Storyline

This iteration of the Superfriends program contained full half-hour episodes which were among the darkest of the superheroes' careers. It featured only Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, Robin, Aquaman, and the Wonder Twins. Their adventures took them into underground kingdoms of dwarves, mushroom worlds populated by tar creatures, transformed them into vampire bats, pitted them against the Super enemies of an alternate dimension's Hall of Evil, and even a planet Mr. Myxyzptlk has based on L. Frank Baum's land of Oz. Written by Scott Hutchins <scottandrewh@home.com>

My All Time Favorite Episode Of World's Greatest Superfriends!
23 June 2001 | by (Atlanta, Georgia USA) – See all my reviews

My all time favorite episode is The Superfriends Meet Frankenstein. All I can say is that it was THE one all time favorite episode of that show, being that Mary Shelley, the original author of Frankenstein, would be stunned and very pleased that the nice people would do a good job in updating the Frankenstein legend for short attention spans. In my opinon, it would also encourage the young people to read the original book at their library or at the bookstore.
