I had forgotten... by VagabondX I had forgotten... by VagabondX
...all about this guy. Anyone remember this live action Disney movie from around 80/81? It was called Condorman. I only remembered it because I found a couple comic books of the movie. I saw it when I was a kid and now I'm obsessed with finding a copy to watch again. Even though its probably not a great movie. It makes me think of Greatest American Hero because the guy is sort of a bumbling hero. He's actually a comic book creator who does a Condorman comic and has to try out everything first. He says he won't put anything in the comics that
wouldn't work in real life.

This was a real quick drawing so please forgive the shakiness.

I remember this movie.

(Wikipedia says: "The film was made available in Region 1 exclusively for members of the Disney Movie Club in May 2008").

I haven't seen it in years but I hope to find a copy someday. I wish Disney would release a special edition DVD or something.

Maybe they will do a relaunch eventually. It would be interesting to see him done with todays moviemaking techniques.

Condorman!! I actually bought the collector's edition that Anchor Bay put out! Woody aka Condorman was like a Batman kinda character. Had his "Condor Car", "Condor Craft (boat)", "Condorman Wings" to name a few.

Your picture is awesome!! Brings back memories..think I'm gonna watch Condorman tomorrow night.

It's another "Wonderful World of Disney" TV movie, I think. Can't be sure of course.

LOVED IT!!! Been looking for a copy myself for a while now. My understanding is Disney did realease it on DVD a few years back, but in a limited run. I've seen copies fetch over 100 bucks!

I think its just because they didn't make many. And probably because it isn't very good and noone bought it.

Sad for me to say that since I use to watch the Justivce Friends and those short 5 minute long Superman episodes from the 60s...Seeing as those came a while before Condorman.

This is awesome! I remember reading the book based on the movie, and wanting to see it. But at the time video was still pretty new, so if you didn't see it in the theaters, you were kind of out of luck.

That is a AWESOME MOVIE! You can't forget names like "Laser Lady" and the Condor-Mobile...it is one of those odd movies that stick with you. Ever seen the movie "C.H.O.M.P.S" a movie about a small robotic super watch dog that fights crime. Go imdb that one...Those 2 are like in the static memory of my soul :P
