FIRST OF ALL YOU NOT ONLY GET ONE OF THE RIDDLERS FROM THE ORIGINAL TV'S BATMAN PLAYED BY THE GREAT FRANK GORSHIN HIMSELF, YOU ALSO GET ADAM (BATMAN) WEST, AND BURT(ROBIN)WARD, AND THE VERY HOT HOT HUNKY BILL NUCKOLS AS HAWKMAN AND WHAT A HOT BODY ON THAT MAN, HUNKY GARRETT CRAIG AS CAPTAIN MARVEL, HUNKY HOWARD MURPHY AS GREEN LATERN. NOT TO MENTION THE VERY FUNNY CHARLIE CALLAS, HOWARD MORRIS , JEFF (DUKES OF HAZZARDS) ALTMAN AND MARSHA (NIGHT COURT, EMPTY NEST)WARFIELD IN A CAMEO AS WELL AS OTHER SUPERHEROS THAT DON'T GET MUCH AIR TIME BUT STILL WORTH THE TIME TO WATCH THIS GREAT CLASSIC! FOR THOSE BATMAN LOVERS STILL WAITING FOR THE 1966'S TV SHOW TO BE RELEASED THIS WILL GIVE YOU THE TASTE YOU STILL CRAVE FOR! THEN YOU HAVE THE SUPER HERO ROAST LIKE THE DEAN MARTIN ROAST YEARS AGO ALONG WITH RUTH BUZZI, PAT CARROLL IN CAMEOS! THIS DVD IS 100% WORTH THE TIME TO GET AND ENJOY ALL OVER AGAIN!

The Cheesiest Show Ever Makes It To DVD

What I love about this way of acquiring movies is that for stuff that does not have a broad enough audience for a larger release can actually get burned on demand for those particular fans that are just dying to own something that they always remembered. I was excited to get a good quality copy of this show and I did. This is about as good as this show gets. One draw back was when I put it in my DVD player, it did NOT play. And this is in a DVD recorder/player, designed to burn DVDs just like the one I received. Once I put it in my computer, however, it played fine, BUT, I like watching my movies on TV, NOT computer. Other than that, I will order from the WB archives again, but if it doesn't play on my recorder compatible player, I may have to stop. That said, buy a copy of the show. It's HORRIBLE, but a must have. How's that for a quick review.

Comments about Legends of the Super Heroes (1979):

What can you say? It's tongue in cheek......if you don't take your heroes seriously, its a fun look at superheroes. Some of the 'roast' performances are actually pretty good. It is star wars christmas special 'bad', but yet this one actually seems to be intentionally made that way.

    It's cheesy... as it was meant to be. It was the '70s. A time when campy shows ruled the television.

            I'm 38 years old and I remember it so I thought I could share it with my 7 year old and 2 year old. They watch it over and over. They like more then I do. Its great because its not the best movie but what ever it's all about heart.

              I thought this was going to be a "movie" but it was a T.V. show done like a "Roast". It had Ed McMahon as the emcee & was certainly different but not what I expected & I felt it was over-priced for what it was. It does have some "old-time" comics in it (like Frank Gorshen - the Riddler) & may be all right for some one looking for nostalgia but not something I will replay very often.
