70s Nostalgia Trip Nov. 26 2012
By Mark Daniels - Published on
I've been waiting now for Filmation/Warner Brothers to release the "Shazam!" DVD for a seeming eternity; it was my favorite Saturday morning program when I was young, and - as a result - Captain Marvel was my favorite superhero. I drew pictures of him at school and in my spare time, and owned the Mego action figure. (Remember those?) I preferred Jackson Bostwick (first season) as Marvel over the later John Davey, and recall being shocked at the sudden appearance, mid-season, of an entirely different-looking Marvel. Jackson Bostwick, in full costume, once came to my city for a Cerebral Palsy Telethon, and I was too shy to go see him or even call the station to speak with him.

Viewed now from a more cynical perspective, the show itself is the epitome of 70s cheese, and it doesn't hold up well in the new millenium. Still, it's good viewing for nostalgia's sake. Teenager Billy Batson and Mentor perpetually travel the "highways and by-ways" of America in a Winnebago, like Jack Kerouac with wanderlust, yet never seem to leave California. "The Elders" (six animated Greek gods whose initials provide Shazam with his name) deliver fortune cookie riddles to Billy, which then become clear later in the episode - after Billy has encountered a troubled youth of some kind. "In times of dire need," Billy turns into comic book hero Captain Marvel by uttering the word "Shazam" and being struck by a bolt of lightning... but the Captain Marvel of the show isn't your typical superhero: he never fist fights, he stops wrong-doers by lifting the rear wheels of their car off the ground or jamming their car between two trees, he brings in the cops when things get too intense, and he provides a brief moral lecture directly to us at each episode's closing. This Cap doesn't throw punches, he "develops understanding." Parents will love the lack of violence and the lessons in humanitarianism. Kids will love the cape. And if you were a fan of the show then, you'll love the 70s flashback now.

Oddly enough with this DVD transfer, the "moral" section of each episode is of much poorer film quality than the rest of the episode(s). I don't know why this should be so, but it is. (Did they film those segments independently of the rest of the episode, and on lesser film stock?) Warner is aware of the problem and apologetically notifies the DVD watcher before viewing; they also give you the choice of watching the episodes with or without the moral segments.

Well Worth The Wait Feb. 24 2013
By Joel Bowers - Published on

I haven't seen this show since I was 15 in 1976. So I'm glad to see it's out on dvd. The picture & sound quality are as good now as ever. But this version of Captain Marvel is only partially faithful to the original comic books. There's no origin story except the brief explanation by the narrator at the beginning of each episode. We see the six ''elders''- the Greek gods from which Shazam's name is derived in animated form. But where is Shazam himself? Also the role of Billy Batson is made to appear to be about 20 years old. In the original Whiz Comic books Billy was a young paperboy around 10-11 years old. That doesn't stop this from being an enjoyable show. Micheal Gray handles the role of Billy Batson very well as does Les Tremayne as Mentor.Not much has been heard of from Micheal Gray or Les Tremayne since. Does anyone know what are they doing today? Jackson Bostwick looks great as Captain Marvel.He's clearly the best Captain Marvel onscreen thus far.This is a fine show that teaches us morals and values without being overbearing. John Davey took over the role for reasons unknown after Bostwick made the first 17 episodes. Davey's ok in this role except his voice shakes a bit when he says Shazam. On some of the episodes the cartoon images of the elders looks a bit foggy. Was this the effect the filmmakers hoped to achieve? Or is this the result of aging after 39 years? Either way I can easily forgive this because the technology we have today didn't exist back in 1974. Nearly all of the episodes focus on teenagers & the troubles they get into. This is a show everyone can still enjoy today.I do wonder though why is this a 3 disc set? It could easily have been reduced to 2 discs because we get no bonus features at all. By the way do all of you fans know about the Adventures of Captain Marvel serial from 1941? It's available on dvd. You'll find the origin of Captain Marvel altered just as it was on this show. You will see the wizard Shazam-but only once. There are no elders. There's no Mentor either. But Billy/Captain Marvel has a few other friends to lend a hand. Here's a few notes about guest stars on the tv show. The Joyriders episode-Barry Miller plays a teenager. He also did 1 episode of The Secrets Of Isis during this time. Later he was in the movies Saturday Night Fever(1978) playing Bobby C. & Fame(1980) where he played Ralph Garcie a Puerto Rican student at New York City's High School For The Performing Arts. Thou Shalt Not Kill episode-Pamelyn Ferdin plays Lynn Colby. Pamelyn was a very busy child actress. Check out her website Pamelyn for a full list of her roles.The Brothers episode-Lance Kerwin plays a blind boy. Kerwin was a busy child actor. His last known role was James At 15 a short lived tv series from the late 1970's. The Braggart episode-On the end credits Frank Coghlan is listed as having played a guard at a local zoo. Coghlan played Billy Batson in the Adventures Of Captain Marvel serial.Fool's Gold episode-Dabbs Greer best known for his work on Little House On The Prairie plays a prospector.Speak No Evil episode- Danny Bonaduce from The Partridge Family plays Paul a teenager.The Sound Of A Different Drummer episode-Eric Lanueville plays Curtis an aspiring teenage violinist. Around this same time Eric did a few episodes of Sanford And Son. He played Aunt Esther and Uncle Woody's adopted teenage son Daniel.I do hope we'll see Shazam on the big screen in the near future. Hope everybody enjoys the show as much as I do- and the extra history lesson too! Shazam!

I received genuine silver back dvds, NOT dvd-r's Dec 16 2012
By Trewthe - Published on
Just a heads up to let you know, i ordered directly from Warner Archive so that i could get the variant cover art and to my surprise I actually received real dvds!Don't know if it has to do with ordering directly from them or not, all the other titles in my order were purple dvd-r's. Still in hate with dvd-r's, because as a rule they are inferior, but what a nice surprise to not have to worry about it with one of my favorite shows from my childhood!:)

This Live Action Superhero T.V. series aired on Saturday Mornings
starting in 1974, and continued in its 1st run for about 3 years.
It was Filmation's 1st Live Action t.v. series. In the 2nd year,
"SHAZAM!" was paired up with another Live Action show "ISIS",
creating the SHAZAM!/ISIS Hour (each show running its own 30 minute
time slot). "ISIS" (later re-named "THE SECRETS OF ISIS") was about
an original Female Superhero(ine) who was not originally a comic
book hero, like Captain Marvel was. "ISIS" was the 1st t.v. series
to have a female superhero who was the featured "STAR" of the show.

Captain Marvel was an immensely popular comic book superhero back
in the 1940's. In those years, Captain Marvel (at times) outsold
Superman Comic Books. In the original Captain Marvel Comic Books,
Billy Batson was a 12 year old boy, who, by yelling out the word
"SHAZAM", would be "struck" by a lightning bolt, and transformed
into the world's mightiest mortal, "Captain Marvel".

The t.v. series "SHAZAM!" differs somewhat from the original
"Captain Marvel" comic book. On the t.v. series, Billy Batson
is slightly older, I'd guess about 16 or 17 years old. He is
accompanied by a mature gentleman, whom Billy calls "MENTOR".
MENTOR is a sort of Philosophical Teacher who travels with
Billy from town to town (in a recreational vehicle), teaching
and guiding him with sage advise, helping Billy to understand
and to help others (typically, helping a person out of a
difficult situation of his or her own making). Billy helps
out, both as himself, and as a transformed Captain Marvel.

The series ("SHAZAM!") teaches important morals/values that
were/are important to kids (of all ages !!). I believe this
series is a much needed program for these times, as so many
t.v., movie, and comic book Heroes and SuperHeroes (of the past
15 years or so) look and behave menacingly, anti-social, VIOLENT,
un-remorseful, etc. Where are the Bible-Based Morals/Values ??

Parents, Get this for your kids !! And for some parent/child
Quality time, WATCH IT WITH THEM !!! RATED "E" for EVERYONE !!
