Once again, the character names earned the sole chuckle for the episode. I have to admit, Sinestropotamus is a funny name. But I do not have to fess up to any other aspects of the short being funny because they weren't

Any episode that opens with an ostrich powered by an ice wind sail gets points in the plus column right away. The shrinking plot was just icing on the cake. Sure it was preposterous, but Wonder Twins in a pinball machine was a bit of fun and Wonder Woman at any size is always a treat.

When an underwater earthquake caused a giant whirlpool, scientists were sucked into another realm full of pirates. Luckily Aquaman was nearby to stop the pirate from conquering the world with an unarmed two-man science submarine. Oh, and the pirates were also ghosts. This earns a solid mediocre rating. It wasn't great, but it wasn't that ridiculous either - aside from ghost pirates... and the existence of a sub aquatic realm under the bottom of the sea with its own atmosphere and sun... yeah maybe it was bad.

More than a Superman (or Batman for that matter) story, Apocalypse is about Supergirl. This modern day origin for Kara Zor-El tells of Kal-El's cousins orientation to the world, trapped between all the various powers that would use her for their own purposes rather than let her be her own person. By the end, she decided to don the familiar \S/ shield and to assume the moniker, Supergirl.
Yep, it was terrible - though an octopus / ice unicycle combo does deserve at least half a star - functional and kinky. Seriously, though, what was the point of either of those transformations. Absurd is one thing, this is just nonsense. I really want to go on a rant about how bad this was, but it seems silly to get so angry over a 30 year old episode of Super Friends. Still, this was one of the worst most pointless things ever made. I feel simultaneously bad for the people who had to make this to maintain a livelihood and angry that this was someone's idea of an "honest day's work." Maybe this was a school project or something. In that case, I guess it should earn at least a C for being better than a diorama.

After the first 3 seconds I was already mad at this one. So, there is a giant named Colossus that "walks" through space... Maybe Sir Isaac Newton can explain to me how that works. Anyways, at least he wasn't a storm cloud. Anyways, that was just the start of the Physics issues because if a cosmic colossus really put Earth in a bottle I am pretty sure everyone would die. I do like Apache Chief so it was good to give him a starring role, but really, if he could grow to the size of a galaxy, why not just do that every time? And why was Colossus more of a pain when he was normal sized than when he was a billion miles tall? This series is getting very stale.

"You have painted yourself into a corner amigo." Every now and then I am pleasantly surprised by one of these episodic bits of tid and this was another hidden gem. Not only did we get the encore performance of El Dorado, but the debut of an interesting villain with Palatte who could bring paintings of monsters to life to commit crimes. It wasn't Shakespeare or even a classic, but the solvent wielding painter was a bit of fun. Its just too bad Wonder Woman fought the devil, I would have loved to see El Dorado vs El Diablo.
