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

The Mole Man had made an appearance earlier on an Iron Man segment on "The Marvel Super Heroes" (1966), miraculously Hanna-Barbera was able to get the rights to use him on this series as he is part of the Fantastic Four's rogues gallery. See more »
There can be no doubt that this cartoon ranks as one of the best if not THE best cartoon ever produced period!!! True to the comic with the outstanding talents of Hanna-Barbera!! There can be no doubt that the entire Hanna-Barbera's world of super adventure cartoon series was the #1 series including Birdman, Space Ghost and others. Fantastic Four was and still is a fun watch even for today standards. My only problem was that the company couldn't use the Sub-Mariner because he was with another animation company and so Triton was made instead. But if you look closely this character looked much like his true self. Thanks to the genius of Alex Toth. But don't let this little matter fool you, this cartoon rocks! Stan Lee and the late great Jack Kirby knew this.
