Animated World of DC Comics: Battle at the Earth's Core (1978)

Even though the following video uses the intro from The All-New Super Friends Hour, which marks its 40th anniversary this year, the episode, "Battle at the Earth's Core" came a year later, as evidenced by the episode title card.

Anyway, the Wonder Twins are with a new friend, Capt. Pierre Marcelle, just outside of Honolulu, when the boat they're sailing on is sucked into a huge whirlpool. The Super Friends follow the trail, and find a bizarre world at the earth's core, but not the same as in "Invasion of the Earthors" from the previous year.

The scene where the first tar monster appears was used as part of the opening montage for The World's Greatest Super Friends the very next year.

Rating: A-.
