A teamup of some of DC Comics' greatest superheroes together, for 2 specials: a race to stop the united supervillains' plot to destroy the earth, then later a roast in tribute to all of the heroes hosted by Ed McMahon.
The super-elastic Mr. Fantastic, the force field-wielding Invisible Girl, the orange rock-covered Thing and the data-crammed robot Herbie make up a team of superheroes dedicated to thwarting would-be world-dominating villains.
Just Imagine! The greatest heroes of our time, banded together to stamp out the forces of evil wherever and whenever they might appear! Based on DC Comics' long-running Justice League Of America series, the show featured the Justice League (Superman, Batman & Robin, Aquaman, and Wonder Woman together with 'apprentice' super-heroes Marvin, Wendy, and Wonder Dog. Other DC luminaries such as the Flash and the Atom made periodic cameos. Written by

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 first time I became aware of this show was when I was sent the highly circulated "wassup" parody of the short-lived budweiser commercial. I thought at the time that the dialog from that short would be far worse than the actual show. Well, it's not. This is one of the worst written shows I have ever seen, and I mean that in a good way. This show is so bad it's good. I can't believe it lasted for as long as it did. Every episode has an absolutely preposterous story that ends with Superman saving all the other useless superfriends. Why is anyone else on the team? In this version Superman has so many powers it's ridiculous, good thing for the villains that there's a bountiful supply of Kryptonite around. At any rate, the standard show comprises of a crisis being called into the Hall of Justice at which point the superfriends formulate a stupid plan and a bunch of them head out. Why? Superman should just say "Nah, I got it." and be back in 5 minutes. So, if you like cheesy garbage and like to laugh check out superfriends if you get a chance. 9/10 or 1/10
