Pac-Man: The Complete First Season DVD Review

Synopsis: Pac-Man! The game that gobbled up a nation’s quarters while its hero gobbled up those annoying Ghost Monsters spawned sequels, spin-offs, toys, games and more. Taking note of Pac-Man’s avid fan base, famed carton studio Hanna-Barbera hit upon the idea of adapting the game for Saturday morning animation – becoming the first video game to make the jump to TV. Kids were immediately enraptured and a score of other arcade favorites soon followed Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man and Baby Pac-Man from the gaming console to the cathode ray tube. In this 2-Disc, 13-Episode collection, Pac-Man does battle with Inky, Blinky, Pinky, Clyde and Sue, the Ghost Monster minions of the dreaded Mezmaron, who lusts after Pac-land’s precious power spheres. Aided by his plucky and charming wife and son, Pac-Man saves the Pac-President, confronts the vampiric Pacula, discovers the Abominable Pac-Man and more. Pac-Venture awaits – no quarters required

Review: Pac-Man was a HUGE character in his time.  He still lives on as the first symbol of the gaming era.  This cartoon, which lasted two seasons, gets a first season release from the Warner Archive.  Available only online, this great vintage animation series is the first Hanna-Barbera cartoon that was based on a video game.  The premise is simple. the Pac-Man family is in a constant feud with the ghost monsters.  Thats about it!  This one is fun and oh so vintage.  The picture quality is fantastic and its a treat to be able to watch this show for the first time in 30 years!   This one is a must-have for any gamer, fan of vintage animation or pop culture!
