Dino De Laurentiis became a "ghost" producer on the series when Filmation developed monetary problems completing the animation involving the use of computers to create the spaceship animation, one of the first uses of computers in traditional animation. Since DeLaurentis was seeking the rights for the use of the Flash Gordon property for a live action film, and Filmation held the rights for all filmed media for the Flash Gordon characters, Filmation and DeLaurentis came to a deal. In exchange for the funding to complete the animation on the series, DeLaurentis would get the live action film rights to Flash Gordon while Filmation would retain the rights to animated projects featuring Flash Gordon.

The 16 episodes are without doubt one of best cartoons of the late 1970's. The graphics sometimes repeated themselves as you saw the same ship getting hit over and over again during some of the battle scenes. But, they had other scenes that were great and the overall story line was great. I only found out later that some of the great facial expressions were the actual actors who did the voices. It should have run more then just one season and the movie they made later. I don't count the 2nd season run later in 1980's as the new episodes were not as good as the ones from 1979. Being a Flash Gordon buff like I was. I loved this cartoon and wish it was available on DVD. I have videos of the originals from the 1930's and Movie made in 1980. I wish I had a copy of this. This was true to comic and the original story and deserves the 10 stars I gave it and two thumbs up.
