Wonderful Show!
20 November 2001 | by DanseSee all my reviews

My favorite "SuperFriends" series is the first season with Wendy, Marvin and Wonder Dog. My favorite characters in this season are Wendy & Robin. This show can currently be seen on the channel Boomerang from Cartoon Network! Ted Knight (from "The Mary Tyler Moore Show") is the narrator! If you haven't seen this show please track it down on Boomerang and give it try.
