24. FANTASTIC FOUR (ABC, 1967-1968)
With only 20 episodes, Fantastic Four wasn’t the longest-running comic book show out there, but it was one of the most impactful. The show, which was produced by Hanna-Barbera, was highlighted by skillful storytelling and voice-acting so perfect that it’s still hard to read the comics without hearing them in your head.
This cartoon also hit the air just six years after the comic book was created, so most people had never even heard of the Fantastic Four before, which gave the show the advantage of being completely original for a lot of its audience. Not only is this still the best Fantastic Four cartoon ever, but it easily outdoes the team’s live-action movies as well.
