krazy koati

Sunshine came softly through my window today

I'm taking a week away from my normal routines and activities and so I've pre-written several entries well ahead of time in order that I don't have to think about that while I'm thinking about much bigger things that I think I'll write about afterward. So for the interim I'm going to the fundamental unit of blogging, namely, making fun of the Superfriends. Specifically this is reviewing one at a time the stories which made up the recent Superfriends: The Lost Episodes DVD release. There are understandably spoilers about the plots, although if you read them probably you don't mind being spoiled about them. I'll try to be sympathetic.

First up: Mxyzptlk's Revenge.
