Storyline

A rocket carrying four young people--scientific genius Reed Richards, his World War II buddy Ben Grimm, his wife Sue Richards and Sue's hot-headed brother Johnny Storm--is bombarded by cosmic rays while orbiting the Earth. The radiation gives them special powers: Richards can now stretch his limbs, Johnny can burst into flame, Sue can render herself invisible, while Ben has been physically transformed into a big orange rock and given super-strength. They decide to name themselves The Fantastic Four, and use their powers to battle world-dominating villains such as Doctor Doom and The Mole Man. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@soltec.net>

Trivia

Uatu the Watcher had appeared a year prior on a The Incredible Hulk segment of "The Marvel Super Heroes". Luckily, Hanna-Barbera was able to get the rights to allow him to appear on this cartoon as he is more closely associated with The Fantastic Four as he made his first appearance in "The Fantastic Four" (vol. 1) #13.

The Classics never die
31 January 2002 | by primeopSee all my reviews

In my eyes, this version of the Fantastic Four is the best overall. Number one, all the voices are great except for Doctor Doom... he's not really scary enough. But Reed and all the gang have their ultimate voices here, especially Reed and Ben! Even the Mole Man has a cool voice.

In the Silver Surfer/Galactus episode, they captured the essence of both characters far better than the 90's cartoon did in their telling of the tale (but they more than made up for it the following season). You get to see the Molecule Man, Super Skrull, and you KINDA get to see Namor... the other toon company had the rights for Namor's own series, so they actually replaced him with a Triton like character.

The animation may not look all that great, but the tone and mood are just like the classic comics that inspired them.
