My 1st Impressions:  I was looking forward to this series.  I enjoyed Big Hero 6 on the big screen and seeing the characters back in action interested me.  This DVD collection offered a good number of pieces with the start of the series, the movie and the shorts.  This added up to a solid offering if you enjoy the series.  My problem is I am not a fan of the animation style of the series which is a stark contrast to that of the original film.  This made it tough for me to watch.    I would think most kids who are used to TV series animation in this style will not have the same issue and will enjoy seeing their favorite characters from the film back in action.   The release only features a DVD version, no digital or Blu-ray.   Also there are no traditional bonus features.   If you are fan of television animation,  having the origins of this series will be a solid addition to your library. If you are a fan of Big Hero 6 and have not seen the series I would recommend watching at least an episode before deciding to add this to your collection.
