Super Six!
15 December 2009 | by (Durham,North Carolina) – See all my reviews

"The Super Six" was in fact DePatie-Freleng's first ever TV cartoon venture series for Saturday Morning. This was however,a half-hour show that featured a bunch of futuristic oddball characters working for Super Services,Incorporated., a "hero for hire" operation. The "Super Services" segments,which were eight minutes in length,featured Elevator Man(Paul Stewart),Super Scuba(Arte Johnson),Magnet Man(Daws Butler), Granite Man(Lyn Johnson),and Captain Zammo(Paul Frees),not to mention Super Bwoing(Charles Smith). However,Super Bwoing was an inept singing cowboy type that was reminiscent of Hanna-Barbera's "El Kabong"(based on the character of Hanna-Barbera's Quick Draw McGraw),while the second part of the series was the ethnically jumbled "Brothers Matzoriley"(which basically these characters were also featured in the first-ever theatrical short "The Inspector",based on the Pink Panther movies starring Inspector Clouseau,that was also produced by DePatie-Freleng).

The Brothers Matzoriley was voiced by Paul Frees and Daws Butler,along with the talents of June Foray,Pat Carroll,Joan Gerber,and Diana Maddox. The theme song to the "Super Six" was done by the great Gary Lewis along with his Playboy band. Think about it,the year 1966 was also the explosion of the Superhero cartoons that were all over the place. Since this series produced 21 episodes was pleasant entertainment put together by seasoned cartoon pros(the same animators who were behind the theatrical Pink Panther shorts,were also behind this series),since the original episodes ran only during the first season for NBC during the 1966-1967 season. Seasons 2 and 3 were repeated episodes(1967-1968 and 1968-1969). The series ran from September 10,1966 until September 6,1969. Produced by DePatie-Freleng Productions in association with Mirisch/Rich Productions-United Artists Television.
