After what seemed an eternity, my cable company picked up Boomerang. Besides fabulous classic cartoons, I was pleasantly surprised to find 1967 filmation Superman/Aquaman bumpers during the Justice League and Batman hour. Does anyone have more information about the Superman/Aquaman hour?

It's awesome! The writers were the same as the Silver Age writers on the comic, pure Silver Age Superman on TV! However, don't get too excited, since the animation makes Superfriends look like the old Fleischer Cartoons  Embarrassed Undecided

I sort of dig the animation, well at least the character designs. Wink Hey, I was wondering, what was the release schedule for this series? It's funny, most websites list 1967 shows by superhero but not actual order.  I've decided to rip each short and place them in sequential order. Any help would be fantastic.

Cool, the second episode of the All-New Superfriends Hour just finished. I've never watched ANSFH except on youtube so this is another treat.  Grin

I'm pretty sure the 1960's Superman cartoons went like this: 

Superman/Superboy Hour:  1966 

Superman/Aquaman Hour:  1967 

Batman/Superman Hour:  1968 

Batman was, of course, on ABC-TV between 1966 and 1968, so he couldn't appear in cartoons with other heroes on CBS until his show was cancelled.   

There were, besides numerous cartoons of Superman, Superboy, Aquaman, and Batman, 3 cartoons of each of the following: 

Justice League 

Teen Titans 

Green Lantern 

Atom 

Flash 

Hawkman 

The Justice League's membership consisted of: 

Superman 

Green Lantern 

Atom

Flash 

Hawkman 

The Teen Titans' membership was: 

Aqualad 

Kid Flash 

Speedy 

Wonder Girl 

I always thought it weird that Speedy and Wonder Girl were in Titans, while their mentors were nowhere to be seen!  And Aqualad appeared in MORE cartoons than Aquaman!   

If you search YouTube, you CAN find all 3 Justice League cartoons, too!  Smiley

Thanks!

Filmations are now only playing after the Herculoids just before 3:30am EST. I've finished most Aquaman and JLA segments. A few nights ago, a Superboy short aired.  Cheesy

So far, I captured almost all Superfriends episodes. Grin I quite enjoy this romp through past DC cartoons. While HB animation lacks in some episodes, storywise, well as an example, last night, our favorite Superfriends crossed paths with Middle Earth folk! Batman was a Hobbit for goodness sake!

Comics/animation legend Alex Toth designed the Super Friends.

I think whoever did the Filmation designs was paying close attention to Swan, Papp and Plastino's work on Supes at the time.

If you really want to pay close attention, you film the actual comic book art, then crudely animate around it.  Smiley

Even with the crude animation I always likes these Filmation shorts because they're so close to the Silver Age comics.
