Description by OLDIES.com:
Space Angel was the second series produced by the short-lived Cambria Productions, who had previously made the Syncro-Vox animation method famous with Clutch Cargo (1959-1960). Like Clutch, the series used the cost-cutting technique of filming voice actors as they delivered dialog, and then superimposing their lips over still drawings of the characters' faces. Ned LeFevre, an old-time radio veteran who worked with Bob Hope and Red Skelton, was the voice of Scott McCloud. (His voice can also be heard as a newscaster in the classic sci-fi films Revenge of the Creature and The Deadly Mantis.) Hal Smith, best remembered as Otis on The Andy Griffith Show, voiced Taurus, the Scottish engineer, a precursor to Star Trek's Scotty.
Animation and comics legends Alex Toth (Space Ghost) and Doug Wildey (Jonny Quest) created the majority of the artwork as large storyboards, to which the limited Syncro-Vox technique was then added. Space Angel used the same eerie stock music score composed by William Loose and Fred Steiner that was featured in films such as Teenagers from Outer Space, The Killer Shrews (both 1959), and, most famously, Night of the Living Dead (1968).
THE ENCODER: Entire cities are being teleported to another galaxy by a mysterious interplanetary craft of unknown origin.
THE PLAGUED PLANET: The Starduster lands on an irradiated planet overrun by giant mutant insects.
COSMIC SEARCH: Crystal is abducted by the Anthenians, the warlike race who are sworn enemies of the Space Force.
THE PLOT: Zora, the evil Queen of Outer Space, holds the Space Council for ransom in exchange for a powerful superweapon.

I'm grateful that I was able to find these DVDs of my all-time favorite cartoon Space Angel. Now these are over 50 years old so some of the prints are faded or have colors have faded somewhat. But what's really remarkable is that Hal Smith who all of us know as Otis Campbell on Andy Griffith did a whole lot of voice care physicians. And what really shocked me was that he did the voice of Taurus so how Smith was a very talented man. And Alex toth was remarkable artist. You can see some of his ladder work as Space ghost and if you look you can see a little space angel in there too.I was able to get the DVDs in a relatively short. Of time and they came package real well.. sorry that this is so long but I don't know when I'll be ordering again but I have no problems with you all.
