Storyline

In an attempted spaceflight, the crew of a ship are bombarded by cosmic radiation. Barely managing to crashland alive, the crew find themselves changed forever by their experience. Team leader, Scientist Reed Richard aka Mr. Fantastic gains the ability to stretch and shape his body to any shape, Sue Storm can become invisible and project telekinetic force fields as the Invisible Girl, and Pilot Ben Grimm becomes a superstrong rock creature known as the Thing. Together with their advanced robot assistant, H.E.R.B., this quartet faces the threats to the world as the Fantastic Four. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@home.com>

Censoring the Human Torch is an Urban legend.
8 August 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Censoring the Human Torch is an Urban legend. The fact is, in the mid-1970s, Marvel licensed TV rights to many of their characters to Universal for TV pilots (including Spider-Man, Hulk and Captain America). Since the Human Torch was licensed elsewhere, when Marvel made the animation deal, he couldn't be part of the Fantastic Four. The fact that he was in the first FF cartoon series (1967) and the recent one (1994) puts to rest the theory that the Torch is too hot for TV.
