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 »
I used to watch this show in the mid to late 70's, when I was a little boy. I'd get up quite early on Saturday mornings to wait for it to come on. This was in the days when we only got 4 or 5 channels total. At 5am NOTHING was on, except static or rainbow-colored stripes running vertically on the screen. When Superfriends finally came on, around 9 or 10am, I felt really happy for a true Boy cartoon, not sissy like the cartoons my sister had been watching. To emphasize how Boyish the show was, my sister always left the room when it came on, and my Dad even joined me to watch some of the episodes. I liked it; it's nostalgic. Was the storyline really that interesting? It didn't matter. And perhaps I'm the only one, but I kinda -liked- the Wonder Twins!
