        Comments about Valley of The Dinosaurs:

        After buying the Alex Toth animated titles of the 1960's,JONNY QUEST, SPACE GHOST AND DINO BOY, BIRDMAN, THE HERCULOIDS, MOBY DICK AND MIGHTY MIGHTOR, SHAZZAN AND YOUNG SAMSON I purchased the 1974 VALLEY OF THE DINOSAURS. While Alex Toth is not credited with doing the character design on this show, the Butler family and the cave people do have Alex's simplicity design look to them! In the 1970's Action for Children's television and network executives started to put down restrictions on cartoon violence and other things that caused a watering down of tv cartoons in the 70's and 80's! VALLEY OF THE DINOSAURS managed to come up with interesting storylines in spite of these restrictions. The 16 episodes here are not bland and silly like SCOOBY DOO and SUPER FRIENDS! And the show has thoughtful writing and dialog. In the Volcano episode John Butler(voiced by Mike Road, Race Bannon in Jonny Quest) saves the cave people's village by diverting the volcano's lava away from their homes by breaking a stone ledge in front of the lava by causing wood stakes in the ledge to swell up with water, thus breaking the stone ledge free! That's using your head! And the Butlers must choose to either send a message by radio to an airplane to rescue them OR save their caveman friend's life! They of course save their friend! So they stick together! Good voice acting, handsome design and narrow escapes from dinosaurs combine to keep one's interest! But I do wish for some of the rock em, sock em action of DINO BOY and MIGHTY MIGHTOR! Mightor would throw a Tyrannosaurus rex over his shoulder and smack into trees! And Caveman Agh would shoot an arrow into a pteradactyl's wing! And remember Terrible Turu episode of Jonny Quest with Race Bannon shooting a bazzooka at a black Pterannadon! WOW!! So VALLEY was not allowed to do that! But I do give credit to Hanna Barbera for making this show higher in quality then most of their shows at that time. Too many bland SCOOBY DOO lookalikes! So I'm glad to have this show to compare to earlier cartoons! It's still fun! On a sad note, my mother,Makoto Hayashi Hill died on Sept 2, 2012 this year. She was 91 years old. She died because of heart attacks that were diagnosed originally as heartburns. By the time the docters realised what was happening my mother's heart was too beat up to go on and she died in her sleep at the hospital. Before that my mother enjoyed the dvds I ordered from Warner Archive, THE FLIGHT OF DRAGONS, THE PHANTOM TOLLBOOTH, INVITATION TO THE DANCE'S SINBAD THE SAILOR ( starring Gene Kelly), THE 7 FACES OF DOCTER LAO (starring Tony Randall) and the U.P.A. cartoons in TCM SHOP's JOLLY FROLIC'S U.P.A. cartoon collection. So thank you Warner Archive and TCM SHOP for making these videos available online! Not only did you bring back fun childhood memories back to me, but you helped make my mother's last months on earth enjoyable with titles she had not seen before! I miss my mother very much but she loved me so much and I loved her greatly! THANK YOU AGAIN!!

        I hope WB offers all of the Hanna Barbara classic shows, particularly the ones from the 70's and early 80's. Lowering the price would be great.

                  These cartoons were as laid back as the 70s itself. Very good cartoons ! More from this era are needed.

                    A great nostalgic look back in time to when Saturday mornings were the high-light of a kids week. A fun way to spend some time with children and grandchildren who have probably never seen the greatest action adventure cartoons ever made.

                      I enjoyed it very much watching it again. It was my favorite cartoon show on Saturday's morning when I was younger in the 70's. I play it in the weekends with my family to spend time together. The only thing it should have on it is the episodes number when playing the video DVD it didn't show up on the screen.
