|Doc Magnus presents...|
they do present Doc as a very stereotypical 1960s comic book scientist, complete with that attitude, but since the show is comedic (for the most part) it works well.
the beginning battle is against Chemo, who doesn't look exactly like his original comic book counterpart, but acts pretty much like him. he shoots his deadly acid spray, but the sound effect that accompanies it is very familiar to many of the readers of this blog. I'm surprised they didn't get sued by Toho...
Gas Gang, who in the cartoon were the scientists that got killed in an earlier explosion. they look pretty similar to their comic book versions as well.
I loved the episode. the Metal Men aren't done, as they show up at least two more times in the series. Tin doesn't stutter, and Mercury isn't nearly as supercilious as he was in the comic (wish he had said he was the only metal liquid at room temperature) but the rest were good.
I do wish Hanna-Barbera would have adapted this into a cartoon in the 60s. that would have rocked.
