After releasing two volumes each of the Saturday Morning Cartoons series for the 1960s and 1970s, Warner has announced the 1980s version.
There’s no volume number in the title shown in the image, so this may be the only one planned. The two-disc set will have 11 cartoons and one extra feature for a total of over four hours running time. The extra “Lords of Light! Thundarr the Barbarian” will “explore the animated origins of this timeless hero”. The set will be available for sale on May 4.
From the image, in addition to an episode of Thundarr, it looks like we’ll get to sample The Monchhichis, the Mister T cartoon, The Flintstone Kids (part of a trend of making cuter, baby versions of existing brands), and others I don’t recognize.
Update: (2/10/10) TV Shows on DVD found the back cover, which reveals that additional shows included are The Kwicky Koala Show (as commenters mentioned), Chuck Norris: Karate Kommandos, The Completely Mental Misadventures of Ed Grimley, Galtar and the Golden Lance, and The Biskitts. I’ve never even heard of some of these!
