Saturday Morning's Forgotten Heroes: The Herculoids vs. The Invisibles (1981)

Eddie Frank brings us a Herculoids adventure from Space Stars. Space Ghost (Gary Owens) makes a timely appearance when Zandor (Mike Road) and his crew encounter a rebel tribe of monkey people who've used a means to become "The Invisibles".

Come to think of it, the writers may have been given some plotlines rejected from Super Friends to use for the Hercs. This should've been totally discarded.

Rating: C-.

These toons just aren't up to the originals. More butt kicking was needed and to be honest, if the show had been expanded, perhaps they could have had Space Ghost & The Herculoids at a half hour each.

I'm still wishin' & hopin' for a respectable reboot. All but fruitless, I know.

Oh, y'mean if they went to 90 minutes for Space Stars. Yeah, I could see that. Dump Astro & the Space Mutts, sub in Galaxy Trio for another 60's revival, and still have the finale. You'd give Space Ghost a 15 minute story, one for the Hercs, Teen Force, and Galaxy Trio, the close it with the finale. How simple is that? Not simple enough for the simpletons at NBC......
