Storyline

This cartoon series, characterized by extremely limited animation, features five of the most popular super-powered heroes from Marvel Comics: the Incredible Hulk, the Mighty Thor, Captain America, Iron Man, and the Sub-Mariner, each of whom is the star of 13 episodes, adding to a total of 65. All episodes are divided into three seven-minute segments separated by a short description of one of the other four heroes featured in the series. The Incredible Hulk, into whom scientist Bruce Banner changes whenever excited, angered, or bombarded by gamma rays from a machine, frequently combats the Leader, a villainous genius with a gamma-ray-mutated brain. Captain America's foe, the Red Skull, opposes him in World War II Europe, where Captain America's original self, Captain Steve Rogers, is stationed as a soldier. Thunder-God Mighty Thor's evil brother, Loki, concocts nature-twisting schemes in his vain effort to vanquish Thor, Thor's human half, Dr. Donald Blake, and Thor/Blake's love, Nurse...

Loved the show
3 February 2005 | by (Massachusetts, USA) – See all my reviews

I remember watching this show in 1966-67 when it aired on WOR-TV; we saw this on cable TV in Upstate New York. I enjoyed it when my father would watch this show with me. Yes, the animation was limited, and I saw that was the case even as a kid.

To me, that added to its appeal, especially because I hoped as a child to be a cartoonist myself. This was one enjoyable series, and I may want to get this on DVD myself!!

I enjoyed all of the cartoons. I would say that Captain America was my favourite; he reminded me of Batman. I also liked Thor very much, too. But regardless, I enjoyed watching this cartoon, and was unhappy when it stopped airing.

PS: I cannot believe John Vernon had this credit. Very interesting! I just read his obituary tonight on the CBC's Web site.
