Loopy de Loop: The Complete Collection

Review by KC Carlson An extremely rare piece of Hanna-Barbera history was recently released from the Warner Archive. Loopy de Loop is frequently described as Hanna-Barbera’s “lost” character. He was a relatively long-running character (debuting in 1959 and ending in 1965), but unlike popular HB characters Huckleberry Hound, Yogi Bear, and The Flintstones — whose prime-time series ran approximately during the same time as Loopy’s run — you couldn’t see Loopy’s adventures on your television screen. Loopy de Loop cartoons […]

Batman: The Brave and the Bold Season Two on Blu-ray

Following up on last year’s release of Season One on Blu-ray, Warner Archive has released the followup, Batman: The Brave and the Bold Season Two. I’ve already listed the 26 episodes contained here on two discs. There are no extras, just clear animation and sound. The set opens with something of a departure from the usual take on Batman. He’s not operating out of Gotham City at night on his own. Instead, he and a bunch of other heroes and […]

Young Justice on Blu-ray

I was given a chance to check out the release of Young Justice on Blu-ray from the Warner Archive. I hadn’t gotten into the show the first few times I tried it, but I wanted to give it another shot, for two reasons. I knew it got better later, and sometimes, knowing exactly how a series played out — in this case, that there was no finale, just cancellation, after only two seasons — can set expectations more appropriately. There […]

Young Justice on Blu-ray From Warner Archive

The first season of Young Justice, 26 episodes on two Blu-ray discs, will be available from Warner Archive next week, on August 12. No extras, it appears, but fans of the show (which only ran two seasons) might appreciate having the full season instead of on four separate DVD volumes. (I’ve talked about the first three: Volume 1, Volume 2, Volume 3.) I wasn’t a fan because I wanted to see more female heroes sooner, and I wasn’t thrilled with […]

Batman: The Brave and the Bold Season One on Blu-ray

Warner Archive has just released its first Blu-ray animation package, and it’s Batman: The Brave and the Bold Season One. I’m thrilled, since this gave me a wonderful excuse to rewatch my favorite superhero cartoon. The set has all 26 episodes of the first season on two Blu-ray discs. KC’s already reviewed the show, when it was released on DVD in two sets — here’s Season One, Part One and Season One, Part Two — so I’m just going to […]

Batman: The Brave and the Bold Coming to Blu-ray Through Warner Archive

Coming in November, Warner Archive will be releasing Batman: The Brave and the Bold, my favorite superhero cartoon, on Blu-ray. The first collection will include the 26 episodes of season one, previously released on two DVD volumes. This is Warner Archive’s first animated Blu-ray release. Batman: The Brave and the Bold was a wonderful, fun treatment of superheroics with plenty of guest stars and creative storylines. It’s truly entertaining for all ages. Warner will be announcing more details on a […]
