Marvelous Animation Tour - Fantastic Four (1994)



Hoping to repeat the success of 1992's instant classic X-Men animated series, The Fantastic Four received their 3rd animated series in 1994. Although this series lasted just 26 episodes spread over two seasons, it did survive longer than the previous two animate attempts.

The first season is pretty much what did the series in. Even though stories were adapted from classic comic tales including the coming of Galactus, they were just not done very well.

After the poorly received first season, season two received much quality improvement in the form of better animation, less annoying humor, new costume designs, and a new intro song and sequence.





Indeed, the second was markedly improved. The Inhumans became recurring characters and whereas Galactus first season appearance was brutally boring, his appearances in the second season episodes were epic.


Many characters from the Marvel Universe stopped by during the series run including Hulk, the Black Panther, Daredevil, Thor, and Ghost Rider. Alas, The Fan 4 would return yet again in the next decade for another attempt to get a third season.
