Animated World of DC Comics: Green Lantern vs. Evil Star (1967)

"Evil is as Evil Does" was the first of 3 Green Lantern shorts produced by Filmation, and the only one to use a villain from the comics, Evil Star.

For reasons known only to the producers, GL (Gerald Mohr) was given a Venusian sidekick, Kyro, rather than use mechanic Thomas Kalmaku, aka Pieface, who was GL's confidant in the comics. Now, what could be so wrong about Kalmaku that he had to be replaced? He wasn't a stereotype! Sharp eared fans might notice that Paul Frees uses virtually the same voice pattern for Kyro that he did 2 years earlier for Morocco Mole, the sidekick to Secret Squirrel. Frees also is the voice for Evil Star and the Guardians of the Universe.

Rating: A-. (The first one was the best)
