This web site is dedicated to the 1970s Filmation live-action TV show Shazam! Since going online with my Isis website last year, I have become inspired to begin this site for the show which spawned Isis. Hopefully, this website will bring back some good memories for you!
Feel free to browse around. Content will be added as I get time, so check back for periodic updates!
While you're here, why not visit the message board where you can leave comments about this site or make contact with other Shazam fans? You may also find out some upcoming info about this web site that is posted exclusively to the message board.
Please check back often for updates. I make changes fairly infrequently (as this is a hobby, I have to fit it in as I get spare time), but the date at the bottom of this page lets you know the last time something was changed. Important changes (added content, for example) are usually documented on this page.
Attention, book publishers!
Jackson Bostwick, TV's original Captain Marvel, has written his autobiography, Myth, Magic and a Mortal, which recounts his time on Shazam! P.C. Hamerlinck, who is editing the book, tells me it's basically ready to go, they just need to find a publisher.
If you are a book publisher, or know someone who might be interested in publishing the book, please contact Mr. Hamerlinck at email@example.com.
Jackson also has his own official website up and running. This is the place to get authentic autographed Captain Marvel photos! Visit Jackson here.
We need you! I'm currently looking for volunteers to help complete the episode summaries. If you have episodes on video and think you've got the right stuff to write an episode synopsis, or if you have anything else you'd like to share with the online community (publicity photos, licenced merchandise, etc.), contact the webmaster at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Finally, Shazam! is making its way to DVD VERY soon!
At long last, fans of Shazam! will be able to own the complete series of the show they spent countless Saturday mornings watching on CBS! According to this press release at the website TV Shows on DVD, Shazam! will be available on October 23rd, just in time for Halloween or Christmas gift-giving!
The title is being released by the Warner Archive, a fairly new enterprise where many rare movies and TV shows are made available direct to the consumer from the studio itself.
All 28 episodes (covering all three seasons) will be included on this three-disc set. Filmation fans will know that Isis guest-starred on three of those episodes!
Shazam! was the first of the live-action adventure series produced by Filmation, and was the only one based on a licenced property, which is why Warner Brothers (parent to DC Comics, who own the character) will be handling this release.
Although the set doesn't officially go on sale until the end of October, you can pre-order anytime before then (and get the limited-edition variant cover art) at the Warner Archive online store
Warner Archive titles aren't available in brick-and-mortar stores (part of a cost-saving measure that enables them to release rare shows). Besides Warner Archive, the title should be available at such online outlets as Amazon.com and DeepDiscount.com on or after the release date, so there's really no reason not to order it direct from Warner Archive now!
