From Comics to Toons: The Fantastic Four vs. Blastaar (1967)

The Fantastic Four have their hands full with Blastaar, the living bomb-burst in this 1967 episode.

Blastaar (the correct spelling) would return in the 1978 series, but that script was decidedly inferior by comparison.

Rating: B.

Despite all the reboots on TV and film for the FF, this version is still the best of them all!

The characterizations are much closer to what they should be, the voice work perfectly matched, and the action is non stop! True it's a bit simpler in terms of plotting and dialogue but at least the group doesn't have pointy chins!

The pointy chins were the problem with the last series (World's Greatest Heroes), as well as a graffiti'd "4" on Ben's chest. Moonscoop got lazy, and it cost them. They still haven't figured out how to properly treat licensed properties with respect.
