More Action and Less Drama!
The way Justice League Action shows should be!
This DVD with twenty-six 11 minute episodes contains the first 13 episodes from season one of Cartoon’s Network’s Saturday morning show Justice League Action, an American animated television series based on the DC Comics superhero team of the same name. In this series our favorite heroes, Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman lead a group of superheroes, the Justice League, in defending Earth from the super villains intent on destroying the planet. Of course, the heroes must battle enemies that include everything from space invaders to bizarre forces of magic. With little complexity of plot and lots of humor and action, this series is aimed at the often short attention span of most youngsters under the age 12.
Because Justice League Action airs extremely early on Saturday mornings it has appeared as just a brief blip on Cartoon Network’s Saturday morning line-up. Getting little attention from fans and media alike. Even though, it has earned favorable reviews from most everyone since its release in 2016. It is definitely a hidden jewel among what has become a lackluster lineup of shows. In recent years, we have been missing the simplicity of getting lost in a cartoon and just being entertained for the sake of being entertained. This series reminds me of the comics that I used to enjoy as a child so I was pleased when our grandson enjoyed watching them as much as we did.
