Somewhere out in deep space - and out of the creative imagination of the animation aces of Hanna-Barbera Studios - live the Herculoids. Humanoid Zandor, along with his wife Tara and son Dorno, lead a group of unique creatures: Zok the flying dragon, powerful simian Igoo (who possesses rock-like skin), rhinoceros hybrid Tundro and two protoplasmic wonders appropriately named Gloop and Gleep. Together, they use their diverse super strengths to defend their utopian planet against attack from such sinister invaders as the Pod Creatures, the Reptons and the Mutoids. For all-family entertainment, this 18-Episode, 2-Disc Collection of The Herculoids: The Complete Original Animated Series is out of this world, literally.

We try to NOT keep mentioning this for ever WAC release, because it gets old for many of our readers (plus it's noted in the WBshop listing), but just to bring it up again: due to restrictions beyond Warner's control, items sold at the studio's online store may only be shipped to U.S.A. destinations (however, most WAC titles are available later on through Amazon.com, so keep an eye on our site's listing for this title and we'll add that link when it's available).
