Jan 26, 2020

"The Shamon U"

Aired: October 13, 1973

A scientist has discovered the means to mine the skies above for gold from passing meteors.  But his get rich quick scheme has a horrible after effect for the ecology of our planet and the Super Friends must stop him before it's too late. 

John is making this episode sound better than what it seems in his opinion, while Dan Greenfield of 13th Dimension finds some things to praise about the story.  Together, they discuss the James Bondian nature of some of these stories, the vocal talents of Shannon Farnon, and the usefulness of Aquaman in these early episodes.

John references The Ultimate Super Friends Companion by Will Rodgers.  Check it out for yourself by purchasing a copy via Amazon.


Dan Greenfield is the editor and co-creator of, a website devoted primarily to comics and pop culture, past and present. To him, the basic food groups are Batman, Planet of the Apes, Star Trek (the Original Series), James Bond, the Beatles and the Stones. But if he had to he'd be able to subsist on Batman alone. Channel 11 in New York was his favorite syndicated channel as a kid -- you can guess why -- followed closely by Channel 5. Channel 9 didn't really enter into it unless he was home sick and there wasn't much else on. He's married to his remarkably patient wife Wendy and his best sidekick is his son, Sam. They have two cats,Lex and Zod.
