The Fantastic Four is a series that aired from September 9, 1967 to September 21, 1968 originally airing the same day as Spider-Man. It was the second Marvel Comics animated series. It was also the first to adapt a single comic book series as The Marvel Super Heroes had been a combination of several different series.

Story

Similar to The Marvel Super Heroes, the episodes were directly adapted from the Stan Lee and Jack Kirby comics with a few exceptions. The character of Namor was unavailable as his rights were given for another series, so the character of Triton was created in his place. Also, Alicia Masters did not appear so Invisible Girl takes her place in convincing Silver Surfer to turn against Galactus.

Animation

The series featured "crash effects" to represent various violence, similar to the 1966 series Batman. [1]
