When Reed Richards, Sue and Johnny Storm and pilot Ben Grimm take a premature space flight on a new shuttle, they find themselves massively bombarded with cosmic radiation. Barely managing to re-enter and land safely, the quartet find themselves forever transformed with superpowers. Deciding to use these new powers to help people, they form the Fantastic Four, a superhero team dedicated to the protection of Earth from menaces like the Latverian King Dr. Doom and Galactus, the planet consumer.

For the Season 2 opening sequence, Tom Tataranowicz wanted to cover the scope of the history of the Fantastic Four by not only showing their origin, by featuring several classic Fantastic Four comic book covers brought to "life." The series composer, William Anderson, did a theme and Tataranowicz drove around for hours in his car listening to it over and over. He admitted that is one way that he likes to work on conceptual things, especially Main Titles, just letting images come to mind that the music inspires. Tataranowicz then wrote up a Beat Script and Dick Sebast did the Storyboard. 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

The first season of this cartoon contained painfully bad animation and rather weak story lines and a terrible opening with a cheesy theme song. The characters looked too stiff, especially the Thing, and my 2 favorite guest characters looked awful; Doctor Doom looked badly out of proportion, and the Silver Surfer looked like a walking piece of melted wax. Fourtunately after the series was (miraculously) renewed for a second season Marvel switched to new animation studio and the show was vastly improved, the animation was cool and looked similar to the X-Men cartoon, the characters looked better, the story lines were mostly adapted from the original Lee/Kirby run on the comic with great faithfulness and there were tons of cameos and guest roles from various marvel heroes and villains, including the Silver Surfer who looked awesome, plus it had a great opening that showed classic moments from the comic brought to animated life. If you get the DVDs than take my advice; skip the first season and go straight to the beginning of the second season unless you want to laugh at the bad animation.
