in tribute to the late Carmine Infantino, here's one of Filmation's superhero cartoons, featuring two of his characters, including one he at least co-created, the wrongly colored Kid Flash. super speed in cartoons would seem to be a much easier thing to animate, and Filmation did a pretty good job here. the menace isn't that great, you'd think this was the 1950s, but it fits in well for a 6 minute episode.

I love the opening of the episodes, the powers are succinctly explained for the casual Saturday morning viewers of cartoons. they did this for every "guest hero" they did, and they are great. Ted Knight's narration is pretty awesome. oh, don't look for Wally here, he's not in this episode!
