Q: What do pint-sized space travelers and a teenage science buff have in common? A: Loyal dogs, a calling to protect the planet (and beyond) from evil and they shared a half-hour Saturday Morning TV time slot of animated fun! Space Kidettes and Young Samson kicks off with the adventures of Scooter, Jenny, Snoopy and Countdown - the Space Kidettes - and their puppy Pupstar. Operating from their space capsule-turned-clubhouse, they protect the galaxy from the bumbling Captain Skyhook.
The second half of the show is devoted to Samson, a teen with a big brain, magical bracelets and a dog Goliath who transforms into a lion when it comes time to thwart the diabolical plans of mad scientists. This action-packed 4-Disc Collection includes all 20 Episodes of our resourceful heroes up against space pirates, molemen, monster asteroids and more!
A week and a half ago we reported
that this month Warner Archive would release "The Space Kidettes and Young Samson
"! The plan we passed along was that these would ship from WBshop.com (Warner's online store) as a manufacture-on-demand (MOD) DVD set, with the entire 20-episode run of both shows combined onto a single 4-disc release.
Today Warner made it official, putting this Hanna-Barbera Classic Collection title up for sale
immediately, with shipping available this week. Cost is $29.95 for approximately 400 minutes, presented in full frame video and English mono sound (as originally aired). Here's a high-resolution 3D look at the package art for this cartoon classic:
