A rocket carrying four young people--scientific genius Reed Richards, his World War II buddy Ben Grimm, his wife Sue Richards and Sue's hot-headed brother Johnny Storm--is bombarded by cosmic rays while orbiting the Earth. The radiation gives them special powers: Richards can now stretch his limbs, Johnny can burst into flame, Sue can render herself invisible, while Ben has been physically transformed into a big orange rock and given super-strength. They decide to name themselves The Fantastic Four, and use their powers to battle world-dominating villains such as Doctor Doom and The Mole Man. Written by

The stories and art direction for the series more than make up for its spare animation. These cartoons were made when companies understood that translating a comic to the screen requires keeping intact the elements that make the comic enjoyable and successful. If you enjoy the Lee/Kirby era of the Fantastic Four, you'll enjoy these faithful adaptations. Series is a lot of fun.
