Fun kid's show
28 January 2003 | by QuintessentialQuipperSee all my reviews

I used to watch this show in the mid to late 70's, when I was a little boy. I'd get up quite early on Saturday mornings to wait for it to come on. This was in the days when we only got 4 or 5 channels total. At 5am NOTHING was on, except static or rainbow-colored stripes running vertically on the screen. When Superfriends finally came on, around 9 or 10am, I felt really happy for a true Boy cartoon, not sissy like the cartoons my sister had been watching. To emphasize how Boyish the show was, my sister always left the room when it came on, and my Dad even joined me to watch some of the episodes. I liked it; it's nostalgic. Was the storyline really that interesting? It didn't matter. And perhaps I'm the only one, but I kinda -liked- the Wonder Twins!
