Just the other day it was announced that the complete Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future series would be released on DVD. From the press release sent to us today we’ve learned that the 1994 CBS aired Skeleton Warriors is also getting a complete series release on December 6th, thanks to show creator Gary Goddard and Video Services Corp.!
Now just stop a moment and drink in that sight, that is a Drew Struzan poster! That absolutely fits in with the Halloween spirit on the Retroist this month!
“The animated cartoon, which ran for 13 episodes as part of CBS’ Saturday morning line up, follows the struggle of Prince Lightstar and The Legion of Light, defenders of the planet Luminaire from the ghastly Baron Dark and his evil Skeleton Warriors!
The Skeleton Warriors 2-DVD set, running 286 minutes, will be priced at just $19.98. In addition to the show itself, DVD Producer Roger Lay Jr. has also included:
• Bad to the Bone: The Making of Skeleton Warriors – a 45 minute
documentary on the origins and development of the show.
• Audio Commentary on Select Episodes with creator Gary Goddard and coproducer
• Galleries of Concept Art. – AND MORE!”
Like the Captain Power announcement it turns out that the Skeleton Warriors release has it’s own Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Skeleton-Warriors/211771518833072. Which is where I found that awesome Drew Struzan poster for the series as well as the intro on YouTube that you see above.
