From days of long ago, from uncharted regions of the universe, comes a legend....

*squeee!*

I discovered that Voltron: Defender of the Universe is available on DVD!  *squeal!*  I loved this show when I was a kid!  Well, the Lion Voltron anyway, I always thought the Vehicle Voltron was stupid.  Even through I hadn't seen the show in decades, I could still quote the opening narration.

My SO and I watched the first 4 episodes last night.  It's a lot cheesier than I remember.  Especially Sven's voice.   "Kitty is excited" became a running gag for us.   Still loads of fun though.

I remarked that this show seemed awfully violent for a cartoon, but apparently it was much toned down from the original Japanese GoLion series.

Unfortunately, only the first 3 of 5 volumes has been released.  Wah!
