It was Fantastic!
11 March 2003 | by (The ATL) – See all my reviews

When "Fantastic Voyage" came out on the big screen in 1966 starring Raquel Welch, it was one of the best pure Sci Fi releases to date and really took the genre by storm. When the cartoons came out two years later they also were popular. For those of us who remember those Saturdays flipping channels between the three networks looking for the right cartoon for that morning's worth of TV, Fantastic Voyage was a always worth at least a look even if you'd seen it before. It had quality voices like Jane Webb, who was more famous for her Betty/Veronica/Sabrina characters on the "Archies" related shows, and Ted Knight, best known for his hilarious work on The Mary Tyler Moore Show.

It also had decent animation and the effect of the ship shrinking out of sight never failed to enthrall as it was supposed to do. There was always a hint of science and that part appealed to the children of the atomic age in addition to the familiar voices. The idea of traveling around in a flying ship was a common theme then on TV with Lost In Space, Star Trek, and Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea all having some sort of flying vehicles you could zip around in and go wherever you wanted to. But the ship on Fantastic Voyage was just that much cooler having been patterned after those shows' ships but with a sleeker design. This made the show stand out over others at the time and gave them a faithful following for years after it was cancelled. Definitely worth a look if any reruns remain.
