Trivia

DC launched a Super Friends treasury sized edition to tie into the cartoon, which included a section, drawn by designer Alex Toth, which explained the animation process for the show. A regular comic series followed, which explained that Wendy was the niece of Batman, though how that was possible was never explained. Wendy and Marvin were later replaced by the Wonder Twins, after their debut in the All-New Superfriends Hour. See more »

The Whimping out of Super Heroes
28 March 2003 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

I pretty much grew up reading the comic books that D.C. published in the 70's and 80's, so as a seven year old I was excited to hear that a new cartoon with all the great heroes that I loved was coming out. Imaging my shock when this turned out to be a wimpy piece of garbage that had our super heroes imparting valuable life lessons to the two annoying brats that they were saddled with, Wendy and Marvin, and their flea-bitten mutt, Wonder Dog.

Too bad this came out after several parents watchdog groups eliminated what they perceived as violent content from all children's programming. If I want to get valuable life lessons I will look at either the children's shows on P.B.S. or at another show that came out around the same time, Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids. At least that one was entertaining.
