    I used to LOVE that show as a kid! Of course my fav was the Phantom but I was never to wild about the kids angle. Still, it’s definitely in my top 10 of cartoons past and present!!

    I never saw this series when it was first run, but I did catch some episodes in later DVD compilations. What’s interesting to me is that the concept, as a whole, could still work even though the various comic strips may not be as popular as they once were.

    It’s also pretty interesting to see a series with 65 episodes, while today’s shows are often lucky to hit 13 or 26. Spectacular Spider-Man, Wolverine and the X-Men… lots of great shows aimed at this demographic just get shut down after a few episodes.
