Storyline

In this series, the adventures of various superhero characters from DC Comics are featured. When trouble erupts, the last son of Krypton doffs his identity as Clark Kent to become Superman. When villians threaten the sea, they must face the power of its Atlantian defenders, Aquaman, Aqualad and Mera. In addition to these featured characters, we have several other heroes' adventures. These include the adventures of police scientist Barry Allen who fights crime as the fastest man alive, the Flash. Katar Hol fights crime as the winged avenger, Hawkman. Armed with the wonderous power ring, test pilot Hal Jordan responds to threats to his sector of space as its assigned Green Lantern. Scientist Ray Palmer opposes evil using his shrinking and density control equipment as the Atom. In addition, these heroes work together for the Justice League of America. Also, the teen sidekicks of these heroes have their own adventures as the Teen Titans. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

Trivia

The Teen Titans line up was Kid Flash, Aqualad, Speedy and Wonder Girl. Notably absent was Robin. This was because Robin was appearing in the Batman (1966) television series at the time, so they could not use the character. Whenever the Titans contacted each other on screen at the beginning of the episode, each character would appear on separate monitors. There was one monitor that was usually blank, presumably this would have been where Robin's image would appear. See more »

Goofs

Green Lantern normally wears his power ring on his right hand, but in several shots he is firing the ring from his left hand. See more »

Quotes

Barry Allen: It's Blue Bolt again, Wally, and you know what that means. Time for us to get into our speedgear, kid.
[Barry Allen and Wally West transform into The Flash and Kid Flash]

A Great Cartoon Show
6 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Superman/Aquaman Hour of Adventure was my original introduction to the DC Universe beyond Superman and Batman and motivated me into loving comic book heroes to this day. Although the animation quality is considered crappy by today's standards, it will always have a special place in my heart.

I would like to point out some issue a few people have raised about the cartoons and why they were made the way they were.

Green Lantern - the main reason they used some alien kid instead of Hal Jordan's Eskimo buddy in the comics is because these cartoons were made at the height of the civil rights movement at a time when being friends with a non white still made a few people uncomfortable. The television executives at the time had to worry about the stations in the southern states refusing to air their programming over race.

Robin - Why he wasn't leading the Titans in their cartoon segment? Simple. The live action Adam West show was still in production and right in the middle of its original network run at the time these cartoons were made. The rights to the Robin character were still tied up with that show so Filmation couldn't include him. It was after the live action series ended when Filmation got the rights and produced the Batman cartoon show the following season.

Wonder Woman - The television execs were sexist pure and simple. A cartoon about a woman kicking butt didn't sit too well with them (these guys weren't happy campers about Honey West and The Avenger's Emma Peel).

Despite these issues, The S/A Hour of Adventure will always remain one of my all time favorite childhood shows.
