After saving the earth from a devastating collision with a runaway comet. Flash Gordon is forced to crash land his spaceship on Mongo, a bizarre planet ruled by the tyrannical emperor, Ming the Merciless (Incidentally, not the Ex Leader of the Liberal Democrat Party!)
Flash and his companions, Dale and Arden and Professor Hans Zarkov, face slavery and death at the hands of the Evil Ming. To save themselves and liberate the citizens of Mongo, they set off on a series of thrilling adventures, including action packed battles with Witch Woman Warriors, Froglike Gillmen, Squirlons, Giant Ice Worms, Dreaded Hawkmen, River Dragons, and Ming's ruthless Metalmen.
Since it's creation in nineteen thirty four by legendary cartoonist Alex Raymond, the ever popular comic strip, Flash, has set the standard for sci fi action, even inspiring modern day classics like Star Wars.
The Flash Gordon comic strip is still popular today, making it the perfect time for America's original space hero to soar to new heights in this masterfully animated series.
This DVD collection features all of the episodes from the 1979/1980 Television Series.
