To go along with KC’s review of the new Super Friends DVD set, here’s a clip with Superman and Aquaman:
Superman’s face looks odd as he talks, but hey! Aquaman’s got a jet ski to go along with his “keen aquatic senses”! And I dig that Ted Knight narration.
But why would Aquaman need a je…. y’know I just have to let the nostalgia wash over me and stop asking questions.
I have one possible answer for that: action figure!
Oh you reminded me of the Supermobile! The toy folks wanted to give Superman some sort of vehicle they could peddle, so he got stuck with the terrible and unnecessary Supermobile: http://dc.wikia.com/wiki/Supermobile
It even made an appearnce on Super Friends. The problem was Danny Dark (Superman’s voice actor) kept mispronouncing it as “Super MO-bil” rather than “Mo-BEEL,” so it sounded like Supes was riding in a super-kinetic art sculpture rather than a souped-up car.
