Over the next thirteen weeks I'm a taking on a special project. I want to watch and review every episode of of the Grantray-Lawrence Marvel Super Heroes cartoon from 1966.
Webpages like Marvel Animation Age and World's Finest Online are a great resource for many current and classic superhero cartoons, but I can't seem to find any webpages that focus on this classic piece of superhero animation history. I want to make Animated Superheroes that source.
The series is made up of five segments, each focusing on a different hero. I will be watching it as it originally aired:
Mondays: Captain America Tuesdays: Incredible Hulk Wednesdays: Invincible Iron Man Thursdays: Mighty Thor Fridays: Prince Namor the Sub-Mariner
I think most of these episodes are on youtube, so please follow along and leave your comments!
Also, if anyone out there has any information on this series and can point me to webpages, books or other sources, please let me know. I am especially interested in voice actors and directors. (I've already checked the common places - Wikipedia, imdb, bcdb, etc.)
I am also interested if anyone can find the original airdates. The dates that I have listed on this site are incorrect as I have just looked up a 1966 calendar and it shows that September 1st as a Thursday, not a Monday. I would appreciate any help you can give me!
What's Tony's Ringtone?
I went to see Iron Man on opening night last week, and aside from it being a totally awesome movie, there was one other thing that got me excited.
Tony Stark's ringtone was the theme song from the Iron Man segment of The Marvel Superheroes from 1966! I know that you would have to be a huge geek to know this, but I heard it a few other times throughout the movie worked into the background music.
Animated Superheroes (ASH) is a large project by one man who loves cartoons and superheroes.
The site is constantly being updated with new content, including episode and DVD reviews, characters bios, theme songs and up to the minute news!
Please feel free to add your own comments on anything in this site!
