If you watched this as a kid, this is a great DVD set to own for nostalgic reasons. Granted, the special effects are not very impressive for the viewing adults, but our kids had a lot of fun watching it. It's nice to watch it with them and see how they are entertained like we were back then. Although our little boy doesn't understand the plot, he enjoy watching the fighting scenes. For my daughter, she is especially interested in the character designs for the villains in the episodes
