Crisis of Infinite Episodes - DC Super Heroes

In 1968's Superman / Aquaman Hour of Adventure, episodes of Superman, Superboy, and Aquaman, were mashed together with those of a rotating slate of guest heroes including the Atom, the Flash (with Kid Flash), Green Lantern, Hawkman, the Justice League (comprised of all the adult heroes including Superman), and the Teen Titans (with regularly featured kid sidekicks Aqualad and Kid Flash joined by Wonder Girl and Speedy).

Each guest was given just three episodes to make their mark; however, in spite of the small episode order, each set of hero was also given a pretty royal treatment. All of the heroes got their own introductory title sequence and most of the solo heroes got a sidekick for their adventures. Only the Atom had to work alone. These episodes are all collected and currently available on DVD as DC Super Heroes: The Filmation Adventures.
