 Cheapo sixties animation

| | See all UnionJack's reviews (3)

While this DVD says 2007 on it this refers to the year of DVD release rather than the year it was made. The cartoons collected on this DVD were actually made in 1966 yet they still manage to look absolutely rubbish considering Disney was making cartoons in the thirties that still look good today. The look of the animation on this series has nothing to do with technology not being available at the time, it's just been made on a budget of about 10p.

I'm a big Captain America fan but this is hard to watch even for me. The animation really is that bad, and it's a shame because the stories are generally pulled straight from the comics and are therefore quite good (hence the generous 2 star rating). It's just clearly very low budget stuff and I can't recommend it even to the most nostalgic fans out there. I bought it thinking it must be some new animated series so don't be fooled by the lack of information on the web.

If you remember this from the sixties you may decide to be a bit nostalgic and buy it anyway. Fair enough, but I'm writing this review so that no poor souls like me can say they weren't warned!

Top 100 Games Reviewer

Like the previous reviewer said, the animation has been done on a shoestring budget, but it is based on the original comic artwork of Jack Kirby. The stories are also ripped directly out of the sixties comic books, being fun if simplistic tales featuring all the Cap's main adversaries.

Maybe it's because I used to watch and enjoy these as a child that accounts for my opinion of them, they are very old fashioned and the cover art is very misleading. On the plus side, all episodes are included in one 2 disc package, unlike the previous (partial) episodic releases.

In short, if you know what it is you'll probably enjoy them, if not you'll no doubt be disappointed. Very cheap, very retro kitsch, but very cool and collectable.
