Animated World of DC Comics: The Super Friends meet Mr. & Mrs. Mole (1973)

A misguided couple think they have a solution to some of their problems, or at least under the surface, by stealing air conditioning units. The Super Friends encounter "The Mysterious Moles".

If there was anything that marked this initial season of the franchise, it was the recurring theme of having well meaning but misguided people causing problems. Remember, Hanna-Barbera couldn't use any of the villains just yet, that would come later, and the anti-violence rules were in effect.

Rating: B.

And that's what makes this first season so fascinating for me, and my favorite. The villains were well-meaning and had a purpose to their plots other than stealing/extorting money or gaining power or just being evil for evil's sake.

Well meaning, but misguided, actually, and this trope, as previously noted, was also used on Yogi's Gang that same season.
