Pac-Man! The game that gobbled up a nation's quarters while its hero gobbled up those annoying Ghost Monsters spawned sequels, spin-offs, toys, games and more. Taking note of Pac-Man's avid fan base, famed carton studio Hanna-Barbera hit upon the idea of adapting the game for Saturday morning animation - becoming the first video game to make the jump to TV. Kids were immediately enraptured and a score of other arcade favorites soon followed Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man and Baby Pac-Man from the gaming console to the cathode ray tube.
In this 2-Disc, 13-Episode collection, Pac-Man does battle with Inky, Blinky, Pinky, Clyde and Sue, the Ghost Monster minions of the dreaded Mezmaron, who lusts after Pac-land's precious power spheres. Aided by his plucky and charming wife and son, Pac-Man saves the Pac-President, confronts the vampiric Pacula, discovers the Abominable Pac-Man and more. Pac-Venture awaits - no quarters required!

It's been more than a year and two months since we told you to expect the Warner Archive Collection to release the classic cartoon TV series on DVD, but now the MOD (manufacture on demand) program has at last made it official by announcing Pac-Man - The Complete 1st Season. It's scheduled to begin shipping a week from tomorrow, on January 31st, at a cost of $24.95 SRP for 2 discs and 13 episodes running 312 minutes. The voice cast includes Marty Ingels, Barbara Minkus, Russi Taylor, Frank Welker, Peter Cullen, Alan Lurie, and more! Since this is exclusively being sold through the WBShop online studio store at first (see button link below), they can only ship it to U.S.A. address. However, most Warner Archive titles become available later on through Amazon's CreateSpace program, which ships globally. Here's a look at the cover art:
