Aired: September 17, 1977
Batman, Robin and Superman must stop The Secret Four from upsetting the world's oil supplies. Next, the Wonder Twins teach two lessons when there's a "Tiger on the Loose". Then, the combied Justice League takes on Dicktor and his quest to conquor time. Finally, Wonder Woman and special guest, Apache Chief race to obtain much needed snake venom, but first they must get past the giant cobra, Katuru.
John and Dan Greenfield of 13th Dimension discuss the World's Finest vibe of the opening story, the unusual choices of forms in the Wonder Twins story and the 70s porn stache of Kalmo.
Dan 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 13thDimension.com, 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.
