    Yeah, I find it really interesting. It's a nice counter-piece to HB's Three Musketeers.

    A large part of it is an evolution of the animatic Marvel Superheroes '66 from Grantray, down to the music cues. Then other parts have a cinematic feel that was beyond their DC output of the time. I'd love to know who the animators were.

    Filmation Batgirl is Guinevere. Ted Knight is somewhere in there. Filmation Aquaman, aka Batman '66 narrator, is Arthur.

    One of my favourites:

    The Completely Mental Misadventures of Ed Grimley only ran one 13 episode season. Short did a bunch of his characters and it had lots of amazing guest stars. I wish there was more.

    I loved the Ed Grimley 'toon. It featured Jonathon Winters, too--what's not to like?

    I'm a huge fan, too of Freakazoid!, which while not exactly a failure, ended too soon for my liking. Egad that show cracks me up.

    One of the best TV shows EVER. My brother has every episode on VHS from the first run, and I remember introducing my kids to it when Cartoon Network re-ran it years ago. And they loved it, I must say...
