Super 7 haunted my childhood
3 August 2003 | by (Atlanta, GA) – See all my reviews

I watched one episode of this when I was 7 years old...I think it was the Scarlet Samurai episode. All my life the images and ideas from that show, which were so new and fresh (compared to other Saturday morning fare), ran amok in my mind. It may have been what triggered the realization that things weren't quite right, or that the shows on television were not reflections of reality but rather idealized visions of reality, or perhaps attempts at social engineering being foisted upon us unsuspecting children. It was a very traumatic experience. The Super 7 have haunted my dreams and lain hidden in my psyche ever since, colouring my perceptions and inspiring my imagination. I only recently remembered them, as I was musing on shows that I used to like. I found them hidden at the bottom of a heap of other early animated shows that rocked my world (Battle of the Planets, Star Blazers, Voltron & the lions, not the cars, Thundercats, Visionaries, and others). I really wish I could watch this series again. If anyone knows where I can find it on video, please let me know.
