There was a Shazam! cartoon back in the early '80's by Filmation, as part of the "Kid Super Power Hour" on NBC... the animation was very faithful to the CC Beck/Kurt Schaffenberger style.

Since this is a SUPERMAN board, let's at least keep it DC.

I also vote for a Hal Jordan Green Lantern cartoon series or a Flash series and of course, Capt Marvel

BUT the problem these days seems to be the poor animation I've seen coming out of the DC sanctioned stables lately... this manga look they're going for lately.  It doesn't work.

Oh for the days of Timm and 1960's Filmation

Well, I'm not a huge fan of the anime style of Legion of Super Heroes, but the Filmation style was very primitive.

Well, yeah, the Filmation ANIMATION was primitive, but the heroes looked heroic.  Superman looks like Curt Swan did the animation...

I DO like anime style... just not on my DC heroes

Never watched the TT 'toon, but I like the anime/Timm mixture in the LOSH cartoon.

Quote from: nightwing
And which I seriously hope does NOT get made as a live-action comedy with Jack Black.  :shock:

My understanding is the whole Jack Black thing got blown way out of proportion.

I mean, I don't think they wanted Jack Black to be HAL JORDAN, that's the thing. They just wanted him to be some very goofy, other guy that becomes a Green Lantern. That's a world of difference between the two ideas.

As long as he's not Hal, I wouldn't mind seeing Jack Black in a Green Lantern outfit, hamming it up Adam West style.

A Justice Society cartoon, set on a different earth (or at least a different era) from the Justice League would be fun. We saw a JSA knock-off in a two-part episode of the JLA animated series, but never the real thing.
