Which Super Friends?

As part of their news item about the announcement of the upcoming release of SuperFriends - The 2nd Season on DVD, TV Shows on try to sort out the various permutations of the Super Friends cartoon from the 70s and 80s, and the oddball way in which Warner Bros. is releasing and labeling the DVD season sets:

In 1978, the show continued, retitled as simply Superfriends. That season is the one which aired the episodes announced today for DVD release. At the same time, Challenge of the Superfriends was running adjacent to this, featuring the episodes of the Justice League of America vs. The Legion of Doom. All 16 of *those* episodes are already on DVD in Challenge of the Superfriends - The 1st Season. Since they call that "the first season" and the new title "the second season", we honestly can't tell if Warner means to ignore the 1973 Wendy/Marvin/Wonderdog installments totally.
