Tune in to Amazon.com/LisaEdelstein to participate in the live conversation and even ask a question yourself. Plus, catch up with Christina Ricci, star of new Amazon pilot "Z." The livestream is best viewed on laptops, desktops, and tablets.
This series featured two characters, Super President (James Norcross) ( voiced by Paul Frees) and Spy Shadow, the living shadow of Secret Agent Richard Vance (both magnificently voiced by Ted Cassidy). Forget the silly title Super President. What we have is a noble caring man who, with his aide, Jerry Sales, fights menaces to society with his element changing powers. The stories are sometimes silly, but sometimes poignant and profound. The writing varies, but is sometimes excellent. The background music is sometimes very effective. If only this could be commercially released.
The Spy Shadow segment (one in each episode) is sometimes silly and sometimes charming. This occurred during the wane of the secret agent era. This, like other children's shows, taught values and emphasized right over wrong. The office of the president was shown with respect. I have fond memories of this wonderful series produced by David H. DePatie and Friz Freleng.
