A good natured, highly energized Anime style animation take on Marvel's Fantastic Four characters, pitting them against most of their classic foes: the Skrulls, Dr. Doom, Mole Man, etc.
The voice acting is decent for the most part, with Brian Dobson being the stand out as Ben Grimm/The Thing, the writing and overall characterizations are good natured and not overly in your face with hipness and cynicism - though they do tend to overplay the Human Torch/Johnny Storm as a kind of reckless male bimbo - and the animation is bright & perky in its Japanese Anime type of way. The writing may not be Earth shattering - at times it feels like they tried to mix the happy go luckiness of Superfriends with the action sequences of various DCAU shows and even previous Marvel shows like the early 90s X-Men or Incredible Hulk season 1 - but it's still better than the 2005/2007 Fantastic Four movies directed by Tim Story of all people (at least the show remembers that Sue is a beautiful Caucasian woman and not a pasty skinned Hispanic girl with a bad bleach job).
All in all, decent entertainment. There are worse ways you can spend your time.
