Warner Home Video (WHV) and DC Comics bring Superman, Batman, Robin, Wonder Woman and Aquaman back together for 32 action-packed adventures with the release of the The All-New Superfriends Hour: Season One, Vol. 1 DVD on January 8, 2008 for $26.99 SRP. The 2-Disc Collector set features renowned DC Comics characters as they fight evil and protect the good people of planet earth.

Originally airing on ABC, the The All-New Superfriends Hour was a huge ratings success for the network and an instant fan favorite. Featuring the World's Greatest Super Heroes, the show also introduced a slew of new characters including Zan and Jayna (aka The Wonder Twins), and their space monkey Gleek. With their iconic exclamation "Wonder Twin Powers Activate!," the twins would touch fists in a burst of light transforming Jayna into the shape of any animal and Zan into any form of water imaginable. The cartoon series also featured guest stars Black Vulcan, Apache Chief, Hawkman and Hawkgirl. The 32 cartoon episodes follow the Super Friends as they confront their old foes and new villains such as the Hydronoids and Dr. Cranum in their quest to protect mankind.

DVD Features:

- "One Dimensional Goodness: The Superfriends and the Good Old Days"- In the 1970s one of the last bastions for conservative programming was the Saturday morning cartoon. This documentary examines how this trend made its way into the world of the Super Friends, and includes a comparison of the characters' treatment in future television incarnations of the Justice League as well as their appearance in comic books.

- "Origins of the Guest Stars" Hawkman, Hawkgirl, the Atom, and Green Lantern made their first animated appearances on Super Friends during this season. Show writers and producers discuss the introduction of these beloved characters to the line-up and their DC Comics origins. Also featured will be the classic rogues gallery associated with each of these iconic heroes.
