I don’t remember watching Hero High, but it sounds like the kind of thing some of my readers would have fond memories of.
BCI Ink & Paint are collecting the series, and the press release makes clear that it’s a deluxe package, too, with 26 episodes plus all this:
- Full-length audio commentaries for two segments, featuring producer Lou Scheimer and actors John Berwick and Johnny Venokur. Hosted by Andy Mangels. Commentary segments include episode “A Fistful of Knuckles” and the Kid Super-Power Hour wraparound segments and song.
- Spotlight interviews with actors, producers, writers, and artists (55 mins.)
- “The Magic of Filmation” documentary: A half-hour history of one of America’s most influential animation studios, with producers, writers, animators, historians, and other Filmation personnel.
- Rare “Kid Super Power Hour” footage (approx. 20 mins.): By popular demand, the live-action opening credits, joke segments, and theme song by the Hero High singing group!
- Art and photo gallery
- Booklet with episode guide and trivia
- DVD-ROM material: Scripts and storyboards
It’s already available for preorder at almost a third off.
