Ain't he unglamo-rays!

Anyone old enough out there to remember the original Marvel Superheroes cartoons? Me neither since they were first aired in 1966 aka "the year all things began". For me, at least. But I did watch them in re-runs back in the early 70's and I have never been able to get the theme songs out of my head.

Hold on...go here and listen to them. Please ignore that horrible Batgirl song. Blech. It should not even be on this page as the rest are all Marvel cartoons. And the Amazing Spider-Man cartoon really isn't associated with The Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Iron Man or The Sub-Mariner. It was its own separate show. The others may have been too, but when I saw them in re-runs they were packaged as "The Marvel Marching Society" or something like that. Fond memories galore!

You just can't beat lyrics like:

Tony Stark makes you feel
He’s a cool exec with a heart of steel.

As Iron Man, all jets ablaze,
He’s fighting and smiting with repulsor rays!

Amazing armor! That’s Iron Man!
A blazing power! That’s Iron Man!

I know that Slyde is really going to be the only one who appreciates this post. Oh well, he needs some loving sometimes too.

And your Hulk avatar is so much more modern than the 1966 version.

Good lord.
I do remember watching the green lantern and hating it.
Does that count?

Slyde said...

green lantern is DC, not marvel.

so no, it doesnt count!

Verdant Earl said...

Kat - Wow! I don't even remember a green lantern cartoon, and I was/am a comic-book geek!

Slyde - No need to get nasty with your anti-DC ways.

hey slyde. meeow. down kitty.

earl- I could never forget. It seemed like the only boring thing on the tube on a boring sunday morning at my extraordinarily boring grandparents house. I used to dread them babysitting. Did I mention it was boring? I mean cmon. We ate bran flakes for breakfast with burnt toast and sliced butter because they kept it in the freezer. Ya. All that from green lantern.
