25 years ago This September... (Special Interesting Facts)
20 September 1999 | by (Atlanta, Georgia USA) – See all my reviews

This TV show got the kid's Saturday Mornings going. For 3 seasons, the world mightiest mortal saved lives, fought evil drug pushers and ended the episode with an educational moralistic message, which became a Filmation staple.
