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.
Just as teenage mutant Kitty Pryde is welcomed to the X-Men, the team of mutant heroes are called into battle to prevent Magneto and his Brotherhood of Evil Mutants from crashing a comet into the Earth.
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. That suppression is only broken by an attack by the insane space villain, Thanos. With the knowledge of Galactus' treachery, he moves to stop the being just as he was going to consume Earth. With difficulty, the Surfer manages to stop him and breaks all ties to Galactus.

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 »
Man, that cartoon is so... how I should say that? Stupid? Yeah, it's definitely stupid, but I wanted to say something else. Maybe it's boring? Oh, no it isn't. I watched this stupidness and laughed. It's funny! It's bad, but still funny. Everyone, who ever read some Marvel comics should watch it and take a good laugh, but I think no one of self-respected fanboys (or fangirls, if such a word even exists) wouldn't make it to the rewatch. It's really stupid! Drax is an android? Man, that's just sucks. Oh, and don't even ask me about Adam Warlock (long hair and Ra's Al Ghul beard. It's just killing me!). But there is one really good part - it's picture itself. Jack Kirby-style cartoon - it's not what you seeing every day. You should watch it, but for just one time. You wouldn't want to watch it anymore, believe me.
