The Superman/Aquaman Hour of Adventure - Their Own DVD for the 'Guest DC Heroes' from Filmation's Supes/Aquaman Series! ***UPDATE: BOX ART***


The DC Super Heroes: The Filmation Adventures DVD arrives this August

Last year Warner Home Video released the Filmation-produced animated adventures of Superman, Batman & Robin and Aquaman...some of the foremost heroes of the DC Universe.

When The Superman/Aquaman Hour of Adventure aired on CBS Saturday mornings in 1967-68, it didn't limit the action to only the Man of Steel and the the King of the Seven Seas; various other DC superheroes would appear as guests in side-stories. Among them were Green Lantern, The Flash (with Kid Flash), Hawkman, The Atom, The Teen Titans (Aqualad, Kid Flash, Speedy and Wonder Girl) and The Justice League (Superman, Atom, Flash, Green Lantern and Hawkman). There were 3 cartoons made for each of these.

The "Guest DC Universe Heroes" from the late '60s program are the focus of a just-announced Warner Home Video DVD release titled DC Super Heroes: The Filmation Adventures. Besides the cartoons, there will also be bonus content that includes interviews with animation experts. Cost is $24.98 SRP for a 2-disc set. The release date is August 12th.

Stay tuned for further details about the contents and extras on this set, plus cover art. In the meantime, here is a list of the cartoon titles for the DC Super Heroes listed above (info courtesy of the Big Cartoon Database, a.k.a. BCDB.com). However, note that we're not certain yet if these will all appear on this release, or if other content (such as Superboy cartoons, perhaps) might also appear:
  • Green Lantern (Hal Jordan)
    1. Evil is as Evil Does
    2. The Vanishing World
    3. Sirena, Empress Of Evil
  • The Flash (Barry Allen, with Kid Flash Wally West)
    1. The Chemo-Creature
    2. Take a Giant Step
    3. To Catch A Blue Bolt
  • Hawkman (Katar Hol of Thanagar)
    1. Peril from Pluto
    2. A Visit to Venus
    3. The Twenty-Third Dimension
  • The Atom (Ray Palmer)
    1. Invasion Of The Beetle-Men
    2. The Plant Master
    3. The House of Doom
  • The Teen Titans (Aqualad, Kid Flash, Speedy and Wonder Girl)
    1. The Monster Machine
    2. The Space Beast Round-Up
    3. Operation: Rescue
  • The Justice League (Superman, Atom, Flash, Green Lantern and Hawkman)
    1. Between Two Armies
    2. Target Earth
    3. Bad Day On Black Mountain


UPDATE: Just a short time after we posted the above, Warner sent out an "e-announcement," pictured below, which shows off a "bust-out" version of the package art (with the heroes flying off the box) and confirming that there will be 18 cartoons on 2 DVDs, running 126 minutes. It also describes the bonus material as an "In-Depth Documentary Profile of Filmation Animation Studio and its Legendary Founder Lou Scheimer."
