        Comments about Moby Dick and the Mighty Mightor:

        I watched this series during its original run in the 60s. There was a channel showing it in syndication when my kids were coming along and they enjoyed it as well.

        We all have a hearty grin on our faces now if I pop in one of these discs to watch for a while. It's not the type of fare that makes one want to watch for hours (depending upon the age of the viewer), but it was far ahead of its time.

        I was interested to note these discs are burned. Not a pro or a con (I hope), just interesting. These were really good short stories deserving of remastering and picture enhancement.

          This was a blast from the past. For those of us who grow up in the 60's this was what I loved to watch on Saturday Mornings.

              Comments about Moby Dick and the Mighty Mightor:

              Glad to see this series finally on DVD. I remember watching this series as a kid back in the 70s. Great characters and animation. This was part of the true golden age of Saturday morning animated entertainment shows. Thanks WB for giving us the chance to own this series. You made the kid inside me very happy.

                THIS is how great cartoons should be! Brings me back to the great Saturday morning toons of old! The storytelling was the key, though the animation, which Alex Toth really brought out, wasn't half-bad either.

                Comments about Moby Dick and the Mighty Mightor:

                As I have said in my Herculoids review, I am happy to finally have this Alex Toth, Hanna Barbera action adventure cartoon series, Finally there is a place for fun,hard to get cartoon and movie titles!(Warner Archive collection) While remastering and restoring would make these cartoons look more polished and mint conditioned I still enjoy these high quality prints that are vibrant and colorful! I find it fun to spot all the fun action, humour and thrills that Action for childrens television put down and censored from later tv cartoons,which made most of them bland and dull in the 1970s and 1980s!! Bruce W. Timm(1990's Batman the animated series) was influenced by Alex Toth's character designs and the Max Fleicher Superman cartoons so it is fun to look back at these 1960s action adventure episodes and their place in fantasy animation history! I wish there was an art gallery feature on this 2disc dvd set for displaying Alex Toth's model sheets for Moby Dick and Mighty Mightor! Moby Dick with two kids here is certainly different from what Herman Melville had in mind with his whaling novel! But maybe Moby here is the vicious Moby's friendly lost brother! Mightor's throwing and hammering of the bad guys reminds me of both Popeye and Superman! Again I really hope Hanna and Barbera's SHAZZAN series with the SHAZZAN genie becomes available really soon like in this spring, summer or fall of 2012!! It is hard to wait to have all these Alex Toth 1960s cartoons in my collection!! So get them while you can!!

                  Another well-prepared release of a treasured Hanna Barbera classic! WB Archive has not missed yet with their 60s and 70s cartoon releases. Keep buying, so we can encourage the creation of more of these rare products!

                      I remember sitting on the floor eating my morning cereal and watching cartoons like this. We knew the theme music and often pretended to be these heroes when we went outside later in the day. Thanks for bringing back these classics. Cartoons you can actually watch and root for the good guys because you KNOW who they are!
