Storyline

In this series, the adventures of various superhero characters from DC Comics are featured. When trouble erupts, the last son of Krypton doffs his identity as Clark Kent to become Superman. When villians threaten the sea, they must face the power of its Atlantian defenders, Aquaman, Aqualad and Mera. In addition to these featured characters, we have several other heroes' adventures. These include the adventures of police scientist Barry Allen who fights crime as the fastest man alive, the Flash. Katar Hol fights crime as the winged avenger, Hawkman. Armed with the wonderous power ring, test pilot Hal Jordan responds to threats to his sector of space as its assigned Green Lantern. Scientist Ray Palmer opposes evil using his shrinking and density control equipment as the Atom. In addition, these heroes work together for the Justice League of America. Also, the teen sidekicks of these heroes have their own adventures as the Teen Titans. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

Filmation Does Justice To DC's Justice League
1 October 2002 | by stp43See all my reviews

Filmation's 1966-8 foray into DC Superheroes animation produced what remain among the best television cartoons ever. While the overall animation itself will never win any awards, the character designs and backgrounds are superb (due in part to the employment of ex-Jonny Quest animator Anatole Kirsanoff), the voice cast is superior to all, and the music tracks by John Marion and Gordon Zahler are among the finest in filmdom.

Aquaman features some of Marion and Zahler's strongest music scores, while Superman features one of the Man Of Steel's signature theme cues. Bud Collyer, Jackson Beck, Jack Grimes, Marvin Miller, and company flesh out the characters with voice performances that remain among the strongest ever.
