The new year is starting off right when Super Friends: Season One – Volume One gets released on January 5, 2010 according to a Warner Home Video press release. This is the original series that featured Wendy, Marvin and Wonderdog instead of the Wonder Twins and Gleek. These wannabe teen superheroes and their caped dog help Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Batman and Robin keep the world safe. Why weren’t there child labor laws to prevent kids under 18 battling evil villains? Super Friends aired on ABC Saturday mornings back in 1973.
The boxset will contain 8 of the 16 hour long episodes including “The Power Pirate,” “The Baffles Puzzle,” “Professor Goodfellow’s G.E.E.C.,” “The Weather Maker,” “Dr. Pelagian’s War,” “The Shamon ‘U’,” “Too Hot to Handle” and “The Androids.” No news about possible bonus features.
