The super-elastic Mr. Fantastic, the force field-wielding Invisible Girl, the orange rock-covered Thing and the data-crammed robot Herbie make up a team of superheroes dedicated to thwarting would-be world-dominating villains.
When the planet Zenn-La is threatened by the cosmic giant Galactus, a being that must drain whole planets of their lifeforce for sustenance, Norrin Radd must act. He makes a bargain to be the scout for the being, to search for uninhabited planets, in return for for Zenn-La's survival. Galactus agrees to this and changes the man into the powerful Silver Surfer, but he also submerges his humanity to remove his qualms about selecting populated planets for consumption.

After 13 episodes in the 1st season of the show Marvel had planned a 2nd season with 13 more episodes for The Sliver Surfer. But the 2nd season didn't air because Marvel was facing bankruptcy problems and couldn't afford to air the 2nd season even though the show had good ratings. See more »
I really thought the Silver Surfer series was very neat and I also like all the computer animation that was in there! But I cannot believe why Fox Kids would cancel it. Because they should of had some more seasons just like some other Marvel Comic Book heroes that got their own shows like Spider-Man (1994), X-Men (1992) and The Incredible Hulk (1996). But it was again those stupid Power Rangers fault! Yet again! Because this show was one of my all time favorite shows that were on Fox Kids. The other shows that are my all time favorite Fox Kids shows are Spider-Man (1994), X-Men (1992), Life with Louie, The New Woody Woodpecker Show (The 1999 verison), Oggy and the Cockroaches, Mad Jack the Pirate, Toonsylvania, Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century, Big Guy and Rusty the Boy Robot, Digimon: Digital Monsters, Medabots, Mon Colle Knights, Action Man, Flint the Time Detective, Space Goofs, NASCAR Racers and The Avengers. Now that Marvel is doing well, I hope they try to bring the show back and show the episodes of the second season.
BOTTOM LINE: ANOTHER GOOD MARVEL COMIC BOOK CARTOON SERIES ON THE PAST FOX
