19. THE MARVEL SUPER HEROES (Syndicated, 1966)
Though it didn’t last long, The Marvel Super Heroes was the company’s first foray into the world of animation, and it gave comic book fans everywhere a completely new roster of characters to latch on to. The show ran five days a week, with a different hero starring every day, such as Captain America, Hulk, Iron Man, Thor, and the Sub-Mariner.
These episodes didn’t feature traditional animation; instead, they were mostly recreations of the original comic book panels that moved slightly and were lip-synched to a certain degree. But despite the lackluster production values, these cartoons introduced the Marvel Universe to kids everywhere with stories that almost perfectly resembled the comics.
