This is a menu I created for a DVD set of the 1966 Adam West Batman TV show created by a Canadian friend of mine. I created 29 different menus for the set (one for each disc).
Another set a long time in the making, the SuperFriends 1973 cartoon is easily my least favorite of the SuperFriends series. Since Warner has done a great job of releasing the other series in the SuperFriends line of shows, I had to complete the original set. Something tells me we may not see this set for a while.
Featuring Wendy, Marvin and Wonder Dog, this was the first series to refer to the Justice League as the SuperFriends. Each 44-minute episode featured the main cast of Superman, Batman, Robin, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Wendy, Marvin, and Wonder Dog battling a villain or menace created specifically for the show. No comic villains were used.
Two episodes (of the 16 total) did feature guest appearances from other heroes. Green Arrow played a prominent role in one episode and Plastic Man made a minor appearance in another.
When Cartoon Network announced the Krypto cartoon a few years ago, I was excited to see a new cartoon for kids done in a more classic style. So many shows now feature wacky characters doing wacky things. The idea of an innocent adventure cartoon for kids was appealing. The series premiered and I wasn’t disappointed.
As with many of the shows I record, I wanted to make this set to share with Carter. I also wanted to experiment with the menu as well. I had figured out how to create custom thumbnails, but that wouldn’t work on a set with so many episodes and such long episode titles. I decided to use one large thumbnail in the shape of the Superman S. Placed behind Krypto, it plays the intro to the show and provides the background music for the menu.
I recently completed this set. It took quite a while to catch all of the Season 2 episodes, as they premiered with little fanfare. However, the set is now done a looks great.
