Crisis of Infinite Episodes - The Space Knights of Camelon

There is a line between fan service and outright pandering that the creators of this season of Super Friends clearly crossed. This episode just took a bunch of things "kids love" and put them in a stew including Superman, King Arthur, lightsabers, and aliens. While it was fun seeing Superman as a masked Black Knight,  it was a real stretch, even for this series, to introduce an alien planet ruled by King Arthur 7 (as well as a planet of cavemen who spoke English). The episode culminated in an epic joust between Batman and and amnesiac Superman. I am not sure if this episode was terrible, or one of the greatest episodes ever.
