Re: 1960s Animation not on dvd?

My two "Holy Grails" are the Ken Snyder series Hot Wheels & Skyhawks which ran on ABC from 1969 to 1971. A Children's Advocacy Group got the FCC to BAN them because thay claimed they were nothing more than Commercials for Hot Wheels Toys and Cessina Aircraft. A couple of years ago ago I found a couple of Bootleg DVDs that have a handful of Episodes from these Cartoons, IMO a nice little "Blast from the Past", but not the Complete Series (Which I'd buy in a Heartbeat if they ever become available!)

Don't forget The Beatles cartoons - they ran from '65 to '71 according to one source I checked.

I'd love to see The Alvin Show come out in a complete set. As far as I know, only 1 episode has been released.

1967 Fantastic Four
Moby Dick and Mighty Mitor
Shaz-zan
Atom Ant
Secret Squirrel
Touche Turtle
Frankenstein Jr. and The Impossibles
Lariat Sam
Tom Terrific ?
Samson and Goliath
That octopus who hung out at sea world type park, Squiddly Diddly?
Ruff and Ready

Warner Archive seems to be ignoring the 60s stuff for some reason.

Then there are the season of all new episodes of 60s shows made in the 70s for Jonny Quest and Herculoids, maybe others.

The Mighty Heroes

That, along with a Emmy winning "After School Special" Last of the Curlews from '72, are at the top of my cartoon want list. Granted, LotC tops the two as practically holy grail level, The Mighty Heroes is just good goofy nostalgia fun.

I bought The Mighty Heroes at some website which it turned out to be burned from t.v. The transfers were good, but I couldn't believe I liked this junk as a kid.

Re: 1960s Animation not on dvd?

Here's a List of Saturday Morning Cartoons and Live-Action Shows I'd like to see released:

1. Filmation

The Adventures of Tarzan
Fantastic Voyage
The Hardy Boys
Journey to the Center of the Earth
Lassie's Rescue Rangers
Shazam! (Live-Action) Word is this goes unreleased because of a Legal Issue simular to the one that keeps the 1966 Batman from being released!

2. Hanna-Barbera

Adventures of Gulliver
The Adventures of Huck Finn
Devlin
Sealab 2020

3. Others

Barrier Reef
Run Joe, Run! There was a rumor that this one WAS going to be released a couple of years ago. What Happened?
Westwind
Korg 70,000 BC

with all the big budget films on Marvel characters, I don't understand why these haven't been released yet. Some copyright issues?

I still have the VHS tapes and watch them occasionally. The brilliance of Jack Kirby's artwork still makes me smile - even if they are just 'moved around a bit' in the cartoon (if you have seen these then you know what I am talking about).

I would think Stan Lee would be instrumental in getting these released..

Did you know they do sell them on dvd?
Some website sells them and they are transfers off t.v.
I bought all of them except HULK & SUB-MARINER.
They are good decent transfers.
