If you all didn't watch the Superfriends where did you learn about the Justice League characters?   This one is blowing my mind.   Even being in an all girls house we didn't miss our super heros.

Then there was the Challenge of the Superfriend where they battled the Legion of Doom on every episode.   I loved those shows.   I bought my kids a box set of the shows and they loved it too.

I was born in 80, so I could have watched it and just not remember, I guess.

Yup, Cara, you could have played with the neighborhood kids. And if you're a tsunami, I'll have to be a whale so I can swim along with you. And we can't forget our monkey, Gleek.

Susan, it blows my mind that you haven't heard of the Superfriends.   I looked it up.   It was on from 1973-1983.   Superman, Batman, Robin, Aquaman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern, and then they added the Wonder Twins Zan and Jayna.

Growning up, the neighborhood kids used to play Superfriends outside.   I was always Jayna.

I also loved Fat Albert.   I had a friend who was required to watch it every Saturday.  They did have good life lessons on the shows.

My girls did not watch any of these that I know of.  They watched Smurfs, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and My Little Pony

Tracy, I haven't heard of Super Friends, but I loved the rest and also Looney Tunes!  My girls enjoy watching Looney Tunes.  They DVR them and watch them too.
