Saturday Morning's Forgotten Heroes: The first episode of the Super Six (1966)

DePatie Freleng made its first inroad into NBC on September 10, 1966, with the debut of The Super Six. Of course, you know that Gary Lewis & the Playboys recorded the show's theme.

The first episode features Super Bwoing (Charles Smith), whose voice was modeled after Jimmy Stewart. Captain Whammo (later Zammo) makes a brief cameo in the short, "Coldpinky", with Paul Frees narrating. Elevator Man and the Brothers Matzoriley are also heard from.

Rating: C.
