Six minute episodes airing with The New Adventures of Superman (1966-70), The Superman/Aquaman Hour of Adventure (1967-1968), and The Batman/Superman Hour (1968-1969) involving episodes of young Clark Kent evading class to save the day.
A repackaging of Aquaman's half of _"Superman/Aquaman Hour of Adventure, The" (1967)_, including the rotating spot of The Atom; The Flash; Green Lantern; Hawkman; those heroes plus Superman and sometimes Aquaman combined as The Justice League of America; and Aquaman's sidekick Aqualad, Flash's partner Kid Flash, boy bowman Speedy, and adolescent Amazon Wonder Girl, together as The Teen Titans.Written by
I'll admit that Aquaman was never my favorite superhero and in fact I felt that he, along with those like the Sub Mariner, were sort of silly because they had a limited venue and their powers were really only focused on this limited area.
Yes, I understand that the world is over 70 percent water, but that being said, most people (and thus most adventure) do not live on or under the water, thus limiting these heroes.
This series was, in my opinion, very average for the time and even less impressive these days. The animation style was fairly average, the stories very simplistic, and the sound effects very campy.
While I didn't think that it was that impressive, I do give it credit for helping to push many other cartoons forward and for being entertaining to young children, even if it was only for a short period of time.
