Marvel Animation Age added a review of the Blu-Ray releases of The Avengers: Earth' Mightiest Heroes - The Complete First Season in Canada.
I really don't see Disney releasing any cartoon series on Blu-Ray, we barely get any cartoon series released on DVD anymore.

Egad, the bilingual text on the cover of this release looks terrible. What were they thinking?

I would happily buy all of them the very second they hit the shelf. Heck usually I'm in my local Wal-Mart ('cause it's open 24 hours) waiting for the box to leave the truck. And I've got a copy in hand at the register BEFORE it ever hits the shelf!
Why oh why haven't these shows been released in the US?!
I wish there was some way to get whoever has the rights to these shows to put them out on DVD!
NOT ONLY that.
But I'd pay good money to finally own the 80s and 90s Hulk shows on DVD, and let's not forget the Silver Surfer animated series!
If there's anything productive I can do (since wishing and hoping isn't going to get me anywhere) to help make this happen, let me know.
A petition, someone to contact, anything.

The only productive thing you can do that I can think of is to get a multi-region DVD player and import the UK versions of all the titles you want.
It's not much help I grant you.

I wouldn't have any faith in Disney releasing any Spider-Man DVDs. I imagine if they were going to, we would've had the 1990s Avengers and Hulk shows available to tie in with the release of The Avengers movie.
Quite why they refuse to utilise their rights and make a fortune on the Spidey cartoons however, is a mystery I simply cannot fathom.

Any clue as to when Season 2 of Avengers:EMH will be released on DVD?

With no information, I will imagine 13 episodes would have to be released first, and then we'll see a release - I'm going with October as a guess.

I got the Candian A:EMH Blu-Ray the other day. Quality is great. The only issue saw was, as with all cartoons in HD, minimal banding in some shots. But that's only upon close inspection and doesn't distract you at all.

For any UK fans who were wondering, just found this on Amazon.co.uk

4.0 out of 5 stars Utterly brilliant but beware the missing episode, 3 May 2012

This review is from: Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes - Volume 1 - 4 [DVD] (DVD)
Firstly a warning, this is supposed to contain the 'complete' set of series one episodes, but it does not. Episode 4 'Meet Captain America' is not present on any of the DVDs in this set. It is worth pointing out that none of the individual volumes, when purchased seperately, contain this episode either; although it has been broadcast on television many times before. Also I have noted that this episode is present on the U.S. (NTSC Region 1) volume 1 DVD, which makes it even stranger that it is missing from the UK (European PAL Region 2) volume 1 DVD. If it wasn't for this oversight, I would have given this product five stars.
The Avengers Earth's Mightiest Heroes TV series is a truly brilliant depiction of the Avengers greatest exploits. It contains stories with truly great depictions of everyones favourite Avenger characters, which are portrayed superbly. Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Hulk, Wasp, Ant Man, Hawkeye, Black Panther, Black Widow, Nick Fury, they are all in there. They are all both believable whilst being reasonably true to the originals. They square of against some of the greatest enemies the Avengers have ever faced. Hydra, AIM, The Masters of Evil, Kang The Conquerer, Ultron, Loki, and many more, get the full treatment with some incredible story arcs that overlap and intertwine throughout the series. The animation is very well done and has a modern high end feel to it (not CGI thank god), and the acting is spot on.
With regards to the DVD product itself, it is very basic. It is just four DVDs in a DVD case. The case itself is not great, because the DVDs overlap, which makes it fidly to get them in and out. It is far from the best design I have seen when it comes to squeezing four DVDs into a single case. It could also really do with an inlay, or at the least something that tells you which episodes are on which DVD. So if there were marks for presentation they would be very low. Frankly it is very disappointing to see the lack of effort that has gone into the product considering how great the content is.
Overall if you are a fan of the Marvel Universe or The Avengers in particular, this is a must own product, it really does not get any better than this. The Avengers movie is utterly awesome (I have seen it already), and this series is awesome too with a lot more content than the movie (at least 9 hours worth here).

Hi, I was a bit annoyed as I had just bought this and missing the episode to me was false advertising seeing as how it was billed as the complete first series. So I emailed firstname.lastname@example.org and received a very nice e-mail see below
BUA0175601. Unfortunately an error was made on the screen menu with this
DVD that was not detected in our QC checks. The episode to which you
refer was not made available for release in the UK, however, due to
human error the master menus supplied for this release were not adjusted
to reflect this. We always make our best endeavours to ensure we are as
accurate as possible although unfortunately sometimes our standards do
fall short. We are in the process of correcting this mistake.
I have responded If a corrected version is due for release and will it be possible to send this back to be exchanged, and are there any plans to possibly release this on Blu ray so far no news must say though I was not bowled over by the DVD no insert or episode listing and the picture was no great but I'm used to Blu rays and HD so it's been a while since I watched a DVD great value though.
