Animated World of DC Comics: The Super Friends search for "The Antidote" (1977)

Apache Chief made his debut in this short from The All-New Super Friends Hour, teaming with Wonder Woman to find "The Antidote" to save a village whose citizens have been poisoned by a band of cobras. Note here that a different actor voiced Apache Chief in this tale. All subsequent appearances have Michael Rye, also the voice of Green Lantern, in the role.

Plus: A craft lesson with Aquaman (Norman Alden).

Well, it could've gotten worse, couldn't it?

Rating: B-.

I do remember this ep, but didn't realize until now that a diff VA was used for him.

Although Apache Chief was created to add "color" to the Superfiends, he wasn't forgotten and has turned up in Justice League/JLU (As "Longshadow") and even the current series, "Young Justice" is rebooting the character as a friend of Jaime Reyes (Blue Beetle III). His chaaracter may likely also be called, "Longshadow" as it is the character's surname on the series.

Hmmm. Seems they're going out of their way to make reparations after the way Apache Chief was misused on Harvey Birdman: Attorney-at-Law 11 years ago. Sounds to me like someone at WB Animation was offended by [adult swim]'s misusage, and.....!

Now, all we need on YJ would be.....well, do I really need to tell you?

The Wonder Twins?

They did have Wendy & Marvin appear so you never know!

Am I that predictable?

I haven't been following YJ lately, so I do have to catch up. Methinks a DVD purchase or three might do the trick.......!
