    I honestly doubt that WB will release the Fantastic Four 1967 cartoon on DVD, since most of the Marvel library is owned by Disney, in which it makes sense to release it on DVD.

    Ironically is indeed produced by HB, which most of its catalog is owned by Time Warner, which also owns Marvel's arch-rival DC.

    Did you cut-and-paste all that or did you type it from memory?

    The Kwicky Koala Show is being released soon through Warner Archive. Initially, the first episode of this 1981 CBS series had been released on DVD on the compilation Saturday Morning Cartoons: The 1980s, Volume 1.

    That was Tex Avery's last cartoon series that he had actually created and story edited (he was also a story editor on The Flintstone Comedy Show, meaning the 1980 NBC series, as well as being the song sequence director alongside Chuck Couch and Tom Yakutis on the two 1979 Casper specials for H-B, both also originally seen on NBC: Casper's Halloween Special and Casper's First Christmas); he sadly passed away shortly after production began.

    Jermaine, dude, you don't have to rehash the list every time you want to start a thread. We get it, because a lot of us have the same wishes & dreams.

    FWIW, though, I'd not recommend the Thundarr DVD or any other Ruby-Spears series that has been labeled under "Hanna-Barbera Classic Collection". The R-S & Filmways logos have been buried under the mid-90's H-B logos.

    I would personally be interested in seeing Wildfire (CBS; 1986) and Turbo Teen (ABC; 1984).

    As for Thundarr, etc., I didn't know it as that bad. I knew they were (mis)labled as being part of the Hanna-Barbera Classic Collection, but I honestly didn't think they went that far. I'm also thinking that Lazer Tag Academy (NBC; 1986) might be out of the question because of cross-ownership (Hasbro owns the rights to Worlds of Wonder's Lazer Tag, specifically*, and Saban once released a syndicated rerun version called "Laser Patrol", so Disney might fit in there somewhere).

    *I say "specifically" because "laser tag" is also a generic name for the game itself.

    Chalk it up to someone at WB not doing enough due diligence.

    Would be nice to see the complete series of Alvin and the Chipmunks either on DVD, Blu-ray or Digital.

    Part of the reason the 80's Alvin & the Chipmunks hasn't seen a full DVD release may be because of rights issues pertaining to the music used on the show (the covers performed by the Chipmunks).

    Seasons 2-3 of Smurfs is not complete without the Johan & Peewit segments! It was these two seasons that the show was 90 minutes long!

    Yeah too bad Alvin has not gotten a DVD release over the music issues.

    The All-New Popeye Hour (well, the Popeye part, anyway) comes from Hearst Entertainment. Then again, Warner Archive DID release one volume of the Al Brodax era Popeye shorts (which Hearst also owns), so anything is possible...

    Incidentally, the Al Brodax shorts ("Classic Popeye"), All New Popeye ("Popeye: The Continuing Adventures"), and Popeye and Son can be seen on Amazon for free (as of this writing, anyway).

    Speaking of whom, I wonder why his death last year wasn't mentioned here at Toonzone.

    ^^^Cool, just complete Flintstones and I'll be a happy camper. I have most of TNF&BS and the 1980 specials from YT.

    I don't have Prime, it doesn't interest me.

    It's part of Prime, but you can actually watch them for free. That is, you don't actually need Prime to watch it (it will appear as "free with ads"). I've already finished Classic Popeye.
