42 YEARS AGO TODAY - SEPTEMBER 10, 1966
It was a Saturday, and millions of kids tuned in to CBS that morning to see this sensational line-up of brand new color cartoons! Inspired by the smash-hit BATMAN TV show, the new line-up was called SUPER HEROES SATURDAYS ON CBS. There was SPACE GHOST and DINO BOY, FRANKENSTEIN JR. and THE IMPOSSIBLES, SUPERMAN with SUPERBOY & KRYPTO and THE LONE RANGER. I hope we see official DVD releases of Hanna-Barbera's FRANKENSTEIN JR. and THE IMPOSSIBLES and Filmation's SUPERBOY. I scanned the above image from the terrific book, HAL LIFSON's 1966.
