Starting with the second season, Marvel Productions switched animation houses and the series got a new look, feel and direction. The series was revamped with John Buscema in mind. See more »
There's Galactus looking hungry / And old Dr. Doom is near / Here come the Skrulls invading / Do you run and hide in fear?
No way, no way / No way / Just call for Four / Fantastic Four
The Human Torch:
That's all. No more. Now *that's* grammatical!
Oh, Reed Richards is elastic / Sue can fade from sight / Johnny is The Human Torch / The Thing just loves to fight / Call for Four / Fantastic Four / Fantastic Four

This Fantastic Four cartoon was part of the Marvel Action Hour along with Iron Man. At first, the animation and dialogue was pretty bad and they had annoying supporting characters, but the series remained true to the comics. The story lines they took from the comics were done very well, like episodes involving the Silver Surfer. When the second season began, animation vastly improved and the series became more serious. Too bad it was the last for the show.
