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.

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 stories and art direction for the series more than make up for its spare animation. These cartoons were made when companies understood that translating a comic to the screen requires keeping intact the elements that make the comic enjoyable and successful. If you enjoy the Lee/Kirby era of the Fantastic Four, you'll enjoy these faithful adaptations. Series is a lot of fun.
