Hawkman Who's Who Figure

I recently got a new phone. My old Treo 650 was getting buggy and not holding a good charge. Upgrading my plan has given me a few new features. I can now blog and upload photos to the site from my phone (thanks Flickr). This should come in quite handy on May 27 when the new baby arrives.

Filmation DC 1966 Cartoon DVD MenuGreen Lantern Menu from DC Heroes DVD

In 1966, Filmation successfully launched The New Adventures of Superman cartoon. It’s success led to a number of spin-off shorts and series. Between 1967 and 1969, Filmation produced a series of 18 shorts featuring The Atom, The Flash, Green Lantern, Hawkman, the Justice League, and the Teen Titans.

Growing up, I remember seeing these on the Bozo show and years later when they began running on Cartoon Network’s Boomerang in between shows I began recording them. A few episodes were recorded off of S-VHS tapes from a friend and cleaned up and enhanced. All in all, it’s a great looking set. Here’s hoping that Warner will release this series on DVD with extras similar to the New Adventures of Superman and the Adventures of Aquaman sets.
