Cinema Sentries and Warner Archive have teamed up to give one lucky the reader the opportunity to win Pac-Man: The Complete Second Season on DVD.
Namco's Pac-Man debuted in Japan on May 22, 1980 and became one of the most successful video games of all time. Pac-Man had a simple premise: eat all the pellets in a maze, while avoiding four ghosts, to move onto the next level. Four power pellets turned the ghosts blue and then they could be eaten as well. The game was so popular it grew into an iconic pop-culture phenomenon.
Hanna-Barbera developed a Saturday morning program from the game that aired for two seasons, from 1982 to 1984. The series presented the adventures of the title character (voiced by Marty Ingels) and his family as they fought the evil Mezmaron and his ghost henchmen. The second season, airing from September 1983 to September 1984 as part of The Pac-Man/Rubik, the Amazing Cube Hour, contained 16 episodes and introduced the characters Super-Pac and Pac-Man's nephew P.J. This Made-on-Demand set also contains the 1982 TV special "Christmas Comes to Pac-Land."
