Shit' joke in SuperFriends? -how cool.
    -Aquaman is useful.... sort of
    -Mad scientists are just misunderstood people trying to do good for mankind.
    -Marvin has Super Leap ability.
    -The Batmobile most of the time, but not always; has a back seat.
    -WonderWoman flies her Invisible Jet with her MIND! (but only in one episode :(  )
    -In the episode "Shaman U" the whales are unhappy, until the end when one gets real happy
    -It's easy to stop big industy from polluting.... excpet for three hold outs... and they will come around.
    -Flying saucers some how look like a full moon, when they don't.
    -History causes all the bad things in society.... so it must be destroyed.
    -Wendy has no super powers
    -Wonder Dog has no super powers... but does have a super cape.
    -Bat Man smiles a lot.... just like whales.
    -Superman uproots trees for all sorts of day saving manovers, including saving Wonder Woman from a flight of stairs.
    -It's not polite to park your Invisible Jet on someones Rose Garden... it's best to park next to it.
    -Adults will listen to kids because they always are trying to bridge the generation gap.
    -GEEC will do everything for me for FREE ( take that Ipod )
    -Batman and Robin are expert rock climbers... when climbing down, but climbing up is a different story.
    -Wonder Woman's Magic Lasso works on aliens. Tell the truth alien!
    -There were no guns in '73
    -The Trouble Alert was orignally the Troubalert. wow.
    -Apparently there is super strong sea weed.
    -Plastic Man wouldn't hurt a mouse.
    -Super Friends have Communicator Rings. Big ones.

    I looked for a informative artical that use to be up at TVshowsOnDVD, but couldn't find it. Look for it on wiki, I know they have the basic run down.
