Animated World of DC Comics: Green Lantern in "The Vanishing World" (1967)

We wrap up our weekend salute to the 1967 Green Lantern shorts with the middle episode in the series, "The Vanishing World". An ambitious space criminal abducts Kyro (Paul Frees), hoping to use him to lure Green Lantern (Gerald Mohr) to an asteroid that only appears in our dimension for an hour per year. Narrator Ted Knight voices the villain and subs for Frees as the Guardian in this story.

Easily the weakest of the three episodes in terms of plotting, as GL never makes actual contact with the villain.

Rating: B-.
