Animated World of DC Comics: What happens when the Super Friends are forced to fight each other? (1978)

The Super Friends are thrust into a totally untenable situation in this 1978 offering.

Mr. Mxyzptlk (Frank Welker) fancies himself a filmmaker all of a sudden, and decides to write and direct "The Rise & Fall of the Super Friends". However, and predictably, the heroes find a way out of this mess.

We know Superman is vulnerable to magic, and so Mxyzptlk's spell works especially on him, just not enough to make him a ham actor. Bear in mind, too, this was made to capitalize on the live-action "Superman" feature film that came out earlier that year.

Rating: B.
