Movie Reviews

Birdman and the Galaxy Trio...
D. S. HARDEN | L.A.,CA USA | 05/25/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For those that don't remember, Hanna-Barbera ruled Saturday Mornings from
7:00 am (Atom Ant/Secret Squirrel/The Impossibles/Frankenstein Jr.) until
1:30 pm (Johnny Quest) in the 1966/1967 time range.

The most interesting point I wish to make is this:
All three major networks had Hanna-Barbera cartoons. Stranger still, I
don't remember ANY of them clashing with each other during the day!

In Los Angeles, one could flip from chs. 2 (KNXT - now KCBS/Columbia)to
4 (KNBC/National) to 7 (KABC/American) and catch about all of their
cartoons. (I seem to remember Birdman airing on Ch. 4 at the time)

Birdman - It was never said, but he worked with 'our' US Government in
battles with the bad guys. As Communism was big in the 60's, the over-
tones were crystal clear.

The Galaxy Trio - Interplanetary Police who did battle with all kinds
of criminals.

This show wasn't my favorite Hanna-Barbera Animated show (that honor is
reserved for The Herculoids (which aired on CBS) and Mighty Mightor
(which also aired on NBC), but I enjoyed it enough back then to want
to buy it now ($20/US)! It still garners a Five-Star rating!

Hardly terrible

"I surely dont see how someone can say this is terible.I remember these as a child and they always made me happy on saturday morning.I was always glued to the set and didnt move.I guess the packaging is subpar and you need to put some effort into getting the disks out.No big deal i say as watching these again will be well worth it.Sometimes you find packaging like this but oh well,im just greatful to be able to own them and leave it at that."
BIIIIIIRRRRRRRDMAAAAAAN!!!!!!

"Just when I post a review for the Space Ghost DVD box set and requested the release of Birdman and The Galaxy Trio, well, if you're reading this, you'll know where I'm going.

I mean, WOW! What are the odds? Both on the same day. Man, my wallet is going to take a really serious hit on 7-17. And I hope I come across a review for the Herculoids box set as well. Seeing these two listings on the same day certainly gives me hope.

Admittedly, I'm not as nostalgic about Birdman (don't think I'd even remembered him or even heard of him up until about 8-10 years ago, don't know how I ever missed him) as I am about Space Ghost and The Herculoids, but since seeing them on Boomerang, they're now up there with those guys, as far as I'm concerned.

I won't go on any further other than to say, "Keep them coming, Warner Bros!" You're making me very happy right now."
Birdman & the Galaxy Trio

"Now this is a truly good choice. Can't wait for the release date. Wow.
All 40 Birdman cartoons, and 20 Galaxy Trio cartoons presented as complete shows. For years we've laughed at the way "Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law" poked fun at this show. Now we can see the original Super Hero action that inspired it all.
Semi-regularly, throughout the series, you'll see winged Super-hero Birdman gain powers from the sun's energy, and take on F.E.A.R., a criminal organization which sometimes does its own dirty work, and sometimes employs super villains like Nitron, Dr Freezoid and Murko the Marauder.
Unique to the time (1967), they introduced a new character "Birdboy" in the later Birdman episodes, and developed him well, as he assisted Birdman in return conflicts with Birdman's old foes like Dr Millenium and Vulturo.
The Galaxy Trio stories are a fantastic outer space sci-fi Super-hero concept. Meteor Man (an elastic enlargeable hero), Vapor Man (who can turn into various gasses, as well as fire them from his hands), and Gravity Girl (who can reduce or increase gravity) fly through space in their ship Condor 1, defeating many foes. In particular, the music used in "Space Slaves" and "Peril of the Prison Planet" will make me keen to play them again and again.
LET'S HOPE THEY REPEAT THIS GREAT IDEA THEY'VE DONE, BY RELEASING THE 1972 "SEALAB 2020" SERIES which inspired the more recent satire "Sealab 2021"."
