Animated World of DC Comics: The Super Friends discover a heat wave that's Too Hot to Handle (1973)
An alien scientist, seeking to relocate his planet's population to a climate similar to their own after pollution upsets their home world, arrives on Earth and creates a heat wave that's "Too Hot To Handle" for the Super Friends. Narrator Ted Knight (The Mary Tyler Moore Show) doubles as the Flash, who makes his H-B debut.
This was one of two eco-themed cartoons H-B produced in 1973. Ecology, and pollution in particular, was the central theme of another ABC frosh, Yogi's Gang.
