HOLY FLASHBACKS! Featuring the voices of Adam West as Batman and Burt Ward as Robin (reprising their roles from the hit live-action TV series), this animated version of the Caped Crusader and Boy Wonder originally produced by Filmation Associates is revered by generations of cartoon fans. With heroine Batgirl and zany sidekick Bat-Mite, these brave heroes match wits with clever criminals like Joker, Penguin, Catwoman, Mr. Freeze and the cosmis villain Zarbor. Using high-tech gadgets plus well-honed detective skills, the two teach their foes the same valuable lessons in every action-packed episode: crime doesn’t pay in Gotham City. Swoop down upon this blast from the past.
The New Adventures of Superman: The Complete Series
THRILLS COME FASTER THAN A SPEEDING BULLET! Originally produced by Filmation Associates, this animated Superman was among the first Saturday morning cartoon shows showcasing the adventures of a Super Hero. In each suspenseful, action-packed caper, Superman defeats out-of-this-world dangers like mermen living beneath the Earth’s core, energy-controlling aliens and time-traveling magicians. Favorite villains the Toyman, Brainiac and archnemesis Lex Luthor also challenge the Man of Steel, but he doles out justice with the simple mantra “This is a job for Superman.” The 36 episodes of retro fun will make younger and older spirits soar.
