Storyline

A rocket carrying four young people--scientific genius Reed Richards, his World War II buddy Ben Grimm, his wife Sue Richards and Sue's hot-headed brother Johnny Storm--is bombarded by cosmic rays while orbiting the Earth. The radiation gives them special powers: Richards can now stretch his limbs, Johnny can burst into flame, Sue can render herself invisible, while Ben has been physically transformed into a big orange rock and given super-strength. They decide to name themselves The Fantastic Four, and use their powers to battle world-dominating villains such as Doctor Doom and The Mole Man. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@soltec.net>

Trivia

Marvel had a very good year in 1967: "The Marvel Super Heroes" was still going in syndication, and it introduced two shows on network Saturday morning television: The Fantastic Four, done by Hanna-Barbera, and Spider-Man done by Krantz Films. Fantastic Four began one half-hour before Spider-Man, debuting on September 9, 1967 at 9:30 in the morning, with Spider-Man following at 10:00 A.M. See more »

The Fantastic Hanna-Barbera do it AGAIN!
22 January 2003 | by TheMan3051See all my reviews

I was never much of a Fantastic Four comic book reader but I must say that I highly enjoy this show. It was fun, exciting, and at times funny. Courtesy of the Thing! More over, it featured great villians like Doctor Doom. It's a great show for both fans and non-fans of the classic comic book characters.
