Great fun stuff!!
Tarzan and the Super 7 was ninety minutes of solid, slam-bang action from start to finish. Though the stories were pro-social, as was the norm for kidvid of the era, Filmation lavished the shorts with attention, with body rotoscope, motion control, effects animation, and superb background artwork.
Each of the 7 segments were solid. Tarzan was beautifully animated, a highwater mark for tv animation up until that point. The New Adventures of Batman weren't quite as good, but respectably so, and a great deal of fun in their own right. Of the original animated segments, it's hard to choose just one favorite. Web Woman, Superstretch and Microwoman, and Manta and Moray were all good shorts with good animation and stories. Jason of Star Command was a wonderful little science fiction serial, with great special effects, and reminiscent of the old sf serials of the 40s like Undersea Kingdom and Flash Gordon.
All in all, a spectacular little series, with high quality segments and a pace that doesn't let up from start to finish. The series should be seen again!!
