Tooniversary: Super Friends vs. The Invisible Menace (1977)

From The All-New Super Friends Hour:

Superman & Aquaman must rescue a kidnapped scientist (narrator Bill Woodson in a dual role) and his experimental mining device from a greedy undersea pirate named Nemis in "The Invisible Menace":



Yes, Nemis was inspired by Jules Verne's Captain Nemo (20,000 Leagues Under The Sea), just a couple of years after Hanna-Barbera had mounted an adaptation of the novel for CBS' Famous Classic Tales. Just two years later, they would use another Nemo analogue for an episode of The World's Greatest Super Friends.

Rating: B.
