Sander Schwartz was the executive producer, with supervising producers Scott Jeralds (Static Shock) and Alan Burnett (Batman: The Animated Series). Linda Steiner (Pound Puppies) and Paul Dini (Superman: The Animated Series) also produced, with Burnett and Dini also serving as story editors. Jeralds also directed all 39 episodes.
No special features have been revealed yet, but all 39 episodes will spread across five discs in this collection. This comes about a week after DC League of Super-Pets hits theaters. So if you’re a bit fan of the super fur kids, start saving up now. We’ll keep you posted on any updates.
