Do you have a DC Super Heroes fan in your life?  Both of my girls are huge fans, thanks in part to the hit animated series on Cartoon Network and to my husband who is still a kid at heart and loves all thing DC Super Heroes and Justice League. My husband was first to introduce the girls to the shows and was quick to catch them up on all the characters, their super powers and their back stories.  And, when he saw how excited they were about the show, he, too, got excited as this meant they could watch the show together, play with Justice League toys we bought, and start a Justice League DVD collection, which we are starting with this upcoming DVD release. :-)

We were sent this upcoming release, which includes 2 DVDS, and includes 26 full-length episodes (over 286 minutes of fun).  Each episode is only about 11 minutes in length, which is perfect if you are looking to get your daily Justice League fix, or are letting your kids watch a few episodes before bed, or in my case, need something to keep your kids busy on car rides or when running errands.  My girls have loved watching this DVD, and have already watched in a few times, since receiving the other day.  They both agree that this new release has a wonderful assortment of episodes that captures all the fun and excitement that they are used when tuning in each Saturday to watch the hit animated series on the Cartoon Network.  

My girls give all the episodes two thumbs up and have told me, along with my husband that this upcoming release contains all the popular Justice Leagure characters, so you aren't left wondering why so and so wasn't included.  As I am writing this post, my girls are back at watching this DVD, as it is raining outside.  They are dressed up in their superhero costumes ready to act out the different scenes. :-)

With the holidays fast approaching this upcoming DVD release would be a hit with kids (both young and old) who love the animated Justice League Action series, which airs new episodes every Saturday AM.

More about this upcoming DVD release:

"The world’s most beloved DC Super Heroes are back together – but unlike any iteration you’ve ever seen – as Warner Bros.

Witness the Justice League like never before in this all-new animated series where the pace is quick, the action is relentless and the fun is non-stop! The “Trinity” of DC’s Justice League– Superman (voiced by Jason J. Lewis), Batman (Kevin Conroy) and Wonder Woman (Rachel Kimsey) – are joined by a galaxy of rotating allies and enemies like John Constantine, Zatanna, Booster Gold, Plastic Man, Lobo, Mr. Freeze, Black Adam and Swamp Thing. The Super Heroes must battle enemies that include space invaders and bizarre forces of magic as they try to defend Earth from Super-Villains intent on destroying the planet. No matter the threat, the Justice League is ready for the challenge.

The two-disc Justice League Action: Season 1 Part 1 is packed with a star-studded acting roster, including Mark Hamill (The Joker, Swamp Thing), nine-time Emmy Award winner Carl Reiner (The Wizard), Emmy & Golden Globe winner James Woods (Lex Luthor), two-time Emmy winner Jon Cryer (Felix Faust), Golden Globe winner Christian Slater (Deadshot), Sean Astin (Shazam), Ken Jeong (Toyman), Diedrich Bader (Booster Gold), Andy Richter (Chronos), Jake T.
